This is one of my all time favorite episodes. I don’t want to offer up spoilers, so all I’ll say is that if you ever find yourself feeling sorry for yourself or letting the victim card mentality “sneak in”, remember our guest, “Zee”. Zee is a member of the chatroom and someone I had the pleasure to meet at our Florida meet-and-greet event. I still remember talking to him in person and being blown away by his story and genuinely motivated and inspired. Those are not empty words either… in fact, I found his story so inspiring that I invited him over to my other podcast, The Money with Clay Podcast for a more in-depth discussion of his life as a whole. Like I said, I’m not giving any spoilers other than saying, if you need even the slightest bit of inspiration or motivation, Zee’s story will provide it for you without doubt! Let’s get to it!
Today we interview community member Zee. In 2012 he came to the United States because things were not going well for him in his home country. Since he only knew a little English, he had to start with some humble jobs.
After a little bit of time he truly got on his feet. Zee started a family and a business. Now that he had extra income every month he learned about trading from a coworker who was using Robinhood on his phone.
Zee realized that there was no need to rush into trading and throw money at something he didn’t understand yet. After looking at various trading teachers, he ultimately chose to go with the University program based on all the content included. Since his work is mostly seasonal, he had time in the off season to study the material.
He is big into tracking his trade statistics. Journaling is crucial to see where he is currently falling short or excelling. Zee also has a morning routine that he credits for giving him the energy to tackle the markets.
Discipline has been a common theme in Zee’s life and this has definitely helped him trading too. Being competitive can cut both ways but he has been able to use that competitive nature in a positive way to push his growth in the market.
When I was 16 I realized that my life wasn’t going the right direction. It’s not that I did anything wrong. It was just the setup.
I figured out later that he wasn’t really into it. He was just gambling.
I had a lot of energy. I didn’t jump right into trading. I wanted to jump start trading by focusing on my education.
It works for me personally. It gets me out of the comfort zone. I don’t want to be someone who just sits around and does nothing.
I think I’m not great at my trade management. I try to increase my patience when it takes a while to get to my target.
