Why do successful traders sell courses?

Million Peso Question

I just landed sa isang country sa Europe. Im with my dad. Sasamahan ko siya sa business deals niya. Since naglock down ang Pinas kase all his businesses took a hit and most were put on hold so as soon as nag open na some countries sa Europe at nagkaroon chartered flights. He and his friends took a flight. It was not easy. Mga 4 times din nacancel. Ang hirap mag coordinate especially yung mismong lalapagan na country but now we are here.

My dad is a little bit old so ayaw namin mapano kaya sinamahan ko. Dating kami Bergen. I will show you a video. Parang ghost town.

We spend a night here then travel kami by car crossing borders until we reach yung place na pupuntahan namin.

By next week uuwe na kami Pinas. Rest a little bit then once pwede na lumipad to US aalis na naman kami. All of these dahil sa mga dealings ng father ko. Sobrang iba na yung mundo. Yung new normal.

Now, enough about me, let us try to answer the golden question. Bakit nagpapaseminar or nagbebenta ng course yung mga successful traders sa Pilipinas?

Yan yung mga tanong that makes a lot of them really uncomfortable.Well, my blog is for my TL Family so I will tell you yung truth.

The truth is they are not really successful. Most of them try to make themselves look successful as part of their act.

Sell Shovels

May kasabihan na kapag daw nauso yung paghuhukay ng ginto at gusto mo yumaman huwag ka raw maghukay but magbenta ka ng shovels sa naghuhukay.

Logic

This might sound funny but here is their logic behind selling courses. They were traders that lost a lot noon and taught themselves how to trade. They become successful at trading. They are so successful that they need to impart their knowledge. They are so successful that they have no choice but to sell courses.

Hehehe. I’m not sure how they come up with that one but It’s the most popular reason or answer you will get when you try to ask why they do what they do.

I'm an average trader

Me? I consider myself an average trader. I will always consider myself an average trader no matter what. It keeps my feet anchored to the ground. If you are my TL Family alam mo na na I emptied one of my trading account a week ago. I sold all my position and stayed cash.

The Truth

Here is the truth. If you really earn money from your trades hindi mo kakailanganin magpaseminar.

You need 20k? Go trade and get 20k.

You need 40k? Go trade and get 40k.

You need 300k? Go trade and get 300k.

You are a trader. That is what you do.

The problem with that is napakahirap nun especially if your system is not that good. That’s why traders choose to sell courses instead.

Sa trade kase kailangan mo ng capital plus may chance pa masunog pera mo. Sa pagpapaseminar konting kwento kwento lang. Konting describe describe ng mga terms pera na.

Traders who sell courses rely on ignorance. They tend to milk newbies sa ignorance nila. “Di mo alam ang moving averages?boom!akin na 20k mo tuturo ko sayo!”

“Di mo alam rsi?boom!akin na 50k mo tuturo ko sayo!”

I even see some traders na binebenta yung “how to open an online brokerage account”

Funny Thing

The funniest thing about selling a course is this: They sold courses to some traders few years ago as well. They started this maybe 5 or 4 years ago and out of those traders na nabentahan nila course or umattend sa seminars nila eh halos walang repeat customer or halos walang nagsasabe na naging ok trades nila.

If you ask those who attended their courses from before eh you will shake your head sa feedbacks.

That’s the main reason bakit need ng mga sellers na to new customers kaya need nila bagong traders na di pa alam yung kalakaran.

Parasites

I consider them parasites. They will suck money out sa ignorance ng mga traders. Outside TL I can’t do much but I guarantee you na if you are a TL member I will protect you from these leeches.

Walang nagbebenta ng course na allowed sa TL. If gusto mo kumita magtrade ka!

I publicly say it all the time na I don’t support them. I have zero respect for people na nagclaim na magagaling sila na traders but panay benta ng courses, seminars at subscriptions.

I would never sell a course, a seminar or will do subscriptions. Why? Kasi po trader ako. If gusto ko magkapera I will do what I do which is trade.

Minsan we joke around with TL admins. We try to imitate these “gurus” line of thinking and laugh hard. We say things like “I’m so good at trading. I win this trading cup. I win this and that. I turned 10k into 1 trillion but for some reason I need to teach you or sell you this course!”

Hahaha. We get a good laugh at it every time.

Maybe… just maybe… if they have a better system… maybe…just maybe if they trade well… they won’t be out there selling courses!

I heard a lot of them out there saying TL have basic strategies sa trading… Ang funny daw ng names ng mga strategies sa TL… Let me enlighten you about one thing…

If you are selling a course let me enlighten you about one thing… Read this very very slow..

Dahil sa TL strategies namin ay hindi namin kailangan magbenta ng subs, mentorships, seminars at courses.

Happy 51K my dear TL Family

    101% TRUE…

    kapag magaling ang trader, hindi na nya kailangan magbenta ng courses, seminars, mentorships, subscriptions, books.
    lahat naman yan ay FREE online. lalo na sa TL eh FREE lahat yan…

    kung totoo magaling na trader ka, assuming gain ka ng 5% per week, that’s 22% per month (i.e., 5% x 52 weeks divide by 12 months)… kailangan pa ba magbenta ng seminars, courses, etc??? NO WAY!!!

    hence, malamang 99.99% eh HINDI totoo magaling ang FAKE GURUS na mga yan. that’s why nagbebenta sila ng kung anu-ano…

    cheers to happy trading!

    Maraming salamat Ms. GK, kung talaga namang effective ang binebenta nilang matututunan sa mga seminars nila, bakit sinasabi pa rin nila na 1% lang nang mga Filipino ang nakakaalam at kumikita sa Stock Market, ibig sabihin ba hindi nakakapag contribute ang mga seminar nila para dumami o madagdagan ang mga Filipino na may alam sa Stock Market.

  • Joes

    Dahil sa TL strategy hindi namin kailangan magbayad ng fake ‘gurus’ para “kumita”. Dahil sa TL hindi lang aq pahkita ang matututunan namin kasama na ang disiplina.
