#10: Diversifying Revenue Streams and Empowering Your Staff with Kevin Beamon

Kevin Beamon is a leader in the fitness industry space. When I think about fitness entrepreneurs who have built diversified revenue streams, he is the first person that comes to mind. He started as a CrossFit gym then expanding to offer dozens of different types of classes. He is not only a leader in the industry but he is a leader within his staff. About three years ago, he realized that he wanted to offer nutrition services beyond the standard challenge. He signed up for HSN Mentoring and went through the training with his nutrition coach, Jen. Since then they have built an incredible team of five, soon to be six, nutrition coaches. In this podcast, we discuss the road to diversifying revenue streams and most importantly how he has been able to scale his business by empowering his staff.
