Every day I get emails that say, “Can you show me how to day trade?”
I know a thousand day traders and only two that won’t go bankrupt. So what makes anyone think they will have an edge? How many people listen to me?
Because people are sick of their lives, their relationships, their jobs, and all the lies that have been told to them ever since they learned how to walk.
They want freedom from it.
I get it.
Day trading is the dream. You can make enough money to not care. To do it from anywhere. To be happy.
It won’t work. But people don’t want to believe it. Most people think they have that one special something that will make it work for them.
And it’s true – they do have that one special something. But you can’t get there by day trading first. You can skip right to the being happy part. You can skip right to being free.
