There I was, burnt out, exhausted, and avoiding about a million things that needed my attention.
My business was falling apart, and I couldn’t ignore it anymore.
Something HAD to change.
I was having an amazing run with my first boot camp location, so I decided to open a second…
In my mind, a second location would help even more people and give me more revenue, more freedom, and more fun…
But that’s NOT what happened.
In fact, within days after opening my second location, I realized I needed TWO of me to tackle my monster of a to-do list.
Things were slipping through the cracks — including my personal life and sanity.
So I rushed to hire a new trainer.
Within 6 months of opening our second location, she walked out the door with 90% of my clients and started her own camp.
I was emotionally wrecked. I felt betrayed and was completely exhausted.
I almost quit.
But after a few days of having a pity party for myself, I picked myself back up.
I knew my program was changing lives…
And I decided my vision was TOO big to let something like this get in the way.
Long story short?
I refocused my attention back on my first location and had to go back and figured out WHAT I did wrong.
So I started learning about systems, KPIs, and leadership.
I kept putting one foot in front of the other.
I hired coaches, took courses, and SHOWED UP even though for a while, all I wanted to do was curl into a ball and stay in bed.
But instead of throwing in the towel, I went on to open THREE more locations.
And because of what I went through and what I had learned from it, my entire business ran like a well-oiled machine.
Would I have loved for that second location to have worked out? Ummm… absolutely.
But I’m grateful it didn’t.
I ended up learning SO much more.
So if you’re going through something right now that feels like a major setback — keep going.
It’s all part of your success story 🙂
Make it an amazing day,
