How To: Exponentially GROW Your Trading Business! (More Freedom)
In this episode 169 of the Desire to Trade Podcast, I have the chance to sit down again with full-time professional trader Michael Toma to discuss how you can grow your trading business.
Michael has inspired me and helped me a lot in the past!
He had been in the podcast a few weeks ago and many times before, and every time I speak with him I learn something new which I want to share with you.
After these previous episodes with Michael, it was time to answer your questions so we went on YouTube Live asking for what you wanted to learn more precisely about risk management.
We answer those in this interview and discuss how to grow your trading business!
