GET THAT MONEY!

Posted by arielramon on August 21, 2008

So im still trying to get my business off the ground. I have my ideas and plans set up now it is a matter of having money to start this thing off. I want to use as little credit as possible because the worst way to start out a business is starting off with large debts. i want to see how much i can save by doing small fund raisers and asking for donations and maybe look for a sponsor or two. I have been away from what fundraising is all about for years now so im a little out of touch with the new ones. last i remember was selling candy bars and discount cards.If anyone knows of a good way to raise money with little expense on my part let me know!

That First Step…

Posted by arielramon on August 19, 2008

How many of you have started a small business on your own? Better yet how many have tried to while being in between jobs and made your business a success? Im stuck making that initial plunge into making a business for my self. I am scared that i wont do well and will lose all my investment. I suppose thats the risk I have to take to make my dreams a reality. This is one of the biggest decisions i have ever made because i could alter what i do over the next 5 years or more. So in this blog i am not going to write much because i want to hear from my readers. I want to hear everyones thoughts on what i am trying to do and i especially want to hear from those people that were in my situation and have made it. Help me get the courage to take that leap of faith.

GOTTA STAY STRONG!

GOTTA STAY STRONG!

So yesterday I wrote about the business I wanted to start within the next few months. So far things are going pretty well. I did a little research about other websites like the one im going to be making and according to the stats these sites make well over 100k a year in profit. Thats crazy, I never knew MMA was THAT BIG! So of course that made me pretty happy to see that. I still think i will have a better site though because it will focus on some of the local fighters as well as some stuff for more known fighters. The young guys need exposure too. As I was looking through townhouse listings in FL I received an email from MMAWarehouse.com. I wrote them the other day asking about maybe doing an affiliate program type thing with them. So the email was the guy from that site saying once my site was up and everything to give him a shout! THAT IS GREAT!!!!! They are a pretty large company for MMA gear so if I can attach my self to their stock and name im good to go. Of Course, i will be doing other things besides selling equipment and clothes for money. you have to do advertising stuff for other stores and such. Needless to say I was really encouraged by that email. Oh by the way I wanna thank my boy universitymindlab for leaving that comment on my last post. Id like to follow up with you on what you said. I wanna hear your story dude! I look forward to hearing from ya’ll.

MMA FREAK!!!!!

Posted by arielramon on August 18, 2008

Hey everyone! I noticed not a lot of people seemed to interested in my roller coaster review. Oh well, thats life right sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Anyways, on to new things! I was sitting at work last night and I was thinking of how much i hate being at work. Id rather own my own business and work for my self. I want to use my skills and passions to make money for me and my family. I think it is every Americans dream to become wealthy enough to not have to live pay check to pay check. So, while being bored on my 12 hour night shift I thought up a business plan that i am going to pursue in a matter of months. i just registered a new site called MMAfreak.net it will be really cool once it is up and running. If you try to access it you’ll get a under construction type page so dont bother as of right now. I will post on here the grand opening of the site. With out getting to much into detail the site will contain a blog about MMA, a small merchandise store and some other little goodies that will be known once the page is released. I think over the next few posts i will bring you all along on my journey to creating my own business. It will be an adventure but something that i think you all will want to see. Will i succed at my dream or fail? who knows? So, i ask that you continue to tune in and see my progress. Have a blessed day everyone!
