How this Illinois Gym Owner Opened his Dream Gym

Pictured here is one of my founding members for my Mastermind, Ryan Thilgen and his wife Marla. 

They recently opened the doors to their new amazing facility.

It takes a lot of courage to expand, especially to the degree that Ryan has. 

It is risky.

It is safer to stay in a small facility and have one team member.

It’s safer because you have everything under control and its more comfortable. 

But, to quote PT Barnum, the founder of the Barnum and Bailey circus, “Comfort, the enemy of progress”.

I believe in free choice. You should have the business you want. Many times staying small and being comfortable is the bigger risk.

Ryan took a risk to create something bigger and better than what he had. It will push him to get better in every aspect of his life. 

It will force him to manage his time better, manage his finances better and become a leader.

These skills will enable him to build a business that creates safety and security for his family.

I usually can tell when people have the juice to push through the fear, Ryan has proved that to me. 

It won’t be easy but I am sure the support from our group will give him that extra edge he needs to make this a massive success.
