Listen to Episode 014 with Shane Sullivan here:
I met Shane back in 2010. At that time, I had just launched a baseball themed t-shirt business while I was in my senior year of college and I was introduced to Shane; who was running one of the biggest baseball accounts on twitter: @ShtBallPlayersDo
We were both NCAA baseball players.
We were both graduating with degrees in business.
And, we were both entrepreneurs running businesses from our dorm rooms.
So, I was super excited to interview Shane on the Unleash Yourself podcast because I knew he was going to have so many incredible stories to share.
Why? Because he's been hustling for years and has had so many incredible experiences because of it. It's that simple.
"That was my first taste at working for myself. Which I quickly got addicted to."
For those of you who don't know Shane, he is the founder and personality behind the Baseball Fam empire. He runs the @ShtBallPlayersDo twitter account which has over 111,000 fans and is also the host of the Baseball Fam Podcast which just launched less than one month ago and has already become the #1 "new sports podcast" on all of iTunes.
The funny part is, on the surface it all seems like it started by accident. Like it fell into his lap.
Yet, Shane has been starting businesses since he was 17 years old and has already accumulated a tremendous amount of experience. He's learned what works and what doesn't work by working in the trenches - not sitting on the sidelines.
"I remember waking up to a $40 order one day. And, even though it was just $40, the fact that I woke up one morning and had made money in my sleep amazed me."
Besides his Baseball Fam community, Shane also became Star Executive with Vemma (an affiliate marketing company) where he built a team that sold over 2 million dollars of Vemma product all over the world.
