Throughout my life, I’ve undertaken various pursuits, yet one has consumed me entirely—trading. Upon leaving the US Marine Corps in 1999, I harbored a singular desire: trading. Lacking a clear path, I attempted to secure a position as a broker at a brokerage firm.
Being a broker, as it turned out, entailed making 200 daily calls, urging people to invest in a grand concept, with me as their guide. Even if successful in recruitment, I’d function as a sales representative for a prominent Wall Street entity.
Considering this was 1999, an era devoid of YouTube and with limited internet accessibility, I persisted in deciphering how to become a trader. At a networking event, I encountered a fellow Marine who led a proprietary trading firm—a revelation of the opportunity I sought.
At 26, lacking a college degree, a requisite credential, I remained tenacious and resourceful. I inquired about the most challenging aspect of running his business. His response became my guiding principle.
“So you require someone obedient, unwavering, and diligent, regardless of project intricacies?”
As a former Marine infantryman, I embodied these qualities. Without explicit articulation, he directed me to report to his office at 5 am the next morning (spoken as zero five hundred), handing me his card to commence our partnership.
Our agreement: I would execute all necessary tasks, and he would impart the intricacies of trading. Foremost, he taught me to construct a trading system, present it comprehensively, and, upon approval, trade it on a demo account.
Luck played a role, but my early research laid the foundation for success. Over 24 years, I refined the process, navigating prop firms, a hedge fund, and eventually founding my trading business.
In November 2022, I initiated the first cohort of the Trading Thunderdome, where I share and collaborate on my systematic approach to building trading systems and businesses, enabling scalability to any desired level. The objective? Cultivate a thriving, enduring trading business.
Who’s the target audience? Experienced traders seeking consistency, possessing adequate capital, acknowledging gaps in their approach, and aiming for professional growth.
Who should abstain? Novice traders, those financially unprepared, and individuals uncertain about meeting next month’s rent.
The Thunderdome isn’t a repository of knowledge bought with a lump sum. It’s a transformative space for those pursuing the next echelon, tightening their strategy, and elevating their trading to achievable heights.
