While slaving away 40+ hours a week, I worked my butt off learning and excelling at trading the financial markets.
Eventually, I would wake up with more profit from trading and my online businesses than I would go on to make for an entire day's salary at work.
I became resentful of the mind-numbing, soul-sucking system...
I started feeling tired, drained, exhausted, unmotivated to show up to work... Why was I even showing up when I could make more money in my sleep?!
A life-defining moment occurred when my partner and I made a wild decision to retire from the 9-5 rat race and move to Australia in 2016!
After almost 3 years of learning how to trade the RIGHT way, I quit my cushy corporate Accounting job, after just having received my 3rd(!!!) raise.
All this sounds like a nice story come true, but I was seriously and obsessively honing in on my craft - Daily chart analysis, strategizing, planning, executing, trade managing, constantly learning about money, the world, and finances... I would sleep 4 hours a day, I'd be up all night studying price movements in the markets. A lot of rest was sacrificed!
So we moved to Australia and lived there for 6 months. Continued our way to Asia for another 3 months
After returning home to Toronto and immersing myself even deeper into all things crypto, blockchain, and digital currencies, we left again and lived in Hawaii for a full year.
