Meet my business mentor, Markus Gerzi. I first met Markus at a business seminar and since then he’s become one of my biggest influences in operating a business. Are you a gym/ business owner? In this episode we talk about Markus’ company, Gymwright, a platform that helps gym owners build better businesses. We’ll be getting into some of the common myths of being an entrepreneur, misconceptions about owning your own business, and finally his methodologies for experiencing growth, improving customer retention, and learning how to delegate. 

Enjoy the show.
