Episode 34: Peak-Performance Athletics and Trading for a Living From Home

by robbooker on April 4, 2012


Here is the fourth installment with our crackerjack panel of Scott Welsh, Rob Wilson, Jennifer Thornburg and Rob Booker. Episode 34 features story time with Scott Welsh — professional trader and pro tennis coach — who tells us about Matt, a 17-year-old tennis prospect with tremendous potential. Our team uses this story to discuss what kind of prospects a trader would have to possess to potentially trade from home for a living; the disconnect between doing well in practice and how we perform when it actually counts; whether demo trading is a waste of time; the benefits of feeling some pressure; and how desire, form and discipline play into a trader’s success. Meanwhile, Commander Rob Wilson still lives in 1972 Newport, Rhode Island, where he still wears short shorts. You get to hear about that, too.

I have been listening to all of the old podcasts, and I would have to agree that this was one of the very best. The team is spot on with the analogy to athletics. Excellent!
