This dude loves sports. He loves watching sports and of course drinking with his buddies and talking sports. SPOOORTTS!
Cliche manliness aside, guess what? He’s getting paid to do just that: to be all about sports!
He’s a true PROcrastinator. Laziness is about doing what you want and getting away with it, avoiding obligation to fulfill desire, and Beege manages to embrace the laziness.
Beege Jaquay is a social media marketer and blogger for Game Time Blitz.
He has a couple kids and is paying down a house; he has bills to pay and mouths to feed. But he isn’t working a full time job. He’s too lazy for that.
And pursuing a career as a professional athlete is too much hard work and persistence.
While he’s no billionaire with a fleet of yachts, Ferraris, and mansions, he makes enough money to support his Lazy Lifestyle of getting to sit on his ass at home, making a living watching sports and talking about them, like he would do anyway if he wasn’t making an income.
So how does he do this?
He uses a series of FREE sports betting apps to win money and doesn’t spend a single dime to cash out hundreds each month. He also turns the conversations he’s having with his buddies about sports into blog articles. Easy, lemon squeezy. We're going to cover the easy ones today, that anyone can play, even if you're like me and know nothing about sports; we may cover the more advanced apps in the future.
Please note: This blog post was originally supposed to air as a Podcast episode, hence the interview format, but due to some technical difficulties, the audio was not recorded to our quality standards, and we were both too lazy to re-record.
The sound was audible, but definitely not publishable, so I managed to transcribe the full interview.
We’ve since fixed the issue and we may have him back to visit Lazy Island...eventually. Anyway, below is the transcript:
We’ve got an interview here and today we’re going to be talking to Beege Jaquays, who’s going to be talking to us about sports apps and how you can make money using sports apps, and you don’t even have to be a super sports fan because he’s gonna make it real easy for us. Hello, Beege, introduce yourself and tell us about who you are and what you’re all about.
My name’s Beege Jaquays from Michigan. I’m pretty good when it comes to sports apps. I got a couple tips and tricks and yeah, let’s start making some money.
So first to start off, you actually are a part of your own sports app so tell us a little bit about that.
It’s called Game Time Blitz and I do all the social media stuff for them. Great, great app with some different contests, where you predict the outcome of certain [professional sports [games]. ALl the questions are 50/50 and doens’t really require any knowledge.
50/50 that’s just like playing red or black on roulette at the casino.
Yeah even without knowing anything, you still have that 50/50 chance
That’s right up my alley, because I’m not really a sports guy, but we’re not really gonna make this an informmercial just for that app, so you basically created this lifestyle of watching sports, doing what you want, and making some bets on these sports apps, where a lot of the apps don’t actually require you to deposit real money. You just kind of win with 50/50 or whatever sort of thing. So tell us more about this sports betting lifestyle.
So yeah I actually don’t do any deposit or anything
So no deposits at all? You’ve invested zero dollars into sports betting?
There are options to deposit. I just personally don’t deposit, so not matter what my winnings are I always started at zero and free.
Now just kind of spitballing, how much are you making per month by not investing in these sports apps and just using them?
I mean it definitely fluctuates, but I’d say I guarantee anywhere from $300-$600 per month.
I mean, that’s rent. That’s pretty good.
Yeah, like I said, it doesn’t really require knowledge it’s all in my phone and it’s max, I mean, maybe an hour a day.
Now you said it doesn't require knowledge. Now I’m assuming your a sports guy and you like to watch sports, and knowledge probably does help or probably doesn’t hurt, but how does a person that doesn’t really pay attention to sports know what to bet on or what to do? Where do they start?
A lot of the apps that do help almost like Game TIme Blitz, where its a 50/50 chance of getting a quesiton right or wrong, that definitely helps with not requiring any knowledge. But a lot of the apps that I do play with, they’ll provide you with information and almost create like the decision you would need to make in order to be proficient. So I mean, the work, the hard work is already done for you. You’re just clicking buttons, man.
I mean having some sports knowledge can benefit you, which it has benefited me. But as far as like a new user, it’s not hard to jump on.
At the same time, not being involved in sports -- it kind of gives you the advantage ‘cause you’re not emotionally attached to the team, you’re not emotionally attached to the game, so you can kind of look at the numbers and the stats and be like “okay, this is the best decision to make” and you’re not worried about like “well, that’s MY guy. I need to choose him or that’s MY team I need to choose them, and you’re more objective.
With someone like me, I’m definitely bias towards certain players or teams or leagues and stuff, so that would definitely benefit a new user that doesn’t really follow sports.
Has being emotionally attached to a certain player or team ever caused a loss in betting?
Not necessarily, although I almost did last week., actually. I’m a huge Packers fan. I always pretty much feel like they’re gonna win, so I did bet “win” last week and they almost threw it. But yeah, yeah, I try and keep my heart out of it and just play with the head.
Yeah and of course I bet no one was betting that the Eagles were gonna win the SuperBowl, and even me, I’m from Philadelphia, so you know, that’s like the state religion out here and no one was expecting it, but that was absolutely insane. And just the emotion -- you know because you’re a sports guy (And it’s funny because we were talking about NOT talking about sports but here we are going into it), but just the emotion. Like this is not, when you like a team right? When you like a team, that’s not just a team to you, that’s --- you with the Green Bay Packers for example that’s like pretty much wrapped up in your identity, right?
My walls are covered in it, most of my clothing, everything is---
You bleed green, yeah
Correct, yeah, and gold.
And so...you understand, how like literally there have been people that have been waiting for that moment their entire life. They’re the underdogs, they’re losing, then finally, it breaks the moment.
Yeah, man congrats!
Yeah, thanks man. World f*cking champions. Anyway, getting back to these [sports] apps and what not. Let’s just run down quickly: What are some of the apps that you actually recommend to get started with sports betting for FREE and not have any and not have any sports knowledge required [other than Game Time Blitz]?
I would go with Play Line. I’ve been doing that for quite some time now. You pretty much just guess the stats of the player: how many touch downs will Brady throw?
Boom! Called it, that’s a pretty cool one just pick the winners of the game, like who you think’s gonna win. You wanna keep a streak going for that.
Then, of course, you’ve got the big guys like FanDuel and DraftKings -- they do the free rolls all the time. If you win those, you get 500 bucks and stuff so that’s nice.
A new one is Winner Winner Chicken Dinner
It’s actually it’s a legitimate sports book just like You’re Betting it Big, except it’s 100% free
Yeah, you can’t knock it ‘cause of the name because even if you think about the big companies like Google or Yahoo -- that is actually a real weird word if you think about it.
Another really,really good one I recommend it’s Predict Picks (enter 011672 after clicking invited by friend). That ones about players and if they do good or bad. You can say if [you think] they [will do either] good or bad. That one I just won $500 with this past month, but usually about $300 each month it seems.
Yeah so people could be basically paying at least about half their rent or grocery bill with these apps.
Yeah, I don’t actually have a full-time job. I’m a part time student, single dad, and I’m paying on a house, so I definitely gotta have an income and this is most what I’m doing.
This is the majority of it and a little bit from blogging too -- social media and blogging.
That’s kind of a little part time gig there.
So getting into the technical details here, as you’re running these apps. Now do you have like multiple phones or are you just like running it on one device. What’s your set up look like when playing these apps?
Yeah so I’ve got my standard phone that I also use to talk to people on Facebook and stuff, but I’ve got a whole other device that has probably like 40 sports apps on it.
So you have like your “main phone”, which you use to call and text and what not, and then I suppose your “phone farm phone”
I call it the money phone. It only has [sports] apps on it that I use to make money.
So what phone do you recommend to install all these apps on and use for that?
I’d go with Android, just because if you have Apple you have no way of getting the Android version There’s really not that many [sports betting apps] that are iOS only.
We covered the apps, Game Blitz, blogging, so tell us about this Lazy Lifestyle, man. I mean, you’re doing what you want. You’re a guy that’s all about sports. Just tell us how you feel about this and how pure conquest it is.
My biggest thing is I stopped working the whole 9-5 effect full time. And then I wanted to spend a little bit more time home with the kids, so i had to find an extra income. And the sports apps [were just kind of a win here and there at the time. Then I was like “well maybe I should try and focus on this a little bit more”, so i just went on this kind of “quest” to try and find EVERY sports app that I could to try and make money off of. And it turned into something that I can do what I want, when I want for the most part and yeah, it’s nice. I mean I’m not well-off and rich by any means, but I got the lazy lifestyle and can kick back and I’m still here to go.
Yeah, doing what you wanna do, and that’s the lazy way.
It definitely helps that I’m passionate about sports ‘cause it’s like “Hey, gimme cash”
Yeah and I think that’s mostly what laziness is -- it’s about just doing what you want and getting away with it and doing stuff that’s easy. So you mentioned “quest” which is kind of awesome ‘cause we talk about gamification a lot on the ProcrastiN8r. So along this journey, along this quest, I imagine you came across some apps that just didn’t work or just weren’t worth your time.
For sure, there’s a bunch out there that require deposits and like I said, I’ve never used funds to deposit. Unless you’re giving it away for free, I’m not doing it.
Yeah, so in other words if people are trying to look for other [sports] apps to join, try to avoid ones that MAKE you pay because there are so many that are free out there.
They definitely have advantages, if it’s a deal that you’re willing to deposit then go for it. I just personally I only do free ones and all my money is free bet.
And that way I mean they say don’t risk more than you’re willing to lose. Well, I’m not willing to lose anything.
Right yeah so a lot of these sports app and what a lot of people probably get discouraged about is the whole sports betting and gambling, especially with it being legalized now. Not depositing money and me playing for free takes the gambling aspect out of it.
Yeah, cause then it’s just more like a fun phone app game, as opposed to okay, like you’re sweating a little bit because you’re risking money.So you can play these sports apps absolutely no risk. Now I wanna cover a few more questions then we’ll start wrapping up, but so you have your list, are you still out there looking and researching for new sports apps?
Facebook’s amazing algorithm likes to recommend to me like almost daily
Oh yeah, I mean I think we pretty much have to accept the fact that Facebook and Google knows everything about us at this point.
Yeah, you’re right. With that being said, a couple months ago when the sports betting...was legalized, even though a lot of things have been policed for it, it’s created this whole accurate aware sports action you can talk about anywhere..cause they have to follow regulations so, I mean I can honestly say that there’s probably a new one that’s legit coming out later day. So I try to keep up with them, check them out, see what’s going on, ya know.
See if it’s worth your time.
Yeah and if it makes the list, it’ll be on the home screen of my money phone.
It’s funny you mention Facebook and finding ways to make money because we actually met though group on Facebook [of] passive income earners making money on their phone. And so last thing, of course: where do we find you? Where can we get a hold of you and follow your foot steps in making money on these sports apps?
Definitely find me on Facebook. I’ve been thinking here coming up next week I’m going to be creating a group messenger that will be just about all of this: making moneyw tih the sports apps and maybe even a bit of sports discussion to help out with noobies or tlak about new apps, that way we kinda separate from other businesses and stuff,. But yeah, definitely add me on Facebook
Here are all of the links to the dozens of apps we mentioned to make money for playing sports betting where you don’t even need money. That is awesome. I am sold because I don’t like to spend money and I also do not really follow sports too much, so that’s perfect for me. And if you DO like sports, then this is just heads on, top tier Pure Conquest, and you should definitely get on this.
