Let's Start With A Reality Check!

So you have visited this blog and you are excited about the opportunity to turn your passion for sports into a profitable income stream? I am excited for you!

I want you to be able to experience the opportunity that I experience every single day.
The opportunity to make money doing what you love.

You see, even though I work two jobs I have so much energy. The reason why is because on my commutes between both jobs, on my days off from my part time job and on the weekends I get to do what I love and get paid for it.

I get to make money from my passion for sports!
Now, with that in mind, I feel that it is very important that I give you a nice, big fat reality check.

The first thing that I want to encourage you to do is pick something that you are going to LOVE. You should want to do this thing even if you don't make any money from it.

That's the reason why I opted to go the fantasy sports route. I love playing fantasy sports. I've been playing for over a decade for free long before there was ever an opportunity to make money from it.

The money was just the icing on the cake!

Why do I want you to do something you love even if you don't make any money?

Because the truth is..

You probably will NOT MAKE ANY MONEY!!!

I'm here to tell you the truth. I get so tired of people hyping things up. I get tired of people making things sound too good to be true. I would much rather tell you the truth and let you decide for yourself if this is something you want to do.

Here is the truth...

MOST people that play fantasy sports for cash lose more money than they make.

MOST people that participate in E-Sports NEVER win a cash tournament.

MOST people that start a blog, a podcast or an online video show NEVER make any money from it.

So if you are just like most other people you won't make any money either.

There are WAY too many factors that come into the equation for anyone to responsibly guarantee you anything.

I wasn't able to play fantasy sports consistently for FIVE months this year because of a legal issue in my state with the industry.

It took me almost TWO years to turn a profit in fantasy sports. Why? It was because I was new at it and I didn't know what I was doing.

Regardless of which option you choose you are going to be new at it. As a result you won't know what you are doing at first.

Be comfortable with that.

I designed this company so that I can help you shorten your learning curve. However I cannot do it for you. You have to do that and it takes time and patience to do it.

Here is the mentality that I recommend you go in with.

When you go to college to learn a profession you have to spend tens of thousands of dollars. You have no guarantee of anything. You then have to go to school for 4 years, 5 years, 6 years or even more. Then you have to TRY and get a job. If you DO get one, you have to use a portion of the money to pay the loans back.

Some of you still have loans today for degrees in professions you were never even able to get a job in. Yet you are find with that.

I want you to go into your sports endeavor with the same mindset.

Go into it with the expectation that it may take you YEARS before you receive a return worth the effort. Go into it with the expectation that it will take you some MONEY in order to do it successfully. If you don't have a lot of money, make sure you check out tomorrow's blog post as I will share with you what to do if you don't have enough money.

You know what mindset I go into it with?

My mindset is I will do this for however long it takes!

Why? It is because I opted to pick something that I LOVE and that I am willing to do for free anyway. As a result, I can stick around long enough to get the results that I am looking for.

When I did network marketing for 10 years I needed to get results faster. I wasn't doing it out of love. I was doing it for a paycheck. So when the paycheck wasn't as much as I wanted it to be I eventually quit.

You can do plenty of other things if you are just looking to make a buck.

I want you to go into this with a love mindset.

That's what I did and I believe that is what resulted in me being able to make money!
