Here’s where I left off with ‘Part 2’ of the Dave Gleason chronicle:
"More on the training and business side in a bit, though, for now, I want to explain what Athletic Revolution has done for me, my life and my career…"
Now, here’s where we pick it up for ‘Part 3’:
I Have the Opportunity to Effect a Generation and Build Wealth and Financial Stability in the Process
The Fitness & Sport Training industry is very young.
And not unlike any other industry’s growing pains, the evidence of our ‘youth’ can be seen everywhere.
We spend hours creating, designing and implementing training programs for our clients and have next to no time left for business systems generation or management.
We cram in things like marketing, press releasing, advertising and networking whenever we have a free moment (assuming we know how to do any of those things properly at all).
If we get sick or (gasp) want to take a day or week off… We don’t get paid. And man, can that hurt.
We remain at the mercy of our clients who can freely opt to be without our services at any time and entirely alter our monthly revenues and lifestyle budget with one ‘cancel’ phone call.
We wake up early, work all hours and cater to the whims of whenever our services are wanted for fear of leaving any scrap of money on the table.
We exist in the double-edged-sword world of wishing to grow and expanding our profits, but knowing if we do, we risk spreading ourselves even more thinly.
It’s a precarious balancing act that sounds alluring at first (the prospects of making $75 an hour), but reality can set in awfully quick…
