Forex Trader - Retired at 43

I went throught he same thing at my last "job."

The company needed me so I put in the over-and-above effort needed to ensure the success of the project I headed, only to be dissapointed when the promised reward and recognition never materialized.

It was ever and always "just wait a bit longer" and "be patient."

Well, it drove me to reevaluate my career path and I struck out on my own. Using a little capital to stake me and the same effort I would have put into a career change/job search I learned to trade the Forex market and haven't looked bak. So I say get while the gettin' is good!

Great analogy - it really hits home!

Great story and I think you were 100% right about Hal.

People who say "just an accident" are missing the point - it was a revealing moment that showed you a deal breaking flaw.

Most in my family are hunters and I had a BB gun when I was a kid - even at a young age, I absolutely knew that thing was not going near my eye (or anyone elses).

The idea that a grown man would do that is enough to melt your brain.
