Erase Fear With Gratitude

Erase Fear With Gratitude

A BIG PART OF FINANCIAL FREEDOM IS HAVING YOUR HEART AND MIND FREE FROM WORRY ABOUT THE WHAT-IFS OF LIFE. – SUZE ORMAN Over the last year, I’ve cut up credit cards and closed bank accounts. Why? Because they were clearly trying to nickel-and-dime me. I’m pretty good about paying my bills ahead of time to avoid surcharges, yet there they were, on my bill, in black and white. Suddenly my bank was charging added fees for paper statements, savings balances under $1,000 and for checking my balance. I started to feel paranoid. Why was everyone trying to screw with me? Even at the grocery store, airheaded clerks would just forget to give me my change. When I was getting an oil change, the clerk accidentally overcharged me. I was living my life in fear, suspicious of everyone and everything. Then I realized: that’s no way to live!   I found that my fear and paranoia went beyond just money matters. There was a pervasive negativity that undermined other aspects of my life. Perhaps you find this is true in your life too. Some guy cuts you off and you assume he did it on purpose – to assert his […]

PERSONAL TRAINER MARKETING STRATEGIES: IDEAS THAT WORK!

Here’s a little secret I learned after 20+ years in the industry: the difference between the guy making $30K and the guy making $300K or $3 Million has little to do with talent and everything to do with personal trainer marketing strategies. It’s really shocking when you first realize this truth. It really makes you think: How long have I been working for peanuts when I could have been rolling in the dough?!? Yet, it also feels relieving when you understand that it will only take a few tweaks to your business model to put you in the right direction. You won’t make six-figures overnight, but I’ve seen guys make that transition in as little as three months by taking the steps outlined in my “Six-Figures In 67 Days” manual. It’s a really rewarding experience to see the light bulb go on over people’s heads and see them take control of their lives that way and command the paycheck they’ve earned. Hell, most of my guys are now signing the front of the checks, rather than the back of the checks now! Life is good, my friends. But first: here are some guidelines to discovering the best fitness marketing strategies. […]

10 Things You Can Learn From TV Shopping Networks

10 Things You Can Learn From TV Shopping Networks

TV Shopping networks: we see them advertising all over TV but how often do you really watch the shows? I personally have always thought they were a crock of, well you know what. But one day a certain show caught my attention and my marketing mind starting spinning. I watched the entire show and actually learned something from it. I thought about the audience these shows reach and how I could use these strategies in my fitness business. The home shopping industry is a multi-billion dollar industry so they must be doing something right.   Here is what I learned: Repetition – we must show our product and service to our current customers and potential prospects over and over again. TV networks know that telling consumers about a product once or twice isn’t enough; we need to be told repeatedly so that’s what they do. Think about when you try to remember the lyrics of a song. How do you do it? You listen to the song over and over again so you can hear the words repeatedly. This is how we train our brains to remember, through repetition. The same goes for sales. If you continuously tell your customers […]

Challenges Are Opportunities In Disguise

Challenges Are Opportunities In Disguise

There are two types of people in this Great Recession… those who panicked and those who saw opportunity. Those who panicked are on unemployment insurance, ate up their retirement savings, lost their homes, declared bankruptcy and blamed others for their awful predicament. The news media calls these people “victims of the Recession”. The ambitious victims might have applied for 100 jobs identical to the ones they were fired from. They might have applied for dozens of jobs they were clearly overqualified for just to have something. Yet there are many people who saw the Recession as an opportunity in disguise. They knew they could use the Recession to their advantage and come out on top. For example, when the housing market bottomed out, a lot of real estate agents were out of jobs. Some people gave up. Others redirected their focus to selling foreclosures or started trash-out businesses that revitalized foreclosed homes. Some people focused their niche on first-time homeowners who were looking to cash-in on the federal tax credit. Some people started companies that offered to buy homes for cash from distressed owners who wished to avoid foreclosure. You see where this is going. With every challenge, there is […]
