In another life I was a professional online poker player. Over the course of about three years I won over a million dollars (not all profit, sadly!) from online tournaments. I was also paid to make training videos and coach other players.

While I was doing this, I wrote an article that was published in Australasia’s largest circulation poker magazine.
This was one of my first paid writing gigs, and at the time I remember being grumpy that it only paid around $50. Looking back now of course, it was a great opportunity for exposure, and if I had had more of an entrepreneurial bent back then, I would have been paying them to publish as many articles as I could manage, with some links to a coaching or affiliate site included!
