Welcome to this episode of The Trading Lifestyle Podcast. In this episode, I sat down with Colin Jessup and found out exactly how he went from working in a warehouse to trading Forex for a living.
But that’s not all, he has also become a trading mentor and will be opening his own fund soon. We talked about many different topics, but what I found the most interesting was his take on how to transition from a day job to actually trading for a living.
In the interview, he outlines what he believes is the amount of money that the average person will need to be making trading to even consider making quitting their job. He also shares how he did it and when he knew it was the right time to make the leap.
He now trades from his lakeside home in Canada and loves the fact that he his his own boss. This is also an exciting time for him because it is getting ready to open his own fund and he talks about how that is going and why he decided to do it.
What I liked the most about talking with Colin was his down-to-earth personality and practical outlook on trading. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it.
