Honey Badger Don’t Give a S***

Honey Badger Don’t Give a S***

Posted on 11. May, 2011 by in Fitness Business, Fitness Marketing Systems


This is a guest blog post by my main man Jonas “4 hour work week” Deffes. Jonas is the only fitness entrepreneur that I know of that works less than Tim Ferris. He is just a great all around stand up guy.

Here is Jonas…..

Hey guys.. I recently came across one of the most bad ass you tube videos..

It’s about a Animal called the Honey Badger… You see Honey badgers just don’t give a shit! They Do whatever they want! And People absolutely LOVE the Honey Badger for this!

So how does this relate to us in the fitness industry.. Well… Let me tell you.

If anyone Reading this knows me personally, they know I don’t give a shit what other people think about me or how I run my business.

-I don’t follow the rules.
-I dress how I want
-I act how i want
-I have the stupidest haircuts. (Sometimes I even have Rat Tails)
-I wear offensive shirts
-I work when i want.

I don’t do this on purpose…It’s just me!

And you know what?? It doesn’t effect my business not one bit in a negative way.

Why?? Because people can tell when it comes to my services I’m a total Honey Badger!

You see, nobody really cares How you look!

All they really care about what you can do for them.

Can you help them lose weight? Yes!
Can you help them get healthy? Yes!
Can you help them Get back into those Skinny jeans? Yes!
Can you help them look good for the wedding? Yes!
Can you bring Value to their life? YES!

So what does this mean?

Be YOURSELF!
Be a HONEY BADGER in your life and Business!

It will make life more enjoyable and your business more successful

By the way…If you be your true self …then ALL competition will have the hardest time trying to compete with you!

Jonas defies all the “standard” ways of running a boot camp, goes against the grain, and is an absolute and utter success. He trains over 100 women at a time. I wanna be like you when I grow up Jonas =)

Great post. In business most people feel you have to try and please everyone but in reality, you need to be yourself. People can tell when you are trying to be something you are not and it makes them uneasy… and less likely to trust you. Keep it real!

I definitely agree that Jonas does things totally different from almost everyone else when it comes to his business.
He is the honey badger of the fitness industry.

Jonas – your right on when you say it’s all about being yourself. Rock on brother!

You sait it right that being true to yourself is the best way of being cool. That is why for me Jonas “4 hour work week” Deffes is the coolest guy I’ve ever known.

Everything Jonas says is true… Be yourself. As long as you deliver the goods, nothing else really matters. And even if it did it still wouldn’t matter because “Honey Badger’s don’t give a shit they just take what they want!”

Awesome post Jonas….I knew when I saw you riding a unicycle around the parking lot things were going to be interesting. You have always done things your own way and your hard work has paid off. You have defintely escaped the rat race. Here’s to the Honey Badger !

Two thumbs up for the Honey Badger! I have to agree with you that we have to keep it real and be our own selves. We don’t have to pretend someone just to be noticed. Best regards Jonas!

Noone does it better like Jonas! I mean, most people I know have to make a facade just to be successful in their business. It all ends up with one single thought: “does anyone care enough to even pause for a while and look in the mirror and say, I’m a total mess, better fix myself to please the crowd”. Well the just take another look at the Honey Badger and you’ll find the answer.

Give it up for the amazing Honey Badger! Being in the fitness industry sure is a very tough job, so why make it much harder if you put more pressure on yourself. Keeping it real and simple always do the trick, then success follows.

I have to agree with Jonas here. I think that the world would be a better place if we don’t always aim to satisfy others by means of “not being ourselves”. I just love your ideas and standards.
