I was asked if I would blog about my experiences as a New Student at 365 Forex and thought it would be helpful for those of you who were wondering what it would be like to enroll. I also think it would help my learning to put down what I am learning and feeling.
A little history first…..I was looking for a way to create additional income. I am currently a Certified tax preparer and really busy for 3 months. During the rest of the year I do business consulting with an organizational called Catapult Leadership. That contract is for 1 week a month. The rest of the month—-my time!!!!
I am very interested in the financial markets and have always been extremely passionate about what is happening with the economy and how I could use my knowledge to my advantage. I saw an ad for a company called “online trading academy” and went to a presentation. I was so excited to learn something new and make $$ doing what I love— leveraging the market to my advantage. The presentation was very professional and informative however they only really wanted to manipulate me into purchasing additional education modules. I was disillusioned and disappointed. I read some of their reviews and realized there as a large group of folks like me that were also “duped”.
I wasn’t going to give up though! I did my homework and found another online trading company 365 Forex and went to tour their facility. The experience there was profound. No high level sales manipulations, no ridiculous high-priced commitment. Their business model made sense to someone who is a business consultant. They make their money when we make money. So for only a 5000 investment for their education modules and daily online sessions. I could learn what I need to learn to supplement my income.
Signing up was the easy part. Now it is up to me to learn. At this point I have watched the modules….I have traded using the “fake account”….I have funded my real account……and I am ready to start trading. However I am stuck….I am taking this experience seriously and don’t feel I have done my job in the education process. There are still areas I don’t understand and need to learn. The folks have been there to support me but I am not “supporting me”. I want to understand what I am looking at…I don’t want to make a trade for the sake of making a trade….I don’t want to approach this experience like I am going to a “slot machine” and hoping that luck will get me through.
I have met a lot of people using this software and watching the daily sessions and they are making great money “doing this”…quite frankly I envy them. I know they know something I don’t and that bothers me. As you follow my journey to “learning this” I will do my best to provide you with a template to also “learn this”. Right now I am frustrated with myself that a “tax accountant/calculus major” – who “thought this would be easy” is finding it’s not!! I guess the old adage “if it was easy everyone would do it” holds true. My next step…..going to make a plan to “get there”….guess I should’ve done that first…..
