Why would a former professional poker player be a great data consultant? Let me tell you my story.
I always LOVED numbers. At the age of 16, I watched a movie about Poker called “Rounders”. I was instantly curious about the game, and even more about the possibility of turning what looks like a game of luck, into a profession.
I started studying the game intensely. Playing online for hours, running poker hand simulations on my computer, and analyzing each hand I had played that day in order to improve my game and find weaknesses in my opponent’s game. With my love for numbers, it was a match made in heaven.
You see, poker is not just about luck. It is about making the best decision based on statistics and data. Just like in business, you don’t have all the information and you don’t always know what cards are going to fall, but you have to be able to take the best possible decisions based on the data you do have.
I played poker professionally for 15 years and made over 2 million dollars but felt like I was only contributing to my own gain. It felt empty after a while. So I decided to bring that unique skill set to the business world and help business owners stop gambling with their business and start treating it like a professional.
