Episode 259: Lessons Learned From Missionary Service

Episode 259 is a rather unusual Traders Podcast, because your host Rob Booker and the producer Jason Pyles share some personal anecdotes concerning what they learned during their two years of missionary service in Italy and Tucson, Arizona, respectively. Rob says that a lot of what he knows about being a good trader comes from lessons he’s learned while knocking on people’s doors in Italy. For instance, Rob talks about how all the rejection he faced as a missionary informs his trading career. All of this and more in Episode 259 of The Traders Podcast. Join us! And thanks for listening.

Episode 40: Where and Why We Trade for a Living

Rob Booker is joined again by his guest co-host, “The Coach” Scott Welsh, podcasting from Columbus, Ohio. Scott and Rob begin this episode by talking about the importance of knowing what you want when striving to achieve a goal.

Next your trader hosts discuss whether the location you’re trading from affects your trading, and whether you can trade from anywhere in the world (and by the way, where are the greatest places in the world to trade from?). Rob and Scott also consider Las Vegas: Is Sin City the perfect place for traders? Can automated trading enable you to trade from anywhere? Rob lists his favorite trading locations, and he reveals his pick for the greatest city of all time. And if you live in a certain location — which is named in this episode — and you’d like Rob and Scott to come and trade at your home with you for a week or two, then contact us at

Also, in this episode, we introduce a new segment called “Dumb Things That Rob Does,” which pertains to today’s topic.

And finally, Rob concludes Episode 40 with a remarkable epilogue that enumerates the reasons why, exactly, we trade for a living by recounting an unforgettable story about his friend, Mickey — a trader who realized his dreams.

Please leave us a comment, telling us where you trade from and where you’d like to trade from.
