I just love flying cuz that’s when I catch up on my reading. Last week on the way to Dan Kennedy’s event  I was reading Brendon Burchard’s excellent book titled  “The Millionaire Messenger”. By the way it gets my highest recommendation. All of a sudden I looked up and saw Joe Polish and his staff sitting right next to me.  Side Note:  Joe’s staff consists of two very beautiful ladies. Joe I’m not mad at you at ALL) I had a pleasure of meeting Joe last year at Bedros’s FBS and I can tell you that he is an absolutely brilliant marketer and he is SUPER down to earth. Joe is a  consultant to the the best entrepreneurs in the world including Bill Phillips, Richard Branson, and many many more. Joe saw that I was reading Brendon Burchard’s book and he casually mentioned that Brendon is also a member of his elite 25K mastermind group. Before I go any further I will tell you that Brendon Burchard is also a very successful, brilliant and a top notch entrepreneur himself. However, a few days before the flight I got a very mediocre direct mail piece from Brendon and I couldn’t resist […]

This is a blog post by my main man Craig “Bad Boy” Kastings. I stopped in his gym in Chi-Town a few days ago and I got to tell you this guy is RIPPED. Craig is the kind of guy who knows how to have fun BUT also knows when it’s time to get down to business. Hmmmmm no wonder I like this guy. In the below video I reveal his secrets on how he stays in such a great shape. I also make a HUGE excuse for myself and why I am not in such a great shape these days. Don’t worry CK you inspired me and I am going to start hitting it hard again. [youtube l7EwmB89d-8] OK enough goofing around, CK take it away from here….. Hey , Craig here and I have been thinking about what I can contribute to this awesome blog since the changeover. Before I say anything else, I want to thank my good friend – coach – mentor – & business partner Sam Bakhtiar for bring me aboard this bad ass group of advisors! I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with all of you for a long, long time! […]

Lessons learned in the trenches… This is a guest blog post by my boy Jeff “The Sherminator” Sherman. Jeff is one brilliant trainer, entrepreneur and an overall super cool human being. Jeff’s business is totally on autopilot and he is the master at systems. His daughter Emily  is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE. (couldn’t find a picture but as soon as I do I will post it) Without further ado here is Jeff. I started my first fitness business in 2001. I left the big chain gym to venture out on my own. I was the top personal  trainer at that fitness center. I thought that since it was so easy for me to get clients at that gym that it would be the  same, even if I had my own place. So why should I make all these sales and have the fitness center benefit from it. What I soon realized after being on my own for a few months that it wasn’t about sales. It didn’t matter how good of a sales person you are if you don’t have anyone to sell to. And on top of that I didn’t realize how much went into owning your own business. I mean […]

Hey all you SUPER TRAINERS. I am still in Chi-Town and it’s the last day of Dan Kennedy’s SUPER CONFERENCE. I have learned so much over the weekend and can’t wait to share them with you. Before I let my boy Christian Aguirre show you some of his Ninja and I do mean Ninja marketing tactics that he uses to HAVE A WAITING LIST OF CLIENTS let me tell you about my CRAZY night last night. Last night my boys Dustin “The Dominator” Martarano, Neil “The Traffic Generator” Vankertram and Nitin “The Cab Driver” Chhoda decided to take me out for my Bday. Well let’s just say that Chi-Town goes OFF the HOOK. Now I am not much of a drinker but I love a good party. But somehow I ended up doing something like 8 shots of Patron (last I remember). Why would I do that many shots of Patron? I’m sure it had nothing to do with the cute and super cool shot girl could it. NAAAAAAAA I think we got a picture with her on Dustin’s phone but he is still hungover ;)  will send over if recovered Good looking shot girls are a dime a dozen […]
