I am a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM). I gave up my career that paid me a decent salary when my eldest started primary school because I could not manage both work and home effectively at the same time. I had to leave work on-time every single day so that I could rush to the childcare centre to pick up my children. I felt that it was so unfair to my teammates. When I finally picked up my children, I had no time to spend with them as they will be rushed off to bed after dinner. I felt that was so unfair to my children.
So here I am in my fourth year as SAHM and I have no regret giving up my career. However, it is time for me to start generating income to help with the family expenses. Going back to the corporate? No, because I still want my freedom.
So I started this options trading business. Let’s not be naive in believing that options trading is easy and you don’t need to spend much time to make lots of money. I have attended only two courses but I have put in lots of time in reading, analyzing and practicing the strategies. Even though there are a lot of work to be in this business, it gives me freedom and flexibility from working in the corporate environment.
As with any new traders, I have lost thousands before. Profits are coming in now, albeit very slowly and inconsistently. I still have losses but the losses are smaller and more manageable now. So the aim now is consistency, highest probability with lowest risk. It is about the quality of the trade. When there is quality, profits will come.
