In this episode, Joel speaks to one of his coaches, Liam Walsh. He helps fitness coaches to focus on what they need to do to maximise their income. Enabling them to earn well without having to burn themselves out.
Liam explains what setting up two businesses taught him and how he applied those lessons to what he is doing now. He explains why you must not be afraid to speak up if something does not feel right, ask questions and be willing to push through tough times. As well as how having a plan and executing it consistently enabled him to go from zero clients to earning 13.5K a month, in under 5 months.
Everyone tends to jump from one thing to another, wasting energy by not following through.
Be clear about what you want from your business. How it will benefit you and your family.
When you start a business with someone be clear about what each of you wants from it and set boundaries.
If you are in business and you think something is not right, speak up sooner rather than later. When you don´t everyone wastes lots of time and energy.
Never be afraid to reinvest in yourself to get time back by outsourcing everything that you can.
‘Having a plan laid out…stops them going off on too many tangents and ultimately procrastinating. ´
‘I hate losing. But it´s OK to lose provided you learn from it.’
‘You´ve gotta lean into your discomfort, big-time.’
‘Everything in your business can be passed on (outsourced).’

ABOUT THE HOSTS
Joel Stone is a marketer and disciple of business strategy. After seeing the impact of the 2008 recession, he decided to take control and leave employment to set up business for himself. He quickly built an award-winning design agency, partnering with Andy on numerous projects until they formed Codebreak in 2019.
Having previously helped brands including GlaxoSmithKline, Diageo, Beta Tools, and Channel 4, Joel’s work has been seen all over the world. He takes pride in applying techniques normally reserved for huge corporations to SMEs throughout the UK. Case studies of Joel’s work have featured in Design Week, The Drum, and Social Media Today.
Andy studied Psychology at university, which was his springboard into the world of marketing. He realised that to sell successfully you have to put yourself into the shoes of your customer and understand their why. Andy started his marketing career working closely with dozens of Shropshire businesses, all of whom had something different to sell. During that time, Andy picked up the skills he uses today to tailor each marketing solution to his client´s businesses, the industries they work in, and the different types of customers they need to reach.
