September / The Fall is coming quick!
Hear me out, this is important: especially for boxers, fitness trainers/ coaches / managers.
If you are an athlete > think like an entrepreneur. If you are an entrepreneur > act like an athlete.
Both train and prepare for the season ahead .
Build your business relationships now over the summer, because when the Fall hits you want to be ready with your backend to flip over a proposal, an offer, a pitch.
Boxers who are sidelined right now due to the lockdowns > start working on your sponsorship packages, because I have every reason to believe that there are plenty of companies out there who absolutely want YOU to represent their brand ~ they just need to know who you are, what you are up to and why they should sponsor YOU.
In case you forgot, let me remind you: because boxers have HEART! And, you know what it takes to strive to be and perform at your absolute best. Boxers have built character over time and cultivated the compassion and humility that comes with the grind and with working so closely with others.
Here’s the thing, you are not limited to only making $$$ in the ring. You have so much more to offer than what your fists can hold. You have a message that people want to hear, a spirit that people want to feel and a story that continues way beyond the fight nights and bright lights.
Think ahead, create your openings, look for your opportunities and position yourself because you are more than a boxer and boxing is way more than a sport !
I hope to see so many more boxers in the near future gain the sponsorship you deserve so that you can ultimately focus on your training, perform at your peak and take care of your career, families and community.
