A Note from Tom: Before you dive into today’s issue about retirement, I highly suggest you see my latest Masterclass. In it, I reveal the truth you need to know about your current retirement plan – and the one thing that could cost you BIG TIME if you don’t take action now… See it here.
The word “retirement” brings a few ideal images to mind. Move south. Spend your days reading on the beach, napping by the pool, or sipping a gin and tonic while the sun sets…
But then reality sets in, and it shatters that dream like a cinderblock through a window.
Now, I’m not trying to scare you when I tell you this. The truth is, the majority of the country doesn’t have enough money saved to retire at all. And those who are retiring aren’t living that free and peaceful lifestyle. Instead, most are forced to settle for living on less.
But it doesn’t have to be that way for you. I’m here to tell you that the retirement of your dreams is within your reach. All you need is a computer.
Here’s exactly how to save enough money for a stress-free retirement…
How to Trade Your Way to More Money Than You Ever Knew You Needed
Back in February, I told you about an article whose headline was nothing short of terrifying…
“Do you have enough retirement income to last 23 years?”
Spoiler alert – for most Americans, the answer is no. The article suggested that people start working longer, spending less, and taking out a reverse mortgage to solve the problem.
Sure, those solutions could help. But there’s a way to build your nest egg that’s much better than any of those options…
I know, I know. At this point, you probably knew that was coming from me. But clichés become clichés for a reason… because they’re true.
I’ve been trading and teaching others how to trade for decades now, and I know that it produces a substantial income if done right. There is really no limit to the amount of money you can generate with trading.
I quit a corporate job and created a fortune simply by trading. My market strategies have set up for an abundant retirement that will carry me and the rest of my family through the rest of our lives. Thanks to trading, I have absolutely no financial concerns for the first time.
Imagine spending the rest of your life with more money than you need. You live in abundance. You are free and live a peaceful, easy, fun-packed life…
Too good to be true? Absolutely not.
Trading done well provides exactly that lifestyle.
Now, let’s talk about the “done well” part. What does that look like?
- Trade with Systems
This is the cornerstone of my success – and more importantly, your future success. You must employ proven trading systems that have distinct entries and exits. Trading systems take all of the subjectivity and stress out of trading by producing consistent and substantial profits.
I have plenty of trading systems and even write trading publications with them for my readers! Alpha-9, the Money Calendar, Money Call, and V3 are just a few. Each produce consistent and substantial profits. (You can learn how to get access to all of my services right here.)
- Build a Plan/Vision
New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra once said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.”
Anything worth achieving is worth planning, and that’s especially true with trading. I’m talking about specifics here, like how much money you’ll make each month, how many trades you’ll do each week, and how much time you’ll spend each week on your trading.
If you want to supercharge your experience, build a vision of what your free and abundant life looks and feels like. Playing with your grandkids… traveling the world… golfing… contributing to society… going on a six-month cruise (yes, you can do that and trade on the ship) … laying on a beach in Fiji… the list goes on. You know how to do this part. But now do it knowing that you’ll have the money and freedom to make it happen. It will light you up!
- Treat Trading Like a Business
First, let me be clear! Trading isn’t a 40-hour a week business (although it could be). A successful trading business can be built on only a handful of hours a week. That said, as with any business, your success is amplified with:
Study your craft. Know your trading systems cold. Test your systems historically and on paper in real time. Only trade real money after you’ve demonstrated they work on paper. Take trading classes. Scour the internet. Continue your learning.
Every successful business employs tools. In trading, tools include trading software, a computer, and trading publications.
Successful business people and athletes alike use coaches. Get a trading coach who walks the talk, who is successful as a trader. Your coach will help you navigate all aspects of trading, including psychological – some of the hardest to overcome.
Join a trading local or online trading group. Be around other traders so that you can share and support each other. Trade together. Trading groups are also a lot of fun!
- Create a Business Entity
Create a corporate entity like an LLC and trade out of it. Turn your trading expenses like coaching, publications, and subscriptions into a tax-deductible business expense. Of course, consult an accountant or business structuring professional to set yourself up correctly.
Trading has created wealth and freedom for many people on this planet, including me. And now, you can be one of them too.
