How serious are you about becoming a successful trader or business owner?
In the start of today’s live training session, I explained how the current corona crisis might just be your best opportunity ever to change your life for the better.
Later on in the video, I show trade setups and trading both M2 & the Earth and Sky combined. I also discussed the stock markets, crypto, Australia and Chinas spat, so a busy session with lots of questions from members too 🙂
So how can we spin the current corona negativity into a very big positive?
One thing we have all learned from the current situation is that now, more than ever, it’s important that you start to find ways to become financially independent, or at least not be dependent on others.
Whether that be an employer or the government, or maybe you are running your own business and you are fed up with it.
Now is a great time to start to move away from your current lifestyle and become the person that you dream of.
Whether that be trading or starting a small business to run alongside your current main source of income. If you are currently in lockdown or working from home, what a great opportunity to get off your butt and make some BIG changes!
Whatever your current source of income, do you enjoy it? Does it make you happy? Do you want to be doing it, possibly for the rest of your life?
If not start to make a plan and follow it through.

I also explain steps that you can take now, to ease yourself out of your current situation and move towards the future you dream of.
I taught this to my daughter 10 years ago when she was 16. Her choices may not be the ones you want to make BUT having choices is the key to improving your life.
If you want to travel and earn as you go, you can do it.
If you are more interested in becoming a successful trader or business owner to give you more security and tell the boss to stick it, do it.
On the trading front, I am working to set up a funding program for successful traders. So if you are now becoming a successful trader and are looking for capital to trade, I will have the opportunity of a solution for you in a few weeks.
If you currently have a job that you can’t afford to leave to follow that dream, I also explained that in the webinar, how to use the current crisis to your advantage. Most folks can not afford to quit their job and take the plunge. To replace their current full-time income with trading or a new business is a step that most people do not have the choice or cojones to do so.
Back to my daughter’s story: She was still at school and then went to university. I explained how important it is to earn a living doing something you love. Ideally working for yourself. At her age that wasn’t so relevant.
She earned an honours degree at university but didn’t know what she wanted to do. I told her to get on a plane and go see the world. Do not get on the “wheel.” Most people do a job that they do not love. They need to earn money to keep a roof over their heads and once the family comes along its very difficult to get off that wheel.
I also explained the importance of being able to work remotely. She has visited almost 30 countries to date. Recently she spent time travelling around Asia. Prior to that, it was 10 European countries, New Zealand and finally Australia for 2 years. In Sydney, She worked for a company who appreciated her work ethic and passion for the job. She persuaded them to let her work remotely. For the last 12 months, she has travelled around Asia: Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and 3 months in Bali. Getting paid an Aussie salary, but having very low expenses in Asia.
How to Achieve the goal: Best Chance to be a Successful Trader or business owner
This is the 1st step in easing your way out of your current employment OR creating time for you to start a new side venture, to run alongside the day job.
If this is of interests I recommend that you read The 4 hour work week” by Tim Ferris.
In the book he explains how to “ease” your way into working from home
(this obviously won’t apply if you are in a job where your attendance is essential).
step 1 is to persuade your employer to allow you to work from home, maybe one day a week initially.
You can explain you will be more productive (make sure that you are)!
You won’t have to spend xx minutes on a commute but can start working earlier.
The goal is to get your boss to agree to increase the days as time goes by.
You want to free up time to be able to trade and or create a side business.
The book goes into a lot of detail re the strategy.
The good news is that with the current COVID 19 outbreak a lot of folks are already doing this and their employers are getting an opportunity to see how it works.
Just this week Twitter has announced that the majority of their staff can work from home permanently.
“If our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen,” a spokesman said.
It can also be beneficial for businesses in that they can downsize their office space and reduce the rent, so everybody wins!
I got off the “wheel” back in 1999 and my life has been 100% better since.
Back then I had a successful business in the UK from which I made a lot of money,
BUT I had got to the stage where I hated it.
I had over 20 staff plus a similar number of subcontractors.
I was stressed to the eyeballs and miserable.
Every morning when I woke I groaned inwardly.
Then set off on a 1.5 hour commute to a business that I had grown to despise.
I was also coming up to my 40th birthday and had recently bought a souped-up red, soft-top sports car, so as my wife pointed out, I had definitely hit my mid-life crisis!
What did I do?
I sold the business (it was like a weight off my back). I swore to never employ anyone ever again (if you have staff you will know exactly what I mean).
My wife and I bought some small houses on the outskirts of Leeds to create a monthly income stream. We sold our own house, cars, the lot and emigrated with our young family to a tiny island off the coast of Africa.
For the next 5 years I was a singer in a band and duo – “Juan and the Man” 🙂 I earned a fraction of what I used to, BUT I was HAPPY! I have never regretted it. The last 20 years have been some of the best in my life. As a musician, I only worked a few hours day and needed to make more money, which is how I fell into trading forex. That gave me the income and freedom to maintain a decent lifestyle in a place that I love.
So if you are currently not enjoying your work. If you are concerned about your financial future, then now is the time to take action!
