I touched last week on following gambles and when to avoid/hop on board etc. This week then I wanted to go into goals and keeping track of these goals in order to achieve them. To start this subject though I’m going to start with a shameless plug of Value At The Races 😉
When I was first approached by WIN to offer a service to its ever expanding customer base I sat down and worked out what it was I wanted to achieve. I wasn’t shy in writing down the objective of being the best service in the long term on the platform. It’s a goal I have achieved and as I write this, the service is currently at the top of the all time charts but not only that I’m at the top of the Champions league table across all three platforms. You can see that here.
We made another 100+ points this weekend and although we do of course suffer with losing runs over the long term period of two years Value At The Races has remained on top for well over a year now. Anyway I digress and I’m not here to show off but the above is to merely point out that I achieved my goal that I’d set out and the remainder of this article will hopefully show you how I achieved this.
Now of course I’d already proven that I was able to make a living from my betting but when starting Value At The Races it wasn’t viable to offer between 10 – 12 selections a day (this is the average number of bets I have per day from the whole of my portfolio) so I had to decide which selections would make it into the service. What I actually ended up doing was breaking down my portfolio and closely monitoring which sections where on a winning streak and which ones where on a losing one.
Surprisingly I decided to tip the selections from the part of the portfolio that were on a losing streak! This was due to the simple fact that knowing that each section was a profitable one over the long term by getting involved during a losing run it was inevitable that the winners would come. If I’d stuck to the winning ones they would inevitably hit a losing run.
I went back through all the history of each section and looked at how I would rotate them in terms of offering tips to Value At The Races customers and the service was born. Since then it’s had its ups and downs but overall those that stuck with the service have made well over 1700 points profit. So I’m showing off again but how was this achieved?
I started by writing my goals down and then planning how I was going to achieve them. Every month I sat down and reviewed everything I’d done that month and then planned the following month. By taking my time and planning everything each month I was able to see clearly how I was achieving my goals.
At the start of the year I wrote an article about how to plan out your objectives in becoming a professional gambler and for those that have been following you should be well on your way to having set up your approaches and breaking down your bank. Please let me know how you are getting on and as always any questions please let me know and I’ll help you anyway I can. You should be planning out all of your goals and reviewing them every month to make sure that you’re on track.
Back next week with more insights into betting and less of a plug of my own service 😉
