Antonia’s Forex Funded Revenge
Written by: PaxForex analytics dept - Friday, 28 September 2018 0 comments
Alright, I totally get it. There are plenty of bad bosses around. When I took on part-time jobs to put myself through college, I even accepted that. I was hired for my looks and objectified by some bosses, but I needed those jobs as I was working towards my degree. I studied tourism as my youthful mind at that time envisioned a great career with plenty of travelling opportunities to see the world. After I realized that I may have been dreaming a bit too much, it was too late to change direction without losing three years of my life so I stuck with it.
I was happy that I landed a job the summer after my graduation, in a small firm in my home town of Milan. Everything was fine when I started. We had a total of four employees, three females and one male and we all got along pretty well. The starting salary was great and my boss was very good, treated us all with respect and worked in the trenches with us. I was very relieved that it was a totally different working environment than my college jobs I had. It all was great until my boss fell ill and had to pass the reigns to his son. He was the exact opposite of his dad and the environment changed.
My new boss didn’t only lack the knowledge on how to run a business in general, he was clueless about the tourism industry and had no people skills. After a few weeks I understood that I better search for something else in order to keep my life going, I needed a back-up plan for when the situation at my job got to the point that I had to quit before losing my mind. I wanted something I can do on the side for starters, without losing my current job. After a few days I settled on forex trading because the markets are open 24/5 which allowed me to work it into my schedule.
I spend quite a lot of my free time studying it, but realized that this will take years to master. I needed something a bit faster. I decided to use an EA, which can trade the forex market based on a strategy without me being present. One was recommended to me by a friend who used it for over one year with good results. I purchased it and deployed it in my PaxForex MT4 trading platform. I picked PaxForex because my friend used it and was very pleased. I have been
trading there now for almost seven years and am very happy to have a forex broker who has my best interests at heart. It allows me to sleep easy and never worry.
Since I have studied tourism and have marketing background, I also signed up as an affiliate in order to broaden my total income. The start was very slow, but in my third year I made as much money from forex as I did from my job. This was a great coincident as it was also the time I could not stand the hostile work environment anymore and had to quit after my boss suggested he would increase my salary if I was extra ‘friendly’ to him. That was the end of the line for me, I quit the same day without fear as I had my forex income steady and growing.
I was extremely sad to see the small company where I started my career being ruined by an ignorant boss. I felt like I had to act and safe the company for the sake of the good reputation it used to have under the old boss. As my revenues from forex grew, I was looking for ways to step in and step up. The small building which where the firm was located was up for sale by the owner who needed to come to cash quick due to an emergency. I felt like this as a sign and scheduled a meeting. After some negotiating, we agreed on a price and a few weeks later I became the new owner of a small building and had a plan.
First, I moved into the top floor of the three story building which freed up capital. Then I paid for some remodeling of the second floor in order to turn it into a shared office space for young entrepreneur and start-up firms as office space was high demand. The last thing I did was increase the rent for the firm which shocked my old boss. I wanted him out of the building and as soon as I was able to evict him, I moved. Knowing he had little interest in the firm he inherited from his late father, I offered to buy him out less than twelve months later. This would have never been possible without forex and this is my thanks to forex trading and PaxForex. I can only recommend others to enjoy the benefits of it!
