Ray Barros' Secret to Managing Money Well - Supportive Spouse

Here'sRay Barro's interview with The Straits Times. Click article to read. My jaws nearly dropped when I read that his wife stood by him through his first seven years as a trader despite $1m in losses. While I have to admit that not many traders out there can sustain the $1m losses and still make a come back, I cannot agree more with the importance of having a supportive spouse. A trader can focus 100% without the added pressure of having to answer to an unsupportive spouse. In this Thanksgiving, I'll like to say a big Thank You to my beloved hubby for his patience and support all these time ;)

As far as spouses go, it's the last million they are worried most about, not the first million...

The hardest part can be having a spouse that insists you be able (and willing) to spit out the details of your P/L whenever s/he desires -- and not be emotionally involved in what they hear, good or bad.

Nicely done, SOT. Enjoy the holidays!
