6 Money Making Sports Related Business Ideas

6 Money Making Sports Related Business Ideas

Around the world, people are either playing sports or watching sports. Anywhere you look in the media, sports are being broadcasted worldwide and have sometimes had even more viewers than the news stations—imagine how many people watch the Olympics and the Super bowl!

If you love everything sports, why not start a business circulating around something that you love anyway? Listed below are ways to make money in the sports industry.

1. Sports Magazine or Newspaper

If you’re a great writer and have a love for sports, you may be able to start your own newspaper or magazine. With the amount of sports fans around the world, you’ll have no problems with gaining a following as long as your content is quality material and well-written.

Up-to-date sports writing, along with well-written, quality materials will make the readers want to purchase your magazine. The more people that purchase your newspaper or magazine, the more money you will be able to take in.

2. Sports Radio Station

Another way to get involved with sports in the media is to start a sports radio station. This particular type of radio station is dedicated to anything and everything sports related, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. It may seem daunting to have your station run constantly, but the benefits will make it worthwhile.

Running your station at 24 hours a day ensures that it can reach a variety of different people who can listen at any time of the day that they find convenient, which can increase the number of listeners once it’s established that your station will give the latest, up-to-date sports information on real-time. You can get paid based on how many listeners are tuning into your station.

3. Sports Betting

Although not the best way to make money, as it can get addicting and risky, this is another way to earn some cash in the sports industry.

Sports betting thrives in any part of the world, and with a sports betting business, people can be allowed to visit your establishment and place bets via your outlets or website.

4. Sports Cartoons

Just like with sports writing and sports broadcasting, you can share your love of sports while making money. If you’re a graphic artist or animator, you could produce cartoon movies and then pitch your idea to a producer who will most likely purchase your work if they feel that it could attract many viewers.

Sports cartoons won’t be too much of a problem to sell because it children that love certain sports will most likely be the viewers, and it will also allow other children to fall in love with the sport as they watch the cartoons.

5. Sports Shop

If you want to be able to talk sports with a variety of different people, you can open up a sports shop. You can keep it as a general sports shop, or stick to one specific type of sport. As long as you know which sports are popular in your region, you will undoubtedly attract customers no matter where you set up considering that every part of the world is engaging in some kind of sports event.

The type of merchandise sold at your shop can range from memorabilia to sports equipment—such as souvenirs, apparel, balls, and shoes—really anything and everything sports! The more merchandise you have, the more people you will attract, the more money you can make.

6. Sports Marketing, Promotion, and Branding Company

This business can thrive extremely well if you are promoting popular teams and putting out quality merchandise. Getting into sports marketing means you should be knowledgeable about which teams are doing the best during their seasons where people are more likely to purchase their memorabilia—such as jerseys, souvenirs, apparel, etc. It will help you in picking which athletes you would want to wear your brands to promote your business.

This type of business takes dedication and work but can be worthwhile in the long run – remember, brands like Nike and Adidas started at the very bottom before rising to where they are now.

All in All

These are only a few ways to get into the sports industry business. No matter what your interests may be, you could always find a way to tie it into sports. So get the balls rolling and see how you can turn your passion into income!

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
