If I’m going to be completely honest (and I fully intend to be), one thing that really fascinates me is the level of douche-y content marketing out there.
I get it. We all have to make a buck. Some of us work for a living. I assume most people have rent to pay and if sucking people into an email list and selling them countless tools and tricks to improve an aspect of their lives is what works for you, then great.
I started this blog some years back. I remember just starting it because my mind was rife with ideas and I only had so many people to share my knowledge with. I learned the value of service to others very early on in my journey by teaching classes for free, helping with kids classes, cleaning the mats, et cetera. It is only natural for me to want to help others without the anticipation of a reward in return. Your improvement is my rewards, plainly and simply.
But still, I have to make money, right?
“Money is a story” -Seth Godin
My story is no, I don’t need to make money. I have everything I need and though I live paycheck to paycheck and I have a ton of debt, I won’t compromise my integrity for a dollar. I won’t try and sell you the top five secrets only black belts know or the quickest way to get that ever elusive second stripe on your blue belt.
What I will share with you (for free) is my biggest, secret trick for improving your Jiu-Jitsu.
Want to hear it?
Train. Show up to practice and train. Just show up. Show up as much as your schedule allows and do the work.
No Excuses, no BS. Just show up and do the work.
There are no secrets. There are no short-cuts. There are no hidden tactics that will allow you to get your black belt quicker.
Show up, do the work. If you’re still having trouble, work harder.
Thanks again for reading. As always, please send me your comments or feedback on this form below. Please note, there is a button to click if you want off the e-mail list. I am not a content marketer, I read and respond to all of my own emails and I will never try and sell you something.
Being on my email list means you might hear a funny story about how I failed a couple of times in training and what I learned from it. Other than that, I’ve got nothing else to sell.
