How A Birmingham Mum Makes £500 / Month Working Online – And You Can Too.

Mother and Daughters Smiling

A formally penniless single mother from West Bromwich, Birmingham, has revealed how she is making enough money each month to pay for her monthly outgoings.

Leslie Richards, 48, has been making over £500 a month using a system called ‘Matching’, a method of generating a second income that is starting to soar in popularity across the UK. Sometimes referred to as ‘Matched Betting’, the method actually involves no gambling of any kind and has been touted by UK newspapers as the ‘next big thing’.

It’s a far cry from when the mother of two was made redundant from her job last year and had to exist on benefits.


“It was towards the end of 2014 that I was let go. I got a small redundancy cheque of about £3,000, but after a few months, it just wasn’t enough for all of us. We were really struggling” said Leslie at the start of our interview.

Leslie faced an uncertain future, not sure how she would be able to provide for her family. “I couldn’t provide for their day to day needs, let alone treat any of them. Everyone would like to treat their kids now and then, but it just wasn’t an option.”

“I’m not the best with money” she confessed, “I often spend more than I have. That made saving a bit of a struggle. It got to the point that I was fed up of not having anything and struggling so I started looking around for some ways to make some extra money.”


“I took a new job doing some business admin, the pay wasn’t fantastic but at least I was back working. Whilst I was there I heard about Profit Squirrel from some of my new work colleagues who just wouldn’t stop talking about it. They said they were using it to double their monthly income. I was a bit suspicious at first I have to admit, as these online things sometimes sound too good to be true. Some things try to make you sell something to your friends or family and I just wasn’t happy to do anything like that.”

However, after talking it through with her colleagues, they told her they’d not been having to sell anything but rather had been making money with a betting technique called ‘Matched Betting’.

“I had actually heard of Matched Betting before in the media. But when I tried digging around, no one could really explain it to me well. I didn’t understand what to do to get started so I just wrote it off.”


“Hearing friends talk about how easy it was convinced me, I was going to do this! They weren’t any more intelligent than I was and they claimed they were making hundreds of pounds a month with the method, just by sitting on their computers. That’s what made me decide I’d give learning it another go.”


Leslie told us her breakthrough came when she started learning with Profit Squirrel. The London-based company is not only a Google Verified Business but it is fast cementing it’s reputation as the premium providers of Matched Betting education.

A lot of people have tried to teach matched betting as its popularity has grown, but often their explanations have been poor or overly complicated. It seems that Profit Squirrel are fast changing all of that.

“This was actually really easy to learn. Now I’m doing great. I have a car, a comfortable lifestyle with no debt at all and 4 figures in my bank account. Things are really looking good for us as a family from here on!”


Matched betting itself is well established and proven as a money maker, however, for many years it has been kept strictly to a small underground group of people. Only now do the general public seem to be learning of its existence.

Over the last couple of years, more and more news outlets have written articles about matched betting, and they all seem to agree on how fantastic it is. However, when you read these articles, they make it all seem a bit complicated.

Profit Squirrel claim that they have made it incredibly simple for anyone to learn how to make profitable ‘matches’. What’s more, they claim that not only can you make money, you can do it constantly. We’ve even heard stories of people making ‘matches’ as a full-time job.


Founder of Profit Squirrel Chris Haill

With all this buzz and the bold claims flying around, we were intrigued. Could this be for real? As a starting point, we were able to secure an interview with Chris, the founder of Profit Squirrel, to see what is so special about them:

Q. Why was Profit Squirrel Set-up?

A. Matched betting had been around for a while but as I say on the site, previously there was no-one online who was making it simple to learn. At Profit Squirrel we didn’t think that was good enough and wanted everybody to have the chance to make money from Matched Betting. So we created our unique tutorial system to allow everyone to do just that.

Q. Why does Matched Betting work?

A. Well before I answer that, I should point out that Profit Squirrel has created a series of incredibly easy to use tools that make the whole process incredibly simple. The short answer though is because we use some pretty nifty maths behind the scenes, we’re able to eliminate the risk of not making a profit in the long run. Our tools ensure that you’re the one who wins and not the bookmaker.

Q. Can you explain more?

A. What we do is simplify everything, to give you a thorough understanding of what matched betting is and what it does. Our tutorials go from the most basic level (designed for someone who has little or no knowledge about sports, let alone matched betting) to an advanced level for those that are pros. You’ll be profiting from the very first ‘match’ you make and will quickly get up to speed.

Q. So, this is a long term thing?

A. Oh yes. You can join our other members who are making hundreds to thousands of pounds every single month. Bookmakers hand out these bonuses on a daily basis and we keep you up to date, selecting the best offers that you can use to lock in the most profit. This ensures that you’ll profit every single month and always have a way to earn extra funds.

Q. So what does the future look like?

A. At Profit Squirrel we’re on a mission to raise the average income of the UK by helping everybody who wants to make a second income, do so with ease.

After interviewing both Leslie and Chris, we at the My Buzz office were intrigued! So we decided to give Profit Squirrel a thorough test for ourselves.

My Experience with Profit Squirrel.

Day 1.


I was chosen as the guinea pig for the experiment as I’m actually saving for my wedding in the Summer, so the extra money would be perfect for me. I don’t actually know anything about sports, but I was assured by Chris that this wouldn’t be a problem!

You can sign up to Profit Squirrel for £24.99 to get immediate access to their tutorials and community. I thought this would be a good place to start and signed up.

My first thought was, the site looks really great. Profit Squirrel has a premium reputation, and the website really lives up to that. It was really nice to use and came across as extremely professional.

Within minutes I’d watched a brief introduction from Chris and had jumped into the first tutorial. Here Chris shows you what matched betting is and the exact steps you need to take to get started making money. It all looked pretty simple.

One thing that really stood out to me was how much support was available, should I need it. Profit Squirrel has an amazing London based team that is always ready to assist you or answer questions. I personally find it reassuring when trying something new, to have a team behind me. It’s also nice to see that Profit Squirrel have a real established UK presence and they’re not going to disappear overnight.

I have to confess I know very little about sport. The only experience I have with sports were my school days, and that was quite a while ago. Fortunately, this didn’t seem to be an issue and after watching the detailed instructional videos I felt confident to get going.

To make my first profits, I needed to setup a bookmaker account and chose Coral as recommended. I already had an exchange account with Betfair as I’d bet on the Grand National last year.

Following the instructions, I used the simple matching screen from Profit Squirrel and found the perfect event to get me going. I’d always been a little dubious of betting and gambling sites in the past but as Profit Squirrel is risk-free I felt comfortable knowing all the outcomes of the bet before I placed it or took any action.


The bet I’d selected in the morning was a Premier League game, being played this afternoon. I’d bet on Man United to win. After the game was over, my bet had ‘settled’, an industry term for the game being over. The result It turns out that Man United had lost, so rather than winning at the bookmaker, I won at the betting exchange: Betfair.
However, no problem! The two bets had ‘covered’ each other.

The ‘settling’ of the bets meant I’d qualified for my bookmaker bonus and immediately had a £30 free bet credited to my account. So far so good!

In order to withdraw the money, I would have to repeat the above process. Luckily there was another match later that evening. I repeated the process, following the detailed video instructions.

Day 2.


I went to sleep early last night, a nice thing you can do with Profit Squirrel, as my profit was locked-in no matter what the outcome. I didn’t even need to watch the event I’d made my Match on. My bet had ‘settled’ (completed) and overall had left me with a profit of £23 – a great result!

I’d made £23 from my first bet and in total, I’d guess it took me about 30 minutes of work, including watching the short introductory videos. That works out at around £46/hr! I wish I’d known about this when I was a student!


I got stuck into the second tutorial on the free account. I was still a little slow at the whole process, but it was very easy to follow the guide. It looks like there are instructional videos for every offer in the introductory course.

The process was exactly the same as before, but I had to choose another event. Luckily that’s the genius of matched betting because it works by making Matches on the sports markets, it allows you to do it all year around. Out of football season? Not a problem, there is always horse racing or tennis, or even cricket. Not to mention international football.

After qualifying for my bonus (£20), I repeated the steps to allow me to withdraw it. It seems you almost always lose a tiny bit of your free bonus money in order to be able to withdraw it. But as Profit Squirrel is so good at finding matches, that it really minimises that amount, so for every £20 of FREE bonus credits, I can make around £17 in real money.

That’s exactly what I did this time, withdrawing £17.


In total, I’d made £40 in just two matches!

What do I think of Profit Squirrel? Once you’ve learned a few basic industry terms and followed through the detailed tutorials, it really is very simple. I made £40 in my first couple of days and can really see how people go on to make huge amounts from this.

Because the bonus’ are renewed daily then there is always something to profit from, even if you already have a bookmakers account setup. You don’t have to be a new customer.

I’d really recommend this to anyone looking to make some extra money from home or is even looking for a part time job. Go ahead and join, you won’t regret it!
