I'm not sure if this is really my own purpose or not, but there's something about it that feels right.
Now, here's my thing... I've always wanted to be a full time investor/trader. I'd like to treat stock trading as a business, and would love to do this more than any other type of business I've tried. I'm certainly not ready for this yet because I have a lot of learning to do before I would be able to.
But, how does one reconcile the desire to be a stock trader with having a life purpose that really adds value and helps other people? I want to do those things, but I'm not sure how that fits with trading the markets. For a trader to make money, someone else loses money.
