What If Marketing & Entrepreneurship Was A Sport? ...How Would You Do?

If Entrepreneurship Was A Sport

It's crazy how many people think building a successful online business is easy.

Like it is something you can kinda-sorta work on in your part-time and magically get passive income.

Not only is passive income a BOLD FACED lie...

Designed to sell you courses and software you don't need.

But the idea that building a successful online business is easy is literally destroying people's chances before they ever start.

This is why I believe looking at the world of online business and digital entrepreneurship as a sport is a powerful reframe for you.

No one in their right mind would expect to walk onto tryouts for any professional sporting team, or individual sporting competition…

And not make a fool of themselves.

If I walked onto tryouts for the San Francisco Giants baseball team, it wouldn't even be funny.

If I walked on at an Olympic 10 m air pistol shooting competition I would come in absolutely last-place.

Now, if I chose a sport that I enjoyed… Like archery.

I bought all the proper equipment and became CONSUMED with every aspect of the sport...

Then I spent all day, every day for 3 to 5 years shooting arrows at my targets...

Spending my nights studying the sport, the strategy, the techniques, studying the greats, taping and analyzing my form...

Again, 100% focused effort, 7 days (and nights) a week, no holidays, no vacations... For 3 to 5 years...

Would I be competitive at that point?

Maybe not world-class, "Show Me The Gold!" -Olympic status...

But I bet I'd be one of the best at a local and regional level!

I'd be bringing home some prizes 😉

And honestly, I may very well be on that Olympic tryouts track!

Which could lead to the world-stage if I kept with it!

Does this make sense?

Beyond the 'practicing the sport' itself... You also need to consider the additional habits that a professional athlete takes on… Outside of practicing their sport:

Going to the gym every day...

Eating an incredibly clean and well thought-out diet to maximize strength and energy...

Practicing meditation, visualization and strengthening the mind...

No Mountain Dew or Budweiser and Frito-Lay's induced all-weekend gaming sessions or Netflix benders for professional athletes!

And I'm here to tell you the same is true for real professional Internet marketers!

Now, here's the silver lining...

Imagine there were Olympic sports that only had a few dozen people in the world competing at a world-class level.

And honestly, they're all not that good… There's just no competition so they haven't had to raise their game in a while.

This is what it is like when you find a great niche market and audience that's being underserved.

If there are only 12 competitors, that means you are only three competitors away from the first page of Google for your best keywords!

By choosing a great niche that's underserved and has not been dominated by other digital marketers, you are literally stacking the cards in your favor.

If you want to step into the ring with a heavyweight champion and go after the make money online or Internet marketing space….

That's your choice.

But it is good to ask yourself if you would truly step into the ring with gloves on to face Mike Tyson...

And I'm not even talking 22-year-old Mike Tyson in the 80s when he was at his peak...

I'm talking Mike Tyson right now at 50 years old.

Check him out working the heavy bag at 50:

Tyson achieved such an elite level in his sport in his prime that now, 25+ years after his prime he is still better than most amateur boxers who dream of the Olympics.

Not to mention what he'd do to us outsiders of the sport, in the ring!?!

This is exactly how the internet marketing and online business markets are, today!

Old dogs who have crushed multi-million dollar launches for decades are actively building epic campaigns you will never hear about to DOMINATE the big 3 niches (dating, fitness, money)

It is a game to them they can't let go of...

Just like how Tyson still enjoys hitting that bag, the big dogs of internet marketing don't feel right when they aren't doing the work.

Plus you have that hungry, well trained new generation with 15+ years experience making income online looking to make a dent in the universe, too. 😉

Competition is straight-up FIERCE in some niches...

Now, my goal here is not to dissuade you to create a successful business online.

I wanted to give you an honest re-frame of the whole game.

Plus, I want you to realize that there are hundreds of thousands of people trying to dethrone me as the most helpful Internet marketer in the world.

You may be one of them… And I'm not worried about it!

I actually let that MOTIVATE me.

Every day I'm working as hard as I can to maintain my status in my role at the top of my game and to capture more market share.

I study the great direct response marketers, entrepreneurs and copywriters of the past, constantly consuming high quality "Game Changing" information (not browsing shitty Medium blogs and Facebook groups)...

I'm so committed that I don't drink any alcohol, I don't smoke weed, I don't eat processed foods, I exercise multiple times per day, meditate, even geek out on my sleep to make sure I've got peak energy at all times.

And whether or not you're coming into this niche, which I highly don't recommend you do…

Or whether you're stepping into a unique sub-niche like "woodworking" or "flyfishing" or "Fitness for retired women who play tennis"...

Where you have a much better chance at creating $10k/mo success in reasonable time...

Know that you are entering an arena that is full of professionals already dominating!

So you need to be truly committed to the path, the process, and be willing to do what it takes!

Pretend that gaining market share in a niche is the equivalent to competing at an international level in a sport and all of the sudden "the work" it takes to create the success you desire makes sense.

Because you would never buy a course that promises:

"Become a professional PGA golfer in 30 days with my ninja tactics even if you are a complete beginner at golf!"

You would laugh at that realizing it's a complete scam...

And the moment you get to where you are laughing at the overhyped courses launched by the fake gurus...

Realizing they are promising something that does not exist…

To make more money and brag it was all passive (but they just emailed you, did a launch and built a course, none of which is passive)...

You break free at this point.

Free from the hype cycle, the distractions keeping you from being like Tyson putting in work, dominating the heavy-bag!

You will finally unsubscribe from their lists...

You will stop acting like a Frank, and finally become a Matt!

And this is the "trick" is to literally become one of the best in the field through years of hard work…

At this moment, your life just became simple

Your expectations are in the right place…

You are now ready to do whatever it takes.

Which is why I'm starting my Monday morning right now with this best email I could come up with today for you…

Next up I make my YouTube video, then it's on to a blog post!

Because I know I have hundreds of thousands of wannabe marketers thinking it's easy to do what I do.

And just like Mike Tyson destroying that heavy bag...

I'm right here keep in my game tight, too...

Reminding you that this level of intense work is the process to create success online.
