An investment expert in the field of cryptocurrencies, businessman, and digital influencer Antônio Neto Ais recently had an opportunity to train with the legendary Rogério Minotouro.
Being passionate about martial arts himself, Neto made an association between the world of fighting and business.
Martial arts are all about entrepreneurship. Martial art is not how much strength you have, it’s how much technique you have. Bringing this to entrepreneurship, it doesn’t matter how hard you work, but how much you produce. A lot of people want to be successful on the basis of strength and forget to look for the technique.
Another important point, said Neto, is to learn from those who are more experienced than you are. To hang out with mentors – both in fighting and in business alike:
It was a great honor to train with Rogério Minotouro. In one hour of conversation with a master, you have 10 years of teaching. Things that take 5, 6 or 7 years to learn, they teach you in one sentence. Having masters, mentors accelerates results and is extremely important in the process.
As a CEO of the largest blockchain holding in Latin America – Brainscompany – Neto says that he owes his success in the financial market to taekwondo training since he was 6 years old; as well as to boxing, which he currently trains.
He credits martial arts training for making him more disciplined and more resilient.
Both in the fight and in the market, you need to have resilience, study your opponents or challenges well, work to be better every day, be focused, and know that, if I’m training, I don’t need to fear anything. The martial art brings me discipline, forces me to be a better person every day.
