“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing”-Dale Carnegie
Learning how to trade was the best decision I made this year.
I love the chance to be humbled and start as a beginner at something new. Whether it’s learning a new language, writing (and publishing) a book, starting a blog and podcast, learning to dance, or how to invest.
It all began when my friend Drew Taylor of Digital Nomad University gave me a “tip” about an artificial intelligence trading software that he was using.
I had absolutely zero idea how it worked.
But I’m a big believer in automation as the biggest opportunity of our time so I was very keen to give it a shot.
His “pitch” was that all of the flights for his recent trip to Thailand were covered by the software, and he had screenshots of his profits to prove it.
That resonated with me in a language that I could understand.
Pretty much out of the box, I set this software up, added $1k to my trading account and watched as it quietly earned $15 – 20 per night while I slept. I logged in to the software from my hotel room in Shenzhen, where nearly the full cost of my room was covered.
As a lifelong entrepreneur, I was amazed by the ability to earn real (serious) income on my phone without any marketing, without any product, and without any customers.
Trading has become my new passion
Ever since I begun this spring, I’ve been watching videos, reaching out to mentors, joining groups on Telegram, and trying to grow my ability the best way I can.
And the efforts have been rewarded. After a few months I was able to double my account, and then I doubled it again.
Recently I made $1400 over the weekend selling gold (XAUUSD), my best take to date. To earn that kind of money with only a few minutes of work (basically pressing a button) changes my entire paradigm of what is possible in regards to wealth creation.
The true reward isn’t even about the money, though. I firmly believe that having a wide range of interests that have nothing to do with one another makes you smarter.
It activates parts of the brain that would otherwise atrophy. It teaches how to think differently and approach situations differently. You’re able to draw parallels from different pursuits and discover new and creative approaches to all areas of your life.
As far as trading goes, I love how it’s process-driven. There’s an element of randomness to the market, but we can create a reliable structure to succeed and carve out profits amidst the ups and downs.
I love the fact that people smarter than me have developed algorithms and AI that work on a consistent basis. And I love the fact that I’ve been able to connect with so many smart and talented mentors.
I’ve been able to discover and tap into an entirely new professional network of people who motivate me and inspire me.
In some ways, you could say that making the effort to pursue learning how to trade has improved all areas of my life in the same way that other pursuits have, such as dancing and language learning.
It has given me a new challenge to pursue, and my life is all about these challenges. Without them, there is no growth, only stagnation.
I’m not writing all of this to say that you should also trade. I’m just sharing my own experience in the help that it may be useful to someone. And I highly recommend that you do engage in new pursuits which have nothing to do with your main “hustle.”
And if you do decide to trade, congratulations! You’re making a great choice to take on a worthwhile pursuit, and making the first step towards putting your money to work for you.
You’re in for a profitable and enriching journey.
Feel free to reach out to me on Instagram if you have any questions about how to get started, information about the AI software, connections to trading mentors and Telegram groups.
I’m also writing an guide that shares all of the best money making techniques I’m developing in my own trading process, so look for that soon.
Whatever you decide to do, follow your heart. If you stop and take a moment to listen, it will guide you in the direction you need to go.
As always, sincere wishes for a good life.
