Building a successful business starts with Personal Development. That's a fact.
Nobody knows this better than motivational dynamo, Chalene Johnson. Her expertise goes beyond fitness and into the world of personal growth. She's helped thousands of people not only reach the body of their dreams, but also score business and personal success, too.
With the PiYo® Challenge Pack offer in full swing, September is a perfect month to fine-tune your Personal Development skills. Thanks to Chalene's tips, you'll be armed and ready to approach more people than ever and in turn see your business grow!
So without further ado, we present the PiYo® queen herself.
Why is Personal Development so vital for success, Chalene?
It's the ultimate short-cut of 'how to get there.' It works because you have successful leaders sharing their answers and insight. Self-improvement and Personal Development saves you time and frustration and makes you a better person, leader, partner and business owner. That, in turn, makes you happier!
What's your number one tip for productivity?
Make a list of all the things you want and need to do. Next, answer this question: What activity is most important to move my business forward? Then, turn off your phone to minimize distractions. Close the extra tabs on your browser and do not multi-task. Work for no more than 40 minutes; then take a 15 minute break. It's important to give your brain a chance to replenish energy so you can produce your best work.
How can Coaches set attainable goals for business and fitness?
If you're a true entrepreneur, your job is to start with research. Determine what you need to do first and how to do it, then set up a system of accountability. Even if your Upline Coach isn't the most accessible, there are thousands of Coaches before you who are generous with their journey. Success leaves a trail and so many of the answers can be found on YouTube, blogs and Team calls! Engage, create a plan and take this journey one step at a time!
What's one thing Coaches can do every day to reach their fitness and business goals?
The key is to maintain a level of intensity and progress you can sustain for the long haul. This business is proven. The people who stay at it and take baby steps every day succeed. Period. Those who go fast and furious for a short time lose momentum and find themselves disenchanted. Daily persistence is so important. I also suggest that every business owner find an accountability partner. This works in business and in fitness.
Do you have any favorite Personal Development books or exercises?
Shameless plug for my own New York Times Best Selling book, Push! I also love Virtual Freedom by Chris Ducker. In addition, I'm a big fan of podcasts like Build Your Tribe, The School of Greatness and Online Marketing Made Easy.
What's your advice for new Coaches trying to get their businesses off the ground?
Everything mentioned above, but most importantly, to be engaged! Don't miss phone calls, meetings, Facebook accountability groups, or Super Saturdays. The more you engage, the easier it is to understand success habits.
How can Personal Development help Coaches sell PiYo®?
Confidence. People will be attracted to you and want to be around you. When that happens, you don't have to sell and your business will take off. Do not be afraid to fail. People relate to those of us who are willing to honestly share our mistakes, challenges and missteps. Be real. And the best way, and perhaps the only way to sell something is to try it. If you haven't tried PiYo, I have one question for you: What are your waiting for?
