Running Late, But, I Have Arrived.

 WHEW.  I apologize for being late.  But, I had to mind the business that pays me.  

So I finished both funded trading challenges.  I have now officially passed these challenges three times.  Not an easy feat.  But, it can be done, and it can be done more than once.  

Led me to make a public post so I can be sure to mark the milestone. #ButGod

I am adding this to my timeline today because I want to see it in a year. 

This is a diagram that I will explain one day.  But what I want you to see know is how it resembles life.  See, I started.  Got some traction.  Had a setback.  Recovered partially.  Got set back again. Partially again.  Tread water. Gained momentum.  Got set back, Got up and tried again.  Then it happened.  Everything I worked for.  Just like that.

There will be storms.  Distractions. Detours. Some losses. You feel like your almost out.  Don't give up ever.  It can't happen unless you keep getting up and trying again. 

This chart is a testimony.  I never want to forget the journey, the lessons, the spankings, the partial victories, and the comeback.

At one point I thought I would die. 

Yes, this chart is what my life looks like. I am beyond grateful.  My prayer is that I never forget the journey.  That as I move forward every piece of wisdom gained, every lesson learned be used to help someone else. 


P.S.  A funded trader is one who after an evaluation period acquires an account to trade that is funded by OPM.  OPM is other people's money.   A funded trader is one who works for a propriety trading firm who assigns them a level of assets to manage.  In return the trading firm and the trader share the profit.  A comparison would be an investment manager at one of our major investment firms like Fidelity, JP Morgan, or Chase, just to name a few.

Starting next week I will chronicle how we got here.  Starting with the new challenge I started in July.

Rebirth of the Blog

Good day everyone!-- 

After careful consideration I decided to set a date to relaunch my return to this blog.  Some may be aware I accepted a corporate position with Fortune 360.  To say the least, the prelaunch of the last 3 months have been challenging and kept me very busy.

However, it has been the best kind of challenge and I have grown by leaps and bounds.  Anything that takes you to the brink and makes you better is a win in my category.  Fortune 360 will officially launch next week and I tell you this labor of love still has me in love. 

In the meantime, I am back in the studio getting some material ready just for you.  I look forward to the new and exciting directions life has taken us!

Post days will be Mondays, July 26, 2021.

 Good day everyone.  

It has been a while since I updated and for that I am ashamed.  My blog content has been anything but consistent.  So very unlike me. I think it is fair to say that with the challenges faced around the world during the past year, I felt the pressure just as many of you have. 

I won't rehash the wounds.  Texas is opening back up.  Recovery will happen.  It will be interesting to see where we end up.  I am sure it will be very different from where we were a year ago.

While I have been inconsistent with writing, I was not inconsistent with Forex trading.  We lost a whole income during this time and had I not learned this skill set I do not know what I would have done.  So many positives in the midst of chaos.  I will share more as we get back to business. 

Had a conversation today with a student.  Brought back some of the best memories.  My former business partners and I use to get up very early several times a week to set expectations with those that were dedicated.  I know they were dedicated.  I held classes at 3am. 

Today, our paths have gone in different directions.  It happens.  But what has not is our passion to help others.  Everyone is still at it.  Showing people that there can be a better way. 

So in honor of my colleagues, I start today with simple compound interest.  What can $25 do when compounded daily?  The results will shock you.  Just so you know, Forex is no longer this family's only investment.  Feel free to come along while we set out to defy the odds and achieve the unthinkable.

Weekly Results 8/2/2020 and Investment Club

Good day everyone!
The weekly results are in and this week was a challenge.
I was out of town for two days.
My internet was completely down when I came home.
The power had an outage.

Still killed it even with the obstacles faced all week long.  Sharing two things this week, first the weekly results:

Second, an investment club my trading buddies found.  We are investing in a trading club that is paying 50% profit on our original investments.  Check out his informational video.

Weekly Results 7/26/2020

Good day eveyrone!-- The results are in!--

This week I am headed out the local Casino for some R&R.  Working on getting things together so I can start teaching others how I am trading US30 and why I no longer trade anything else.

In the meantime, in-between time, the results speak for themselves.

Special Announcement

Good day everyone.

I hope that during these times you are safe and well.  Take care of yourself first!  I am excited about next week.  I will start doing short lives early in the morning.  My days will be on Tuesday and Thursday.  

The goal of the live video will be to show how I find my trades.  Hopefully, these will be about 5 minutes.   Over the weekend I will put together a market recap.  Blog posts will move to Monday in order to include the Market recap.

I realize that this time has been difficult for many.   My family has not been immune.  We have had to deal with just about all the issues that have arrived during these trying times.  The focus has had to change and adapt to our current situation.  But THANK GOD-- I took a listen at something new, learned a skill set, that endures even during the present circumstances.   If I had not been for learning to trade independently, I can not imagine where we would be.

WE have had: 
Family members ill
Total loss of paychecks
Hours cut
Benefits cut
Pay cut

But instead of going backward:
We paid off debt.
All of our current obligations are paid in advance.
Our credit scores have soared.
We are saving money. 

If you or someone you know has had similar situations I would love to help.  Feel free to plug in and let's go!
