1. Educate yourself on how to reach people so you can get your programs in the hands of those who need them.

2. Be willing to fail because that is how you get better and achieve success.

3. The give a shit factor – there are going to be haters so you just need to focus on the things and people that matter!

In this episode we talk with Shawna Kaminski of about the business side of fitness. Shawna tells us that it is about more than having a great product. That in order to get your great product out there, you’ve got to learn to sell. And that you can’t shy away from the SALES part of the business. She even talks about the importance of finding a mentor so that you can learn how to sell and grow your business.

Shawna reminds us that we also have to focus on the people and things that matter – on the people that we are trying to help. There will be haters and failures, but we’ve got to stay focused on what matters if we want to succeed!
