Have you ever wanted to take your passion for sports and fitness and transform it into a lucrative business and dream job?
Ben Greenfield had a successful and well paying career as a fitness trainer to the elite. But with twins on the way, he soon realized that trading dollars for hours was not how he wanted to live his life. After making more than $50,000 in less than a week selling one of his first training products, Ben quickly made the transition to creating and selling online services and information products to endurance athletes and fitness fanatics full time.
