The Only Way You’ll Ever be Free

by Mark Fisher

Today is an exciting day, as I’m heading to Perform Better in Orlando. It’s one of my favorite events, and it feels so good to be back in person for the first time in two years. 

 I’m giving a talk that covers the 10 Ways To Grow Your Training Business in 2022. If you happen to be there, I think you’ll get a lot out of it. Let me know if you’ll be in Orlando, would love to say hi!

 Now, I know today’s subject line sounds dramatic AF, but stick with me here.

 I mean that sincerely.

 The only way you’ll ever have personal freedom in your training gym is by developing at least one other person on your team to have some leadership responsibility. 

 This role could be a General Manager, a Fitness Director, a Director of Operations, or any number of titles.

 I like to call this position(s) your “Sous Chef”. 

 Ultimately, the buck will always stop with you. But this individual or set of individuals are able to hold down the fort when you’re out of town and take total ownership over certain parts of the business. 

 As it happens… I filmed some YouTube videos on this very topic!



 NOTE: If you don’t love videos, worry not, this Thursday email will usually be written words. But since these videos cover an important topic, I wanted to be sure to share my thoughts with you.
