Tuition services
(and mentoring)
for investors and traders

Robert can provide mentoring services and support for investors and traders.
BullCharts customised hands-on tuition and support (onsite or remote);
specially targeted for new share market investors and traders.

Why does Robert do this?
(1) A brief comment about mentoring and tuition
The world is different

The very broad world of investing and trading is just that - very broad. There are so many different options to choose from, and different ways of doing things.

Many trainers, and many mentors, will be happy to sign you up to work through their somewhat specific and targeted program. And that program might be what you want, or it might not be what you want.

The answer!!

How do you find out what you really want to learn? Robert's suggestion is that you quickly gain a broad understanding of the various options, and learn the key terminology.

Robert's Share Market Toolbox is aimed at doing just that; but it can't happen overnight - it might take a while. And Robert is available to have a chat to help you start out, and fast-track, your journey of gaining knowledge and skill in this area.
Mentoring options

Different training companies and different mentors will potentially offer a large range of different ways of learning.

Some might offer you a 1-day $1200 training course (Robert doesn't do this), and they will give you a little bit of information, and then try to sell you their $5000 training course. Others might offer you a $3000 package of training which seems to be what you are after.

It is so easy to commit to one of these, and then discover it is not really what you want. I have heard of people who have done course after course after course, and they are still searching.

Robert is available

Robert is reasonably independent (it is difficult to be 100% independent), and is happy to have a lengthy chat with new-comers to help you understand the options, and to work out the best way forward. An initial chat over coffee on this topic tends to take up to about 2 hours - browse the Toolbox web site to see how broad the topic is.

Robert's fee for this initial coffee-chat is $120 flat, with a discount available for Toolbox Members. You can phone for a free appraisal.
