However, “financial freedom” means different things to different people.
For some, it may be having millions of dollars in the bank.
While others may define financial freedom as being able to do, “what you want, when you want, where you want, and with whom you want.”
Fortunately, the latter can be achieved with relatively little startup capital.
However you define success, it’s unlikely that working for the police department would be most peoples’ first choice when it comes to a path towards financial independence.
Certainly, it seemed that way to Bullseye Trades student, Shane Tyslan of Colorado. “I can’t wait to quit my job,” he freely admits.
And working long, demanding hours for a modest wage is certainly not his idea of freedom.
Like many people new to trading, Shane Tyslan’s primary motivation was his desire for financial independence. To put it another way, he couldn’t wait to be able to quit his job. As a newcomer, Shane knew that he had a great deal to learn, and joined Bullseye Trades so he could mirror just one of Jeff Bishop’s trades a week until he finds his feet.

Police Department Employee
Even people in much higher-paying professions increasingly seem to be discontented with what they do for a living.
Executive stress and burnout are not mere creations of the media. They’re real phenomena that blight the lives of hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of Americans.
Sure, they might be earning six or even seven-figure salaries. But they likely have to work crazy hours to keep their high-paying positions.
Most high-paid employees have limited opportunities to enjoy their hard-earned rewards. And they’re trying to survive on health-destroying levels of sleep and have less and less quality time with family and friends.
It’s no wonder so many people are attracted to the idea of striking out on their own.
The nagging question, of course, is how to go about it.
There’s no doubt that in the last decade or so, the internet has made it easier than ever for the average person to work for themselves.
Countless online income opportunities are now available, and more are appearing all the time.
“I wanted to trade stocks but had no experience. So I didn’t want to screw myself, which made me look to people with decades of successful experience.”
Selling products on Amazon, affiliate marketing, and blogging have enabled people from all walks of life to make money online.
The problem with many of these opportunities is they tend to become “The next big thing,” and the best new way to make a quick fortune with minimal skills, knowledge, and experience.
Whether the promoters’ claims are valid or not, to be fair, some can be perfectly viable business models.
Unfortunately, hype inevitably attracts thousands of eager newbies flooding into the market.
Because of this, competition can increase dramatically, and the barriers to entry in terms of start-up capital and the time it takes to break-even become ever more daunting.
If you hate selling, as many people do, few of these opportunities will be rewarding or enjoyable. And they rarely lead to true financial independence.
The good news is you won’t have to worry about any of these things when you start trading stocks.
Trading doesn’t require you to advertise for clients or customers. You don’t need to develop innovative and attractive products.
And you never have to worry about competition.
You can launch your trading business with just a few hundred dollars in your account, and can start earning some decent profits almost immediately.
Now, that being said, there is, of course, a learning curve.
And nobody should ever say that becoming a successful trader is a walk in the park.
“I like focusing on just one trade at a time until I become more experienced.”
It can be said with a high degree of certainty that anyone who can read and write can learn to place trades.
And that once you’ve learned to trade, you’ll possess a financially-valuable skill with the potential to provide you the financial freedom you’ve always wanted and deserve.
All that’s necessary is a fierce drive to succeed and, of course, the help of a skilled and experienced mentor.
This is something that Shane Tyslan understood right from the start, and that’s why he’s been content to take things slowly and carefully.
“I wanted to trade stocks but had no experience, says Shane, “So I didn’t want to screw myself, which made me look to people with decades of successful experience.”
In the beginning, Shane wants to shadowJeff Bishopon just one trade at a time.
Doing this will give him plenty of space to grasp the underlying principles while risking relatively small sums of money.
“Take your time,” is what he tells others. “Learn about options, even just the basics. I’m still learning, but I have help. So get some help!”
Of course, that’s sound advice for all traders. And it’s already paying off for Shane.
In fact, his very first options trade ADBE [Adobe Inc.] netted him a more-than-respectable 60% profit.
Not a life-changing sum, to be sure, but the kind of win that, if consistently repeated and compounded, can quickly lead to spectacular account growth.
“Just did my first Bullseye trade on ADBE. Profited 60%! Wooooooo!”
“I feel that financial freedom is right around the corner,” Shane now says with confidence.
And with the attitude he has displayed so far, provided he remains committed to his new craft, he has every chance of achieving the life of his dreams.
