A Personal Story
Hey. It’s Troy. My students, clients, and readers often end up asking me about how I got to where I am today. Curious? Here it is.
My childhood felt pretty normal – whose doesn’t? And then a first of three formative milestones happened. My parents lost every penny they had and then some. It was thanks to aggressive borrowing and a series of poor business decisions. I immediately discovered how fortunate I was to never have to consider money up until then. At the same time, there was a new uncertainty of whether I could finish my degree.
I got over that hurdle and I ushered myself into a business consulting job with a medium-sized firm. The paycheck, benefits, experience, and colleagues were all fantastic. Below the surface was a rising entrepreneurial spirit to trade full-time.
It happened soon afterward. I took the money that I saved up, my trading plan and a deep breath to make a calculated leap into trading for a living.
Did things go exactly according to plan? Nope. But they went well enough that I never had to look back.
“Where do we start?”
It’s a question that I hear a lot. It would be easy for me to give you a plan and tell you to follow it. But that would take away from one of the greatest joys of being an independent trader. The joy is in defining your own path and succeeding by your definition of success.
Trading is like music. There are many instruments, types, and styles. The variations are endless. So the wise thing to do in trading is to start smart. Learn all there is to learn and practice. There are a lot of great resources out there. Some are free and others you have to pay for. Remember this if nothing else. Knowledge is always cheaper than the mistakes that come from not knowing. It’s especially the case with trading.
My writing, training, and coaching were all designed with the desire to help others. Each person will have different takeaways on their unique journeys. I hope I make a positive impact on your path and I urge you to live well, trade well and most importantly BE WELL.
