When Amanda Tress created her virtual online bootcamp, she was one of the few people who went online without having had an offline fitness business first. Today, she teaches thousands of clients how to burn fat and live a healthier lifestyle online.
I met Amanda in Ali Brown’s premier group and invited her as my guest this week because I was always inspired by her energy, her confidence and the way she was growing her business.
Even though she was working in digital marketing, Amanda says she always had a passion for fitness and nutrition and was working at the gym during her lunch breaks, on evenings and weekends when she wasn’t in the office. When her oldest child was two years old, she was working 80 hours a week and started to feel guilty.
Amanda decided that she wanted to spend more time with her family and quit her marketing job. She also wanted to focus on her passion and realized that she could use her career expertise to create an online course combining nutrition and workouts. She convinced 11 clients to sign up and by the end of the program, they all thrived. “We were on to something and we needed to get the word out there,” Amanda remembers. She turned her 11 clients into her affiliates and that’s where her success began.
Today, Amanda is known for her program FASTer Way to Fat Loss. In the past 24 months, she went from making $1 million to $50 million in revenue.
In this episode of the Sigrun Show, she speaks about her mission to help women in the wellness business scale their businesses and explains her business model. If you ever wondered how you can set up a membership for your own business, this interview with Amanda is for you.
We discuss how Amanda cracked the code to be successful in the online world and looking back, what she would do differently today.
