But after ten years of making money and losing it, learning and growing, Sutton gained what he was lacking in his life: autonomy. Now, he’s helping others learn the financial lessons he’s learned, starting with the mental framework necessary for success in trading and life. In his book Money Mind, Sutton shares his journey, along with strategies for creating independence and the tools to maintain it.
