Picking up an important part of my mentoring story....at least for me, was the day I got a call from Richard Felton my friend and commodity mentor. He was 39 years old, I was 33yrs. old at the time, he had a wife and two boys to raise. He was still in Oklahoma and I was in Texas. Richard told me he had just gotten the results from his Doctor, he'd not been feeling well for sometime, and the news was bad, he had pancreatic cancer. The news broke my heart. Richard was the one who had planted the seed in me, that of being a commodity trading and we had worked together for the last 8 years.
We lost Richard within six months. It's for the most part, the reason that I've chosen not only to have a medical foundation but also to continue on as a commodity trader and also teach a small number of serious students one-on-one, each year, how to be a successful commodity trader.
A lot has changed in the last 31 years since Richard died, but I've never lost my love of commodity trading and my desire to 'pay-it-forward' like Richard did for me by introducing, teaching and coaching those who are serious about learning how to trade the commodity markets. I understand that trading it's for everyone, but for those who seek the financial independence that commodity trading can bring and for those who really are entrepreneurs at heart this knowledge and education is invaluable. This is why I do what I do and why I'm so passionate about it. All the best, JH
