If you're reading this, you're probably sick of being entrenched in that check-to-check cycle.

Maybe you're aware that there aren't really that many fulfilling jobs anymore. You've looked to the path of entrepreneurship, but perhaps you don't have a ton of capital to quit your job and invest in growing your business from the ground up. You don't want to sell a product for someone else, or have to deal with a manager breathing down your neck because their boss is breathing down theirs.

It's a story I know all to well myself and the story of Mustafa Al-azam aka "Moose" of Moose Gang Trading. Trying everything from hustling real estate, to car sales, binary options, seeing people lose it all in the stock market, Moose had his intentions set on finding that freedom horse to hitch his wagon to. The drive, the work ethic was always there; now all that was needed was a platform to execute upon. That's when Moose discovered Forex, and his life was forever changed.

At this point Moose, in a few short years, has turned 10K into over 200K via trading, and has built an awesome mentorship program that is now guiding others on the same success path.

But what exactly is Forex? Can anybody do it? I'll spare you the hassle of the Google search, I asked Moose and he gave a pretty concise breakdown.

Forex is short for Foreign Exchange Market. This is fast paced market, one of the most volatile markets out there. This market has seen an exponential growth in traders being able to trade these markets, as it used to be only allowed/permitted to be traded by the hedge funds, major financial institutions, central banks, and extremely wealthy people. So the average Joe like you and I couldn't trade these amazing markets until recently. With the expanding of the internet age, online brokers were born and they give us the opportunity to trade this extremely lucrative market with a click of a button with super lighting speed to allow us to do all our required tasks with ease. This market allows you to exchange currencies for 24 hours a day 5 ½ days a week! This gives us the time to produce good returns without having to worry about the markets not being opened or closed like the Stock Market.

Forex is the largest market in the world with an estimated $5.4 trillion in traded currencies a day. Now compared to the stock market, which only brings in around $20 billion a year; with that much in difference in traded market values you can see why the Forex market is favored by most investors and keeps rapidly growing. The Forex market is an over-the-counter market or an off-exchange market, which means it's not tied to a contract base or a stock exchange like New York.


With the advent of the Internet, the barrier of entry was shifted from sole wealthy folk with at lest $200K to start with to anyone with $100 and an online connection. Yes, that is correct, you can in fact enter into a 5 Trillion Dollar a Day industry with $100 and your cell phone. Most broker sites even offer demo versions so that you can get a feel for the flow of things before you dive in with your own cash.
But before you leave this article and dive in, let me take you back to the story of our good friend Moose. Aware that no skill or great fortune comes over night, I wanted to get more into Moose's mind and the real nuts and bolts as to how he built his fortune. I wanted to get a more in-depth look into the life of a trader. According to Moose, discipline is paramount. "Trading is 90% mindset, 10% trading". And this is very apparent in the group chat that is an integral part of Moose's mentoring system. There is a constant exchange of motivational material, and material dedicated to developing what is known as the "Trader's Mindset". You have to become a stone cold master of your emotions to truly ride the wave and not spend your days in constant panic mode. "Trade with confidence" is one of the central goals of Moose Gang Trading.
Even for Moose it was rough at first, and when we was starting he had a difficult time finding much mentorship, knowledge or guidance, but persistence would lead him to discover a method with which he could repeat with a success rate of about 87%. After our conversation, I would go on to do further research on what is known as "The Elliot Wave Principle" and was delighted by my findings. A huge fan of all things Fibonacci, golden ration, pi, and sacred geometry related, I was astounded when I saw that the once overlooked discovery of Ralph Nelson Elliot, could serve as a path to financial freedom for many, as well as many other practical applications. Elliot saw that human psychology - crowd psychology in particular - flowed in a mathematical, chartable wave between optimism and pessimism. Though it has faced some skepticism from skeptics, it has been used to foretell several market crashes and rises. In Moose's case, he used it to leverage his funds, and predict the markets to constantly double his money. Moose was determined to "Master the Wave".

As his Mastery of the Wave filled his coin purse, friends in more conventional jobs began to inquire about Moose's fortunes and wanted to learn his new form of alchemic wizardry to build their own freedom. Unable to sit down with everyone and teach them one by one, but wanting to help, Moose Gang Trading was born. For a nominal fee, you receive daily winning trade signals, a full scale academy course on how to make money and master the wave for yourself, daily video updates, one on one mentorship, and access to the group chat, which is possibly the greatest asset of the membership. Everyone in the group shares common goals of improving quality of life, attaining financial freedom, and operating to their fullest potential. Moose says one of his greatest goals is to be a mentor to "that 16 year old kid that's puzzling life, and looking for a better way".

Devoting about 4 hours a day to analysis, and several more hours to reading and watching videos the promote mind state, has become a the basis Moose's daily lifestyle ensuring success in the craft. Lately he's also been super busy working to revamp the site and be able to provide even more value. While it does take some time and possible loss to learn and master the skill, this is something that you can do while leveraging funds even from your 9-5 job, and Moose's site even offers a referral program so that you can earn funds to open and bankroll your trading account. If you can take the time to learn and master the skill it can prove to be invaluable and provide a limitless supply of income (I actually feel like the guy from Limitless when I trade).

Over the past month, both Haiti and Afghanistan have been pummeled by tragic disasters that left devastation in their wake.

In Haiti, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake erupted, leading over to 2,189 deaths and counting. A few hours later, in Afghanistan, Kabul fell to the Taliban just after U.S. troops had pulled out after 20 years of war.

In many ways, these disasters are both chillingly connected to US interference. The United States invaded Haiti in 1915, ostensibly promising to restore order after a presidential assassination but really intending to preserve the route to the Panama Canal and to defend US creditors, among other reasons.

But the US forces soon realized that they were not able to control the country alone, and so formed an army of Haitian enlistees, powered by US air power and intended to quell Haitian insurrection against US controls. Then, in 1934, the US pulled out on its own, disappointed with how slow progress was going. Haiti's institutions were never really able to rebuild themselves, leaving them immensely vulnerable to natural disasters.

Something similar happened in Afghanistan, where the US sent troops and supported an insurgent Afghan army – only to pull out, abandoning the country they left in ruins, with many Afghans supporting the Taliban.

In both cases, defense contractors benefited by far the most from the conflict, making billions in profits while civilians faced fallout and devastation. While the conflicts and circumstances are extremely different and while the US is obviously not solely to blame for either crisis, it's hard not to see the US-based roots of these disasters.

Today, in Haiti and Afghanistan, civilians are facing unimaginable tragedy.

Here are charities offering support in Afghanistan:

1. The International Rescue Committee is looking to raise $10 million to deliver aid directly to Afghanistan

2. CARE is matching donations for an Afghanistan relief fund. They are providing food, shelter, and water to families in need; a donation of $89.50 covers 1 family's emergency needs for a month.

3. Women for Women International is matching donations up to 500,000 for Afghan women, who will be facing unimaginable horrors under Taliban control.


4. AfghanAid offers support for people living in remote regions of Afghanistan.

5. VitalVoices supports female leaders and changemakers and survivors of gender-based violence around the world.

Here are charities offering support in Haiti:

1. Partners in Health has been working with Haiti for a long time, and they work with the Department of Health rather than around them, which is extremely important in a charity.

2. Health Equity International helps run Saint Boniface Hospital, a hospital in Haiti close to the earthquake's epicenter.

3. SOIL is an organization based Haiti, "a local organization with a track record of supporting after natural disasters." They are distributing hygiene kits and provisions on the ground to hospitals and to victims of the earthquake.

4. Hope for Haiti has been working in emergency response in Haiti for three decades, and their team is comprised of people who live and work in Haiti. They focus on supporting children and people in need across Haiti.

Road trips can be a lot of fun — but they can also drain your wallet quickly if you aren't careful.

From high gas costs and park admission fares to lodging and the price of eating out every night, the expenses can add up quickly. But at the same time, it's very possible to do road trips cheaply and efficiently. Without the headache of worrying about how much money you're leaking, you can enjoy the open road a whole lot more. Here's how to save money on a road trip.

1. Prepare Your Budget, Route, and Packing List in Advance

If you want to save money on a road trip, be sure you're ready to go. Try to count up all your expenses before you hit the road and create a budget. It's also a good idea to plan your route in advance so you don't end up taking unnecessary, gas-guzzling detours. And finally, be sure to pack in advance so you don't find yourself having to buy tons of things you forgot along the way.

2. Book Cheap Accommodations — Or Try Camping

All those motel rooms can add up surprisingly quick, but camping is often cheap or free, and it's a great way to get intimate with the place you're visiting. You can check the Bureau of Land Management's website for free campsites. Freecampsite.com also provides great information on If you don't have a tent or don't want to camp every night, try booking cheap Airbnbs or booking hotels in advance, making sure to compare prices.

If you're planning on sleeping in your car, a few tips: WalMart allows all-night parking, as do many 24-hour gyms. (Buying a membership to Planet Fitness or something like it also gives you a great place to stop, shower, and recharge while on the road).

3. Bring Food From Home

Don't go on a road trip expecting to subsist on fast food alone. You'll wind up feeling like shit, and it'll drain your pocketbook stunningly quickly. Instead, be sure to bring food from home. Consider buying a gas stove and a coffee pot for easy on-the-go meals, and make sure you bring substantial snacks to satiate midday or late night cravings so you can avoid getting those late night Mickey D's expeditions.

Try bringing your own cooler, filling it with easy stuff for breakfast and lunch — some bread and peanut butter and jelly will go a long way. Bring your own utensils, plates, and napkins, and avoid buying bottled water by packing some big water jugs and a reusable water bottle. Alternatively, try staying at hotels or Airbnbs with kitchens so you can cook there.

4. Avoid Tolls

Apps like Google Maps and Waze point out toll locations, so be sure to avoid those to save those pennies. (If it takes you too far off route, you might have to bite the bullet and drive across that expensive bridge).

You can also save on parking fees by using sites like Parkopedia.

5. Save on Gas

Gas can get pricy incredibly fast, so be sure that you're stopping at cheap gas stations. Free apps like GasBuddy help you find the most affordable gas prices in the area. Also, try going the speed limit on the highways — anything faster will burn through your tank. Be sure that you don't wait till you arrive at touristy locations or big cities to fill up.

6. Get a National Park Pass

All those parks can get really expensive really fast. If you're planning on visiting three or more parks, it's a great idea to get an America the Beautiful National Parks Pass. For $80 you can get into every National Park for one year.
