# Coffee with Markus Season 2 Episode 9 Making Money on the Beach

When I am traveling with my clients, I use a ten thousand dollar account for live trading. Why ten thousand dollars? Well, because that is what most people have and we want to trade for real.

This time, I’m at the beach and I was trading with my private client behind the dunes.

My client and I made \$190 based on a \$10,000 account.

That’s 1.9%. Let’s just say 2%.

Now you don’t have to make this every day. Now, you don’t have to make this every day. What if you just would make it every week? This means that over the course of a year, you would double your account.

Let me calculate that for you. There is 52 weeks in a year, multiply 52 weeks by 2% that will result to 104%. That’s how you double your money every year. Isn’t it cool? We’re not talking about maybe 2% every day. We’re talking about making 2% every week.

This morning is a great start of the week. We had probably 25 of my private students on that call, and we traded live. My account made money and that is always good!

During the afternoon, I just enjoyed the beach.  That is the life of a trader, the lifestyle the lifestyle that I chose. I do not need to sit in an office all day because I can trade whenever and wherever I want.

I hope that you are having a fantastic day too!
