Today's episode was a privilege to record, and coaches, it is such a pleasure to share this interview I conducted with Holly Perkins. Holly was voted "Top Trainer to Watch" by Shape Magazine, and I knew that when we booked her, this interview would be amazing. Our conversation, however, did not just meet my high hopes and expectations; it blew me away.
In this episode, Holly shares with me how her own health journey created significant hurdles while she was at a peak in her career. Since then, she has transitioned her business entirely to the onIine space. We take a deep dive into the benefits of being a virtual coach and knowing your worth. The importance of not dismissing changes as "but" and instead embracing them as "and" was an undercurrent that we brought to the forefront later on in the episode.
This episode is an absolute must listen for FitPros and other entrepreneurs.
Holly & I talk all about:
- How to stay in the game and keep up with what you are doing.
- The power of transformation.
- Determining the value of your service.
Don't forget to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts.
