BIOAllow me to introduce myself. I am Dr. Jeffry Weiss. My formal education took place at Drexel University (B.S. - Accounting), Temple University (M.B.A. – Statistical Analysis), The University of Pennsylvania (M.A. - International Affairs), Clayton College – (Ph.D. - Mathematics). I was a stock market analyst and investor, and put out my own mutual fund newsletter. I was a day trader for five years. I owned a car dealership. I helped found a natural food business. I have been a freelance writer for 33 years. I invested in real estate. And I developed a number of Internet businesses. ABOUT THE BOOKThis book is not simply about racetrack betting. It is about regaining control of your life. There is no such thing as a "career job” anymore. The average person has 6 jobs during their lifetime. When a person is let go, the average salary at their new position is 67% of their old salary.Companies today want more than your time. They want you to consider your job over your health and the welfare of your family. After all, there are a dozen more people standing in line to take your place should you not be deemed a “team player.”There are those who seek their independence by starting their own business. It takes a great deal of money (minimum $25,000), and a lot of time (self-employed people work an average of 65 hours a week). Almost every self-employed person I have met said that if they knew how hard it was going to be to start their own business, they would never have undertaken the task. While it used to be that your presence was required at the racetrack, betting now can be accomplished from the comfort of your own home or office. With the advent of off-track betting, and now Internet betting, the advantages are many. You can even bet via your cell phone.It’s the best business opportunity I’ve ever come across in 50 years of interacting with the marketplace. I think you will feel the same way once you begin.show more
