Who I trade with is an important part of my success.Beth Salamanca —
Who I trade with is an important part of my success. My mentor recommended that participate in a trading community like Tackle Trading, and have a trading partner.
I immediately got a trading partner. Enter my long-time friend and multi-millionaire, JPL. She has “old money” and is very conservative. She is really fantastic on subjects like long stock and life experience but has no options trading experience to speak of. Then out of the blue, someone from our Tackle Trader community contacted me and asked me to be her trading partner. That someone was Wendy. What a gift! We kibitz, review trades, discuss strategies, and compare notes on what we hear on Tackle Trading. We also talk real estate. I’m so lucky. Wendy is bright, enthusiastic, and much smarter than me. I receive an incredible benefit from having a Tackle Trading Partner. Here’s Wendy looking good. You may see here at Tackle events. Thank you, Wendy!
A month or two ago I got a nice email from Emily Muiruri. Many of you know Emily is the co-sponsor of the Women In Trading (WIT) online group. She said the WIT group was going to start Mastermind groups and would I participate. I told Emily I’d be thrilled. Three weeks ago we had our first WIT mastermind group. Fifty women from all over the world participated. Five women Tackle Traders appeared on a video panel to share their stories. It was so great to see their faces and hear their experiences. Wendy, my training partner, was there too. The simple fact that somebody I knew was participating made so much more fun. We were also introduced to the “Godmother of Trading,” Silvia Cooke. More on that to follow.
Last week, Tim Justice texted me and said his brother, Matt, was going to be in Philadelphia teaching a Basic Trading class and could I meet him there. Told Tim I’d try and that I was in Connecticut tending to my 87-year old dad who recently had strokes. Fortunately, the planets aligned so I could get to the Philadelphia event.
I arrived in time for the last two hours of the class. I was met at the door by someone who recognized me from the Elite Legacy Hall of Fame video. He called me by name and showed me where the class was. This was Marques Johnson. He brought me into the classroom where Matt was teaching. Matt told me to come right up front, gave me a big hug, and asked me to share my trading experience. It was like old home week. What a warm reception! Then, I got to hear Matt teach. Though I’ve heard him many times before on Tackle events, it was great to hear him in person. I got to hear some Justice family stories. Matt told me how their Grandmother
Then guess who I met? Silvia Cooke, the “Godmother of Trading!” Wow!! There she was in real life. We chatted and got to know each other. I got a massive dose of motivation. She was so knowledgeable! Also, wise beyond her years, upbeat, and fun. What a nice coincidence, after hearing about her on the WIT mastermind. She told me her amazing story of having traded for 25 years while commuting from Seattle to Legacy classes, from the classes to tend to her aging mom in Gettysburg, and all this while raising a family. She shared what trades were working (check out Tackle’s Dirty Sexy Money), and that she put her son through college by trading while she had downtime in the classroom. Absolutely incredible.
I also met Jeff Schiding from Tennessee. He is an Elite Legacy Coach. Jeff introduced me to some of the students, who picked my brain. I really appreciated getting a chance to share my learnings with students. One student I met was Varnel N. Varnel is a podiatrist in the Philadelphia area. He had to work two of the three days of the class so missed quite a bit. We talked about how we could make up that time, using the Tackle Trading learning tools. Tackle has an amazing library of courses and social media resources. I hope we’ll see Varnel in the classes, chats, and other events Tackle.
Looking forward expanding my trading network, as we “learn while we earn” at Tackle Trading and WIT!
