Nick's 'Now' Page

This is what Nick Long is working on now.

This is a ‘now’ page and if you have a personal website, I recommend you make one too. I’d prefer to say the main things here rather than wasting my friends’ time with superficial social media updates.

I’m trading from home. I’ve been doing it for the last 10 years, and it’s been an incredibly hard journey. Individual traders are small fish swimming in the sea with some very big sharks, and 95% fail in their first year. No trader ever feels like they’ve truly cracked it, because the markets are always changing - which is why I love it - because it forces me to focus on my own self development. I have recently started to coach others who want to learn to trade.

I have had great personal success with investment systems I have researched over the last few years. I am building an investment website to help my friends and family use my strategies and automated tools. Eventually I’d like to teach anyone and everyone how to invest.

I am teaching yoga to a set of students I love, ranging from marathon runners & pilates teachers to stiff but enthusiastic retirees. I feel deeply honoured that many have been learning with me since 2006.

I am designing my own infrastucture. This includes everything from building the web servers that are hosting this blog, and other ideas. I’m prioritising becoming independent from the big cloud data abusers like Facebook and Google and want to help others do the same. I hope to post tips on this blog soon.

I’m trying to be a good parent to my daughter (17) and son (15), both at that formative teenage time of life. I am so grateful to them for reminding me not to miss the wood for the trees.

And I’m living in beautiful Blagdon, North Somerset in the United Kingdom.
