This morning I attended a TLC Networking Breakfast (always a lot of great energy!) and then it was full speed ahead! I LOVE the energy of networking and connecting with like minded people so I make a point to seek out opportunities each month and put them into my schedule.
I often observe people worrying about “the competition” and sense they are reluctant to share when they meet folks who are engaged in the same type of business. Having run a successful Jazzercise franchise for over twenty years, I had endless questions over the years about the new Curves opening up, or the Zumba craze, or the Planet Fitness basement pricing, and did I think that hurt my business.
I truly believe that the “pie” is unlimited. If you approach business (and life) as if there is limited pie, then if you get a big piece of pie (or success) then that means there won’t be as much left for anyone else. However, if you view the pie as being UNLIMITED, there will be PLENTY of pie for EVERYONE. We can all WIN! AND we can win beyond our greatest expectations when we share. It’s just so darn cool how that happens.
So yes, I believe there is plenty of room for Jazzercise, Curves, Zumba, you name it! Do you still see people walking around that are in need of exercise? I rest my case. As a newbie MELT practitioner I had someone say to me recently that they hoped no one else gets certified in this area any time soon. Why not? I’m pretty sure there will always be people experiencing pain (and aging), so the more practitioners who can help, the merrier! Plus a great opportunity for MORE sharing!
Now, I suddenly have a craving for pie.
