- Hi everybody,
Ghous reporting...(Ghous is not like goose or ghost. I always tell ppl to replace the letter B in BOSS with G to come close enough to the actual pronunciation)
Here's a brief anecdote of my peregrination through my entire trading career thus far,
I was recommended the world of trading by an acquaintance over the internet at a time when I was busy trying to persuade ppl to buy some stupid formula that would cure their baldness or when I was trying to market an E-book I had never read myself, what's more I was into mlms, doublers, HYIPS, all kinds of ponzi schemes each of which was always waiting with sharpened knives. Not to declare online marketing as a pure waste of time or money it just wasn't for me which i realized soon after I was introduced to the world of forex trading.
I may have forgotten the name of this person who recommended forex to me but I clearly remember the phrase that has led me to type this on FF.
"I made $25 into $500 in a day. Why do you want to waste your time trying to sell a $75 e-book on which you'll hardly earn anything??"
Yes I was one of those unfortunate ppl who were lured into this simply because of the gigantic money potential.
This is where FF came in and posts like "You'll normally need a minimum of 2 to 3 years to get your feet wet" at first made me laugh at them and later made me laugh on myself when I realized how truthful they were. FF has truly been a resource that groomed me as a trader. That has made me live the dream. That has given me hope beyond all other pleasures, achievements, and failures. At the end of the day I have some great ppl among great strategies to socialize and spend time with. The forum has given me the priceless gift of knowledge, relations and a loving community.
To conclude I'd like to thank:
1) Almighty for helping me via priceless resources whenever I needed them.
2) My beloved parents who truly deserve 100 times anything good that I deserve, had it not been my family who believed in the essence of valuable education I would not have been amongst you guys today.
3) FF manager Twee and all the all the moderators
4) PPL at the James16 thread
5) THE ENTIRE FORUM! PPL ON THE GIVING END AND PPL ON THE RECEIVING END! YOU ROCK!!!
