… well… following my massive heart attack and the request of many friends who have asked me to share more of my various “lives” BEFORE little me becoming a photographer, I thought of sharing this with you today 🙂
This is a little memory from my “life” BEFORE choosing to indeed become a photographer, as I did a few years ago, suddenly out of nowhere choosing to do so 🙂 why not right? 😉
So, back then, at the time of this TV Interview on BLOOMBERG, I was totally passionate about… Day Trading!
I had developed a very unique approach to it and a very VERY unique style of Day Trading, nothing at all with what the traditional hyper stressed hyper aggressive hyper greed driven “day traders” were doing back then… No for me it was going to be very serene and calm Day Trading… while also being extremely efficient and accurate… and it was going to become my life transition into an amazing lifestyle, with my days spent enjoying lotssss of free time with both of my beautiful children… weekly fly fishing trips for trout in the mountains… lotssss of vacation in the Caribbean… 2 gorgeous black Porsche… and many other “toys” 😉 and overall an amazing amount of free time and freedom combined with amazing financial independence… or even more accurately, financial abundance… which I was immensely grateful for.
I loved deeply that great life and amazing way to make a living for very many years… also giving Seminars to all those from all over the world who wanted to learn my unique style of Day Trading and have a chance to enjoy the same lifestyle… also having the Day Trading Course that I wrote sold in over 72 countries… lots of media appearances on ABC, CBS, Bloomberg etc… lots of newspapers and magazine covers and financial columns that I would write for their readers… and then, I suddenly lost the passion for it!… and so, and as I have always done in my life every time that I lost the passion for something (which happened a dozen times at least and as there was many other “adventures” before the Day Trading one! 🙂 … I dumped it all!… never for an instant worrying about losing all those sources of money and “success”… and I suddenly shifted all into deciding to become… a photographer! 🙂 … all despite not knowing a single thing about photography… and not even owning a camera for most of my life! lol
So I decided to share with you today this little “down memory lane” video just in case that it might amuse you some to see me as the little nerdy 😉 day trading guru who I was back then… all enjoying such a happy life back then… while also enjoying spiritually the very same “happy” life today, all despite my “financial means” being reduced probably 20 folds or so!… but my heart and soul being totally at peace of living my life just as I should… from always solely following the passions of my mind and soul… and always wishing the very same for both of my amazing children for you can never be “wrong” in doing so 🙂 and wishing the very same for your own journey… 🙂
With much much love to YOU ! May your entire life’s journey also be paved solely by journeys of great passion… and in case it is not the case today for you… well… tomorrow might very well be the very first day of your whole new life!!! 🙂
ps: in case you are interested in Day Trading this is my website of back then… which I never updated or done anything new with, but which still does exist… back then it was all html ! lol and, as a proper nerd ;), I designed the entire website myself in html… over 600= pages!
a few sleepless nights 😉 http://www.pmtraders.com/
ps2: please forgive the crappy video quality and lines scans as this video was initially in SECAM and I simply recorder its playing on a TV screen back then…
