Entrepreneur Spotlight: Jason Stewart
Meet Jason Stewart, an entrepreneur of epic proportions. Jason works in many different industries. He prides himself on Epic Fighting San Diego’s Premier MMA fight promotion. This Epic event hosts four live MMA events per year, with the last fight having twenty-two live fights making it the largest MMA bout in California history. But it’s wasn't always like this! Jason started Epic fighting as a passion project, which led to a lot of work, with little to no return. In fact, when Jason was asked how much he was making on the fights, he often had to tell people that he lost money!
The mere fact that it wasn't profitable yet didn't stop Jason from having faith in his company! Jason worked tirelessly to build this MMA promotion, got new sponsors, and built connections that would skyrocket this promotion. Now Epic fighting runs four events that bring in over two thousand people and live stream to over ten thousand! All this was done through faith and hard work!
Jason believes so much in entrepreneurship he is teaching his children the value of sales, branding, and starting their own business. When we asked Jason his three tips on building a successful business this is what he told us!
1. Have the heart of a fighter:
Don’t let the obstacles that get in your way stop you from building your dreams. Training in martial arts and business has taught Jason to get back up when he is knocked down! There will always be a hardship in your business, and in your life but don’t let that stop you from building a future that you believe in!
2. Don’t be afraid to get hit in the face:
By now you've noticed the advice is fight themed and although we don’t mean you will literally get hit in the face (hopefully), business will hurt! You will face rejection and be put in situations that are uncomfortable or may even cause you to feel pain. However, if you want to succeed in business and in life you need to push through that. Find a point of laser focus on your goal! Just because something hurts doesn't mean it can take you out of the fight.
3. Have a passion for your business:
If you don’t have a passion for your business, if you don’t believe in yourself, in your product or your service, you will find it very hard to succeed. Those that fight for a living spend hours training a day, they go through extreme physical and mental training, and have strict restrictions put on their life. If they didn’t have a passion for fighting, do you think they would succeed? So why does it makes sense that you would? Find something you are passionate about and find a way to make it into a business.
