Previously I explored investing from the female perspective. The idea of bricks and mortar i.e., residential or commercial property investing has great appeal to most women. It is tangible and can be tizzed up with an exterior paint job or reasonably priced landscaping to the front garden. In doing so, extra value (capital growth) can very quickly be added.
In this article I want you to consider the diametrically opposite. I invite you to get your head around the idea of investing or more specifically trading the stock market.
So I asked Louise Bedford the question: What makes a successful share trader?
Her definitive and emphatic response: “Mindset is God”.

Louise arrived at this conclusion after being struck by a serious illness that left her without the use of both arms. Unable to work, she looked to share trading as a means of making an income.
Thankfully Louise fully recovered the use of both limbs and has gone on to not only understand but also conquer the market. Her burning desire to share her knowledge resulted in Louise authoring not one but four best selling books on how to read and profit from stock market trends regardless of whether the index is up or down. Trading Secrets, Charting Secrets, The Secret of Candlestick Charting and The Secret of Writing Options, are without a doubt “must reads” for anyone wanting to successfully trade the share market.
Her invaluable insights into how not to lose your shirt trading include having a strategy and being disciplined enough to stick to it. She explains how we can be our own worse enemy, when unbridled emotions scupper our ability to trade analytically and sensibly. Besides understanding the charts, self awareness and personal development make up the equation of a winning trade.
Louise is a woman after my own heart as she believes that wealth and philanthropy are inseparable. As she rightly says, “Give a hand up and not a handout” as part of her commitment to international programs that disburse and administer micro loans to women entrepreneurs in developing countries.
Louise and business partner Chris Tate offer a mentoring program to guide the novice and even the experienced become successful traders. If you would like to know more about this remarkable lady, find her at http://www.tradingsecrets.com.au
