It’s never easy to start from scratch. It takes a lot of hard work and support from the right people to reach breakout success. Jack Kellogg built a solid foundation that allowed him to do exactly that.*
In this week’s episode, hosts Kim Ann Curtin, Stephen Johnson, and Tim Bohen welcome Jack back to the podcast. Today, they get the lowdown on what it took for this incredible trader to get ahead at a young age.
Tim loves Jack’s ability to hustle. He applies focus and determination to everything he does. Even when he started out as a valet building up funds for his trading account!
Jack credits his tolerance for stress and the foundation of support he built. He breaks down how both helped him level up his trades and his life.
Listen in to find out how he designed his roadmap for success on this week’s SteadyTrade podcast!
Build a Foundation for Success
Jack started his trading career by searching for the right mentors to model. And it took him a while to find the best fit for him.
He spoke to many successful traders. Jack even followed Tim Grittani but couldn’t click with his strategies.
Then he spoke to another trader who told Jack about his unbelievable breakout success. This trader detailed how he made huge gains in the market. And it sparked inspiration for Jack. Seeing the way his mind operated gave Jack the sense that he’d find his own process soon.
Something unlocked in Jack’s mind. And he shares all the nuggets of wisdom that inspired him to create strategies that worked for him. That includes building a community of peers to share them with.
So what kept him motivated along the way? Jack shares every moment of his path to breakout success.
(*Please note that these kinds of trading results are not typical. Most traders lose money. It takes years of dedication, hard work, and discipline to learn how to trade, and individual results will vary. Trading is inherently risky. Before making any trades, remember to do your due diligence and never risk more than you can afford to lose.)
Push Your Limits
Jack saw his age as an advantage. Being young, he knew he could push his body further to meet his goals and bounce back.
He was willing to pack on the stress to reach those goals. And he did face some health challenges along the way. He even battled mono and strep throat at the same time!
You have to be ready to take what the market gives you. When the market’s hot, you have to give your all. You never know when it will end.
Jack knew this all too well. Many traders took the summer of 2019 off because it was too slow. But he stuck it out.
He put in the screen time, tracked his trades, and refined his process. When the market picked up, he was ready for it! And he continued to optimize his trades.
There were a couple of key areas he focused on to improve his trades. Tune in as he shares all the details that led to his breakout success.
Strike a Balance
You can push yourself when you need to. But you also have to be able to bounce back. Otherwise, you run the risk of burning out.
Jack’s still burning bright. And he’s learned a lot from his first leg of breakout success.
For one, he’s learned to take a day off. And he hired a personal chef to enjoy healthy meals. Plus he’s stretching his shoulders and body regularly. All sitting and no standing can make Jack a dull boy. Nobody wants that!
He’s focused on “multiple support beams” to hold up his foundation now. He’s killing it in the stock market* and thriving in life. And he’s eager to share his wisdom on “health, wealth, love, and happiness.”
Plus, he’s partnered with Kyle on an exciting new StocksToTrade feature! The new Breakouts and Breakdowns educational alert program gets into the nitty-gritty of supernova breakout patterns.
It’s where Jack and Kyle provide members with alerts, commentary, and monthly webinars. They’re dedicated to helping students get their process down pat.
