I am a musician and a carpenter.
The high end construction market finally dried up with the rest of the housing market and times are much different than they were a few years ago. Jobs are hard to find and when you find one, there are 25 other guys who don't carry insurance who are willing to do the job cheaper. What can I say? It was time to move on.
"What about the music?" you ask. Here's a riddle… Question: What is the difference between a musician and a bucket of chicken? Answer: The bucket of chicken can feed a family of four. ha ha A few years back I was a full time musician and toured all over the USA and Canada. After a couple of years chasing the "dream" I finally realized my dreams had changed. I was ready to be home and glad to have the time to spend with my wife and 2 kids. Best decision ever.
Searching for an answer to our financial dilemma… I stumbled on Forex. I am a full time trader by choice, not necessarily because I have great skill, I just cannot see a better opportunity out there that allows someone such potential. I have had some great trades and a lot of bad ones too. Fortunately I have been able to keep a little more than I have lost. I am dedicated to become a better trader, not just to pay the bills, but to give my kids and my wife the life I think they deserve. I bumped into this site and am enjoying all aspects of it. I can't wait to be able to help my friends someday to understand this as well. The chat forum is great, and the signals are spot on. Great group of people here.
Why would you accept failure, when success is an option?
