5 Core Disciplines Of Success (part 1)

Most fitness professionals and business owner’s start out with a vague awareness that there’s a lot more to building a business than they initially thought.

But without names for what needs to be done (and an understanding of the environment they’re now operating in), they end up feeling lost, confused, and overwhelmed.

Names give you power.

They increase your comprehension and allow you to accelerate breakthroughs in cloudy thinking so you can focus on specific, necessary actions required to achieve your goals.
