Can You Live the Trading Lifestyle?

Can You Live the Trading Lifestyle?

Posted On September 16, 2021 3:30 pm

Something has been on my mind for the last few days, and I want to share it with you. 

Last week I was talking to a friend, about my age, and he was telling me how he is getting burned out. 

“25 years of ‘work, home, work, home’ only to get to the weekend and rest up to do it again.  I can’t wait until I can retire!”

Keep in mind, he’s likely 10 years away from retiring. 

Break Out of the Rat Race…Options360 is Your First Step!

That is so much NOT a part of my reality, it doesn’t normally occur to me that a lot of people live their life like that.

A full-time trader has to be somewhat disciplined, but there’s plenty of room for flexibility.  

For example, thanks to technology I can live where I want.  I don’t have to be in Chicago or NYC.  

So I choose to live on the beach in Florida.  

And every morning I take a 30-second walk and take a swim several times a day. 

Because we aren’t day trading, I can review all our positions and check my watch list…

Then swim or read a book, etc. 

You Can Live a Life of Freedom as Well. Take Your First Step Here

Don’t get me wrong, I put in a full day’s work every day – but I don’t have someone looking over my shoulder telling me where to be and when. 

And even better, when I need to do something during the day, I can.

If I want to take a trip, I can work from anywhere.  

When my kids come for a visit, I can spend lots of time with them.

In short, I have a VERY flexible and fun lifestyle.   

I have always wanted subscribers to Options360 to be able to live my kind of lifestyle if that’s their goal…

Because (to paraphrase the Disney song) yo ho yo ho a trader’s life for me. 

It’s a pretty awesome life.
