Meet doppelganger me, Sam Priestley, the Lazy Entrepreneur himself. Today on the show we pick his mind a bit and find out how he’s being lazy and getting away with it.
Loved being a college student.
Hated going to classes
The “wake up moment” where he realized he wanted to get out of the 9 to 5 grind (and go back to the lazy college student lifestyle, without needing to show up to class) was when he was filling out applications that asked him to write an essay on why he wanted to work for that company.
He started making a living using matched bets on sports betting sites in the UK, taking advantage of “free money to be with” promotions.
Had an opportunity to build an 8 or 9 figure salary with atech start up but TURNED IT DOWN because it was too much work.
