Hi, my name is and I co-own my martial arts coaching business with my wife and about nine months ago, she was working a full-time job and I was working multiple jobs to try and make ends meet. Just before purchasing the Sam Ovens Consulting Accelerator, I ended up quitting one of my jobs and going down to just doing the martial arts business full-time to try and make that work. At that time, a friend of ours recommended that we check out Sam's webinar. He said, "This guy's legit. You gotta check him out and see what he has to say."
So I looked at the webinar and we decided, between myself and my wife, that this was something that we really needed to do. It was a big risk for us because we didn't have a lot of money coming in at the time. We were trying to make ends meet, had a little baby boy and were pretty young couple. We jump into the Accelerator and start the training and it wasn't easy, but just decided to stick with it and go end to end, just like Sam was saying, follow the steps one by one.
What stuck out to me the most, and was probably the most beneficial, was the mindset training and the sales coaching and then specifically being able to craft my own higher dollar offers for my specific niche, for martial arts coaching. Since that time, I've been primarily doing that, getting people in the gym through digital marketing, crafting our high dollar offer. We've had more people pay for a year up front, a year in full, at the gym than I had in prior years. In addition to that, I've been able to actually market myself as a consultant to other martial arts gym owners and that's been going pretty well. This year is going to be our first six figure year as a coaching business and so I'm really excited about that.
I'm looking forward to continuing to work with Sam Ovens and take on whatever sort of training he wants to give us because this has really changed our lives from where we were a little while ago to now being able to have two full-time incomes. My wife no longer works a separate job. We both work from home on our coaching business.
So thanks, Sam. Really appreciate it and we're looking forward to continuing to work with you.
