We reached out to Storm after seeing her trading journey on instagram and wanted to find out more about her journey in Forex trading. Storm Bryant in 22 years old and a full time mom, wife, & trader/entrepreneur. Check out this interview below :
TCS: How did you get into forex trading?
Storm: I got into Forex whilst doing network marketing around the age of 16, making around $5k monthly. At the time I had a huge team, had begun traveling all over to be at the events, hosting my own events, coaching and more. Let me say that I was EXHAUSTED. I didn’t want to teach other people personality skills, or sell something that wasn’t even mine any longer. I
was sitting in my kitchen one day, and I realized that the wealthiest people I’d seen were either traders of some sort, or into real estate. I frantically began typing on Google ” How to get into trading “; of course…. Forex came up, I had never heard of it, the only trading I knew
of was stocks. Like most people. I did tons of research, and I then sought after my first mentor.
TCS: What is the difference between forex and other trading markets?
Storm: Forex VS all other markets; in my opinion lol. Forex stands for Foreign-Exchange, so essentially when you’re trading Forex, you’re betting on one currencies value, in reference to another currencies value. You’re looking at a chart, and when you think it’s going to go up, you buy. When you think it’s going to go down, you sell. Whereas with stock trading, you’re ONLY investing into a corp, or a company and riding the wave of the companies growth/recognition. Forex is a minute by minute market; meaning that you can trade 24/7 on your phone, computer, anywhere. You can get into a trade for 3 minutes, and be done for the day if you’d like. It’s short term, and long term; whereas again, with stocks you’re investing ALOT of money, and waiting for quite some time to cash out. Forex requires around $10 or so in an account to start trading, and if you build your skill set up ( which is what I teach now ), you can flip $10 to $100 in some hours. It’s low capital, HIGH reward market, IF that skill set is there.
TCS: What inspires you as a trader?
Storm: The money at first. For a very long time, I prided myself on being this 19 year old with 2 custom BMW’s, dope condo in the city, traveling, all the ” stuff ” I could think of…. Suddenly, I became a MOM; which shifted my paradigm 100%. I am no longer taking as much pride in the “things”, rather than the ability that I have to spend EVERY waking moment with my family. My inspiration is knowing that daily I can wake up and create my own reality, daily. I can learn whatever I want to learn, work on my body the way I want to, rest when I want to, give my time how I want to, create new businesses, and passions. TIME FREEDOM is the truest inspiration, because it’s given me opportunity to create, give back, and become more of who I feel God wants me to be.
TCS: How has your thoughts about money changed since trading?
Storm: My relationship with money is no longer toxic. I see money as a TOOL, a resource, never the source.
TCS: What does a day in the life look like?
Storm: I trade for investors, myself, and my educational company. Trading only lasts around 30 minutes to an hour, though. Many people think of traders sitting in front of their computer with a cup of coffee… STRESSED lol. Not me whatsoever, most times I’m finished by 10 a.m. or so. I live in Central America, so I’m all about my health. I’m usually up at 6 a.m. , hitting the gym, meditating, reading, and then cooking breakfast with my boys. I have a few other businesses that I run, so I try to keep my work blocks between 11AM-1PM, and be finished working entirely by 3PM. I’m usually hitting the beach/pool, or doing something outdoorsy by that point. The phase of life that I am in, is would be working hard, but ENJOYING as much as I can. Life is short, so I’m about creating a simplistic, beautiful day to day.
TCS: Where do you see yourself impacting the industry?
Storm: To be honest, I don’t care to do anything insane within trading. The biggest investor account that I’ve closed recently was a $500,000 deal. Managing that much money has been TRULY exciting for me, and given me a lot of opportunity. Overall, I don’t consider myself just a trader. I’m passionate about the quest of life, love, and being an entrepreneur . I want to eventually begin interviewing, and sitting at the feet of people who inspire me. I spend my days listening to podcasts, watching Oprah reruns, and reading books that elevate my mind; I see myself creating a platform to do the same for millennials.
TCS: Can people learn from you? If so how?
Storm: OF COURSE people can learn from me. Visit my website is Genblackfx.com.
