Making that money…


Making that money…

Two of my black belts and school owners cracked a million for the first time in 2017.

More importantly, they netted a bunch of it and even more importantly, they lived the lifestyle they wanted (one worked 50 hours a week, the other about 5 hours a week…)


We would all like to be paid what we’re worth. We’ve trained for years, sacrificed time, energy and sometimes a little blood…

So we should be paid what we’re worth, right?

Sorry sensei, it don’t work that way.

You will always get paid exactly what people THINK you’re worth.

And here’s the kicker: people will set YOUR value based on what you do for THEM.

And what you do for them is based on THEIR experience every time they come to class (or watch their kid in a class)

Want more money? Make the experience of coming to class outrageously great and you will make outrageously great money.

My top four black belts schools (all former students of mine) all have 400+ students and did about 3.4 million between themselves last year.

None of them are very good marketers in the traditional sense, but they market by not losing students and a having a triple gold reputation in their cities.

Their students love them and they love their students.

The point? There’s a hell of a lot of money to be earned if you’ll just learn to be a GIVER and make damn sure it’s about the students.

Sound right?

Also, Ya coming to Coztalks?

I’ve dedicated myself to finding and sharing the ways and means to balance success and personal goals; learning to “play to your strengths” and follow your heart. And the journey has been truly amazing.


  1. You will find some interesting points in time in this post but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is certainly some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good post , thanks and we want extra!

  2. There are fantastic improvements on the layout of the blog, I really love that. My site is about wealth generators presentation and presently there are quite a lot of things to be done, I am still a beginner in web development. Take good care!

  3. Hi! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading through your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Appreciate it!
