I live nowhere near Wall Street—my husband and I actually used to operate a gift shop in a quaint little
town called Asheville, North Carolina. Our gift store was successful, and we always envisioned it as our retirement plan… until one day,
disaster struck. A heavy storm hit our area, and our shop was completely flooded—everything lost, and we had no flood
insurance. We were in trouble.
So while I began looking for new ways to make money—a friend introduced me to options trading. Somehow, it just made sense to me, and I got really into it.
Actually, more than that… I became obsessed! I started reading books, watching financial news, taking courses…
Most surprising of all, I got really good. I was beginning to make more money trading than we had ever made in our gift store, so I decided to pursue it full time.
In 2010, I created something called the P3 System, a strategy that zeroed in on a chart pattern that pinpointed when a stock was ready to significantly pop up in value.
