Guest Blog Post Opportunity – Your Trading Story

What's Your Trading Story?

What’s Your Trading Story?

A Call for Your Trading Story – to be featured on the Trading Story blog.

One of the privileges I’ve had since starting Trading Story podcast has been interacting with all the traders. I’ve enjoyed talking with veteran traders. Those traders who’ve been in the markets for 20, 30, and almost 60 years. Those traders have a ton to offer newer traders like me and it’s given all of us the opportunity to glean from their experience.

Inspiring Stories from Newer Traders

But I’ve also really enjoyed hearing from newer successful traders.

I loved hearing from Hunt Holladay, a newly-minted full-time forex trader (hear Hunt’s story on Episode 27). I’ve since had the opportunity to meet Hunt in-person and he’s just as genuine as he was on the podcast. But it’s also been great hearing from other newer successful traders. It’s been a privilege to interact with you guys on Twitter or email.

Like me, I think other traders could benefit from more inspiring trading stories from newer, consistently profitable traders. Stories from the not-yet-famous traders. Stories from those who are slogging it out in the proverbial trading trenches. Those traders who haven’t built a trading education platform, but have also found some success. Traders who came from nothing, but who’ve built something through trading.

A Call To Hear Your Trading Story

I want to hear more of those stories.

So in Episode 40, I asked for help.

I asked all of you guys about your trading story. Sure I want to hear from the traders who contribute to CNBC or Bloomberg and write best-selling books. I want to continue to feature prominent traders to help us all become consistently profitable traders. I think they serve a tremendous need for newer traders.

But I also want to hear from you.

If you’ve become a consistently profitable trader, even if it’s only for 6-12 months, I want to know how you did it. What brought you from not even knowing about trading to becoming consistently profitable? What were your struggles and how did you overcome them? And what’s been your experience so far?

Thankfully, we have a few brave souls who answered the call on Episode 40.

At the time of this blog post, we have two stories from newer, consistently profitable traders. And one other should be sent this week. The first of those posts should be live in the next few days. My goal is to publish these stories on the blog once per week, so long as you guys continue to submit them.

Send Them In

If you have a trading story you’d like to send, please forward it to brandon (at) or use our friendly contact form.

And without further ado, welcome to the Trading Story blog.
