I am Jim Makos and I work from home!

By gambling and investing with real money online, I put my money where my mouth is. I also write about my success or failure.

Whatever work I do, I do it from home. I work from home as a writer. I work from home as a trader. I work from home as a gambler. I work from home as web designer. I even run a business from home! And whatever I learn by doing all that, I am happy to share it with the world by writing and blogging online.

JimMakos.com is my personal blog! If you are looking for my latest blog posts, check out the blog’s timeline!

I am a sports, gambling and finance writer

I have become a writer after spending quite a few years risking my very own money to make money. My work appears online at several pioneering websites of the industry, apart from my own blogs.

I began with card counting at blackjack tables, then moved to sports trading at betting exchanges, played online poker and ended up investing in US stock markets and forex. Nowadays I mostly write than gamble or invest, about these topics.

  • Finance and Investing
  • Offline and Online Gaming/Gambling
  • Affiliate Marketing and Online Advertising
  • Technology and Social Media
  • Entrepreneurship, Work from Home and Business Ideas
Hire Me!

I write mostly online, so that also makes me a blogger. So I blog. I blog at my own blogs or contribute to other blogs. I am writing for the mobile.casino.com site and my work has also appeared at:


Trading, gambling and playing poker from home

video-training-youtubeI am still a trader, gambler and poker player. Writing doesn’t mean I have quit gambling. I still enjoy trading stocks, currencies or futures. I still test new sports betting strategies and sit down at online poker tables. It’s just that I have found joy in writing and have become a lot more creative. Make sure you don’t miss any of my videos!

Whatever I discuss about comes from personal experience. That is why I need to stay active in the investing and gambling world!

I don’t do reporting. I am all opinion, all the time. I am not in the industry, I am just talking about and sharing my experience of taking risks online by investing with real money.

Entrepreneurship and running a business from home

Investing is not just stocks and finance! I am always looking for new business ideas by like-minded people. You never know when the next big thing will come knocking on your door!

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.

I have turned my writing into a business. As I have incorporated my blogs, I am gaining more and more experience day after day about how to run a business from home. Again, that is another topic you will find me talking about! As a total newbie in the business world, I am sure we have a lot in common, although, I am already a CEO!

  • Investing
  • Gambling
  • Technology
  • Web Design
  • Social Media
  • Gaming
I don’t consider myself an investing expert or trading guru. Online trading is a difficult beast to handle and the learning curve is quite steep. Learning about trading never stops. Through the process of improving my methods and getting familiar with new markets, I share my experience, tips and any useful tool I come by. Join me as the journey to financial freedom unfolds!

Check out the Investing category of this blog. You may also want to visit my finance blog at TradingGraphs, where I discuss my latest ideas on stocks and forex trading.

Gambling is like investing for me. I never felt the urge to gamble. I only risk money when I already know that I have an edge. Much like trading stocks, forex or futures, I think in the same way when betting on sports, playing online poker or counting cards at blackjack tables!

Writing about gambling though is another story. A writer that discusses gambling strategies is often misunderstood. That is why I try writing in the simplest and most straightforward way. Additionally, I write about the gambling industry as well. I discuss the latest earnings report of a gaming company or about the newest legislation and regulation concerning the gambling market worldwide.

You will find these topics among other gambling-related stuff in the Gambling category of this blog.

 Writing about technology usually involves reviews of the latest gadgets. Despite the fact that I do share my opinion on tech gear that I personally use for myself, my tech posts are mostly focused on web technology and programming. Quite frequently though you will see me writingabout innovating technology, like Google Glass.

At this time I am writing my tech reviews and tips at my personal blog. Check out the Technology category. When Techcrunch and Mashable come knocking on my door, you will be the first to know!

 Building websites is one of my hobbies. I am not professionally engaged into web design.

As I gained experience by managing this website since 2005 and creating new blogs for myself, I thought of giving a hand to friends who needed assistance building their own websites. I do not do graphics or theme design though.

Read my web design guide, latest web designing tips and check out some of the websites I’ve built at my work showcase!

 Social media is a topic that is gaining popularity. As more and more people join social networks and become active online, there is an increased interest for social networks and how to make the most out of them. Combined with tools such as the author rank that make authors stand out from the crowd, writers must get more involved with social media, if they want their voice to be heard today. Personally I have chosen to use Google+ for my social sharing needs.

Again, these articles of mine fall under the social media category of my personal blog.

 Gaming is my 30-year-old hobby. I enjoy playing video games since the first day I sat down in front of my Amstrad 1512. If that doesn’t ring a bell, don’t worry; I am reviewing modern games. That and also keeping an eye on the gaming industry, which I monitor with the intention to combine my investing skills with the latest news. Yes, Grand Theft Auto 5 sold like crazy, but what does that tell me in regards with the software company’s earnings and performance?

Until Gamespot, IGN and EuroGamer become interested in my posts, you may read my gaming reviews at the Gaming category of this blog.
