How markets can make you your own boss
Bhushan Kanathe, a successful trader, investor and stock market mentor, is leading the life he always wanted. A CFA and FRM, he has turned his passion into a career and is cherishing being his own boss. But this wasn't as easy as it sounds.
While studying engineering in Mumbai, Bhushan got introduced to the share market by his Gujarati friends. He kept keen interest in the markets and followed news, financial articles, etc. to improve his financial acumen. He went on to get an MBA and worked as an investment banker in HSBC.
He would continue to invest on the side but soon realised that trading is a full time job. Belonging from a conservative family meant that he had to lie about quitting his job for trading by saying that he was preparing for UPSC. That time, ie. in 2016- 17, resources were costly and mentorship wasn't that easy to get. Ads were full of get rich quick schemes. He too, burnt a little money initially, how would one grow mature otherwise?
Overcoming setbacks to be a successful trader today, his top tips are:
- One should trade according to their personality and comfort zone.
- The most important is to build a right mindset and thought process.
- Patience is key.
Bhushan's concept of money is simple: It's important to make enough money in this day and age, but it shouldn't cost you your happiness. Being your own boss is a way to attain both, wealth and freedom.
Bhushan is part of #OurTribe for his love for the markets and forever learning attitude.
