The Top Article of the Week
This week’s top article is the one I wish I would have read when I first started out in training people. Like our clients looking for a magic pill to lose weight, we can be tempted to search for a magic marketing pill which will blow up our business and have clients begging to work with us.

Dr. John Berardi from Precision Nutrition has spent a great number of years honing his skills to give his clients the best possible blend of results and experience, and in this post he outlines three simple things you may be overlooking to increase your client base. [HINT: It’s all about them!]
