Did you know the questions you ask yourself can have more impact on your success than knowing the right answers?
For example: Spending a week asking yourself whether your sessions should be at 6:00 or 6:30 will leave you feeling worn out without much to show for it. If you spent that same week instead asking yourself what you’d like to help your clients achieve in 5 years, you’d end up with a much better idea of where you are going.
In this episode Dale and I (Kyle) talk about the difference between high quality and low quality questions.
I share some stories about getting stuck on low-level questions and what I did to move forward and Dale shares 6 amazing high quality questions he asks himself each day.
We then finish off the pod by answering a bunch of common questions so that you don’t have to spend lots of time thinking about them:
- How long is the best session? 45 minutes or 60 minutes or another time? (thanks Peter from Wales) [skip to 14:40]
- What is the best course to do for trainers? (Or place to get qualified as a trainer?) [skip to 18:20]
- What is a good system/software for tracking my clients? [skip to 21:00]
- Should I offer a free trial? [skip to 22:50]
- After this is all over, what is a good way to set up a hybrid offering for my sessions (virtual sessions and face to face)? [skip to 26:30]
- What is a good formula for a 12-week challenge? [skip to 29:45]
- How do I get noticed? [skip to 34:05]
- How can I help clients with their nutrition? [skip to 36:55]
