different than the average 9-5 working person’s. We don’t have to “go to work.” Yet we’re not retired or on vacation either. We’re working every day to generate income. Trading for a living takes discipline, focus, skill, continuing education, and a commitment to staying up-to-date with current market news and events. We cover all of that here in the form of stock trading lessons, a basic trading course for subscribers, global market updates, and the application of various trading strategies and techniques.

We’re not a traditional group of traders. We’re wanderers. We know just how overwhelming it is to comprehend the logistics surrounding a digital nomad’s life. The transition from a 9-5 life to that of a financially independent wanderer is a big one. So even if you’re not ready to pull the plug quite yet, we’re here for you when you are. Plus, if you’re like us (Pat & Lorin), you’ll want to read every resource you can about the digital nomad, wandering life long before you are ready to do it yourself. That’s what this section is all about.
