While trading has a variety of upside benefits and potential, there are also many challenges that make consistently performing the skill a huge hurdle. The problem in many situations is people only focus on the positive sides of trading. From a business sense, I can understand their model. It sure is easier to sell a product or service when you give off the impression trading is easy and money making can happen quickly. However, all that does is set people up for failure due to a lack of alignment of perspective and reality. Thanks to our guest, Michelle (‘MichelleS’ in the chatoom), we have a very open and honest insight into some of the various challenges that traders face. She has a nice knack for creating analogies to explain things, so I thoroughly enjoyed talking with her and understanding her journey. In fact, be sure to stick around until the very end as she was so honest that she totally revealed something near the end that sparked a whole new discussion (and an important one!). Michelle is a great asset to our community and this episode is certainly going to be worth your time. Let’s get to it!
