One of the reasons why I wanted to start day trading was because it looked so easy; you wake up, you go to rush hour traffic which involves choosing which toothbrush you want that morning, and then you sit down at your computer and go to work.
Sounds pretty easy right?
I used to work at a bank that was less than a mile away from my doorstep. I would get into my car, turn on my iPod (before iPhones existed), and by the time I arrived to work, the song I was listening to wasn’t even over yet.
I could never be satisfied with that, I wanted a job where I can actually trade from bed.
I am that lazy and I am not ashamed to admit it. Being able to work from bed is one of the reasons why I consider day trading to be one of the best businesses to start in 2012. If we aren’t going to be honest with ourselves then we aren’t going to be able to be honest with our day trading.
There is a common adage with day traders, learning how to day trade is as much as looking in the mirror and fixing your own demons as it is about making money.
The reason why I explain this brief story to you is because I’m a pretty laid back person until I have an idea to do something. Once I get an idea in my head I will not rest until it comes to fruition, the LTD project is one of those examples.
In my life there is no Plan B because Plan A is never going to fail
I decided at that hostel in Ushuaia, Argentina, that I wanted to start this new project; not a few days from now, not a week from now, not a month from now. I wanted to get this started right now. They were two young men that I had in mind, I wanted to get to know them get started.
The first person we call Ro, if you haven’t noticed I never say my last name in any of the post or videos on the site because no one can pronounce it. No one can pronounce his full name which is why we just call him Ro.
A young man that came to the United States as a young boy from Cuba so his family could make a better life for themselves.
Before arriving to the United States, his family lived in the interior part of Cuba on a farm. I was intrigued with Ro because my uncle was telling me about his character and the unique way that he has become an entrepreneur in his neighborhood.
The second person that we had in mind was another young man named Vinny. Vinny is from India, happens to be extremely smart, and has had a lot of success with every project that he has been a part of.
He has the Midas touch
Every company that he has worked for, every project that he has put his hands on, has blown up (in a good way). I was excited to speak to both of them so I could get started right away but there were some roadblocks before we could get started.
It’s hard to find people to train because everyone has a life and bills to pay, you can’t just ask someone to pick up and move to another country to start a new career. I wanted to speak to them on the phone to not only let them know about the basics of day trading like indicators and why I day trade Eminis, but also to get an idea of what frame of mind they were in.
I’m going to be putting a lot of resources into this with the most important resource being my time. I’m going to treat this the same way that I trade the training program, when people contact me I let them know that time is my most important asset not money. That is one of the reasons why I let everyone decide how much they wanted to pay in the beginning to get started.
It is about teaching people how to day trade, not anything else
