"How to Turn Your
Black Belt into a Gold Mine"
Attn: Martial Artists and Fitness Fanatics - here's the uncensored story of how Matt Furey raised himself from failure to success in his personal fitness and martial arts business - and became an international best-selling author with customers in over 140 countries
If you're tired of trading hours for dollars and choose to believe there's "something more" in store for you in life, then take a deep breath and get ready for what I'm about to reveal. It may just be the very letter that changes your life for the better - financially and otherwise.
How can I make such a bold statement? Well, let me introduce myself. My name is Rob Colasanti, former President of a leading martial arts information marketing company with over 1,800 member schools. During the 15 years I served with this company, I met black belts and world champions of every shape and size.
Many of these black belts had books and DVDs and courses. And almost all of them weren't making much money from them. To say they were frustrated would be an understatement.
So imagine what went through my mind the first time I met Matt Furey. It was April of 1999, when he strolled into my office in Clearwater, Florida, to shoot a couple videos that we could use in the monthly package we created for all our member schools.
Just so you know, our highly successful information business became a staple in the martial arts industry and we generated more than 30 million dollars during the time I was working there.
So I guess you could say that I know a thing or two about creating and selling information products. And that's precisely why I was "ho hum - here we go again" when Matt told me that he had created and was in the process of creating his own books, videos and courses.
Black Belts, World Titles Be Damned!
Why was I ho-hum? Because I had already seen many, many martial artists with multiple black belts and world titles enter the world of info-publishing, and almost all of them were barely making a dent.
So here comes Matt. He's got a black belt and a world title to boot. To the average person OUTSIDE the martial arts industry, these awards are looked upon as highly marketable - but let me tell you, if they were, EVERY black belt and world champion I've ever met would be fabulously rich. Yet, nothing could be further from the truth. MOST are barely scraping by - including many who fight professionally in mixed martial arts events.
So believe me when I tell you that when I met Matt, I honestly felt that our company was doing him a huge favor. I figured he was "a dime a dozen" and whatever talent he had would most likely never be monetized.
Man, was I wrong.
After watching Matt on camera, I thought of him as one of the nicest, humblest and most professional "BAD ASSES" I had ever met! No cocky attitude, no arrogance, just a really good guy.
And I wanted to help him put his message out to the martial arts community.
Why I Doubted Mr. Furey
When the video shoot was complete, Matt and I sat down for a chat. My new friend began telling me about his venture into the information business which began in 1995. He had been creating books and videos for the participants of various combative sports and was very excited about the potential. He wasn't kicking butt just yet, but he made it very clear that he was ready to crank up the heat and eventually turn his black belt into a GOLD MINE.
But as Matt was talking, I can remember thinking, "Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've heard this story plenty of times before."
Now in my own defense, nearly every celebrity martial artist that I had worked with over the years was trying to sell some combination of books, VHS tapes (at the time), training manuals, seminars, certifications, self-defense courses in a box, etc. They were all trying to break into the information business to supplement their income and increase their exposure.
But the fact is that most of these guys and gals, despite their fame and incredible talents as martial artists, barely made a dime with their information products. They all had the same problem in common. Once they had their info products, even though many of them thought they knew how to successfully market them, the truth is they had no idea how to market or sell them. So they usually ended up with garages filled with products that sat around collecting dust.
Creating Info Products Is Easy - Being a Master Marketer Separates the Men from the Boys
The fact is that creating info products is the easy part. It accounts for approximately 20% of the work (at most). The difficult part is monetizing these products once you have them. This accounts for 80% (or more) of the work. There's an entire science behind marketing and selling info products and I found that the vast majority of celebrity martial artists were simply clueless about this entire concept.
Now I've got Matt Furey in my office, telling me how he's going to "make it big in the info-biz," when I've seen pretty much everyone else fail. For a minute there, I almost felt sorry for him. In retrospect, I had every reason to doubt the guy.
But there was something different about Matt. Something very, very different...
Matt's story begins like the stories of countless other martial arts instructors I've known.
Just before I met Matt in 1999 he had been operating a small martial arts school in San Jose, California. He had a grand total of about 40 students and like so many other instructors was trying to sell information products to supplement his meager income.
One day Matt and his wife Zhannie decided to close the school and move to Florida, so that Matt could continue training with one of his mentors, the legendary conditioning and catch wrestling coach, Karl Gotch, who helped create a form of ultimate fighting (Pancrase) in Japan before the UFC began here in the U.S.
Upon settling down in the Tampa Bay area, Matt started a martial arts class at a gymnastics center and began teaching grappling several times a week. He was working very hard, but only earning a relatively small amount of money. In fact, he was now making less money in Florida than he did in California.
But then, six months after Matt moved to Tampa, something happened ... and the rest is history...
How to Go from Rags to Riches in a Spare Bedroom
What happened between April of 1999, during our first meeting, and TODAY is simply extraordinary.
Matt went from grossing about $100,000 per year with NOTHING left after the bills were paid....to earning an easy 7 FIGURES PER YEAR! In fact, from the time I first met Matt, his "small spare-bedroom info-publishing business" made more money than the company I worked in for 15 years!!!
And the company I was president of had more than 25 employees and incredible overhead.
Yes, in a very short period of time, Matt became a multi-millionaire and one of the most successful information marketers in the world.
The truth is I can't think of anyone who originated within the martial arts industry who is a bigger success story than Matt Furey, when it comes to selling information products and services online. His products have been sold to people in more than 140 countries, in many different niches.
Imagine Being Retired or Semi-Retired in Your 40's
Matt probably hasn't told you this before, but he's essentially semi-retired.
He spends a good portion of his day reading, exercising, studying, practicing martial arts and teaching a wide gamut of skills to his children. Matt has streamlined his work to the point that with an hour or two of work per day he is able to maintain an admirable 7-figure income.
Plus, he enjoys a few months each year at his vacation home in China, where he's opened two Matt Furey Hope Schools for poor children in remote areas. There, he also spends plenty of time training with Master Liu, a kung fu and chi kung master who teaches him secrets that boggle the average mind.
