If you’re a personal trainer with a big heart of gold but not enough clients, here’s the 7 Step Success plan to follow when you attend one of my events, like the TT Summit in June, our upcoming Info Summit in November, or FitnessBusinessSummit next March.
This is the exact plan that I gave to one of my beginner Certified Turbulence Trainers as she attempts to quit her day job and get into Personal Training as her full-time job.
Listen, the World needs good people like YOU now more than ever. There is so much negativity and difficulty in every day life and we need positive leaders like you showing people the way to success. I’m proud of you for choosing a noble profession that puts Help & Health over money and materialistic pursuits.
You are a leader. You WILL succeed. In fact, before we get to those 7 secret and surprisingly simple success tips, I want to share this Leadership mantra with you. It’s from Pat Williams, the incredible co-founder of the Orlando Magic and author of 92 (yes, 92!) books:
The 7 Keys of Leadership
- Seven things one must do
- To be a leader right and true
- Have vision that is strong and clear
- Communicate so they can hear
- Have people skills based in love
- And character that’s far above
- The competence to solve and teach
- And boldness that has fearless reach
- A serving heart that stands close by
- To help, assist and edify
A big serving heart of gold. You have it in you. Now it’s time to show you how to take your message, your service, and your value to the world.
When you attend the TT Summit next month, make sure to do this in advance so that you give & get the most out of this special event:
Here’s what I want you to do.
1) Sit down and write out the vision for your family, life, and business. Watch this video for help: www.ANewAmericanDream.com
2) Be clear, concise, and specific.
3) Set 3 short-term (30-day) and 3 long-term (90 day) goals that are process oriented, not just outcome oriented. I learned this powerful distinction from one of our TT Summit Keynote speakers, Alwyn Cosgrove.
a) Process-oriented goals means: I will call 3 prospective local business joint venture companies each week.
b) Outcome-oriented goals means: I will have 10 new clients.
We focus on process goals because those are the things within our control.
4) Make a list of all the trainers you need to connect with at the TT Summit.
5) Make a list of all the questions you have for each of them.
6) Make a note of how you can add value to THEIR lives, too. Maybe you can connect them to someone…maybe you can refer a friend to their online program…maybe you can take them a book they will love…maybe you can take them a Thank You card for a tip that you learned from them in the past. Any little thing will do. It’s the though that counts.
7) Bring the positive energy. Personal trainers want to do business and become friends with high-energy, positive people that they can quickly know, like and trust. To succeed, this has to describe YOU. And I know it does.
Surround yourself with people who are better than you…they will bring out the best in you. Keep letting (positive) people know about your ambitions, and they WILL go out of their way to help you. Trust me. And stay strong.
If you take these steps you will get 100x’s the value of your TT Summit travel investment.
I really appreciate you being there and being part of the TT family.
Stay strong and keep on pushing on.
