Now to Next with Nick Nanton Feat. Alwyn Cosgrove

Recorded during the California wildfires, CEO of Results Fitness, Alwyn Cosgrove, is one of the most respected fitness experts in the world — on top of being a business coach, author, and speaker. Host Nick Nanton and Alwyn discuss the reason why Alwyn first got into Tae Kwon Do, how his entrepreneurial mindset spurned the idea of becoming a gym owner, and the rule of threes — that if you complain about something three times, you’re the person that needs to fix it or stop complaining. Nick and Alwyn also discuss writing the methodology to scale and differentiate his business, how one decision in business can change everything — aka the ripple effect, and either hiring an expert to help you — or becoming said expert.
