Every major success begins with discovering your purpose in life since this creates the destination you want to arrive at. Unfortunately, most people have no idea what their true purpose is in life. Many individuals have given up on their dreams in exchange for the sake of surviving and chasing money, however, fulfillment does not merely rely on monetary gain. Successful people are happy, fulfilled, and living life with joy because they have discovered their purpose in life and they do everything to achieve it. And this can be done when one aligns passion with profitability, which is what Eric Michael and Jon Suarez did. They were able to transform their hobby of collecting and trading sports cards into a profitable business.
Sports Card Industry
Sports cards have been famous to children, teenagers, and adults alike for generations. Its culture and value are embedded in society, which makes it a great investment, may it be short-term or long-term. Sportscard trading does not instantly make an individual rich, but just like real estate and the stock market, there are inevitably instances when things increase in value due to supply and demand. The most sought-after items in this industry are specific sets of limited edition sports cards. When something is unique and one of a kind, there is a great chance that its value will appreciate through time. Given that people overlook this fact, Eric and Jon took the advantage to turn their hobby into their business.
Major League Profits
If you’re new to the sports card industry, Eric and Jon have you covered. They are the owners of Major League Profits, a consultancy that specializes in flipping sports cards and memorabilia and changing people’s lives by helping them discover a new path to earning income founded in March of 2020. These individuals have been buying and selling sports cards for six years and now that it has gained significance, they are here to help others learn how the industry functions and how to be a productive contributor in the industry. At present, they have helped over 200 entrepreneurs scale their careers and Major League Profits hit six figures in only 2 months of being in business and by the 12-month mark will hit seven figures.
Since the market is completely unsaturated, in their first month they spent $8,000 and received 90 grand in revenue with their total profit margin being 80 percent. Moreover, the reason they were able to scale so quickly, specifically within only a couple of days, is because they had everything automated and everything ready to go. Through their ventures, they realized that the key to success is that automation. What they do for their clients is simple and effective. They run Facebook lead ads, then their in-house sales team follows up with every lead that comes in and continues updating for a year, and finally when a lead has confirmed that they are looking to buy or sell, their sales team books an appointment right into their client’s digital calendar.
This simple process has generated millions in revenue for their clients. Their method of running ads to a sales funnel eventually resulted in selling higher-ticket. However, it is worth noting that it is essential to have proper automation in place with text and emails among others and to hire appointment setters, sales personnel, and personal coaches to help with clients as well.
