Is Betting on a Sport a Legit Business?

Betting on a Sport

Surely you’ve bet on sports before, right? But can you really turn the art and science of sports betting into a legit business? The simple answer is YES, you can indeed set up a legit sports betting business. Here’s one thing you need to bear in mind, though:

Ninety Nine

99% of those who think they can make it big as a sports bettor are better off NOT even thinking about it!

Just like Internet marketing, more people fail at sports betting than those who succeed. What sets the successful few apart from those who fail? For one thing, successful sports bettors treat it not as a gamble or a game; rather, they treat it as a business. They know it’s not easy money and they need to work hard to achieve success. If you want to become a successful sports bettor, therefore, you first need to adopt a mindset of it being a business and NOT a hobby.

Sports Business

The beauty of this business is that you pick your own sports and your own hours. You even get to pick your work environment. You have no boss to answer to, no employees to pay, and no problems with daily commute. It’s a bit like stocks trading, except that you don’t need to pay broker fees. Just bear in mind that it’s more about the investment you make rather than the excitement of the gamble.

Oh, and since this is a legit business, you should be prepared to pay taxes.

Sometimes Moving a House Is a Sport

Move a House to New Location

Did you know that instead of moving to a new house, you can actually move a house to the new location? Depending on the circumstances, this may, in fact, be the more practical solution.

Brief History of Moving Houses

Back in the 19th century, moving houses was so common that many people dubbed it their “favourite winter sport.” Considering that power tools and gasoline still haven’t been invented at the time, it’s easy to understand why the act of moving a house is likened to playing sports. This act becomes even more impressive when we consider that houses were sometimes moved over long distances during those days.

Now a days it gets easier, if you are a folk who lives in the land down under (Australia). You just get professional removalists Brisbane folks, or removalists Melbourne (depending on where you are from or where you are moving into), and these guys will do practically everything for you. Although packing the boxes will still fall in your hands so don’t get sloppy.

These days, most people would opt to rent/buy a new house or have one built on their property. There are still some, however, who figure that it’s more practical to move a house to their property instead of getting a new one built. Let’s say you were able to buy a farmland. You could check nearby areas to see if there are houses being auctioned off. Be on the lookout for houses scheduled for demolition, as these are often very cheap. It may cost you much less to have such a house transferred to your farmland rather than building a new house.

Moving a house can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $60,000; a pretty small amount compared to what you’d spend if you had a house built, right? So, if you’re looking for a new sport, why not lend a hand in moving a house?
