The One Thing That Accelerated My Efforts And Got Me From Zero To 7 Figures In Less Than 5 Years



In honor of our 5th anniversary of the Fitness Leader Institute, I wanted to dedicate this episode to sharing my story through business and talk about the steps along the way that were the biggest turning points and learning moments for me over the years.

I’m also sharing the one thing that accelerated my efforts and got me from zero to 7 figures in less than 5 years to help explain what it’s really going to take to get your business to the 6 or 7 figure mark.

While there are a ton of books and courses out there about business, it can be confusing what you need to invest in and implement to grow your business.

Today, I’m going to tell you what actually works and break down some of the confusion to help save you time and heartache

Are you ready for that ONE thing that accelerated my efforts to the 7 figure mark? 


The biggest increases in my business came when I invested in myself and got personal help through mentoring.

There are a ton of coaches out there selling offers to help business owners. However, there’s a big difference between coaching and mentoring.

Coaching is when someone with expertise helps you do it. Mentoring is when someone who’s already achieved your goal helps you do the same.

Mentoring is truly the best option because they’ve also done what you’ve done and they have that extra nuance of understanding.

If you’ve gone through your own health or business transformation, you can mentor someone, not JUST coach them.

A huge turning point for me on my business journey is when I got clarity and created the Fitness Leader Institute and had someone mentor me on how to grow this business.

Now, I look for mentors in every area of the business, such as operations and marketing.

The bottom line is, if you want to get to the next level the fastest, you want to find a mentor who can give you the personal insights on your own situation.

I have 3 suggestions for you to help you make these decisions when looking for a mentor:

Look at cost in terms of value.

Get realistic about your business and invest in yourself.

Value your time.

You are the key component to making your business work, so you need to invest in yourself, believe in yourself, and go after what you want.

You can be successful if you stick with Beachbody, so pick your path, stick to it, get yourself a mentor, and go crush it, coaches!
