In this episode we talk with Ian Weinberg the owner of Ian Fitness. Ian talks about taking his passion for fitness and turning it into a 7-figure business by opening 7 Bootcamp and Personal Training Studios across Seattle. Ian reminds us of the importance of identifying your ideal client and then focusing your business on that person. When he opened Ian Fitness, he wanted to be known for one thing – results – and he focused solely on that purpose with everything he did.

Ian also reminds us that we need to lead with value and put processes in place to help us succeed. While it is good to start out learning to do everything yourself, you also need to trust others and hire the right people to continue to grow. Ian talks about how he took his time to build and let the market direct his expansion instead of trying to grow too fast.
