Made a Direct Business Deal With a Manufacturer

Last Update: July 25, 2018

Made my first business deal directly with a manufacturer! This means the manufacturer agreed to send me free rashguards and fight shorts for jiu jitsu in exchange for me doing a review on the wears on my website. They agreed to give me a commission for sales too! The beautiful thing is that this is a manufacturer so if I can get a commission on gyms buying fightwear items in large quantities at wholesale so it could lead to some very big payments down the line. I'm really looking forward to getting this small manufacturer some exposure and we can continue to help each other. My first free rashguard and shorts I'm reviewing are pictured below and I should have them in a couple more days.


Wealthy Affiliate costs 50 dollars a month. The free rashguard and shorts for jiu jitsu is a $100 value that I get for free! I'm sure there are many more coming as well! This means I'm technically already a month ahead on my payments to Wealthy Affiliate! So google adsense started to get some early clicks, I've got my first direct business deal made, and hopefully I start to get my sales conversions started very soon. Love how all the training is here at Wealthy Affiliate and how it really breaks down each step of the process so you can keep building your website out in an efficient way while not feeling completely overwhelmed. Take things a step at a time and you and your website will grow. The hardest part for me is breaking out of that imaginary cap on how much wealth is actually possible for a person like me to obtain. The day I joined Wealthy Affiliate I truly felt like "screw it, I'm gonna shoot for it and I don't care about who laughs at me for trying." I've wasted a lot of time thinking that's all that was possible for me were just these hourly jobs. Little by little I'm growing and I'm sure there's going to be a day when I get a nice surprise check and the glass of my imaginary ceiling will crack just a bit.

This past two weeks have been very hectic for me and I've barely had any time to log in at all. Haven't made much growth in my website but I have seen that my site is growing a little bit in clicks. As I slowly but surely take the steps to move out of my dayjob I'm starting to see my dream of training Jiu Jitsu like it's a full time job manifesting. Work now. Passive income later. It's almost a "too good to be true idea."

I'm sure many of you can relate. It's difficult at this time. I have a full time job. A full time girlfriend, and we have two full time little kid nuggets running around.

It takes a lot out already having the full-time passion for jiu jitsu I spend a lot of time doing, and now I've made all this progress with this website. However, I don't think anybody can keep up with the relentless pace I was pushing through as I got my site up and running. I need to find balance and there's only one place to go.


As I'm moving forward with Wealthy Affiliate i do have to admit I'm getting a bit exhausted. However, I'm not one to give up and I do feel confident I will find balance between everything and create a way to consistently grow in all the areas I need to. Just gotta keep at it, and I'm sure I'll be very successful here at Wealthy Affiliate! Jiu Jitsu Jonathan can't be Jiu Jitsu Jonathan without Jiu Jitsu. Lol so I'll have to find balance otherwise my website won't work. Thanks for helping me stay positive guys!

This is a great opportunity for you congratulations, I hope that many gyms come onboard. If you don't mind me asking, did you approach the manufacture or the other way around. I wonder how this works, I am very much into photography and all the equipment, it would be a dream come true to work with a manufacture. Just don't know who approaches who.

A small independent manufacturer contacted me off of Facebook trying to sell me their wares. I told them about the website I'm building and how we can help each other. I actually have a couple other manufacturers who are interested now as well. They should be contacting me again next week. I just saw an opportunity to start up some hustle so I can gain commission and free wares for jiu jitsu at the same time. I also contacted the manufacturer of a review I already wrote off of amazon as well because I just don't feel right reviewing a product i haven't tried myself. it sounds like they're probably going to send me a gi as well.

It's actually getting to the point where work wise I might have put too much on myself. Careful doing this because you might end up having to write 20 reviews and 20 products coming to you and just don't have time to do them.
