I dream things that never were and rather than asking: 'Why not?', I start doing it*. I will make it happen, live fully and joyously, aware of all the possibilities life has to offer. I therefore do the things we as an group enjoy doing. Working with pleasure, following our passion and creating space for innovation.

*) "Some men see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream things that never were and ask, 'Why not?'" - Robert F. Kennedy

In my path I have chosen to build the next big thing as well! Our 'Second To None' brand and privately held European marketplace: YouAre (.ORG and .EU will follow), will also help out every ambassador (sportsmen) that helps us to promote our business- and to reach goals together.

Please NOTE: Ambassadors receive a full cross- and multi-media package for FREE, including our support without any additional COST on all matters ONLINE. Their goal: donations, sponsoring and crowdfunding** together with an strong online presence combined with social media. ...Something we developed the past years by standardized, categorized and normalized ONLINE solutions to be launched within just a few hours these days.

To achieve greater levels of fairness and equity for all, I already released the first draft of topathletes.COM; like topsporter.nl and jongtalenten.nl in the Netherlands e.g.

From another perspective our ExportZ (USA/.COM) business together with amongst others USPS.nl (.EU) logistics provides a new focus for retail organizations across oceans to become more profitable and competitive. Our collaboration promotes also fresh views to manufacturers, suppliers, our dealers and customers being true ambassadors as well!

To bring about a bigger and better change in the world in giving our ambassadors what they need in order to succeed together!

Just because together we will make sure to live our dreams rather than to dream our lives!

To unlock that ability to be truly human as well and in order to welcome their community to be ours, we also choose that so called Omni-Channel Logistics and the Marketing mix together with sportsmen (-women; and young-talents) is one that will change everyone’s views as well! Just like Mark Zuckerberg believes that one day we'll be able to directly share emotions, thoughts, and sensory feedback with each other, just as we currently share text, photos, and videos through social networks. "You'll be able to think of something and your friends will immediately be able to experience it too". ...Just like we like our community to experience the same!

Like the true method of knowledge is experiment today we keep on making the necessary investments while I really like to know what makes you smile?

Kind and best regards, P.J. Bresser, (Call name Patrick) - ExportZpeed.COM and YouAre (ORG/EU/NL) owner, ‘founders’ of USPS (EU/NL), topathletes.com, topsportster.nl, jongtalenten.nl, skater.nl and many others just like them!

 

**) The concept of crowdfunding has been largely concerned with the raising of funds by companies so that they may more easily develop and market new products and services.  Sports platform Top Athletes wants to flip the script on the traditional crowdfunding model and allow individuals to fund individuals as opposed to companies.  Specifically, TopAthletes is interested in allowing people to fund their favorite athletes.  It aims to accomplish its goals through a new accessory on its existing editorial and social platform that will easily allow athletes to raise money for entering tournaments, buying new gear, covering training expenses and any other item related to an athlete’s custom campaign.  More established current and former athletes, including ... Dian Nissen (a member of the TopAthletes Board of Directors), plan to use the newly introduced crowdfunding capacity to raise money for charitable efforts.

Top Athletes crowdfunding initiative is essentially a Kickstarter for athletes in all walks of life, from those turning pro and needing monetary assistance to others who have established a level of financial security and seek to enhance their philanthropic efforts.  It begs the question, if Kickstarter already exists as a respected platform for raising money in a variety of circumstances, why is there also a need for a new sports-specific crowdfunding platform?

“If you look at something like Kickstarter, they handle the concept of crowdfunding.  Twitter handles short messages to people.  We provide a premium and "Second To None" solution for athletes that focuses on monetization opportunities,” said Topathletes CTO Patrick Bresser.  ”As one of those opportunities, we have crowdfunding.  For the athletes that don’t have large socialgraphs, we are creating opportunities through crowdfunding.”

Patrick’s approach appears to be more focused on the fledgling athlete who can use the support of the crowd as he or she goes from being an amateur to a professional in his or her respective sport.  If athletes are able to effectively pitch potential donors, it could serve as strong assistance to amateur golfers, U.S.-based soccer players, Mixed Martial Arts fighters and many other athletes in sports and leagues that do not guarantee a great source of income for all participants.

“There are technical features within TopAthletes solutions that are more expansive than the limitations Kickstarter provides, mostly from a social sharing and social networking perspective,” added TopAthletes CEO Patric Bresser.  ”Kickstarter is a website, not a marketing platform.  Kickstarter handles the processing, payments and execution, but you have to go to other platforms to market.  We have it all built into one place: Your personal website and -shop.”

TopAthletes was built by Patrick Bresser and his team as a destination where fans may more closely connect with their favorite athletes while also providing new opportunities for athletes to supplement their income by way of connecting them with major marketers looking for a direct connection to the consumer.  The three-year-old company now delivers editorial and social content from over many more professional athletes to come, with a roster that seems to grow by the day.

Patrick explained that athletes will be creating content specifically around the campaigns they kick-off on the TopAthletes crowdfunding system.   “There will be a synergy there with a long-term goal for us — original content that only exists on our platform,” Patrick said.  ”We are going to encourage athletes who engage in crowdfunding to give better access to fans.  I can envision many athletes who have not yet made it to the big leagues, don’t have big contracts, definitely wanting to be a part of this Funding tool.”

Athletes on TopAthletes have already begun the process of setting up their charities and causes on the new crowdfunding platform and their own personal website and -shop.

“This is a great opportunity for athletes to take their passion projects to the next level and raise money to compete,” said Patrick. ”The team at TopAthletes got me set up quickly and easily, and I’m looking forward to a successful campaign raising money for my charity.”, according to many of it's users
