I couldn’t comprehend how someone like me was going to get chosen by my ideal client on the internet. No one liked my posts for months outside of close friends & family.
How would I get someone to listen to a podcast and be excited enough to pay me for coaching?
Even though it felt like I was starting over every few months, I was failing better every time I made moves in my fitness business.
I remember getting my first message on Facebook from this guy in Wisconsin who loved my show. I couldn’t believe it. Someone who actually knows me OUTSIDE of my 15 mile radius.
When he paid me $47 for a mobility program I created, it was the sweetest notification I’ve ever gotten.
Eventually my podcast generated opportunities like internships and a dream job that helped me reach my goal of earning a full time income in fitness (while living in San Francisco).
Grew my client roster to 60-70 clients that were on long term contracts. They were paying $265-375 / month to work with me. I got to work with gyms, coaches, and everyday people who were trusting me with their fitness.
This is when I really saw the power of podcasting in my life. I got to produce and co-host a show where listeners regularly requested me on our coaching applications.
When I hopped on calls with them, I felt an immediate sense of connection.
They would reference certain tips I had mentioned in previous episodes. I realized some of these people have had a relationship with me for over a year and I had no idea about it!
