Are you, like me, trying to build a fitness business that will give you the lifestyle and the income that you desire? I talk about one thing a lot, and that is if you are a qualified Fitness Professional in the Health & Fitness industry, you have so many opportunities to create an amazing business…. a business that you enjoy giving 100%, a business that can give you the ability to work your own chosen hours, and a business that will give you a really good income.
Do you have this model of a business? I hope so, but if you don’t YET then lets look at WHY?
Working as a self employed individual is currently a very popular chosen path for many individuals, more so now than ever. I have managed to sustain a self-employed business since 2003, and I know many more individuals who have a successful business that they have built on their own accord.
But, how do you get this business that is so easily talked about and glorified? Is it possible? And how do you make sure you seize the right opportunity??
This article is written due to an opportunity arising within my own business, will it work? I think so, but you won’t know until you try it….
Do I have freely accessible funds to invest into this new opportunity? No, should that stop me? No (The plan for the new venture shows it can be profitable – so borrowing to invest will be justified)….
Am I excited about this opportunity? Immensely…. Am I scared by it?? Massively!!!
I am telling you this because I feel it is important to share that there are a lot of us that are all going through the same journey, and that there are some good strategies that you can put in place to make sure you make the most of an opportunity when it is given to you.
Now as with any business idea that you may have, or opportunity that presents itself to you, it is very easy to scare yourself out of the idea in the first instance before you already try…. Or you can sometimes try it and not put the relevant systems in place to make it succeed, fail and then feel like the universe is conspiring against you.
Do you have a Business Plan…?
Make sure you are certain of everything business related that is required to make a success of it. How much money do you need? What are your cash flow projections of your potential earnings,?
It is also important to have the correct systems in place for marketing (wholly important) – website, social media platforms (these should be in place first, not done whilst you are trying to build your business).
We see too many individuals that have the basis for a great business, but they do not put the above in place, and then unfortunately if this is not done, a large percentage of potentially great businesses fail. Put everything in place first.
Do you want your business to succeed?
Obviously if you want it to be the success you are after, you need to give it time, money, effort and (importantly) consistent advertising and marketing.
So… many of you who are reading this have given yourself the opportunity to establish a great and profitable business by giving yourself the qualifications needed to build a business in the fitness industry… if you have then answer me these questions?
Have you put in place (hopefully at the very start) a business plan? Do you have a website (if yes add a link to it below) and do you have your Social Media platforms in place with content added?
There are a lot of individuals who have a great opportunity to create a business that gives them the income and lifestyle that is desired, it just needs to be actioned.
I am currently in the process of adding some exciting additions to my own business, it will be great to hear about your progress as I go through mine.
