In this one for the ages, your host Rob Booker catches up with The Coach Scott Welsh to talk about going “all in” to trade for a living. Recently Scott sent Rob an e-mail about his surprising journey into peak-performance tennis coaching and used that story to parallel his thoughts about making the leap to trading for a living.

Rob talks about the benefits of inviting abundance into your life by consuming positive material. He also suggests that many traders are delusional about their fearfulness and the obstacles that stand in their way of success. Scott talks more specifically about the mindset that enables a person to commit to going all in, even in the face of discouraging circumstances or setbacks. All of this and so much more awaits you in Episode 302 of The Traders Podcast. Thanks for listening.
