1. Hire help sooner. 

Why I didn't:

-I truly was not making enough money
-I didn't know enough about the difference between profit, revenue, and my paycheck
-I thought it "meant I was successful" because I had to work all of the time, so I didn't see it as a problem. I thought that meant I was "doing it right."


2. Carve out times for small group classes ASAP

Why I didn't:

I kinda did do this right away, but still- I wish I had done it sooner. It took me a couple years to get it right, and the longer I waited, the tricker it became to move 1:1 client sessions around to accommodate for the small group. This ultimately became the foundation upon which I would build my gym, but we'll cover that in a future episode.


I mention the book "Profit First" by Mike Michalowicz. If you're working on gaining a better understanding of your business financials, this can be a great place to start. However, I personally feel the book could have been a PDF, and for the personal trainer, it makes things slightly more complicated than they need to be. It can still be a really good place to start!
