How I Started My Journey
First of all, it must be said that everybody has to start from somewhere, and I was no different.
So, my journey into trading started accidentally, and unexpectedly, when I was 18 years old. I was kicked out of college, and had no future prospects, and absolutely no income. To get by, I was forced to get a minimum-wage job in a grubby car warehouse, and I absolutely hated it. I had hit a brick wall, physically and mentally, and was more determined than ever to get out. I just couldn’t think of a way to do it.
A couple of months later, something important happened. It was something which would completely transform my life, for the better. This particular night, I stayed at my brother-in-law’s place for the first time, for a posh family meal. He greeted me at the door, and offered to give me a full tour of his (huge) house. We eventually arrived at the office he used to work from home. It was kitted out with screens, which at the time, seemed like they were probably speaking a completely different language. Plus, they were scattered everywhere! I was completely bemused at what I was faced with, and what the stuff on the screens actually meant. I started to speak to him about why he needed so many screens, and what he actually does for a living. When he told me, I had a personal revelation stood right there, in his office.
He told me that he was a Forex trader.
I stood there for a few seconds, in total silence, and said to myself “I absolutely need this…”
I wanted everything that he had
He was working from home, with a nice house, a good income, and screens everywhere. Everything looked so important, and purposeful. I remember that having a purpose was something I was really desperate to have at the time.
A couple of days later, after seeing his office and knowing what he did for a living, the fire in me was sparked, and I was bursting with excitement to ask him if he would teach me everything he knew.
I did ask him later that day, but I was completely gutted by the answer he gave me. He said “he didn’t have the time to dedicate to me right now”, as he was going through his own issues at the time. However, he did give me some really valuable advice and told me to get my head stuck into a few books, and watch some videos. So, that’s exactly what I did, for days and days on end.

A few weeks later
I went back to tell him all about the stuff I had learnt, and to say he was seriously impressed, would have been an understatement! I’d unknowingly proved to him, even as a college drop-out, that I had the exact mindset to succeed. Now I could tell him what the screens in his office were saying, he offered to give me additional trading tips, but only if I was confident enough to invest some of my own money.
This is exactly what I wanted to hear. I thought that the sooner I could make a change, the better. Up to this point, I had managed to scrape £1000 in savings together, from my dead-end job at the garage. It was literally everything I had at the time. I put it straight into a new trading account, and started following his tips religiously, whilst simultaneously continuing to educate myself using the books and videos he had previously recommended.
After a long, solid effort, my balance was only at £725. After all this, I had lost £275 of my own money, and I felt like giving up everything again. He said that I’d had an ‘off period’ which apparently happens, and that I shouldn’t just give up at the first hurdle… Turns out he was right.
Gaining Income Momentum
6 months down the line, and I had made £6,200 profit on my original investment!
I was totally and completely amazed. I had never seen that much money in one place, in my entire life.
This was the first turning point for me, and where I had started gaining some serious momentum with my trading. I invested another £5,000 I had saved from an ISA account, funded by my dead-end job, and also my trading, and got to a point where my balance was just over £11,000.
Now that I was proficient in understanding the trades I was placing (by continuing to follow my brother-in-law’s tips) and I had also put in time into learning how to trade myself, I started placing my own trades, in addition to his original tips… After a few long months of working full time and trading, I was averaging £5,000 to £7,000 a month – and best of all, it was steady! My early profits of £6,200, was now a figure I was seeing every single month.

THe end of my 9-5
I woke up the next Monday, and thought to myself, “Do I really need to go to work today?”
“Nope”, I thought.
A few minutes later, I rang up and actually quit, right here and then, over the phone! This was the next turning point, where my life started to completely revolve around trading. Later that day, I took a trip to the shops with a mission, and splashed out on a few more gadgets to aid my trading. I got home, and from then on, I went into full-time, hardcore trader mode, analysing charts all day, every day, and I loved it. I had a purpose, and an income to help me realise it.
Fast-forward 5 years, and here we are.
To date, I’ve made well over 6 figures in profit, I own multiple properties, a nice car, have an expensive shopping habit, and I am getting close to the 7 figure profit mark with every day that passes.
I now teach other people to trade and how to change their life, just like how my brother-in-law did for me, all those years ago.
