You’ll learn how to move beyond just selling your time to owning your time, so you can inspire not just hundreds but thousands or millions of people. “Imagine your potential if time wasn’t a factor,” says presenter Mark Macdonald. “I hear fitness pros say it takes too much time and money to create an online presence, write a book, do videos, be featured on local and national media or become a keynote speaker.”

There might have been some truth to that ten years ago, but not now, says Macdonald. “Today quality content is the king on all platforms, online, books, video, media and speaking. If you possess powerful content that people want and need, you’ll exponentially build your business and achieve all of your goals. Time and money are no longer the road blocks that derail you.”

Presenter Sue Hitzmann will discuss myths about branding to clarify how the term differs from advertising or marketing. “There is a myth that you need a lot of money or an investor to build a brand. That isn’t necessarily the case. One thing I know about fitness pros is that they love to help people and they work hard, but they don’t always make the income they should. I’m going to share how I started as a group exercise instructor and built a multimillion dollar business, and how other fitness pros can, too.”

Sara Gottfried, MD

Presenter Sara Gottfried says she’ll teach fitness pros how to market with integrity, which has helped her get a #1 ranked podcast on iTunes, a #5 New York Times bestseller, and a seven-figure book advance. “It's all about the baby steps that add up to major transformation, and I'll share with you the top three baby steps that created the greatest return on investment.”
