How I Went From Bum To Boss

I guess this is just a little story of how I managed to turn my life around and getting back on the path to reaching my goals. I was in my mid-twenties and I was stuck in some dead-end job that I didn’t like, you know the kind. I had no visions or goals or prospects. I was waking up every morning and heading off to a job to make some pen pusher richer, whilst I struggled to make ends meet. It’s like I was living a real life version of Groundhog Day, doing the same thing day in, day out.

It didn’t help that I was always seeing pictures of successful people in the media, it always made me feel incredibly jealous and often a feeling of resentment towards them, because if they can be successful, then why can’t I?

I’d decided that I’d had enough of being just another sheep in the herd, I wanted to do something with my life instead of merely surviving.

At first I was suckered into this marketing ploys where you see images of flashy cars and fancy houses, and nice watches. I actually signed up to attend a free lecture to see if it could miraculously turn my life around. Do you know the price for ‘turning my life round’, they wanted an extortionate amount of money (which I didn’t have) in which they’d show me how to make all the money I could ever want. Needless I got out of there as soon as I could before they pressured me.

So I was back to square one again. I was getting restless because time was passing but my life wasn’t improving. I went through a period of 6 months where I’d think I’d stumbled upon the real deal, and that this time things will start to pick up, but each time I was let down because I wasn’t willing to pay these ‘gurus’ who’d I’d never heard of.

I was almost ready to give up on believing that I could actually achieve anything when I saw an advert on how to make money online, so naturally I clicked on it and watched and at first I was quite confused and didn’t understand. But as the video went on and I actually took an interest in what was being said, I began to get a positive feeling that I may have actually found what I was looking for.

I was introduced to the world of Binary Options and at first I had no idea what it was or what potential lay ahead for me.


Fast forward about two weeks, I had completely immersed myself in the world of binary options trading. I’d even downloaded IQ Option which is a popular trading platform that you can use on your phone or tablet, and made a free $10,000 demo account.

Needless to say I didn’t do very well, because overall I didn’t really know when to enter into a trade. Id go through a period of winning and then I’d fall off the cliff and lose more than what I won in the first place. This went on for a while and I was beginning to think that I was in over my head.

That’s when I heard about Signal Services which is where you receive an alert in the form of a text message or an email. The alert gives you specific information on what to do. Such as: what currency pair to trade, what your entry should be, what time frame, and your profit target.

When I joined Binary Options Trading Signals it had drastically improved my performance, and in turn I went from having $10,000 in a demo account to $15,000 in 3 months.

After I’d saved up enough money I went and funded a real account with real money, and I’m gonna honest, I was a little nervous but I received an alert as expected and my first trade was a winner. I start off with £500 in my real account, and that was in May 2014. Now it’s later 2017 and I have multiplied my original £500 by 10 (do the math).

Not only was I making a lot more money in spare time, but I was slowly becoming more wealthy than my friends and family. I found that I could afford to buy the things that I always wanted. There was even a point where one of my friends asked to borrow money from ME! I couldn’t believe it.

I’m not as active with binary options as I used to, I’ve since moved on to bigger things. However it wouldn’t be possible, if I hadn’t clicked on that advert back in 2014.
