That’s probably Pat’s other biggest strength compared to a lot of other coaches is he’s really concerned. He’s very concerned with his own family life. He’s going to turn down big opportunities so that he can spend more time with his family and his kid and that resonated with me—somebody with two small kids and a wife—that’s what I want. It’s like you practice what you preach. You know, if I work with a coach that’s working 90 hours a week and they’re super successful but their family doesn’t even know them, I mean that’s not really success to me. But Pat is successful to me because he’s obviously doing really well, he’s helping a ton of people, but he’s still prioritizing those things that are important.
I guess “values” is the right word. Our values are aligned. I think I have very similar values as he does, and I think I just went on a tangent.
It’s been about a year since I started working with Pat, only a year, and the results have been phenomenal from a numbers standpoint. The biggest thing has been our profit margin. The previous year I saw a lot of growth, but I’d just opened up a brand new facility so of course I’m going to be able to generate more revenue. But I was already doing well and we were already doing well and we then we saw a 25% increase in our net income. The business was taking home and making 25% more which is phenomenal.
Our gross revenue is set to be about somewhere between 10 and 12% growth, which is also really great. But I think the bigger takeaway for me is the whole thing of it’s not what you make it’s what you keep that really matters.
