Delegate Lower Level Tasks

Enter the skill of delegation. From the solopreneur to the business owner with a large team delegation is a skill that must be developed and implemented to grow the business. There will be a time where you’ll have to ‘wear all the hats’ in your business, but it shouldn’t last long.
Systemize & Scale
Developing systems and scaling a personal training business is often misunderstood. These are typically buzzwords that get thrown around in the industry.
Systems are a set of tasks completed to deliver predictable results. However, systems shouldn’t be built out so in depth that they hinder the people trying to implement them. The systems you put in place should empower the people running them to do their job more effectively.

To scale you need to be able to replicate those predictable results your systems create. That requires that you hire the right people or outsource the right tasks so that others are getting results for you.
