“I suppose that this is a weird request…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael,

I am a member in the [country] military and have been serving for the past 12 years and I am looking to change careers in the next 5-8 years. I was wondering if you have any contacts here in [country] that are Trend Traders that could possibly be open to mentorships/coaching?

The reason why I ask is I have read your books “The Complete TurtleTrader”, “Trend Commandments” and I am currently reading “Trend Following” All have been really insightful and have given me a direction in the type of trader I want to be. I understand that there is a lot that I can learn on my own, but to be able to learn from someone with a wealth of experience and who is currently “in the business” and can give me an opportunity to learn through osmosis would be highly beneficial.

I suppose that this is a weird request and I assume that you may have received requests like this before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Not an odd request. It’s what I do. You may consider a next step.
