There are pros and cons to the life of the professional gambler, but for most the former outweigh the latter quite considerably! As with any job, there are significant perks that only experts enjoy, and here we look at a few of the good aspects of living The Life:
1. You will find that you have more time for other activities that are important to you, as long as you have proper time management in place. You will be able to spend more time with your family, or devote more of your attention to your garden if you want to. Career gamblers do not have to work within the constraints of 9-5 job requirements.
2. You may well become a celebrity! Maybe not as instantly recognisable as an A-lister from Hollywood, but word travels pretty fast these days, thanks to how much more connected we all are, and it only takes one win to get your name known.
3. You will find that you will become far more mentally resilient. This kind of toughness will help you enormously in other areas of your life, and you can call upon it as and when you need a little stoicism.
4. You will travel widely. Poker competitions, for example, happen all over the world, and combining this aspect with the chance to earn money is a dream for many.
5. You can secure your financial future. Big wins – combined with good investments – means that financial freedom will become a reality.
