You may have noticed that I sometimes partner with certain personal finance publishers — such as Southbank Investment Research — to run marketing promotions. It’s a great way for me to get my message in front of the sort of self-directed investors that are likely to be interested in writing options and the FIRE Revolution investment strategy.

The publisher takes a percentage of any sales and the copywriters use their expertise to put an effective promotion together. That leaves me with plenty of time to work with my clients. A classic win-win situation.

Why am I telling you this?

Well, if there is one thing that gets a financial copy writers creative juices flowing it’s great feedback from my clients and specifically any mention of the actual amounts they have made using the strategy.

Now I’ll be honest, I don’t really like publishing this sort of thing. It’s just not very British to talk about money that way is it? But even I have been bowled over by a recent email we received from one of my clients.

Writing Options

You see Mark L. has made an astonishing £59,622 in his first six months running the strategy and writing options on big boring UK blue-chip shares.

How has he managed that? Well, it is only fair to point out that he did have a very presentable account in the first place, but he has been following the strategy exactly as I taught it to him and the other hundred or so students that have taken the training so far.

Since June 1st he has been writing options on such well-known British shares as Diageo, National Grid, EasyJet, Imperial Brands, GlaxoSmithKline and Fresnillo.

And please don’t think that Mark is some sort of trading genius. He’s not. He’s just a regular bloke like you who has put the effort in to learn this fantastic strategy. And as his email points out, he is still learning:


“….so that’s just the way it is. Sometimes you have to accept that even though you did everything correctly it can still go against you, but I’m happy with the premium I received. I started trading on 1st June and my target is £5000 per month. I follow a 12-point plan that I’ve arrived at by making all the mistakes and learning from them.

By the way, I love watching the meetings and hearing all your ups and downs. I don’t quite feel so stupid about the mistakes I’ve made when I hear others have also made them. I’m enjoying trading the strategy and I’m learning and gaining more experience all the time. The main thing for me is that I’m in control and not relying on anybody else to make or lose money for me. My account is currently £59,622 in profit so at least its going the right way whilst I’m learning.”

I love that last sentence about being in control of his own investing. After all, at the end of the day the only person who really cares about your financial future is you.

If you like the idea of starting the new year on the right financial foot then why not check out the On Demand training course that we offer. I’m not promising that you’ll be up by fifty-nine grand in six months but once you learn about writing options, I doubt very much that you’ll ever invest any other way again.
