Thank you for coming back to the blog. I appreciate all of you who have reached out to check up on me. Everything is fine and this short blog post is to let you know why I disappeared so abruptly.
I hope that you and your families have been safe through the Pandemic
As some of you know, I am a reserve Marine Corps Officer. In May of 2020, I was called back to active duty and I have been complying with my military obligation since that time. The obligation extends through September 2021 and will more than likely be extended through September of 2022. Typically, getting called back to active duty is a several-month-long process, at least that had been my experience. That was not the case in 2020, the entire process took less than 3 weeks.
The good news is it has been an amazing opportunity for me. I very much love being a Marine and doing my part – what Marine doesn’t?! This opportunity does mark the end of my career. I should satisfy the requirements for retirement by the end of 2022 and will be submitting my paperwork in early 2022. Additionally, I remained at home in the greater DC area. So, my family remained intact. Which leads to another major development in 2020…
The arrival of my second son!
So, as you can see a lot happened last year. Through it all, I kept trading. Nothing can curb the Enduring Resolve! Unfortunately, this blog and the podcast had to be suspended as I weathered the changes.
The Way Ahead
I have been able to experience what it’s like to trade while keeping a job. The blog and podcast will delve deeper into my experience and will share how you can do it too. Also, I’m still working on getting funded. I came very close last year but stopped after the birth of my son. Trading my own account, trading to be evaluated for a funded account, keeping a job, and the new addition to the family was more than I could handle.
Hindsight being 20/20, I should have maintained my evaluation accounts but more on that in a future post.
I have been writing and creating content and am preparing for a large re-launch of this blog, the podcast, and the YouTube channel before the end of the year. I promise that it will be well worth the wait.
A lot of really exciting developments have happened in my trading over the last several months. I can’t wait to share them with you!
