My headspace at the time, workwise, I was burned out even though I only worked part time. I had given everything I had to people who should have been seeing a therapist instead of me!
I believed and still do, that I was great at my job
The customers were fantastic, my staff and co-workers were wonderful, supportive and caring. However, the people I worked for were a different kettle of fish. I could no longer in good conscience be a middle manager under people who had little or no moral or ethical standards. Let’s just say it is heart breaking to watch people who work hard and give their all, being broken down on a daily basis.
So here I am a newbie coach
I know that I still have a lot to learn and also how fast I want to move forward, making up for lost time. I know that I am at the beginning of a stellar journey and am enjoying every second of it.
So far my most successful marketing strategy has been cold calling and following up on my calls. Two months after my intake, I am now working as a coach alongside a very large gym in my area. My flyers are in all their new membership packs and I am the coach for a 12 week challenge they are running as part of a national campaign. I also have the go ahead to work on some seminars for their members. All because I had the motivation and drive to make a follow up call. My goal is to become affiliated with as many gyms and independent personal trainers in my area as I can.
