Selling Ethically, Time Piercing, and Reality Hacking w/ Jesse Elder| #008

EThere’s a lot of obstacles that get in the way of reaching your goals and creating the life and fitness business you desire. But you know as soon as you get enough money, time, education, energy, (insert other scarce resource), or make the right connection, you’ll be well on your way to attaining that perfect lifestyle. In the meantime, — while you’re waiting for all the right conditions to fall into place — might as well use the tools currently within grasp, right? Let’s start with the mind and heart. Jesse Elder is a mental blacksmith of sorts. As a 7-figure lifestyle business owner, and sales and life coach, he helps people strategize in the marketing space and weaponize their intuition. Why that approach to success? Because most of what gets in the way is a result of heeding mind over heart. By taking Jesse’s advice and “making logic your bitch,” you forget about being right and drop into what you’re truly capable of doing. That’s the only condition you really need to...

From Employee to Self-Employed FitPro w/ Jaime Nudelman | #007

EYou’re a personal trainer putting in 45+ hours a week at SwoleMates Forever Fit Club. You come home spent. ‘Netflix and chill’ is pretty much just you falling asleep to the home screen, remote in hand. And friends? What friends? BUT. Come payday, you can wipe that sweat right off your forehead with that sweet wad of cash in your pocket! (not recommended). I mean — all that sacrifice and time spent busting your ass pays off in the end, right? Or…Not so much? This is a typical story for a slew of FitPros. When you’re trading in all your time for pennies — because only half that time is lucrative — you can’t help but think about dipping a toe into entrepreneurial waters. PT Jaime Nudelman took the plunge into self-employment and says the water’s warm. After getting fed up with low ROI working for a commercial gym, he shifted into the online coaching world and founded MyExecutiveTrainer.com. Now he helps busy executives, entrepreneurs, and business owners get fit while answeri...

Create a Thriving Lifestyle Fitness Biz w/ Rahz Slaughter & Greg Kalafatic | #006

ERahz and Greg are like Obama and Joe Biden — best friends, multiple studio owners, passionate marketers, and personal growth enthusiasts. Their start is similar to most every FitPro — working as personal trainers for a big box gym. But they started thinking outside that box and partnered up to start their own business. Fast-forward ten years and you’ll find them running a thriving lifestyle fitness biz and teaching others how to do the same. A lot of FitPros are apprehensive about having a business partner…. “What if they don’t pull their weight? Will they screw me over? I don’t usually play nice with others. What if we show up wearing the same outfit?”. All valid concerns. So what’s the secret to having an effective team? You’ve gotta do it Captain Planet style — combine the right elements. In this episode, Rahz Slaughter (coolest. name. ever) and Greg Kalafatic join AJ and Amanda to speak on exactly which elements a business partner should have and the red flags to watc...

Quieting Fears, Using Intuition, and Mastering Your Mindset w/ Cora Poague | #005

EWhen you launch a new product, service or start your own FitPro business, it’s important to give your projects time and space to grow. Easier said than done, right? Waiting for a project to take flight is a nerve-racking experience for any current or aspiring entrepreneur. You’re already anxious so the last thing you want to encounter is resistance. Ad when it does happen, diagnosing the source can be a difficult task. Is it a few entry-level hiccups to work past? Or is it an ego-driven force telling you not to back down so you don’t look or feel bad? Your fear intimidating you into bowing out right before you hit big? Maybe your inner critic is convincing you of a future failure? If you let any of those voices inside your head win, prepare to lose. Cora Poague knows that when you try something new, those voices can get loud. That’s why she helps people quiet the minds, inner critics and fear voices that get in the way of experiencing growth and abundance. In this episode, she s...
