I thought I would try and put up a journey to record my own progress over the next few years as I take on sports betting and IM together in order to earn a passive income. When I say passive income I mean put in work now and earn for a long time on autopilot. I don't want to have to put in any more effort going forward after some initial work. Being a fairly solid programmer I can automate (and I have already) everything I need to do for both my betting profits and my IM profits. Sports Betting My goal is turnover over 5 million this year in my sports betting which is going to be my main source of income. Turnover does not mean profit. My profit I am aiming for this year from sports betting is about 10K. IM Profits I don't intend to do too much work on my IM profits this year and would like it to at least hold steady. I want this to hold above $400 a month for the rest of the year and I will try and increase this if I get time to setup more websites. Where am I so far this year: Here is a breakdown of the year for IM and sports betting: IM Jan: $535 Feb: $437 Mar: $486 Apr: $423 May: $452 Sports Betting Jan: $718 Feb: $87 Mar: $795 Apr: $433 May: $699 One thing which is obvious from the above figures is that I turned off my computer in Feb and April while travelling and it meant no sports betting. This was due to travelling in countries where sports betting was illegal. The good thing was my IM profits continued regardless of me travelling. Overall I rounded down on the above figures so the total below may be off slightly if you compare the monthly to total figure: Total At May 31st May : $5070 Goals for the year My main goal is actually turnover rather than profit. I want to get my turnover over up to 5 million this year. End of May Turnover : $2,027,338.83 My other goal is to make 10K combined from sports betting and IM: Current Profit at end of May : $5070 At this stage I am on track to hit profit but not turnover. I'll leave this post here as a starting point and add in my June figures in my next post. I'll try and update it every day.
