I have had my fair share of haters and trolls over the years. They never get nicer and it just keeps getting funnier. The latest one is from one particular person that keeps adding a new account each time I block him. He must be really bored with his life.
I promise this will be the last time I blog about the haters and trolls because they shouldn't be worth a minute of my time. I have been on Twitter for 5 years almost and these trolls seems to be coming out of weird places.
The most recent quip I got was the fact that if I am making thousands upon thousands of dollars in profit a day, why do I sell classes. First of all,I co-founded Equity Sense. It does not mean I am an instructor. I no longer teach. The company has traders willing to teach students who are willing to learn. It is the same as the people over at SMB Capital with their prop firm and educational unit.
I am also no Tim Sykes where that guy is just pure making money off of students and nothing else. More importantly, everybody at Equity Sense makes money from trading with their own money first and then supporting our clients second. We do not get students every single day and just the same, it is better that way. It takes 2-3 months to really get a student ready to face the evil world of trading.
I am not sure where this drive from trolls come from in trying to dismiss every market service out there as a total fraud. Perhaps it is a function of their insecurities in life. Perhaps it is because these trolls are so miserable that they have to spread hate and animosity to others while hiding under the anonymity promised by the internet.
The truth is, we have plenty of students and clients. These individuals are on Twitter as well and converse with us every day. Should people need to know who we are and whether or not what we do is legit, one can only tweet at these clients to ask them the question.
But at the end of the day, 100% of my daily and monthly income come from my own daytrades with my own money. As an equal partner at the firm I get my royalties at the end of the year. If I were to solely rely on classes and newsletter fees to get by, I can honestly tell you I would be back to my day job. I cannot stand the lack of stability in subscription numbers as clients can cancel on you at any month.
I for one cannot stop the onslaught of these haters and slanderers. I do hope that one day the law catches up to the internet's appeal for verbal attacks against others. Because when that day comes, I will come at these haters with the full force of the law and I promise you, I can afford all of my 10 lawyers. However, for now, whether people believe it or not, I am the one who goes home each day with more than what I started with each day from trading.
You should only impress no one else but yourself. Because in the end, you are the master of your own reality and no one else.
Traders from Equity Sense will be writing on this blog on positions and other market-related things.
