I wanted to write to you after listening to your Monday Podcast ‘EP: 622 Whatever You Think Think the Opposite’ which I listened to on the drive in to work on Wednesday with a huge grin on my face as I found the timing uncanny as I had handed in my resignation to my workplace on the Monday that week.
The points you made on the Podcast about making the leap, health and 2018 going to be great all resonate with me.
In an exit interview with my general manager he asked if I had taken a lot of knowledge from working there, the truthful answer is that I had from the time on the commute which allowed and focused my attention to your Trend Following Podcasts. Over the past 7-8 months I have totally changed my approach to trading throwing out the fundamentals and focusing my attention to my understanding of trend following. So far this has been a really motivating and interesting learning curve, consuming books and podcasts and building a huge passion which I’ve also radiated outwards to other friends with investment interests. The results so far even over the most recent few months have given me the confidence to back myself and leave the stability and reliance on a fixed income where I was not challenged, getting unfit at my desk and hardly motivated or allowed to demonstrate any passion.
I look forward after my 4 week notice period to dedicating my time to developing my trend following knowledge, developing our more systematic approaches and focusing on better administration of prior trades.
What can I say but Thank You for changing my direction and giving me the confidence to JUMP into a fresh start for 2018, the Trend Following journey ahead is one that I am really looking forward to.
(keep up the good work)
