One thing I find myself consistently saying to new coaches or those that have relocated is to seek out and work with complimentary coaches/trainers.

When I was starting over after leaving the academy world, my biggest advantage was working closely with a very well known mental trainer. He referred me a couple athletes and truly, the rest was history. From there we consistently teamed up not only with individuals but we also used our combined resources to do clinics and group training.

This mindset also led to looping in a fitness/nutrition expert to round out our team. Now there are obvious training benefits to building a team but I’d love to hear if you’ve been successful on the business side by taking this approach.

Thanks for sharing!
