It's very flattering that the person in this email has so much trust in me; however, in the long run of the market, this strategy is simply not viable. On top of the strategy they're using, there are several other red flags that need to be addressed that go a long way in showing how the voices in our human psychology can cause us to make very bad decisions that cause us to lose money.

Whenever I have traveled to many meet-and-greets around the country to hang out with members of my private trading community, and each time I do, I've taken many pictures and then type up a blog documenting my experience. This brought up an idea to maybe start doing a "vlog". If pictures and words are popular, maybe a video experience might be that much better?

When you start to introduce concepts that seem obvious, such as "failure", it takes the trickiness to all new levels. The good news is, there is a solution to this tricky part of the markets, but the first step in implementing a solution is understanding that a problem exists in the first place.
