Everyone who joins Goal Profits has an aspiration, whether that is a consistent second income or a full-time career. While it isn't easy to trade successfully from day one, some new members are prepared to put their previous gambling habits aside and start afresh with a trading mindset. It is these people who often have the most success.
Here is an email received yesterday:
Just completed my first 30 days trading using your service and I just wanted to let you know how I'm getting on.
So before I joined I had very limited knowledge of trading, I knew about LTD and scalping but that's about it.
The more I learned about trading the more I wanted to learn so I searched high and low for more strategies and methods of finding an edge and landed on your website.
Safe to say I had enough to sink my teeth into here!
So much for me to learn and develop my skills with. I read through the forum, and the Launchpad and I still do this everyday.
I set up a matrix mainly around LTD strategies as I was comfortable with them, and kept an eye on other strategies.
When I was comfortable with a certain strat and a strong selection was there I would play it to give myself the experience of actually trading the strat.
So some I really enjoy and can pick games for and some I just don't get/like.
I like to keep it simple.
So as of today I have 4 first half systems, 5 second half systems and 1 correct score.
I pick the strongest selections for each of these and play them. I usually end up with 1 or 2 games on weekdays and 3 on weekends. Some days I have no selections and I'm fine with that.
I've attached a pic of my Betfair P&L for the last 30 days using £10 stakes. (ignore the horse racing as I was experimenting with a pre race scalping model).
I'm absolutely amazed with the result and more importantly how you have caged my psychology from a gambler who wanted to get rich quick and easily to a trader who is consistent and solid.
I will point out that I have a full time job (45+ hours a week) and I don't have the time to trade as much as I would like but my goal is to supplement my current income.
Sorry about the lengthy message but just wanted to get over how pleased I am with your service.

What a fantastic result!
The key things to note are that you can trade successfully even with a full-time job, because our Team Stats software does most of the hard work for you. Those who claim they don't have time to trade are talking absolute nonsense!
But most of all, if you are prepared to approach football trading with an open mind you can make it work. If you have not achieved success so far, then you need to change something otherwise you will just get the same results over and over. You can't possibly expect anything different.
Stephen did exactly that; started from scratch and has started to form good habits rather than stick with those bad gambling instincts which don't work.
Mindset is a huge part of football trading. Stephen has started to work his way through our 16-week Launchpad programme, built his own personal trading portfolio with strategies he likes and he's reaping the benefits in a big way.
Success stories like this make our hard work so worthwhile. The Launchpad Mentors should take huge credit too for their hard work supporting members. A brilliant win for our Betfair trading community!
