What Do You Do in Your Spare Time?
I tend to work and think about the action 24 hours a day. I have an unhealthy obsession with numbers and sports. If I’m not learning or working then I do not feel productive.
What’s Your Favorite Restaurant in Las Vegas?
Vegas is world renowned for all of the fine restaurants that are here. Joel Robuchon at the MGM Grand happens to be my favorite. People think that I’m crazy when I’m one of the few gamblers in the world who is allowed to eat their food to go at the Skybox sportsbook in front of the nightclub Hakkasan.
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
I fail all of the time. You can not win every wager and knowing how to deal with that psychologically is of the utmost importance. The most important part that I’ve learned through the years is educating myself that failure is an option and it happens all the time. Every time I fail there is a reaction to make myself and those around me better moving forward. It is inspiring to know that my big bets and success keeps me at legendary status. One of the biggest news stations in the world WGN penned me a legend last year and the list continue to grows each and every year.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Those who do not follow sound advice and expect positive results. I recently went 17-1 which is nearly impossible and I asked a client how much money he had made to ensure that he was following my advice. When he told me that he bet other basketball games that I had not advised and lost the bulk of the money I just made him I was irate. I work tirelessly to ensure great results. I’m not an overnight success and do not expect others to be as well but if they follow the slow and steady wins the race model then they will succeed with my advice.
What’s One Prediction About the Future?
Manage your time the best you can. Some people want all the money in the world. I just want more time. More time with my children, family, and doing what I love is important to me. To those who help us save time will become wealthy in the future. I correctly predicted the Denver Broncos winning the Super Bowl in the HuffingtonPost months before it happened and make betting predictions all the time on future events. Thats what I am good at doing and my advice to those reading this is find what you are best at and excel in that field. You can’t be everything to everyone but you can always help yourself now and in the future.
