Disclaimer: I admit, I first wrote this article about the “7 traits of successful online business owners”…but these apply to bootcamp
owners as well.
I think you’ll agree…
I’ve studied and interviewed a lot of experts over the last 12 years that I’ve been building my business and I’ve found 7 main reasons why other people are so successful:
1) They are confident
This is the underlying foundation of every success story…and on the other hand, a lack of confidence is a common factor in every
struggling biz owner that I meet. I know it’s harsh, but it’s true.
The most confident bootcamp owners who are out there talking up their camps to everyone are the ones with the most clients.
2) They have a driving desire to help others & create amazing content
Every top success story is a go-giver…they realize that to achieve their goals, they must help others succeed too…that’s why you see
the top bootcamp owners giving away such great information.
Plus, bootcamp owners who hold client appreciation functions and who get involved with local charities are the big success stories.
3) They never settle for the status quo.
No matter how big their bootcamps or current location, the top success stories are always looking ahead to the next project and
working to do even better. They are not complacent and realize that they might have to completely re-invent their business in order to grow to the next level.
4) They are lifelong students of self-improvement.
The top 5% of people I’ve ever met have always been the same folks who invest in every resource that is made available. They turn over every rock to find the information they need. That’s the mark of a lifelong student and ultimate success story.
5) They are positive people who attract other amazing people into their life
Successful people draw other successful people to them…this is the law of attraction that I believe in…and it goes back to being confident, being a go-giver, and never settling. Those are the types of people other successful people want to be around.
6) Successful people are entertaining.
They tell amazing stories and let you get to know them, even if it is just through emails and online video. So that’s why you need to
include your personal story in your bootcamp marketing (like my friend Leanne Ellington does).
7) They deliver amazing value to their clients.
Your clients want to be inspired, motivated, encouraged, and shown exactly what to do in order to reach their dreams. And that’s exactly what all top success stories do for their audience. They give, give, give, and it’s always amazing content delivering the highest value for their fans.
Listen, everyone wants to be told exactly what to do…we are all looking for the Blueprint to Success in life…and we want to be told by an expert who has complete confidence in what they are saying.
Doing that is the mark of a top success story…they spell out every action and don’t let any alternative ideas enter the reader’s mind.
So take a look at those 7 reasons why people are mega-success stories and identify where you are strong and where you need improvement.
All of these factors are under YOUR CONTROL to change.
