    113. Making It Happen With Members: How This Young Entrepreneur Grew a Million Dollar Business In Under 12 Months (with Jye Bohm, PROFINISH and Frontrunner)

    How does a former professional football player turned young entrepreneur help grow a new fashion label to 7-figures in under 12 months? The quick answer? By taking the lessons he's learned from his business coach. Sounds simple, but Jye Bohm, the Director of PROFINISH and Director of Front Runner, will tell you otherwise.

    With a 6 year journey in business with half of it working with The Entourage's coaches, Jye has been able to grow PROFINISH Fire Protection & Coatings from $1.5 million to $20 million, AND help childhood friend, Tim Hanly, accelerate the growth of new startup and Aussie fashion label, Front Runner, too. But it wasn't easy. From doing nearly everything in business, working more hours despite hiring new staff, and feeling like a jack of all trades but master of none, Jye shares his journey of overcoming challenges like these to becoming a more seasoned entrepreneur, and how you can too.

    This 'Making It Happen with Members' bonus episode of The Make It Happen Show dives into the common setbacks many startups and small businesses face, how you can avoid them, and elevate to the next level. Check it out.

    112. Making It Happen With Members: What It's Like Stepping Into A Family Gym Business Right Before The COVID Lockdowns (with Montana Rosekelly, Planet Fitness Newcastle)

    112. Making It Happen With Members: What It's Like Stepping Into A Family Gym Business Right Before The COVID Lockdowns (with Montana Rosekelly, Planet Fitness Newcastle)

    Would you agree that some industries were hit harder than the rest during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021? It would've taken a lot of innovation and leadership to keep the businesses in those industries afloat, and to start rebuilding it back up this year. But imagine having to do all of that having just stepped into a business a mere 6 months prior and having 0 business experience on top of that! Well, that's exactly what happened to one of our Elevate Members at The Entourage.

    Montana Rosekelly, the Director of Operations at Planet Fitness Newcastle, had just stepped into her father's business and had just started to achieve good results with the help of The Entourage when COVID shut everything down. How did she not only keep the business afloat but suffer no significant membership loss (industry standard was 10-20% loss during COVID) but also hire an extra 10 employees in 2021?

    This 'Making It Happen with Members' bonus episode for Season 3 of The Make It Happen Show features a spotlight on some of the incredible business journeys of our Members at The Entourage. A raw and authentic look into business owners just like you, this is not one to miss. Check it out.

    110. You Make It Happen: Why Working 100 Hour Weeks Won't Grow Your Business (with Jack Delosa, The Entourage)

    110. You Make It Happen: Why Working 100 Hour Weeks Won't Grow Your Business (with Jack Delosa, The Entourage)

    Tell us if this sounds familiar. Entrepreneur starts business. Entrepreneur has strong intuition and passion to get it off the ground. Business starts growing. Entrepreneur starts doing everything, working 80, 90, 100 hour weeks. Entrepreneur feels stuck and worries they're falling out of love with their business. What should they do?

    This is one of the most common experiences we see at The Entourage. Whether the business owner has reached their absolute capacity or are just starting to feel the struggle a bit too much, it's important to take a step back and understand exactly what is happening and why. That's why we asked our Founder and 5x AFR Young Rich Lister, Jack Delosa, to come on this episode of The Make It Happen Show to teach you exactly how you can go from this reactive and chaotic startup to a business that can run without you always being there.

    If you want to start building a business that can actually scale beyond you, this is the episode for you.

Here are 5 simple but fundamental things every single business owner needs to consider and do if they want to build a million (or multi-million) dollar business shared by Caleb Marshall, the CEO & Co-Founder of Tropeaka, one of the fastest-growing businesses in the health & wellness industry. Having gotten to 8-figures within 3 years and recognised in Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2021, what Caleb shares on this episode of The Make It Happen Show is crucial for every single business owner to listen to.
