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 Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
