In this podcast, LoganChristopher and Tyler Bramlett teach you the step by step ways to make more money in your FitnessBusiness. Let’s take it on a word for this episode of the Fitness Money Podcast.Tyler: Hey, guys! Welcome to the Fitness Money podcast. It’s Tyler and Logan here and we’re going toteach you how to make more money in your fitness industry. How is it going, Logan?Logan: It’s going really good. I am very excited about this episode because I am really excited about2013.Tyler: Oh, man, I couldn’t be more excited, too. It’s been a wild ride for me in 2012 and I expect 2013 tobe just way more fun than this year was even.Copyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  2. 2. Logan: Yeah, we’re going to be talking about things some things way, way, way beyond New Year’sresolutions but also maybe on goals, the processes that I’ve gone through. It’s really because of thesethat I’ve gotten to this point in my life where I’m not just successful in one area—there’s of course roomfor improvement—but successful in a wide range of areas. It’s because of these processes that I’m goingthrough. I use the whole New Year’s thing as sort of a catalyst to really get myself amped up and raringto go for the New Year. That being said, if you’re happening to listen to this any other time, theres noreason you can’t do everything we’re telling you about today at any other time.Tyler: Absolutely. I was just thinking when you were saying that, Logan, you know what would be a greatthing to start this off with when we’re talking about goals? Talking about how to do it wrong because Isee way too many people out there setting these goals. I know that both you and I have fallen into thistrap before where you just go out there and you make all the wrong mistakes. Does that sound likesomething we could do?Logan: Yeah. There are a lot of mistakes. Let me just mention this about resolutions. There was somesort of study done—I don’t remember where I saw this exactly—but the mere fact of writing down aresolution—this doesn’t even include any of the actual goal setting of stuff you want to do—the mereact of writing it down increases the likelihood of it happening by somewhere between 50% and 70%.That’s one thing. That’s one of the biggest mistakes that people make. If they have what they call aresolution, it’s some [inaudible 0:02:41.5]idea that they just have in their head and there’s really nocommitment and it will never come to light.Tyler: Absolutely. I think that I’ll just kind of share my experience. I remember especially in the fitnessworld, if you’re setting physical goals for yourself or if you’re setting business goals for yourself, one ofthe things that I did wasn’t to set too big of goals, it was set too many goals. I had too many things goingon at the same time and they were counterintuitive. It would be like me setting a physical goal, say Iwant to be a power lifting champion in the super heavyweight class and I want to be able to do an ironcross on the gymnastic rings. These two things don’t work together. They work against each other. Sochoosing your goals wisely and understanding that you have to place goals that build on each otherrather than goals that are working against each other. Otherwise, you’re just going to just get frustratedtrying to work on things that are going to working against each other the entire time.Logan: Yeah. You actually have to be working towards those goals. I remember you and I both did thisthing where we had a humongous list, like 30 to 50 goals I would say, and the fact was in our training wewere maybe working for five of those goals. While you can be working towards a lot at a time, you reallycan’t be working towards too many things. The same is true for business. If you can focus in on certainareas and actually be doing something that will work your way towards that every single day, that’sgoing to get you the actual results.Tyler: Yeah. That’s absolutely powerful. I just pulled up a statistic because I thought that these would beinteresting to kind of share with you while you were talking about that, Logan, but you guys need torealize something. According to this statistic, only 8% of people are always successful in achieving theirCopyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  3. 3. resolutions. That’s powerful. I know that, “always achieving their resolutions” is a very powerful phrasebut that tells us only one out of twelve people that actually set a resolution do it achieve it.It says right here also that more than 49% have infrequent success and more than 25% never succeedand have failed on every resolution every single year. That means in total, almost three out of fourpeople almost never succeed on their resolutions. This is important, that you guys understand theprocess it takes to achieve your goals.Logan: There are reasons for that, that will stop anyone dead in their tracks with their goals likepsychological reversals, though we don’t want to get too heavy into that space and there are ways youcan work through that. Actually going through the proper processes, that can be a long way towardsachieving that goal.Another reason people fail and really what’s happening there is they basically have one part of themthat wants that goal, the conscious part versus the subconscious part, and another part of them that isgetting something more out of them not achieving that goal than actually achieving it. Once again, thereare a lot of different things you can do with this but just by working through some of the stuff we’regoing to talk about today, by really getting clear on what it is you want, those things can come into yourline and so those reversals can disappear. You can then achieve your goals.Tyler: Absolutely. That’s a good thing to start with, Logan. Do you think we should we start with clarity?Logan: Yeah. Let’s start with clarity. What do you mean specifically by clarity?Tyler: Yes. Clarity is the magic word. Another mistake that I made years ago was not knowing what Iwanted in a clear way. I’d write a goal and say I want to achieve this but I wouldn’t describe—Logan: I want to make $100,000 a year, something like that.Tyler: Yeah. Exactly. I want to make $100,000 a year but I wouldn’t write down why I wanted to achieveit or how I wanted to achieve it. Theres nothing wrong with not necessarily knowing the path butthrowing out loose goals, it means you’re loosely going to succeed at best.Logan: They do say if you have a strong enough why, the how isn’t all that important. Theres truth tothat. If you really have a burning desire to succeed and you’re not sure about how you’re going to do it,then you’re going to go figure out how you’re going to do it. You’re going to learn the process along theway if you have that motivation, the volition, and the drive towards that desire to succeed.Tyler: Absolutely. One of the first things you can with your goals, let’s take a financial goal like we justtalked about: I want to have my first $100,000 year, the first thing you need to figure out is figure outwhy the hell do you want to have a $100,000 year. Because if all you visualize when the going gets toughis a stack of hundred-dollar bills or a bank account with a number, you’re not going to have the passionbehind that goal that will allow you to achieve that. Take a moment to think about the why. Why do youwant to have $100,000 a year? Is it because it will help you move into a better neighborhood, it willallow your wife to quit her job, or you’ll be able to get a new car that you’ve been needing for a longCopyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  4. 4. time? The thing with the most power, the thing that gets you the most excited, are the whys you wantto look for.So you can take your goals one at a time, the ones that you really think you want to achieve, and youcan apply just five minutes of your time writing down every reason why you want to achieve that goaland trying to also look out which ones are the most powerful, which ones give you that intense,emotional purpose and feeling, and notice that those are the ones you’re going want to focus on whenthe going gets tough when you’re trying to achieve those goals.Logan: One very important thing about money, like you said, money by itself is not motivating. The thingis that you have goals in so many different areas in your life. I’d say in 90% of the cases that money iswhat allows you to achieve those other things. Money is what allows you to go on vacations and like yousaid, allows your wife to quit her job. If you have a business to the point where you don’t need to workin it, where it’s running by itself, it gives you that time of freedom in order to achieve anything you wantto do, that is a big reason for having financial goals and having business goals. That’s of course why wehave this podcast and why we’re in this business ourselves.Tyler: Absolutely. It’s just so powerful to really know why you want to achieve what you want to achievebecause they’re the logs that fuel the fire. I work with commercial gyms still so I see people come intothe gyms starting January first and their all fired up. They’re ready to go and they’re going to lose 40pounds. It’s the same as when you’re going to make $100,000 a year. They come in all fired up and thenthe problem is they don’t have a big enough why. So one month later they’re back into their old habitsand they’ve completely forgotten about their goal. Defining that why is so, so powerful. I cannotunderestimate how powerful that is.Logan: That’s huge. There’s one other thing that I think is the biggest failing point for people and goals.It’s two things really. It is consistent focus on whatever that goal is. That means doing the actionsnecessary towards taking it. A lot of reasons why people fail with this resolution is they actually justforget about them. It’s not in their mind at all. It’s not something that they’re committed to and it’s notsomething that they’re acting on every day so they’re not going to do it.The second part of that which is really related is when you’re taking consistent action, when you’redoing something towards your goal every single day, you get feedback. If you are trying to lose weight,you’re going to step on the scale or measure your body in different forms and if what you’re doing isn’tworking, you’re going to be able to figure that out. Then you can alter your plan, whatever processyou’re going through, go for it some more, and get more feedback.It’s the same thing with making money. When you’re building your business, is what you’re doingworking? You notice what worked really well, you noticed what didn’t work, and you alter your plan forthe next product launch or the sales process that we talked about in previous episodes. You tweak it.You use that feedback in order to get better so that ultimately, you are making your way toward thegoal.

  5. 5. straight path but they make tiny course corrections the entire time until they get to the target. That’sthe same way people are with their goals.Tyler: Absolutely. You can’t definitively say how you’re going to get somewhere but you can lay out astarting pathway. Maybe it’s a good moment to just talk about what I like to set personal goals in. I liketo set financial goals. I like to set physical goals. I like to set relationship goals, as well. Those are allthings where I’m trying to enrich my family and friends’ lives, I’m trying to enrich my own life, and I’mtrying to enrich my financial life as well. Logan, what do you typically set goals for? I know you have awhole hard drive on goals.Logan: Let’s see. I have sort of my skills and certifications, and different things I want to be doingregularly. There are material goals, I found that I’m able to buy a lot of the smaller toys I wanted up to$3,000 so I’m having to find that I’m going to have to start getting into bigger toys soon, which is a realproblem; leisure travel or just fun things like I want to go skydiving this year; my family and friend goals;health goals; financial goals; business goals; productivity goals; and of course training goals. So yes, a lotof different things and all very important to me.Tyler: Absolutely. So what I prefer to do, once I’ve kind of looked at each goal and I’ve made a big list, isactually do what I call “take out the trash,” especially with the physical goals. I look at my physical goalsand Ive always been somebody who wants to achieve everything at the same time. Thats why Imentioned earlier the mistakes that I’ve made in writing goals because they really stalled my progress.Taking out the trash over the last few years has helped me kind of narrow my focus. Even though I’mstill an attention deficit disorder trainer, it’s helped me narrow my focus on what it is that. Let’s say fiveyears from now if I’m not able to do this, I’m going to be really sad about that versus five years fromnow I’m just focusing on 20 things at one time, never achieving any of them, and being at least well, Itried.So you can take your list of physical goals, of material goals, of financial goals, and you can take out thetrash. You can look at them one at a time and be like is this really something that I need to achieve thisyear. You want to prioritize them and realize that the better feeling you get about a goal and the morepassion and fire you have about that goal, the more likely you are to succeed on that goal. Not keepinggoals in your list that you look at and go, “Oh well, I guess that would be cool,” and you can’t find a greatlist of why’s on but taking out the trash and getting rid of those goals that don’t really matter as much toyou so you can narrow your focus and really achieve big things this year.Logan: One thing I did which is new to me, I don’t even know where the idea came from, is to add morefun to the goal setting process. I only did this specifically with some of my business goals. What I did wasinstead of just setting a goal, I created operations. So I have Operation Amazon Domination. I didn’t gettoo weird with some of these names but some of them are a little off the wall. With that, theres onemain goal: using Amazon as a sales channel, I want to sell a whole bunch of things on there and build itto making $15,000 per month on Amazon. That’s the number one goal I want to achieve in the nextyear. With that, there are a whole bunch of sub-goals but that I can just put under the idea of AmazonCopyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  6. 6. Domination. I have this whole idea of what it is because there are several different facets to thatoperation that are going in and this is one of the number one things.Another operation I have is Operation Video Overlord where I’m focusing on using YouTube as a way toattract website leads and eventually get sales. Ive already had a lot of success with video in the past soI’m just looking to double the results that I’ve gotten in the past and doing that within one year to reallygrow that. By focusing instead of on all of these thousand of different things I can be doing with anonline business, I have some specific areas I’m going for.By making them a little more fun, by having these operations, and setting the goals that way, I think I’mgoing to have more success with doing this because I’m going to have these written up in my roomwhere I see it regularly as I’m working. Every single day, these operations and what steps I’m taking,what focus I’m doing, what sort of action and results am I getting with these, in order to really helptowards that end goal and thus achieve the success I want in my business over time.Tyler: Absolutely. We’ve talked about defining what you want, adding some clarity, finding out the whysthen starting to create the hows. I know that you do a similar form of this, Logan, but I’ll kind of sharemy way of kind of chunking things down. What I like to do with my goals each year is instead of say, Iwant to make $50,000 a month and looking at where I’m at right now and saying all I’m going to focuson is the $50,000, I like to set smaller goals in between, things like quarterly goals, monthly goals, notnecessarily giving them a specific time bound but giving them a specific amount of steps that I want toachieve before a year. So I can weigh on each goal how successful I am on it based on how far I amthrough the year when I achieve each step.A simple example would be let’s say you’re making $5,000 a month and your goal is to make $10,000 amonth. You can chunk that down into six different steps where each step takes about two months. Youcan say by the end of February, I want to have my first $6,000 month. By the end of April, I want to havemy first $7,000 month. By the end of June, I want to have my first $8,000 month. By then end of August,I want to have my first $9,000 month and so on and so forth until you get to the end of the year andyou’re having your first $10,000 month.I like to take all of my goals, financial, physical, whatever it is, and I like to look at them. An examplewould be I injured my right knee a while back and I want to be able to do front squats again with 295pounds. So I’ll take that number and I’ll chunk it down to what I know I’m very close to achieving. ThenI’ll divide that into five other steps throughout the year so I can say guess what, I got up to 165 poundswith no pain. Well now the very next goal, the only thing I’m focusing on is 195 pounds. It’s not going inmy mind from 165 to 295 because that may be too big of a step in terms of my belief systems of what Ican achieve and that can stall me from making progress.So I really like to take my physical goals, my financial goals, everything, and chunk them down into smallbaby bites, like small steps, so I can make sure that I’m always moving forward towards achieving them.Logan: Within that, there’s something interesting that really isn’t pointed out all that much. There aredifferences between achievement goals and then activity goals. If you’re setting a goal as you want toCopyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  7. 7. earn $30,000 in a single month, that’s a good goal to have. It’s specific and all that but how do you reallyachieve that without it just happening? Contrast that with, “I want to sell three new products thismonth” or, “I want to sign up 20 new clients” or, “Do a certain promotion,” something where you have aspecific activity that you can do. Then it becomes something much more in your control.Now I think you should have both of these goals, these achievement things as well as the activities butbecause the activities are really more action-oriented. You know specifically what you need to do. Evenif you have one of those achievements like a monthly income you want to earn, what are the activitiesyou’re going to do, the specific actions steps you need in order to hit them? Have basically sub-goals forthat that should lead to the end result you really want to have.Tyler: Absolutely. Creating steps and then, like Logan said, creating those sub-goals that are the actualaction goals that you need for something to be achieved. Then the next step, Logan already touched onthis. I pulled up another stat here just to kind of take a look at it. Here’s the sad truth: 80% of Americanssay they do not have any goals, 16% say they do have goals but they do not write them down, less than4% write down their goals, and fewer than 1% review them on an ongoing basis.Logan already alluded to this. It’s the people who write down their goals, tell their friends, that make itclear that they’re going to achieve this in a specific amount of time, that are the most likely to actuallyachieve their goals. If you’re sitting in your bed and you’re talking about goals in your own head, guesswhat? You’re just dreaming. You’re with that 80% that’s probably never going to achieve anything thatyou say you’re going to achieve in your life. Even if you have those goals and you’re bringing them up toyour friends and stuff but you’re not writing them down, you’re not making them clear, you’re stillprobably not likely to achieve them.Taking those goals and putting them into a place where you can see them, where they will remind youconstantly that you’re trying for them, is something that you absolutely have to do if you want toachieve those goals.Logan: Yeah. This is one of my favorite quotes from success guru Brian Tracy, “Success equals goals—allelse is commentary.” If you want to do whatever you want to achieve in your life, learn and figure outthe process of goal setting. Really, it is individual to each person but work at this. Start with writingdown your goals and really developing the process of how you do it. That’s the next thing I want to talkabout, my actual process of review and feedback along with these goals that really carries out throughthe entire year. If you get good at goal setting and then of course doing the actions in order to achievethose, you will achieve success. All else is commentary. It is that important for you to do, which is whyI’m so excited about this stuff.Let’s talk about my process. I started a long time ago when I first really learned about the possibility ofachieving success. I was listening to Jim Rohn and he talked about keeping a journal and writing about itevery day. What I took that to mean was write what happened throughout your day and I did this everysingle day for a period of three or four years. I still have those where I chronicled everything I did in myday. It would be like half a page or a page worth of writing.Copyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  8. 8. Sometime during that process, I started doing a weekly review where I would go through my previousweek and write down what went well, what didn’t go well, but also have some plans for the next week.Then I started doing this with a monthly process where I was then reviewing all those days andreviewing all the weeks, figuring out what went well, what didn’t go so well. Once again, this was lookingat the feedback. It’s actually going back to see how you’re doing with all those things. I would really talkabout the different areas of my life that were important to me like when I started my business, of doingmy training, my social life, those sorts of things.At some point, I decided writing every single day took a bit of time so I finally dropped that but Icontinued with the weekly and the monthly review and planning that I did. Then I started doing thatwith my year as well and that is what has grown to what I’m doing today. It literally takes a few days.I’ve already spent probably something like 15 hours on it so far. Right now I have a 15-page documenttyped up in my computer, 10-pt font, detailing all the different areas of my life with the goals and theplans to achieve that in the New Year. It’s by going through this process of constant review, constantplanning, looking at the feedback, that is what allows me to grow.Tyler: Absolutely, Logan. That’s an awesome way to kind of share your course with us. I’m not quite asextreme as Logan in this regard but maybe I should be.Logan: I suggest everyone just try this out. It really does work that well. The important thing is that thereare different ways to keep it top of your mind where you’re looking at the feedback and everything. Byhaving a process that works for you—and this has worked for me. I’ve been doing it for I don’t evenknow how many years now—that’s the important thing. Find something that works for you and do itregularly and then you’re going to get results. You can’t not get results if you do this because you’regoing to beat yourself up in this journal that you write and you’re going to kick your ass into gear inorder to achieve your goals. Then you’re going to start doing them.Tyler: Absolutely. One thing I was going to say is that I absolutely do agree with the fact that it takestime to do this. I’ve only cultivated this habit maybe in the last four or so years since I started my ownbusiness but I remember the year I had just started my own business and I was really starting to try tofigure out how I could succeed. I was still doing construction part time, running boot camps, and takingon personal clients. I was making okay money for the average person but I had bigger dreams and biggervision.I remember a certain period of time at the end of the year where I sat in my office for God, it was thebetter part of two weeks, and I kind of just stared off into space but not in a spacey zone. I wasn’tabsent minded but rather I was thinking about my future. I was thinking about everything that I wantedto achieve and I was really defining it specifically. When things became powerful enough, I would jotthem down in kind of my list of ultimate goals I’d want to achieve in the next five years. So I’m two yearsthrough that five-year period and I was just thinking really big time one what I wanted to achieve.You guys, if you’re not willing to spend the time to sit down and think about where you want to end upin your life a year down the road, five years down the road, ten years down the road, or what you wantCopyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  9. 9. to be written on your grave stone, then you might as well get a regular job and be a normal person whogoes to work and works for the man. You’re probably not going to be this wildly successful individual.But if you want to be self-employed, if you want constantly improve your financial status, if you want tohave a business that you can walk away from at some point, then you have to take the time to sit downand define what it is that you want to achieve. All this brings it kind of full circle back to that first thingwe talked about, which is that clarity. What is it that you want to achieve?Logan: You said something really important there about the time period of how long you want to lookforward. For different people, this is going to be different. For me, I find I can’t really go beyond a year. Ihave a general idea of where I want to be in five, ten years however, I change my mind a lot so to reallyget concrete with that, that’s sort of outside my scope. But within a year, I can really figure out what Iwant to do.Another part I do along with this whole review process is instead of just projecting myself out, I imaginemyself in a day at the end of, right now, 2013 so December of 2013. What does my average day looklike? Truthfully, it’s not much different than it is now because I’ve done this process a number of timesthrough the years and my day basically runs how I want it to.It’s funny because in the beginning, it was quite dramatically different then. I got maybe over halfwaythere then I changed it and tweaked it up some more. Those tweaks were smaller but through the year,it got to there. At this point, it’s really like minor things because I’m already living the daily life that Iwant to live. I get to work in my business, which I enjoy. I get to train for a couple of hours each day. Iget then spend time with my girlfriend and study things I want to study at night. I really don’t want to doanything different. That’s what Ive planned over these years and that is what has got me there.One other point in reviewing, the importance of that, why it’s useful to have these journals and to goback through and read all those weekly and monthly reviews, to read last year’s review and plan of theyear is time consuming to do. It took like two hours or so to do just that part alone but by doing that, Inoticed certain patterns for myself that I wouldn’t be able to otherwise. I noticed certain things that ledto a lot of success in the previous year that I didn’t do this year that now I’m going to do next yearbecause I want to get that success.For instance, one of my operations is Assembly Line. One of the best things I’m good at is creating lots ofproducts because it’s easier to sell to people that already know you, like you, and trust you, as weestablished last time. So if I do more stuff that’s constantly updated and better, I make a lot more sales. Ididn’t do as much of that in the previous year though I did a whole bunch the year before that and thathelped to double my business. So I’m bringing that back in. I’m focusing on a lot of new products.Only by having this material to review—because we will all distort things through time in our minds—but by actually having what I wrote back then, I’m able to find out exactly what happened and thendevelop plans for the future based on that.Copyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
  10. 10. Tyler: Yeah. There’s a good saying that says, “That which get’s measured get’s improved.” Logan’stalking about looking at himself, his physical nature, his finances, his business, relationships, everything,and that’s great to just go back and look through it. I have a slightly different process and it may not beas effective, like I said before, but I do the old face to the wall.Logan: Yeah, I’m better at this than you are, Tyler. I’ve been doing it longer.Tyler: I really enjoy my face to the wall time though where it’s just kick your feet up and really just selfexamine and look at the traits that I liked in myself this year, look at the traits that I didn’t like in myselfthis year.Logan: Less visual, more aesthetic. I need to write out as I’m planning, make my maps and everythinglike I did. I literally had all these pages scattered as I was going through this process and I typed it up tomake it look nice on the computer and for reasons of editing but it’s much the same process.Tyler: Yeah. Absolutely. So just to kind of cover everything before we get off the call today, just so youguys have kind of some real basic stuff that we talked about: Define your goals. Get them clear. Knowexactly what it is you what. Define why it is that you want to achieve them and then create a system ofhow you plan to achieve them. Logan mentioned this; this is great: add fun to your goals so that they’remore fun and exciting to achieve. Create baby steps that you can go through to get to the end goal.Write them down, review them often, and adjust course as necessary. If you guys do those things, youwill get to your goals, plain and simple.Logan: Yeah. The main thing really is once you have that goal and plan in action, just review it daily. Ihave some giant whiteboards in my office right now. They’re more filled than they were before becauseI realized there are certain things I haven’t been tracking as well as I really should have and I know, likeyou said, if it gets tracked, it’s improved. So I’m going to be doing daily, weekly, and monthly tallying ofdifferent things in order to achieve these goals. By doing that, then the huge insurmountable goals that Ihave set will actually get achieved because I had broken it down piece by piece and I can take that dailyaction towards it.What I recommend for everyone really works well. Why I like to do it with the New Year’s is it’s reallysort of a down time between Christmas and New Year’s which is when I’ve been doing this year. But youcan do it at any time. Really spend some time, really dramatically take a lot of time to do this. It seemslike people have some sort of an epiphany or it is a catalyst for change if they do that, like you weretaking about: just taking the time to stare at the wall. If you do that, then you really format a whole planfor your whole life and then you can go out there and do that. It only gets easier, better, and faster asyou continue to do this process in the future.Tyler: Absolutely. You fail to plan, you plan to fail. So get out there, figure out what you want, and go forit. Awesome. That was a great call, Logan. Hopefully these guys will benefit greatly from the goal settingand next time, we’ll be coming back on the New Year and we’re going to be focusing on helpingeverybody achieve their goals and in the process, achieving our goals at the same time.Copyright © 2013 FitnessMoney.com All Rights Reserved
