Why I Love to Coach & Mentor Traders

I’ve been extremely fortunate in my life. I work harder than most and my discipline is unmatched, but I’m also lucky in some regard – and I know it. Taking a page from Napoleon Hill and others, I believe that it’s important to give back to the community. Doing free webinars is one way, and helping traders in a more customized manner for them to evolve is yet another.

It’s important to me spiritually to help other traders, even if they don’t become consulting clients per se. I personally respond to each email I receive and do my best to point people in the right direction even if there isn’t a good fit for our working together.

Yes, I do have premium consulting services, but the most valuable feedback that I receive – and what I value the most – is when I get an email out of the blue from someone who I’ve coached or steered right, that expresses their gratitude for my help. I love a full karma bank!

Here is some of that feedback:

Hi Martin,

I am a trader in United Kingdom & have been following your blog for last 4 years, its the first thing i check every day when i get online. It would not be understatement on my part to say that there is nobody else who influenced my trading and emotional outlook as much as you have. I remember my self 4 years ago as someone who is trend follower & trying to trade every market mechanically. I had no idea about the roll of probabilities, position sizing and risk control. The advice everywhere is that dont trade more than 1% of total equity.

I just wanted to say thank you for all of your work. Reading your book taught me to kill my ego… My life has never been the same since. I just wanted to take a min to remind you that your work is changing lives…

Warmest Regards,
Houston, Texas

Thanks again for your emails back a few months ago. Your advice really helped me get through some tough times, and your words of encouragement got me off my Plateau. If I wrote you 1,000,000 times and said “Thank you”, that still would not suffice.

Happy Holidays,
Houston, Texas

Dear Michael,

…I read your book last night. So much tension dropped from my body because of all the pressure your words released. Very helpful insights for my many terrifying situations.

Although I have heard of the idea before, you explain using feelings to trade in a way that is very helpful. I hope to improve on this skill as I go forward.
