Interview with Mark Shawzin (@the_pattern_trader)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
35 years in this industry is a long time that I fortunately was able to spend well. At some point, I felt it was time to share things I’ve learnt through experience to others who could benefit from it and, well, here we are.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
The process of learning never stops in this ever-changing world and economy, so stay focused.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
When you’ve been in the field as long as I have, you end up having a lot of people to thank. I’ve worked with so many great people and professionals, I’d be here a while if I was to credit them all. To be concise, I think everyone I’ve ever learnt from, worked with, engaged with, and taught. Every situation in life leaves you with a precious takeaway that helps you grow and learn.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Although I do not think teaching and imparting knowledge with others is a form of “goodness”, rather a responsibility to contribute in making the world a smarter place, I also use profits from my lessons and trainings for cancer donations.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.”
