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!

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

1. Exercise Daily

It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

3. Acknowledge Your Limits

Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

The basic nutritional advice includes:

  • Eat unprocessed foods
  • Eat more veggies
  • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
  • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

    5. Watch Out for Travel

    Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

    This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

    If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

    6. Start Slow

    Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

    If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

    7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

    Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

    My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

    If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

    I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

    Final Thoughts

    Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

    Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
