We Need Your Support!

Bushel Boys Early Years

Dear Friends and Family,

It’s always been a dream for each of us to start a business, but my brothers and I never thought that we’d be starting one together. Well, that’s just what we’ve done! As of July, 2015, Jeremy, Nathan, and Matthew Carman are now the Bushel Boys, LLC!

About a year ago I was doing some testing with some entrepreneurial ideas and websites when my brother came for a visit. I showed him what I was working on and I could tell he was interested. Then, when I mentioned it to my other brother, there was no looking back. We were all hooked on the idea of starting a business together. Fast forward about a year and we now have a full-fledged idea, designs for a website and are now in full-on development!

The idea is this: Create a platform to allow people interested in trading commodities to practice risk free. With our platform, users will be able to mock trade commodities using real, live conditions, such that if it were a real trade you would have made (or lost) the money invested with a broker. Having experience in trading commodities ourselves, one of the most essential aspects of trading commodities is what is referred to as “paper trading”. Paper trading is simply pretending you’re in the market and tracking your progress based on real market conditions.

Thus was born! will allow aspiring and professional commodity traders alike a place to practice and test out trading ideas and theories. All at no risk to losing real money! We’re really excited about this and think it will be a well-received platform once we get the word out. And that’s where we need your help.

So, how can you support us?

  1. If you’re remotely interested in trading commodities, look no further. We’re glad to help you.
  2. Chances are, though, that you have no idea what the last two paragraphs mean and are kinda just staring blankly at the screen. That’s cool – we know it’s niche – but we still need your help. We would love it if you would help us spread the word about this to everyone you can think of.

Here are some ways you can help us spread the word:

So, with many thanks and much appreciation, thank you for your support! Please stay in touch and share, share share!

Creating a Web App

Most recently I’ve been quite busy with starting a new venture. I’m excited to be working with my brothers on this particular project.

The name of the project is PaperTrade Me. The basic idea behind the project is a platform to allow for commodity traders a place to practice trading on the real market. One of the fears of going into the commodities market is the fear of uncontrollable loss of money invested. While it is true that loss is a possibility and even an expectation when trading on the commodities market, one can learn how to control the losses and eventually have more wins than losses. That is where PaperTrade Me comes in. On this platform commodity traders – novice or experienced – can come together and log their practice trades and see just how well they could do.

At this point we’re working with a designer and are starting communication with a developer.

Updates to come later.
