What this site is all about

Hi, I’m Steve!

I started TradeGrind with the goal in mind to be able to quit my day job working as a desk jockey/office cubicle monkey.


My short-term goal is to make $1,000 a month from betting the sports picks from my own systems that I developed, as well as from a few different handicappers that I will be buying picks from. I know that I won’t be able to quit my job from this amount, but if I can make $1,000 a month, then I can make $10,000, etc.

My long-term goal is to be able to quit my job when my bets (and this blog) make a consistent $5,000 a month in income, after expenses. I believe in full transparency (or at least as much as possible, and still protect my privacy and my sportsbook accounts).

Complete Transparency

Win or lose, this blog will tell all. Every winning streak, every losing streak. Nothing held back. Full disclosure. There are so many scammers out there that give this industry such a bad name. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Kinda like when you drink Diet Coke. Fake sugar sucks.

I’m starting this experiment with $2,000, spread out over multiple sportsbooks from all over the world. I chose this dollar amount in order to best take advantage of the various deposit and welcome bonuses that sportsbooks offered to new accounts and when re-funding existing accounts.

Re-investing my profits

At this point in time, I do not have any plans to withdraw any of my winnings. I want to fully utilize the power of compound interest in order to grow my bankroll as quick as I possibly can.

Thankfully, I do not need this income in order to live on; that is what my day job is for. This is ideal, because by re-investing my winnings back into my business, my bankroll will grow much more rapidly than it would if I were withdrawing my winnings in order to live off of. More money = more profit. And more profit = the faster that I can quit my day job and do this for a living.

In addition, some sportsbooks only really pay attention to accounts when they request a withdrawal. I have a few tricks up my sleeve that I’ll be explaining in future posts. It’s a cost of doing business, and I’m able to keep my sportsbook accounts and still get offered juicy bonuses when I have to deposit more money.

Wrapping it all up

It will take a lot of hard work. A lot of discipline. Persistence, patience, and relentless dedication. No, scratch that. Relentless obsession.

This is been almost 2 decades in the making. I know that I can do it. I know that it can be done. I’m highly organized, and I track everything. I used my statistical and analytical skills to create the greatest sports betting system that man has ever known.

I am here to prove, once and for all, that …

YES! You can make a living by betting on sports.
