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:
From 1 day ago:
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.
From August 14, 2012:
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…
and from the same person 4 days ago:
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.
From December 1:
…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.
