HOW TO POST QUALITY CONTENT THAT ATTRACTS IDEAL CLIENTS
.
Have you ever noticed how other top influencers post a combination of professional and personal photos? Have you ever noticed how even the personal photos look high quality? There is a reason for this, it attracts ideal clients and draws people to their content.
.
One common mistake I see fitness coaches making is that they often do not overlook the visual quality of their content. You can post amazing and insightful captions to draw in ideal clients, I actually highly recommend that you do, but the caption is not the first thing that a potential client sees when scrolling through their feed. They see the photo or video that you’ve posted and that is what draws them into reading your caption. By focusing on creating quality content that is visually captivating you will gain the attention of potential clients, drawing them into the value within your caption and creating opportunities to connect with them on a deeper level from there.
.
This doesn’t mean that you have to spend hundreds of dollars on professional photos when you’re first starting out your online business. You can easily increase the quality of your existing photos with a few simple adjustments. Now I’m not saying that you should be photoshopping your photos and altering your appearance entirely but enhancing a photo to make the colors stand out more or highlight your existing muscle definition will only help to create a more professional feel to your page.
.
Have you ever used the filters and adjustment options that Instagram provides? These are an easy and cost-free way to level up and create more visually appealing content. Try using different filters or adjusting features such as brightness, contrast, saturation and structure to help bring out the best in your photos.

Nice to see yaaa. Here I am freezing my ass off with a smile on my face in Cryotherapy (and the temp actually got done to -275 at one point during this session). .
Have you ever done cryotherapy? Comment below if so or if you'd like to. ;-)
.
This reminds me, who else out there loves personal growth? I remember I discovered growing in college, about 5 years ago, when a friend gifted me a book. I was like reading? nah. .
But after it sat on the bookshelf in front of the computer where I was watching pointless Youtube videos day after day, I decided maybe I'd give it a shot.
.
That book was "Think and Grow Rich" and was my first breakthrough in learning how to change my life. I had Amazon Prime at the time, and remember buying book after book after book. Where a package would show up at my door every few days with a stack of 5 books at a time.
.
I started to realize this amazing thing, I can read words on a page and my life improves. I get more focus, more confidence (a rare thing for me at the time), and be happier all wrapped up into one.
.
That obsession with reading became my obsession with sharing. At the time, I was a strong hardcore Christian, Studying to be a pastor, and so I would share about how to improve your life with biblical teachings. Like have faith in God during tough times, maintain daily habits of prayer and reading the Bible, do good others as you would have them do to you. I started preaching in the church around this time in order to make it happen.
.
These days, I share a different message of empowerment. I'm so passionate about personal growth and how it is the key for us as a generation to being more fulfilled, more productive, better relationships, everything we want eventually lies within it. I never knew it as a kid, but now knowing it has led me to do crazy things like freeze my body for 3 minutes to improve my health.
.
Simple things make the biggest difference. Reading a book. Meeting an inspirational person. I could go on and on about how my life has changed because someone lived there life trying to help others become better.
.

What habits do you have which improve your life? Let me know below yooooooo.

Sometimes you need to go all out for Mom’s birthday. Today was one of those days. I felt it was time to get her something she’d never gotten before. And although every little girl talks about how they want a pony for their birthday or christmas, it was time to hook Mom up for the first time.

Want to catch the whole (hilarious) story, including segments of me riding the pony? Check out the link in the biooooo. #becausegainz 💪🏽❤️

How to be vulnerable to attract clients
.
THE POWER OF VULNERABILITY.
.
One of the hardest things for me to share online? My porn addiction. From age 12 until sometime this year at age 26, I struggled with viewing porn. Now recently I made a decision to be completely free for good, as it was hurting my sex life drastically, hurting my relationships in obvious (and some not so obvious) ways, and was horrible for my health in a variety of ways.
.
Honestly, it's probably what I'm more ashamed of than anything else. An addiction which I chose to keep around for way too long which has caused damage on untold levels in my life.
.
For all of the ways in which I'm proud of the man I've become, My commitment to now being free of porn is something which will it's most important to my evolution not just as a leader in my industry, but as a man.
.
In the future, I will either actively have my nonprofit work to bring awareness of porn's horrible effects on men and women, (both the viewer and those in the industry), or will support other initiatives which are doing work against the porn industry.
.
Now why do I share this with you? .
First of all, I know there's a bunch of men reading this right now who are challenged with this same addiction (according to the statistics, likely some women too. Apparently 30% of porn viewers are women). I want these men and women, regardless of their response to see someone stand up against something which they know is hurting their lives and hopefully be inspired 1% to leave it behind for good.
.
Second, I want you to be free of the shame I've felt for years over keeping this addiction private. In sharing it with you, I know I can find a deeper level of freedom, healing, and freaking commitment to never ever ever go back in pursuit of a healthy sex life and better relationships everywhere in my life.
.
Third, public accountability. Anyone can ask me how I'm doing in my recovery process at any time. This is added incentive to put further distance between me and my former addiction. I want to always say I let this go forever. This is a step towards that for me.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS COMPETITION
.
Two weeks ago I found myself waking up with anxiety. I was thinking about competition I have in an area of my life. I was thinking about this other guy and wishing he didn't exist. Thinking of all the ways in which he is naturally better than me or more skilled or more whatever. Honestly feeling afraid of him.
.
I had a conversation with a friend about this and he reminded me of a principle which I had always taught to others, but for some reason, felt it wasn't true of me in this case.
.
I had started to feel afraid, rather than happy for this person.
.
Here's the truth about competition...
.
Competition benefits the end user. Whether in business, dating, sports, or whatever competition is good for the world. In business, it means more people are served and a better product is likely going to be delivered at a better price. Dating means each person has better options to choose from. Sports means a better game to watch for the fans. Competition is good for the world. And whenever I have competition in an area of my life, it pushes me to become better there.
.
Competition doesn't REALLY exist when you are authentic. When a person is their best self, their really is no competition. For example, in dating when I show up as who I authentically am, doing my best, if the person I'm pursuing chooses someone else, then that's perfect. It means I wouldn't have been a great match for that person in the long run. As long as I share my authentic story and create amazing results for my clients, I have no competition in business. If a client chooses a competitor's product, I genuinely hope they get amazing results because I want all coaches to succeed today. I know for all the different type of coaches to be served, we need all kinds of coaches supporting. .

THE STRUGGLE LEADS TO STRENGTH.
.
I sat looking at myself in the mirror...naked.
.
How could you do this AGAIN? You had it right at the tip of your fingertips and lost it.
.
I had just learned some news which devastated me. I felt worthless, alone, lost.
.
Like it was something which had proved what i feared for so long...I was unloveable.
.
I had experienced many moments like this in circumstances I came back from, but for some reason this one felt bigger than the rest.
.
I saw her inside the restaurant across the street. Sitting with another man. She was laughing, smiling, happy.
.
Walking over, my heart had already dropped into my stomach, was this family? A friend? Something more?
.
I hoped for the best, expected the worst. And said hello.
.
She introduced me to a man who I remembered her alluding to, but never mentioning by name. A man who she was clearly captivated by.
.
After some small talk which I managed to smile through, I asked her if I could speak with her privately. She declined, and said she would catch up with me some other time. I was crushed.
.
A woman who I had recently fallen for...had chosen someone else. I was...yet again...alone.

WANT TO GET MORE?
.
Whenever someone applies to join one of our programs, whether the Wealthy Coach Academy to grow a six figure fitness coaching business or to Legacy to grow a million dollar coaching business, our application process includes one very important question.
.
Are you a giver?
.
We're simply no longer interested in people joining our program who aren't tremendously motivated to give to others in the community. Those who will support others goals, teach what they learn, share their wins, and share what's working and what's not. I've found since I started the Academy that literally clients who perform the best in their business are also those who give back to others in the community.
.
Why is this? Because givers are getters. Life and the universe support those who support life. And when a person demonstrates how they want to help everyone else in their world, those people want to give back to them, and they also put off such an attractive energy that everyone wants to work with them.
.
Givers are those who receive the most from the world, and I want my students modeling this because when they give, the world benefits, and so do they. The greatest givers are the greatest givers, and those who give more, receive more too.

WHERE MY CAREER IS HEADED OVER THE NEXT 12 MONTHS.
.
I started as an online fitness coach almost two years ago. I remember before I even made my first sale, lying on my aunt's bed fresh out of surgery, a commitment I made to myself.
.
I will get so good at being an online fitness coach, eventually I will teach others how to do this too. Eventually I will help them as I will be helped.
.
Now I certainly didn't expect to build my company as fast as I did and transition to mentoring online fitness coaches 9 months in, but I knew from the start it would get there. I have an attitude of MASTERY, which means when I commit to something, I want to be the best I can possibly be at it, and then I want to share what I learn with others.
.
After I became a business mentor to fitness coaches, I realized something, I will become the mentor to influencers who want to grow their online businesses, especially those with personal brands. Simultaneously, I will grow a series of services to those in the fitness industry to where the Wealthy Coach Academy will literally be the most obvious choice for anyone in the world who wants to grow an online fitness coaching business.
.
Sure there will always be competition, but how do we do it so well, and create such EXTRAORDINARY results for our clients no one can possible do it as well as us. Plus, how do we KEEP GETTING BETTER, so even if someone copies what we do now, they will always be a few steps behind us.
.
So yes, Instant Impact and the Wealthy Coach Academy will become the PREMIER business empowerment company for all of fitness coaches, influencers, and experts. The results of the competition won't even come close (if you ask my humble opinion, that's already the case now, but not everyone knows about this yet, :-)).
