Money - it's the thing we all need, but are told not to talk about for fear of offending others. In this episode of the Mi365 Business Series, we crack the lid on money making - listen to Pete's incredible story of how he went from four clients in a late-night gym to selling a successful business for £2.4 million.
Pete begins by sharing details of his early life, discussing his time as a personal trainer and being fascinated as to why he would see people join gyms but either fail to attend or not get positive results. This simple observation set him on a trajectory to create his first weight loss business (Shape Up), as well as getting national media coverage and publishing best-selling books. Fast-forward several years and a fortuitous chance encounter, Pete describes his motivation for selling the business and the trials that followed - from the negotiation table through to cashing the cheque.
After selling the business and a series of poor decisions later, Pete describes his realisation that many of us don't know how to deal with money. Whilst many of us strive to be wealthy, Pete and Ben outline how it is in fact the love of doing something which is the ultimate reward and not the material trappings associated with financial success. The pair discuss the 'Nexus Point' - the point where you 1) Love what you do; 2) the world needs what you do and 3) you are good at what you do and how this should be at the heart of your business.
Pete finishes up this incredible instalment by sharing his new advice to aspiring business owners - believe bigger, faster and have the courage to commit. Definitely an episode not to miss - register for the new Mi365 Business Mindset Group TODAY - www.mi365.me/business.
