In Episode 156, your host Rob Booker talks with Jared Johnson, the CEO, founder and president of Day Traders FX.com to respond to some listener feedback that we received from Chris about The Traders Podcast, Episode 44: Money Never Sleeps. During that old episode, Rob talks about how difficult it is to be the best at something, so he revisits this topic. Rob asks Jared if, as a successful trader, he gets to spend more time with his family and less time worrying about money. Rob and Jared discuss the balance between trying to be a successful trader at home while also navigating the demands of family life. Rob describes the oxymoronic lifestyle of being “a professional” from home. And Rob and Jared talk about the price and the nature of accomplishment, whereby one can choose to be mediocre at many things or one can streamline one’s focus and try to become the very best at a few things. Tune in to this fun and feisty episode of The Traders Podcast.
