♥ Study as much as you can on Marketing! Yes, marketing! You are a Personal Trainer but you may also be self-employed so understand how to market and promote yourself professionally.
♥ My golden rule is….do something every day to bring in business, whether that is a few text messages or emails being sent out. Running a new advert, writing a blog, etc whatever it is do something positive every day to bring in new business!
♥ Never think I’ve got enough clients now! See above, always look for new business.
♥ Think about how to create a passive income. That’s an income coming in when you go on holiday or sitting at home.
♥ Be prepared to work hard and long hours at the start, maybe for the first 12 – 18 months. There’s no way around it, you have to work hard at the start.
♥ Have various revenue/client generating avenues. I personally have several, not too many that I spread myself to thin but several so I’m not overly reliant on one area.
♥ DO NOT GIVE UP! I can’t tell you the number of times I felt like quitting for at least the first couple of years. I’d gone from having a job with a steady income to an income that I now had to generate! It takes time so stick at it!
♥ Enjoy every day, otherwise what is the point!
