Jonathan Little Professional Poker Player With $7+ Million Winnings, Founder PokerCoaching.com (VC EP9)

Jonathan Little is a professional poker player with over $7 Million in career earnings from tournaments (both online and in person) and is one of the most popular poker coaches/personalities in the industry.

He’s also co-founder of PokerCoaching.com, a membership site and training community with over 5500 paying members, making it a multiple seven-figure business.

I met Jonathan via Jason Calacanis and his angel investor syndicate. Jonathan is an active investor in all kinds of different asset classes, from NFTs to Magic: The Gathering cards, although he is of course most focused on poker.

During this interview we go back in time to learn how Jonathan got his start in poker, how he quickly became a professional, earning as much as $30,000 a month playing a specific type of poker online. We also learn how he upped his game to the point where he won over a million dollars from one tournament – twice.

There’s a lot of wisdom in this interview, and while much of it seems specific to excelling at Poker, Jonathan’s advice can be applied to other aspects of life, from being a startup founder, content marketing and when to invest versus when to spend your money to grow faster.

I enjoyed this one a lot, and I’m sure you will too.
