The Number 1 Thing to Differentiate Yourself

I had a call with a fitness entrepreneur who was worries that they should not move forward with their goals because “what if there are too many others doing it?”

I asked them if they believed that I should never have become a photographer because I was worried that there were too many other photographers.

Obvious what their answer was.

So many great ideas and passionate individuals never move forward because we are afraid that there might be too many others doing it, that we don’t have the right to do it, that we should be criticized for doing it.

But the number 1 thing that separates and differentiates people is actually doing it. You would be amaze how many people never take that step that you are going to take.

Actually doing it, sending it out the door, hitting published – that is the main thing that will differentiate you from others.

In the spirit of taking action, I hope to see you take action by attending FITposium and learning for the 40 best experts on how to level up your career in fitness. Get more clients, make more money and increase your impact!

Are You In The Top 1% of the Fitness Industry? You Could Be…

There is forecasted to be more than 330,000 personal training jobs by 2026. However the average personal trainer makes just more than $50,000 per year. Less than 10% make more than $80,000 annually. But what if you want to make six figures?

Cracking that six figure mark, making multiple six figures and even breaking into the 7-figure range requires that you be in the Top 1% of the Fitness Industry.

Why are more people not more doing this? Because they are not leveraging the best practices in the industry and making the right connections to level up their brands.

Why Many Entrepreneurs Fail and What You Can Do About It

The biggest mistake most fitness talents and entrepreneurs make in their career, is they act passively and reactively in their marketing efforts.

What is passive and reactive marketing? Passive marketing is setting up a website and assuming people will find it and content them. They get on stage for a competition to get their pro card and assume sponsorship deals and magazine opportunities will come flooding in. They get on the cover of a magazine and assume that they will then be able to make substantial money because their phone won’t stop ringing with more opportunities. They post on Instagram and assume that is enough to get true fans.

Listen, we have all done it. But true success does not come from passive or reactive marketing. It comes from proactive marketing efforts. It comes from taking risks. It comes from standing up to be seen.

FITposium is your chance to be seen. It is your chance to meet with top editors face-to-face to share your story. It is your chance to learn from more than 30 leading experts in the fitness industry on how to establish, market and profit from your brand in fitness.

What could possibly hold you back at this point? Space is limited so register today at FITposium.com
