To be honest, I love what I do. I have some great clients that are taking control of their health and seeing marked improvements to a variety of the facets of their physical fitness.
When I was asked during one of my first sessions with my coach where I saw myself in 5 years, I had to pause. The thing I dislike the most about the current state of DK FitSolutions is the constant hustle for new clients. Just when I’m starting to get ahead a little bit with appointment volume, I lose a client for one reason or another. Or I have a week with multiple cancellations that takes the week from the black to the red. In 5 years, I hope to still be working with a handful of regular clients, but I don’t want to have to rely on my clients to keep the roof over my head and the air conditioner running.
As we worked through this revelation, we talked about different ways to generate income in addition to my personal training sessions. My first thought was increasing traffic to the blog, and hoping to be able to generate some ad income. My coach suggested having a product available for sale online, which can theoretically generate income 24 hours a day. The last thing he mentioned was creating a podcast, which was actually something he was just starting to dabble with.
Better Health 101
Within a few weeks, the shape for the podcast had been formed in my mind. I wanted to create a show for people that want to take control of their health, whether they are starting from scratch or have been exercising for years. I wanted to talk about current events, and especially current health/fitness news items, in a way that anyone can understand without the use of a medical dictionary. And I wanted to create a show that would encourage, motivate, and inspire my listeners as they begin/continue on the path for better health.
While my show is far from perfect yet, it’s going strong.
Instead of waiting for everything to be perfect, I just jumped into the deep end and I’m learning to swim as I go. My first show was pretty bad, but it set the bar low and every episode since has been better.
I would love it if you guys would take a few minutes to check out my show and let me know what you think.
I’m on both iTunes and Stitcher Radio, simply search for Better Health 101 and my show will come up. You can listen to a show or two, or better yet, hit the subscribe button and every time I release a new show you’ll be alerted.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog on a regular basis. Hopefully, you’ll take a chance on my podcast, and allow me to talk to you a couple of times a week as well.
Y’all have a great week, and check out my podcast.
Look for my newest show on Wednesday morning!
