Salvere Blog: Be Willing to Change Direction, 20 Year Reflections

December 23, 2019
Through 20 years in business, I experienced 911 within 2 years of starting; then the economy downturn right after I opened the studio; then a lawsuit for copyright infringement from a company in Ohio shortly after that while simultaneously opening a non profit; then moving locations and, finally, working thru the process of multiple lease renewals.

How many times do you remember experiencing something that didn’t quite make your original plan? Reflecting, during each one of these major situations I remember immediately thinking “forget this” as I didn’t know what to do.
As I stepped back, I realized that taking some time and processing the circumstances provided perspective on various directions to take things. Often, these unplanned events sent from the universe actually created new opportunities.
Whether business or life, we can only plan so much — how do we prepare and keep a mindset that the unexpected happens more often then we think?

Salvere Blog: Sometimes Things Find You, 20 Year Reflections

November 19, 2019
Early in my business, I thought I wanted to train athletes. You know that high intensity, hard, work til failure stuff. I got there, tried it out and thought, hmm, not to sure about this.
Universe Quotes
During my quest to start my own business, I connected with a trainer doing some different things in fitness. Namely, training women during and after breast cancer treatment. I never knew this existed much less thought it a fit for me.
So naturally, I said yes!! It took some time to learn from her and I eventually started working with a few of her clients. As a jock at 25 years old, my lack of life experience ended up being the beginning of something I never imagined.
My lesson from this, sometimes we stay so focused on what we “planned” to happen that we miss the universe sending something else our way. As I reflect on this, now and at various other times throughout the last 20 years, I see it over and over, in places other than business too. Can any of you think of a time this happened in your life??

20 years down
Wow, 2019 starts the 20th year of the personal training business adventure. Thinking back to all the years, clients, connections with other professionals and various opportunities gave me a chance to reflect on how each of these brought loads of learning experiences!!
This week, I wanted to share the ones that stand out the most with all of you. As I read the list, I realized that these can apply to any of lifes journeys. Here it goes:
— Sometimes things find you, it’s okay to go with it!
— If it ain’t broke, break it (goes against the lessons all those other years)
— Stay true to yourself, especially when the world challenges you
— People are more then a simple transaction
— It’s okay to say “I don’t know”
— Surrounding yourself with others helps you grow and learn
— Think and exist outside the box
— Take time for yourself
— Continuously reflect
— Be willing to veer off the expected path
— Be patient
— Trust (and even appreciate!) the journey
Over the year, we will expand on a few of these in future blog posts! Thank you all for your support, encouragement, feedback and energy over the years. Looking forward to 20+ more!!!
