The week after New Year’s is when we really put the previous year behind us and fully plant our feet into the next. It’s also a time when we have the highest hopes for good and happiness. Let’s keep that with us for all of 2013.
No matter what comes your way, I know you, and you can handle it. Whether it becomes the best year you’ve ever had or the most challenging, you’ve got this! Why? Because being a Gold’s Gym owner and entrepreneur takes guts. I believe you are born that way – not something you sorta grasp or learn as you move through life. It’s inherent in your heart and soul to be special and to also make others shine and become the person they never thought they could be.
You’ve heard me say it, but you wake up every day to make a difference somewhere, somehow with someone. Vow to remember this as you move through your daily complexities and hurdles. There is a plethora of things that try to interrupt our goals and plans, but your calling is much bigger and you are much more formidable to allow for disruption.
And also remember that you are not alone. We are all here together as kindred spirits wanting to lift each other up if needed or to provide that standing ovation if deserved. I hear this from those that observe Gold’s Gym Franchisees all the time. It’s not just something that we all recognize but the world does. Isn’t that just a cool thing! It’s as close to a biological link as we can get….it’s a link of the mind, compassion, kindness, affection, courage and character. This is what makes us independent.
So, bring it on Mr. 2013! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for us as individuals, for our relatives..…and as the Gold’s Gym family.
The GGFA is heard and respected as the unified voice of all franchisees. We are involved in all decisions that affect our brand and the franchisees. It is our goal to secure Gold’s Gym as the most profitable franchising opportunity in the fitness industry and the number one fitness brand in the world.
We serve as advocates for all franchisees to help them maximize the profitability and stability of their businesses.
