If you're thinking about starting a sports training business I want you to read this very very carefully.
Everyday I get asked questions by coaches in all sports about how to start a training business specifically within their own sport.
Most coaches want to have freedom and more flexibility within their own schedule and are currently looking to quit their current job and do this full time.
When I first started my business I was also working a 9 to 5 job working for someone, and like many people I hated it!
I hated doing it so much that this drove me to go full time with my own training business and I want to be completely upfront with you... It was hard!
It still is very hard even to this day with so many years of experience.
If you're in a position where you want to start your own business I want to let you know that NO ONE is going to give you the green light to start your business. Many coaches will send me messages saying asking me when...
Today I want to focus on a question from a coach called Brian who is a Baseball trainer.
Here is Brian's question:
"Hey Ben.. I've been working six to eight hours per day on my business and I feel like I can't get ahead what should I do? I've considered just quitting"..
When I consult with coaches on a daily basis the first thing I look for is how that coach spends their time.
Most coaches will say that they spend 30-45 hours a week on their business. But, the truth is you don't need to spend that much time if you're working smart.
A problem I see with many coaches is they don't work smarter, they only work harder and each and every day you spend on your business this time should be focused on pushing the needle forward in order to drive more sales your way.
You need to have a daily disciplined plan in place and you need to know what you're doing hour by hour in order to see real progress with your business.
A lot of coaches will say to me...
