A Personal Note from the Author.
Why add cascading dollars and money fans to this website? Because although gambling is entertainment, in the long run, its about money and the game of making more!
The Gambling Balance book is not all about winning. In fact, it is very little about “winning.” Other coaches have greater expertise in that area. It’s about winning your life back. It’s about “getting a piece of the action with peace of mind,” It about helping you.
Who am I? I am a Nobody…
More Appropriately Spelled “Know-body”…
I’m Someone who Knows Something YOU
Would be Well Served to Learn!
I’ve spent 11 years moving through this process. The topic of “Controlled Gaming” has been my passion. I am well-read and well researched. Dozens of Ph.Ds have contributed to this work. Research studies from Canada, Australia, UK, Spain and the United States are quoted within the text of the book. There is controversy in my position and passion in my purpose. It’s an interesting read!
I faced the addiction and I won! When I got in trouble, the only option offered to me was to “QUIT.” Through research and personal soul searching, I found answers. I formulated a system that works for me… Because QUITTING shouldn’t be the only option! And, those charged with making a profit from us (gaming venues) shouldn’t be the ones teaching us “Responsible Gaming.”
