Show Notes

As a business owner, are you one to hop on every opportunity that comes your way?

Or maybe you have a difficult time saying “no” to certain things that come up because you don’t want to “miss out.”

I know this feeling, because I’ve been there… MANY TIMES. In fact, it’s something that I still struggle with.

If you’re in the same boat, this episode with Karl Jacobson will get you thinking just a little bit differently about all that.

Karl started his professional career as a personal trainer with big goals and aspirations. However, after accomplishing many of the goals he set for himself, something was mising. This sent Karl on a journey to find his next big challenge in life, helping other personal trainers break free from the 9-5.

In the episode, Karl shares his story, along with tips and strategies he used, so you can also find your mission and lead a much happier and more fulfilling life.
