I get asked a lot about “how to get sponsored” as athlete or in other forms.
What I’ve learned over the years with sponsorships or even personal relationships is value is king.
Let’s break down both examples.
1) Sponsorships: I’ve created a partnership with @justpruvit based on our core values aligning 100% and my ability bring the brand and community immense amounts of value. We both believe the same thing but my story, my actions, my desires, and my perspective are the proof of our core values in reality, not just on paper. How I live my life, how I connect with others, and how I bring others value at the same time is an example of what @justpruvit and I stand for. The value they seem in me is the ability to walk, talk, and help grow their message and beliefs around the world. It’s not just about my abilities, it’s more about my integrity and purpose.
2) Personal Relationships: @jciake and I not only enjoy our time with one another and all our similar interests, we also provide each other with endless amounts of mutual value in the terms of support, self-awareness, love and laughter, creativity, adventure, etc. as a loving couple sharing a life together. We don’t look at our relationship as a business transaction, haha, but to easily paint a picture and give an example of “value”, this is kind of how it breaks down when you stop and look at things. Same with @justpruvit, it’s not a business transaction we see. It’s the potential to change lives by combining our energy, perspectives, actions, and voices together to fulfill our purpose.
At the end of the day, if you want something in your life you have to think about what it is you’re willing to do for the things you want. Somethings that means sacrifice.
Sacrifice could be time invested into a biz or personal relationship, less time for yourself to support the one you live, your time creating content for the brand you desire a partnership with, money invested into an idea for a business you may have, energy spent in the gym to get in shape, etc.
VALUE VALUE VALUE is the key to any partnership you desire, in business and personal relationships.
