“I thought the message is paramount to the success of anyone that is trying to trade for a living. You have to have the right mindset and willingness to put the time in to learning the process. The emphasis on discipline and following the plan and tweaking the plan is a good lesson to re-visit once every six months in my opinion. Quentin connects with the crowd and has a unique delivery style that keeps you engaged. What better way to learn than from someone who has done it.”
