So maybe you’ve been thinking about starting your own fitness business. And perhaps you’ve even been kicking around the idea of buying a Broke Body Boot Camp. After all, a Broke Body Boot Camp comes with name-brand recognition.  And it might even some with a little extra help and support as you get your business up and running. That’s probably true. But what Broke Body Boot Camp sellers don’t tell you is that buying a franchise also comes with a lot of headaches. It’s not all sunshine and kittens. And once you really start looking into it, you’ll quickly discover that setting up your own bootcamp business is much better than buying a Broke Body Boot Camp. Indeed, here are five good reasons why it’s better to set up your own bootcamp rather than buying a Broke Body Boot Camp. When you buy a license to run a Broke Body Boot Camp, you may pay five figures or even six figures just for the license and initial set-up fees.  Depending on how the franchise is set up, you may then have to purchase a building and equipment on top of your licensing fees.  What’s more, you’re going to have to pay […]

Hey. What’s going on, Super Trainers? It’s your boy Seven-Figure Sam and today I want to share with you a card that I got in the mail.
Now check this out. It’s from Mrs. Duivis. I’m not even going to try to pronounce that first name. So it’s from Mrs. Duivis and I don’t know a Mrs. Duivis. I know a Michael Duivis. He’s a good friend of mine and a coaching client. So I don’t know what this could be. So when I open it, it said thanks.
So let me read it to you and show you what it says. “Dear Sam, my name is Mrs. Duivis. I’m writing you this note to give you my sincere thanks and appreciation for getting Michael to where he is today. Your coaching has done wonders and I’m very grateful for that. Michael is doing really good and thanks to you. Thanks to you his business has not been hurt because of this. Again, thank you so much and all the best to you and your family.”

Guest Blog from Shawn Philips Lawn darts, beach volleyball and umbrella drinks. It’s how the new entrepreneurial class roll in the bank, thanks to the “less work, more success revolution” inspired by the likes of The Four-Hour Work Week. Gone, the days of long hours, hard work and slaving over the details. Yes! The best and brightest have discovered the leverage of other people—those people we call “contractors” who seem happy do the work. Right? Contractors. Wonderful contractors. On paper they seem most amazing. Like Dudley Moore’s Arthur says, “Waiters… Aren’t they wonderful? You ask them for things and they bring them. Same principle as Santa Claus.” Ideally, that’s how your contractors work, right? You ask them for things and they bring them. But in the real world often you ask for things and they deliver other things, or nothing you asked for at all, but always they deliver a bill. You see, in my experience, contractors come with a built in design flaw which puts them immediately in conflict with you—and anyone who gets paid on results. As you understand better than most people on earth, there’s only one thing that pays—results. When you deliver, you get paid. When […]

Hey Super-trainers, here is nice blog post by Greg Justice… While people tend to pair the words leadership and management together, they are two very separate concepts that compliment one another. It is important to understand the meaning of each word so that they can be used in tandem to create an individual who is able to be an effective leader as well as a good manager. By fusing these two very different aspects into one effective strategy, a person will be able to get more out a group of people than if they simply focused on being just a leader or manager. A leader is a person who is capable of seeing a vision and carrying a group of people toward a common goal. Leaders focus on the people in the group and work and ensure that everyone is motivated and determined. People who are leaders take the time to motivate their team and strive to keep everyone involved in a positive mood. While a manager is more focused on rules and regulations that have already been established, a leader will challenge them if they are not a good fit for the individuals involved. A person who is a […]
