From Navy to Jiu Jitsu fighter, this entrepreneur has battled in life in many different ways. Coming from a background of having two brothers and needing to fight for everything that she wanted. She turned her passion for adventure into a career with the Navy, and when that chapter of her life had come to a close, Megan Erber found comfort at kicking butt in Jiu Jitsu.

Now, a bit later in life, dealing with injuries and not being able to recover as fast. Megan Erber has turned her competitiveness into becoming a entrepreneur by taking her knowledge of the promotional items industry to make it work for herself. With the help of her mom, she has been able to spread her wings and go out on her own and take her passion to another level! And yet somehow she still finds time to be a mother to six children!

13
[00:00:53],220 –> [00:00:57],629
the Navy the only reason i end up
getting out was because I kid and it was

really tough really tough the travel and
being away for so long

15
[00:01:01],980 –> [00:01:07],560

40
[00:02:50],660 –> [00:02:54],680

there’s a lot in there there’s a lot of

41
[00:02:54],680 –> [00:03:00],50
kids right yeah so how did your dreams
come about like we’ll start with jujitsu

42
[00:03:00],50 –> [00:03:05],630
and then you can work is the marketing
yeah well i was working from home being

43
[00:03:05],630 –> [00:03:09],109
industry as a promotional products
distributor and I started to put on some

44
[00:03:09],110 –> [00:03:13],340
way and I’ve always been very athletic
very into sports but i was working a lot

45
[00:03:13],340 –> [00:03:17],840
and I looked into getting a personal
trainer and the personal trainer just

46
[00:03:17],840 –> [00:03:22],10
happen to do jujitsu and he kept saying
your body type is so good for judge it’s

47
[00:03:22],10 –> [00:03:26],120
your long your lien you know you’re
strong let’s do it knows

48
[00:03:26],120 –> [00:03:30],680
at first I was kind of hesitant i’m not
a big fan of grappling with big sweaty

49
[00:03:30],680 –> [00:03:34],940
men but I took to it I was really good
at it and I did a tournament like right

50
[00:03:34],940 –> [00:03:39],500
off the bat and I i placed third like a
big deal but I didn’t expect to win and

51
[00:03:39],500 –> [00:03:43],190
then it was like a drug like I’m
addicted to this i love training i love

52
[00:03:43],190 –> [00:03:47],570
that i could actually take down a
full-grown man and and dominate him and

53
[00:03:47],570 –> [00:03:50],870
I still can’t like there’s youtube
videos of me of choking out some penn

54
[00:03:50],870 –> [00:03:55],820
state alumni linebacker and knocked him
out cold so that’s cool to me that

55
[00:03:55],820 –> [00:03:56],760
method

56
[00:03:56],760 –> [00:04:00],569
that’s how i got into it and take a
break from it for about a year or two

57
[00:04:00],569 –> [00:04:05],429
because i was moving a lot 44 work at
the time and really got back into about

58
[00:04:05],430 –> [00:04:11],970
five years ago full-fledged wanted to go
pro is doing MMA and jiu-jitsu full-time

59
[00:04:11],970 –> [00:04:14],640
and working but because of travel

60
[00:04:14],640 –> [00:04:18],358
I was missing out a lot but i would just
train when I would travel so if I was in

61
[00:04:18],358 –> [00:04:22],859
Chicago for a trip to find a school and
train there in dallas school vegas and

62
[00:04:22],860 –> [00:04:26],610
school so I did a lot of cross training
which just made me a better better

63
[00:04:26],610 –> [00:04:31],740
player so being in jiu-jitsu and there’s
not that many women in jiu-jitsu at all

64
[00:04:31],740 –> [00:04:37],289
with that being said there’s not a lot
of a parallel or gear for women at least

65
[00:04:37],289 –> [00:04:40],289
something that what i would want to wear
you know you go out and you go to dick’s

66
[00:04:40],289 –> [00:04:44],219
sporting goods and use my rash guard and
Oriole order one off the website they’re

67
[00:04:44],220 –> [00:04:48],210
all geared more for men so with that
being said they’re very boxy or they’re

68
[00:04:48],210 –> [00:04:52],138
they’re not fitted right so they don’t
cover your hips and that’s that’s a big

69
[00:04:52],139 –> [00:04:53],39
thing for women

70
[00:04:53],39 –> [00:04:57],870
um so I actually started my own fight
your line originally was called kimura

71
[00:04:57],870 –> [00:05:01],199
fight here which I had some trademark
issues but it’s now dark horse pike here

72
[00:05:01],199 –> [00:05:05],940
and it also kind of how I got started
into starting my own promotional

73
[00:05:05],940 –> [00:05:11],280
products company i am selling branded
apparel and gear and that’s kind of what

74
[00:05:11],280 –> [00:05:15],388
I’ve been doing for the past 11 years
just with different schwag like little

75
[00:05:15],389 –> [00:05:20],820
trinkets and stuff and t-shirts here and
there so kind of combine it all being in

76
[00:05:20],820 –> [00:05:23],940
the promotional products industry for
about 11 years I thought it would fit so

77
[00:05:23],940 –> [00:05:27],719
it went from jiu jitsu to fight your
line combined it in with my experience

78
[00:05:27],720 –> [00:05:31],20
in the promotional products industry and
now I I basically run two companies i

79
[00:05:31],20 –> [00:05:36],960
fight your line and my promotional
products company so how started here I

80
[00:05:36],960 –> [00:05:38],130
am

81
[00:05:38],130 –> [00:05:43],530
first off what is a rash guard ok
alright i guess it’s easy to compare it

82
[00:05:43],530 –> [00:05:46],679
to what surfers where they kind of
complete protect themselves from the

83
[00:05:46],680 –> [00:05:52],409
cold water or the reef so it’s very
similar a lot of jujitsu competitors

84
[00:05:52],409 –> [00:05:56],610
where it’s a rash guard its long sleeves
or short sleeves and it has a really

85
[00:05:56],610 –> [00:06:01],740
cool funky design on it you support your
team or your school and right now it’s

86
[00:06:01],740 –> [00:06:05],159
kind of like battle of who is the
coolest rashguard so my template

87
[00:06:05],159 –> [00:06:08],849
jiu-jitsu community of contest of who
has the whatever school has the coolest

88
[00:06:08],849 –> [00:06:09],490
rash guard

89
[00:06:09],490 –> [00:06:13],569
some pretty cool ones out there often
have to send you some pictures and

90
[00:06:13],569 –> [00:06:16],630
they’re really really cool actually i
can post them in the the Shona yeah

91
[00:06:16],630 –> [00:06:17],830
definitely

92
[00:06:17],830 –> [00:06:22],359
so how is your your dreams received by
your family i guess first jujitsu and

93
[00:06:22],360 –> [00:06:26],650
then later wanting to go on out onto
your own your own company

94
[00:06:27],160 –> [00:06:31],479
well no mother likes to see their
children beating up other people so my

95
[00:06:31],479 –> [00:06:36],520
mother was like I can’t watch can’t
watch even though my love my one she

96
[00:06:36],520 –> [00:06:39],758
still won’t watch any of my videos she’s
scared to death and I get that I mean I

97
[00:06:39],759 –> [00:06:44],229
couldn’t imagine my one of my children
going in fighting and getting hurt by

98
[00:06:44],229 –> [00:06:48],430
yeah that’s scary that’s really scary so
my my mother and my dad kind of like

99
[00:06:48],430 –> [00:06:52],300
whoa that’s what you want to do but my
kids think it’s the coolest thing and

100
[00:06:52],300 –> [00:06:56],20
all their friends think it’s so cool so
I’m kind of like the cool mom who who

101
[00:06:56],20 –> [00:06:59],799
fights people and as far as we started
my own company they’re all very

102
[00:06:59],800 –> [00:07:01],870
supportive and very very happy

103
[00:07:01],870 –> [00:07:05],949
I’ve actually partnered with my mom with
a promotional products company she’s

104
[00:07:05],949 –> [00:07:10],840
actually my business partner so it’s a
it’s taken off very quickly and a lot of

105
[00:07:10],840 –> [00:07:14],409
lot of support for my friends in the
promotional product industry as well so

106
[00:07:14],409 –> [00:07:19],120
what steps did you take to get started
with jujitsu and then with with emotions

107
[00:07:19],120 –> [00:07:21],39
coming yeah well with jujitsu

108
[00:07:21],39 –> [00:07:24],820
I’m very competitive and I think that’s
what brought a lot of it out in me my

109
[00:07:24],820 –> [00:07:28],990
four brothers and I felt like you’re
always competing for attention or food

110
[00:07:28],990 –> [00:07:32],740
or love or whatever it might be you come
from a big family you’re always

111
[00:07:32],740 –> [00:07:37],180
competitive so doing these tournaments I
like I had to win I always felt if I

112
[00:07:37],180 –> [00:07:42],310
don’t I didn’t win it’s like didn’t
train hard enough i won i think 19 in a

113
[00:07:42],310 –> [00:07:46],840
row straight and I remember my first
loss i flip the Boston for a fight

114
[00:07:46],840 –> [00:07:52],239
didn’t have anyone there to coach me and
I lost I was so depressed I was like on

115
[00:07:52],240 –> [00:07:57],130
the worst luck in jiu-jitsu and then I
went to the pan am games a week later

116
[00:07:57],130 –> [00:08:01],599
and i placed third so I still lost like
a match but it’s hard i don’t i don’t

117
[00:08:01],599 –> [00:08:06],789
lose well i’m a poor loser but but
losing actually taught me more but it

118
[00:08:06],789 –> [00:08:07],360
taught me

119
[00:08:07],360 –> [00:08:10],150
ok this is what you’re lacking this is
what you need to work on and I’m

120
[00:08:10],150 –> [00:08:16],60
very dedicated to being the best and
even if i’m not the best I want to be

121
[00:08:16],60 –> [00:08:21],190
the best so I I kind of use that in all
aspects of life I coach my kids soccer

122
[00:08:21],190 –> [00:08:26],590
team I i teach them skills so they can
learn it on their own or so I’m not

123
[00:08:26],590 –> [00:08:29],859
screaming at them like I want them to be
the best for themselves not for me but

124
[00:08:29],860 –> [00:08:31],210
for themselves

125
[00:08:31],210 –> [00:08:34],720
I i apply the same thing to my own
company you know I don’t want to do the

126
[00:08:34],720 –> [00:08:37],660
same thing everybody else is doing i
want to do it a little bit different so

127
[00:08:37],659 –> [00:08:42],219
i have fun promo videos I have you know
different ways of of advertising and

128
[00:08:42],220 –> [00:08:47],770
doing my own marketing and and just fun
thing people like fun and so I try to

129
[00:08:47],770 –> [00:08:51],100
keep everything fun with the rash guards
and the and the fight your line and

130
[00:08:51],100 –> [00:08:55],750
everything is keeping it fun keeping it
like so we’re there any roblox with all

131
[00:08:55],750 –> [00:08:56],530
this

132
[00:08:56],530 –> [00:09:01],780
um yes I actually had a huge roadblock
last year with my fight your line i had

133
[00:09:01],780 –> [00:09:05],500
the opportunity to sponsor a very
well-known fighter for Bellator it was

134
[00:09:05],500 –> [00:09:06],790
the championship fight

135
[00:09:06],790 –> [00:09:10],930
his name was Emanuel Newton he was
fighting King mo he won the previous

136
[00:09:10],930 –> [00:09:15],430
match with a spinning back fist and it
was like a rematch so it was 15 rounds I

137
[00:09:15],430 –> [00:09:20],79
mean this was my opportunity to actually
make it big you know that that moment I

138
[00:09:20],80 –> [00:09:24],850
finally made it was all over Twitter it
was insane and I was blowing up and then

139
[00:09:24],850 –> [00:09:28],480
there was another company on a canada
that had a very similar name is mine and

140
[00:09:28],480 –> [00:09:33],730
they just came at me with every legal
thing possible and unfortunately i do

141
[00:09:33],730 –> [00:09:41],650
that 86 it season assistant and kind of
put me in a little you know made me sad

142
[00:09:41],650 –> [00:09:44],380
for a little bit because I’ve worked so
hard to get to that moment where I’d

143
[00:09:44],380 –> [00:09:48],70
finally made it i finally was in my name
out there sponsoring a huge fighter that

144
[00:09:48],70 –> [00:09:52],60
was kinda the rug was pulled out from
underneath me so I took a while I to

145
[00:09:52],60 –> [00:09:57],130
change the name and finally got there
but i’m there now and it’s better and I

146
[00:09:57],130 –> [00:10:01],960
lot more products and a cooler logo and
and my own company to back it up

147
[00:10:01],960 –> [00:10:05],830
so how about with jujitsu a lot of
injuries

148
[00:10:05],830 –> [00:10:11],200
three years ago I was working on a new
move and I was sparring with a guy who

149
[00:10:11],200 –> [00:10:15],400
was probably about 50 or 60 pounds on me
and freak accident he just landed on my

150
[00:10:15],400 –> [00:10:19],540
arm wrong and it snapped in half that
put me out for a couple months

151
[00:10:20],50 –> [00:10:24],160
and I’m not the kind of person that sits
till I tell you I was at the gym weekend

152
[00:10:24],160 –> [00:10:27],760
week with my cast on and they had to
change my cast a couple times because it

153
[00:10:27],760 –> [00:10:31],480
smelled so bad from the Sahara actually
took the cast off and put a brace on

154
[00:10:31],480 –> [00:10:36],550
because they’re like you’re disgusting
he needs to shower shower just shower my

155
[00:10:36],550 –> [00:10:41],469
arm so that was a huge robot just the
injuries have really injuries and age

156
[00:10:41],470 –> [00:10:46],360
I’m 33 now so I don’t heal up as quickly
i had a really bad injury in my hip

157
[00:10:46],360 –> [00:10:51],339
toward the labrum and was still working
on it for about eight months and come to

158
[00:10:51],339 –> [00:10:54],790
find out end up having arthritis and
it’s that’s really put me back in my

159
[00:10:54],790 –> [00:10:59],319
training so where I wanted to go pro at
my age and with all the injuries that

160
[00:10:59],320 –> [00:11:03],700
I’ve had its kind of been a huge
roadblock so as much as I would love to

161
[00:11:03],700 –> [00:11:07],630
be the next ronda rousey i’m not going
to be I’ll be too old by the time i get

162
[00:11:07],630 –> [00:11:10],630
there so hoping one of my kids could
take on that legacy

163
[00:11:11],920 –> [00:11:17],949
well how did you overcome the being you
know sued part it was really i just had

164
[00:11:17],950 –> [00:11:21],250
to stop everything I did season this is
everything I kind of put it put it aside

165
[00:11:21],250 –> [00:11:23],950
and regroup

166
[00:11:23],950 –> [00:11:27],459
it took awhile to just get that
creativebug back to find a name that I

167
[00:11:27],459 –> [00:11:32],619
loved tons names out there that I liked
and knowing all this could be it and

168
[00:11:32],620 –> [00:11:34],959
then someone else already had it you
know

169
[00:11:34],959 –> [00:11:37],599
come to find out there’s a lot of fight
your lines i was doing things

170
[00:11:37],600 –> [00:11:38],290
differently

171
[00:11:38],290 –> [00:11:43],480
I think that’s why i did so well but
again i had to find one that I liked my

172
[00:11:43],480 –> [00:11:47],410
like I saw something that was the katy
perry song like dark horse it’s kind of

173
[00:11:47],410 –> [00:11:52],29
like my vibe of jiu-jitsu it’s a little
bit of this little bit of that and I’ve

174
[00:11:52],29 –> [00:11:55],570
taken a bunch of different styles to
make it my own and some of its frowned

175
[00:11:55],570 –> [00:11:56],920
upon

176
[00:11:56],920 –> [00:12:02],649
because of gracie jiu-jitsu being so he
organized and I’m a noogie fighter so

177
[00:12:02],649 –> [00:12:04],899
it’s kind of a dark horse

178
[00:12:04],899 –> [00:12:09],10
it’s kinda benefit so that’s why i
thought it would be perfect for the name

179
[00:12:09],10 –> [00:12:10],270
of my new five-year line

180
[00:12:10],270 –> [00:12:14],949
how did you overcome the the injuries in
jujitsu damn it is just a time to heal

181
[00:12:14],949 –> [00:12:19],269
up but when I was my broke my arm i was
at the gym working on my legs when I

182
[00:12:19],269 –> [00:12:22],779
couldn’t run anymore because my hip I
was working on my upper body you know

183
[00:12:22],779 –> [00:12:25],200
p90x in the basement

184
[00:12:25],200 –> [00:12:28],620
you know if I can do pull-ups we’re
doing assisted pullups until my back is

185
[00:12:28],620 –> [00:12:33],000
stronger second time up to 5 pull-ups
like that’s really cool for a girl you

186
[00:12:33],000 –> [00:12:36],450
know it’s just making myself stronger
where I i if I’m injured on one part of

187
[00:12:36],450 –> [00:12:39],600
my body is just making myself stronger
another parts when I do get back to the

188
[00:12:39],600 –> [00:12:42],990
mat I’m not weaker i’m actually stronger
from my injury

189
[00:12:43],560 –> [00:12:49],589
well I know you mentioned wanting your
jujitsu to be a full-time thing for you

190
[00:12:49],590 –> [00:12:53],460
yeah what other parts of your dreams
have not quite worked out the way you

191
[00:12:53],460 –> [00:12:57],270
wanted man i think when i was 17 I
wanted to be a professional whitewater

192
[00:12:57],270 –> [00:13:01],470
rafters that didn’t work out during the
Navy had kids

193
[00:13:02],40 –> [00:13:07],800
no honestly that when i get fixated on
something it’s it’s high i don’t give up

194
[00:13:07],800 –> [00:13:11],699
i mean i don’t think i’ll be the next
ronda rousey but it doesn’t mean I can’t

195
[00:13:11],700 –> [00:13:16],410
go to Abu Dhabi trials it doesn’t mean
that I can’t just be somebody that all

196
[00:13:16],410 –> [00:13:19],980
that black belt mega never like I want
to make a name for myself and I’m not

197
[00:13:19],980 –> [00:13:22],890
ever gonna give up on that dream ever

198
[00:13:22],890 –> [00:13:27],510
so that’s where I’m at with that huh so
if you were stranded on a deserted

199
[00:13:27],510 –> [00:13:29],100
island with your family

200
[00:13:29],100 –> [00:13:32],190
what are three things you couldn’t live
without and we’d probably kill each

201
[00:13:32],190 –> [00:13:34],140
other

202
[00:13:34],140 –> [00:13:39],990
oh gosh I don’t know i mean like that i
mean if you’re going to be I’m I’m kind

203
[00:13:39],990 –> [00:13:43],920
of a an organizer like I would have to
be organized so if i knew i wasn’t be

204
[00:13:43],920 –> [00:13:47],760
deserted island i would have water i
would have matches and I have sunblock

205
[00:13:47],760 –> [00:13:53],130
yeah but not knowing gosh probably my
cell phone because I like to play games

206
[00:13:53],130 –> [00:13:58],650
on my cellphone and watch videos in
jiu-jitsu videos that we would be really

207
[00:13:58],650 –> [00:14:02],220
boarded gosh i was deserted on a desert
island i would have to make sure that

208
[00:14:02],220 –> [00:14:04],680
had something to do for my children
because they would put we probably just

209
[00:14:04],680 –> [00:14:05],609
kill each other

210
[00:14:05],610 –> [00:14:11],70
there there were such active people that
not being able to do something just gets

211
[00:14:11],70 –> [00:14:15],000
to us ask me next time you have me on
i’ll probably better answer for that but

212
[00:14:15],000 –> [00:14:20],310
I i don’t know i never once I mean one
thing the cell phone thing a lot of

213
[00:14:20],310 –> [00:14:24],869
people have said ya phone so it’s not
not muhammad and yes sir

214
[00:14:24],870 –> [00:14:29],520
yeah but you know I yeah cell phone
because yeah that is a hard question so

215
[00:14:29],520 –> [00:14:31],480
I’ll to go with cellphones kind of
generic

216
[00:14:31],480 –> [00:14:34],329
don’t like to do generic but I’ll think
about it you’ll have a better answer for

217
[00:14:34],329 –> [00:14:39],638
