Meet JT Funk

Today we’d like to introduce you to JT Funk.

Hi JT, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I started my career as a professional wrestler in August 2013 at the age of 19. It has granted me the opportunity to travel all over the world while inspiring people from every different aspect of life. With nearly 7 years of wrestling experience under my belt, I could no longer wrestle during the pandemic in early 2020. I embarked on a new journey that forced me to look at myself as an entrepreneur/ business owner.

I utilized my demographic and target audience to launch a variation of products such as masks, shirts, wrist bands, and the most popular JT Funk Dolls. With these innovative products, l was able to reach a demographic outside of the wrestling world which allowed me to trademark my name (JT Funk) and also form my LLC. “We all have different journeys in life but whatever journey it is, be thankful because it will allow you to evolve in a way you never imagined”.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Anything that is becoming great is never a smooth road! In my first few years in the wrestling business, I couldn’t understand certain aspects and it didn’t help that I was a first-generation wrestler so I kind of had to navigate and explore alone.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?

I am the most productive of traveling to so many places I’d never imagine all while meeting new people and inspiring. The thing that sets me apart from others is the fact that I have an easy approach personally and can relate to anyone from anywhere.

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
I do all my marketing, promotional, social media posting, etc. All by myself.
