The sale’s pitch of “read a book” or “take a course” and then you’re a money making trader is extremely attractive. It seems reasonable to conclude you would sell a whole lot of books and/or courses; however, unfortunately this is not how trading works in the real world. You don’t get to snap your finger while reading a book and then all of a sudden have money rain down from the sky. Trading in the real world is not a snap of your finger, but rather, a journey that requires endurance, passion and… well, time! The whole goal is to aim for a target of continual progression in the right direction. My guest, Scott, shares his journey so far and you’ll notice overall he is putting in higher lows and higher highs in regards to his “trend”. Like us all, his journey and progress has not always been smooth; however, to his credit he is keeping his ax to the grindstone and continuing to sharpen his skills and understand of the market. Scott worked a super unique career back in the day, which I think has brought an interesting perspective of the markets. What does progressing in the right direction look like? How can you tell if you are doing the same? Scott is a great example of it, so let’s get to it!
