Well we have a solution......to the daytrading workshop

I have gotten several posts on the blog and a bunch of email saying mainly that if people wanted to come...well they should be able to. They personally would be willing to give being up at the house the whole time, so those who wanted to come could. There were a few jokes thrown in there, but I was amazed at the response.

At the same time, I have had several folks outside the USA ask if it was going to be recorded and if it would be available. Some just can't afford to come to the workshop, at this point, in the their trading career. Even folks here in the USA want to come but some can't afford it, for a number of reasons. Those of you who actually know me, know that I will go further then anyone to help someone. I believe in the idea of leaving the 99 sheep to go and find the one that is lost. In Fact, if you are a believer, then you know that is what you are expected to do.

Now I don't want anyone to get the idea that I am a Saint, a goodie two shoes or trying to blow my own horn, it's just who I am. I don't walk the same path that others do, never have and most likely never will. People have always had issues with this ever since I showed up at the first grade, because I ask questions, I keep asking questions until I understand completely. Questions make people uncomfortable at times....and that is why, I believe, they have issues with me. Ken Wood had the same problems because I asked questions, questions about the cash at the door, questions about give backs, questions about not seeing donations made to Make-a-Wish and so on.

It's so important to me that when you reach out to me, I have to try and help, this doesn't mean that I have the holy grail, nor does this mean that after the workshop you will be making piles of money either. I have gotten emails and letters from folks that I have tried to help saying it has made a difference, some small and some big. There are the others that I never hear from again, and I understand that is part of it....

But for those who can open their minds, even for a few days, listen to every word instead of playing on their laptops, that they take all the information and then go thru it one step at a time, there will be something that could turn the ship around.
Ruth 3:13 is an important verse to me.....why are you reading this blog at this point in time in your trading career....in your stage of life? Do you believe it's an accident or fate?

The workshop is full, and that is a fact, but there are people who are reaching out and asking to come, their stories make me think about the times in my life that I reached out for help and no one was there. There was no one to answer my call for help, oh I am not looking for pity either, because a closed door is only the opportunity to look for a better door, a bigger door and once you believe in yourself and also a believer and that door opens then who would be able to close it.....NOBODY!!! And that makes people uncomfortable around me also, because they know, they can feel the difference and they react accordingly.

So for those who can't make it, for whatever reason, like taking care of their parents with health issues, or the cost of flying from over the pond, etc., I understand and want to reach out and help you........

The cost of the workshop is what you believe in your heart you can give, and during the workshop the three local charities come and speak about the work they do here in the Smokey Mountains. Then the attendees have the opportunity to write them a check, to one charity or between two or to all three. I don't even know how much you give, WHY? Well, it not about me, it about you giving from the heart and that means it's between you and your God.

I will be setting up a way to have the entire workshop online, from early Saturday morning thru the dinner that evening, all day Sunday and the entire live trading on Monday. But, in order for you to join the workshop over the internet, you will have to make a $250.00 donation to one of the charities, DIRECTLY!!!

I will post the website links and local address, phone numbers and contact person at each charity so you can make a donation. Once this is donation is paid, they will send me an email and I will forward to you, the place to go and the password. A manual will also be sent to you that we will be using at the workshop. This way we can stay at the house, which is a great place to spend 3 days, and also allow everyone to join in.......

Let me know your thoughts.....

Would you think about recording the web component and selling it on DVD (or donation to charity etc)? I'd be really interested in it as I love your blog etc, but I can't make it even on the net for that long. Please ponder this.

Sounds great! Count me in. As soon as I have the charity info, I will send the check.

njandrew said...

Dennis, is there any way you can record it and people pay the same $250 for it? I can't make Saturday and would like to be able to catch the whole seminar.

This is great. Dennis! I have been in your workshop last year and would really like to attend this year as well. It really helped. Please let me know how to send the donations. Thanks again!

Hope a helping of ribs and slaw comes with the manuel. They were great last time. Thanks for putting it on the web for us that could not make it.

What would be really cool Dennis for people like me, who would like to watch but can't due to timezone differences, would be the ability to download the workshop at a later time for a donation.

WOW, it will take all I can come up with to just show it live, without thinking about how to archive 3 days worth of snore making material.....the best part of the workshop is actually being live and the intra action between everyone.....

I would just buy LBR work, Larry Williams work, Robert Krausz work and CB's book on Fib work.

Read them all when you can, study the daylights out of them, put in 11 years of screen time, print charts, draw all over them, keep a log, study money management from Van Tharp when you can...and before long you will be up to speed.

Not to sound cheap or anything, but since I don't have a website or anything other then this little blog, how would you store all that stuff.........

I need a dish of banana puddin just thinking about it....:)

Sport said...

Done with the banana puddin, the workshop will be recorded and available of 40 days to everyone that either attended in person or over the net......
