It’s not everyday I hand out free advice. But the lack of social media knowledge in the digital space is driving me crazy.
So as usual, I’m getting raw and real on how my wife, my team, and I help our clients build 6- and 7-figure businesses by leaning heavily on social.
Nailing a plan of action that gets your business out there — frequently mingling with the public — can feel more like a stomach bug rather than excitement-induced butterflies.
But to keep your online business buzzing, you have to maintain a strong and consistent presence on social media.
As a business owner you need to stop consuming social media and start producing it and using it.
So how do you get the ‘likes’ rolling in?
To caption this: it can be overwhelming to know where to start.
But I’ve got some good news for you, so grab a pen while you get those social apps downloading.
As experts in the digital...
Hear me out…
I know you’re eager to arrive at your destination – the sanctuary of your thriving online business and the freedom lifestyle you always hear me preaching about.
But if you toss the map and hop in the fast lane, you might do yourself more harm than good.
Sure, I’ve shared some secrets, shortcuts, and tricks in the past, but there’s one key ingredient that hasn’t gotten much love because, frankly, it ain’t too sexy.
The one secret everybody ought to know about building an online business is to harness the power of delayed gratification.
I get it — not what you wanted to hear. Boring, V…
But when you transform your mindset from immediate results to “delayed gratification,” you’re making a seismic shift in your strategy that will pay huge dividends down the road.
Delayed gratification is a hush-hush industry secret that separates the strong from the weak, the lazy...
Sexy? No. Necessary? Absolutely.
I know what you’re thinking: I want new leads, V.
Listen, leads are important, but retention is the freakin’ lifeblood of your business.
No, it’s not sexy, new, or cutting-edge. But the ridiculously simple nuggets shared below can exponentially increase your retention. Imagine the impact that will have on your bottom line.
Do yourself a favor. Keep scrolling to stop losing members (and money) and start maximizing your member retention…
Personal trainer-turned-retention extraordinaire and founder of Gymotion, Alex Armstrong, already has an impressive following of gym owners and fitnesspreneurs like you thanks to his simple and effective approach to retention.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that your life can change when you start scaling and automating your business.
How do I know?
Because not only have I seen it happen in all my mentors lives, but also my life changed once I started scaling my business.
I used to be like many fitness business owners and coaches out there. I showed up for clients and hoped that I could log enough hours in a week to make a decent living. My business ran great when I was there, but if I wasn’t there it didn’t run the same.
Running my business this way, though, left me at the mercy of many things that could have gone wrong. Things like I could have gotten sick or a client could have cancelled on me and that lessened the take home pay for my business or me.
Or, I wasn’t there to answer the phones, conduct the consults, make the sales, and that all left the business not running like a well oiled machine. That hurt my earning potential as a small business owner at the time. Then...
If you’re not evolving to, thinking through, moving around, over and under these realities, I’m willing to say, you might not be here in 5 years.
The financial struggle that is already straining the fitness industry has a lot of you burnt out, getting out, or suffering through their career. It ruins relationships, leads to divorce and estranged, or the very least upset kids on a consistent basis.
I believe in a fitness industry WITHOUT financial struggle.
But, the only way to do that is to educate fit pros that training on the floor is not the only way to earn a living, nor is it the only way too get people results. Opening studios and boot camps are not the only way to be a business owner or entrepreneur.
The current way trainers are educated about business and marketing is the issue. It’s slowly changing and improving, but it still needs to progress and move faster.
Your attention needs to be that where you seek and fall in love with the skills of marketing...
This is a series of notes from a $60,000 a year mastermind I'm in with Brendon Burchard. This is cutting edge stuff that you'll definitely want to pay attention to!
Ready? Let's roll with the notes...
1) Best Time to Reinvent Is Oct-Dec. (after that, if u waited to Spring it’s too late, you missed early year swing.)
2) Where do you need to let go of some stuff.
3) Category Ownership:
3.1) If you’re going to build an empire, you have to ask what category am I going to own.
3.2) Category Ownership Initiatives
Be the curator of the category and you become the linchpin and own that category.
For you to own a category it doesn’t need to be you, it can be case studies, research and curation.
4) Hobbyists ask “can I do this?” “Can I try this?”
4.1) They dabble and kick tires. They play small.
4.2) If we look at it are you playing small?
4.3) Are you looking at ur past vs. the level of service you can provide.
4.4) Some of you...

What’s the most successful diet?
Is it Paleo? Ketogenic? Portion Fix? Mediterranean? Atkins? Grapefruit? Hot Dog?
LOL…just checking to see if you’re paying attention.
One of my students told me there is a REAL diet out there based around the Hot Dog Diet. We all need to read this article to prevent more of that going on in the world.
In all seriousness, crap like grapefruit diets, miracle pills, and one size fits all solutions are assailing the consumer, your clients, all the time.
People are so desperate for something to help them, that they will almost believe anything anyone says that promises the quick fix to their problems… especially their trainer.
This is why, more than ever, you need to be a trusted resource people can turn to for help and guidance.
You better know your stuff.
Being up on, and having the know how to talk about sound nutrition practices and behavior change for your clients is a must today in the industry.
That said, what’s...
