Why Being A Trader Is The Best Gig In The World…

Posted On August 22, 2022 3:35 pm

Dear Reader,

This morning I had to get up early to take care of some I had put off all weekend paperwork before trading.

And I am REALLY glad I did.

As you know, I can walk out of my home and be in the ocean in about 2 minutes. And, trust me, I don’t walk fast.

While I was sitting on my back porch sipping a cup of coffee, the sun started to break the horizon and I witnessed one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen.

It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the sun is when it’s reflecting off the ocean. I couldn’t get John Denver’s lyrics out of my head, “Sunshine on the water looks so lovely…”

Sitting there at rest – not in a rush to get to work, not worrying about money, not stressing over work evaluations, etc…

I realized how lucky I am to have been exposed to this way of making a living so early in my life.

Being a full-time trader is literally the best gig in the world.

I answer to no one, but my subscribers and that’s only because I decided to coach others on how to become traders.

I don’t need to “sell anything,” or deal with employees…

And I can do this from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection.

I choose to do it from Florida because I love the beaches and hate winter.

But if I wanted to travel the world, I could leave tomorrow.

If I wanted to move back up north (yuck! I just shivered 3 times writing that), I could.

If I wanted to live anywhere on Earth – nothing is stopping me.

I am literally the master of my universe…

And THAT feels damned good!

One of my goals with Options360 is to help you become the master of your universe as well.

Yes there’s “work” everyday. (I’m embarrassed calling it work seeing what some men do to make a living. We ain’t climbing cell towers or fishing in the Bering Straits, that’s for sure…)

Of course, there’s a learning curve.

No, no one is going to hand you anything…

But if you put in the work, no one can stop you either.

And the best part, I am here to share my knowledge with you.

However, long or challenging that learning curve is, Options360 will be here with you every step of the way.

My goal is to build a community of like-minded people, at various stages of their options trading journey, and help them reach their full potential.

Who knows, maybe even becoming a full-time trader yourself in the process.

You can start your options trading journey here for $19.

To Your Success,
