This podcast is a bit different because rather than interviewing a guest, I’m sharing an interview of me. Specifically, I recorded a webinar for students at Oxford Brookes University in the UK, in which I shared business advice for students who wish to start a health or fitness business or for fitness professionals who wish to grow their existing business.
I was interviewed by professor Paul Hough, a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Science at the university. Not only is he a fellow author, but he’s worked with elite-level athletes in tennis and Formula One, and published several studies in academic journals.
In our discussion, we chat about . . .
- Writing books (and why you need to enjoy it if you’re going to do it)
- How to use content marketing to help people
- The time management structure I use for projects and my daily schedule
- My system for taking notes on what I read
- How I deal with procrastination
- My favorite part of being an entrepreneur
- Marketing, “micro yeses,” and how to price your goods and services
- And more . . .
So, if you have your own health and fitness business or are interested in starting one, or you’re just curious to hear a bit of my story and about the business side of my work, you’re going to enjoy this podcast!
