I would say start small with room to expand. Only buy what you absolutely need to get started and spend money slowly and conservatively. Determine your “niche” and focus on that–don’t try to be everything for everybody. Stay open and flexible–if something is not working, be ready to change strategies. Same thing with employees–don’t waste resources on someone who is not helping your business. Research and learn as much as you can about fitness, business and managing people before you start and then keep learning. Attend free or low cost seminars/webinars. Read books to stay motivated. It’s not an easy business but the rewards are endless!
