The Faster You Take Action the More Success You Are Likely to Have (Interview With Scott York)

Scott York escaped from his corporate job 20 years ago and has been helping athletes become bigger, faster, and stronger out of his garage gym ever since. His goal is to educate and motivate high school and college athletes to maximize their playing years by becoming stronger, physically, and mentally.


Business Mistakes:
“A mistake that I made that really slowed my journey was not automating my billing system. What I mean by that is I had started a Boot Camp, which was really popular or just becoming popular around 2005, at parks, so you had military-style boot camps and then you had more fun or recreational types of boot camps, I’m talking about fitness boot camps where you get people in shape, your average people out there, not athletes just your regular people. So when I started, my first mistake was not automating my payment system. I collected checks and cash each month rather than implementing an autopay system. I became a bill collector. I spent more time doing that instead of actually being a fitness professional”

Best Advice to Other Entrepreneurs:
“Follow your passion… Find a mentor. I think a really good one also public speaking… If you want to live the fullest life you are going to have to step outside of yourself and put yourself in those types of situations… Toastmasters helped me… Learning public speaking because you are going to have to do it just like I am doing right now, just like you are doing. And there are going to be opportunities in your life as you get better at your craft, at your job that people are going to want you to speak. And it’s going to help you if you can really polish that, polish your public speaking”
