Episode 15 brings us to an interesting and very practically relevant conversation for all fitness and wellness professionals. Whether you are an owner/operator of a fitness/wellness business, or you're a solo fitness or wellness professional, development and growth are key factors to the health of your clients and your business. In this episode we unpack professional development through the lens of personal development. In fact, as we'll discuss, these two concepts are inextricably linked.

For this discussion we've brought in two people who have been in the trenches for over a decade building a boutique fitness business from one location to three, with all the trials and tribulations that go along with that journey. In this episode you'll hear our guests discuss triumphs they've had in personal development (with themselves and members of their teams) as well as areas they've struggled in. Most importantly, they'll discuss how to learn from their struggles. All in an effort to give you a new perspective on the critical developmental tools you need to accelerate your career, your business and the health of your clients and patients.
