What Andrew has to share will completely disrupt the way you think about trading – and your future. And today, I want to share his story. So without further ado, here’s Andrew.
My first “real job” was an analyst at a bank… and I remember the day I got fired like it was yesterday.
It was so boring I would literally fall asleep at my desk in the middle of the day. So they decided to give my job to someone else.
My second “real job” wasn’t any better. I sat in a cubicle looking at endless spreadsheets all day for CVS-Caremark, where my boss was some corporate stuffed shirt, always in my face.
I was absolutely hating life – it got so bad I could barely sleep at night.
Not that I had much to get up for every day; my pay was peanuts, too. My salary was only $45,000 a year – around $500 a week after taxes. It was barely enough to afford a decent car, let alone an apartment in Chicago.
So I had to move back in with my parents just to make ends meet. It was so embarrassing, but what else could I do? It was right after 9/11; there was a recession on, good jobs were scarce, and I needed the money.
So I went to work every day, and did my best to stay awake. But I hated every minute of it.
