“I had no online training experience before taking OTA. I have been a freelance personal trainer for over 4 years. My business model had pretty much maxed out in 2018. I was working 10-12 hour days 6 days a week. I was exhausted and had very little time for my husband, our new dog, or any kind of a social life. I knew I needed to make a change to my business model. When I found OTA, it sounded like the perfect fit. It stood out from all the 6-figure coaches who promised endless streams of cash instantly. Just like in fitness, there are no quick fixes, so I chose OTA, and it was the best decision I made.

Right away I knew I had made the right choice because it forced me to get past each bottleneck issue that I was having previously. Before OTA, when I would get stuck on something, I would move on to something else, telling myself I would come back to it. Nothing ever got completed.

By the time I was finished the course, I had everything that I needed to launch my online coaching business.

After a week of pondering my launch, I made the jump and announced by new business on my social media accounts – Facebook and Instagram. I then implemented the “I’m looking for 5…” strategy just last week. I got 30 leads within 24-hours! Of those, 12 have booked a call to discuss my programs. Of the 10 calls I have made to date, 5 have signed on for a 3-month package, with another 2 committing to start in April. One week in and I have already made back my investment in OTA and then some. I was absolutely not expecting such a quick start, but at the same time, I feel like OTA provided me with all the skills that I need to confidently handle my new clients. Having all of the systems I need already in place is proving to be an absolute time and stress saver!

I understand that this is only the beginning and that there’s a lot of work ahead to grow my new business, but I couldn’t be happier with the great start I’ve had. The amazing part is that I haven’t even scratched the surface when it comes to implementing strategies to attract new clients. 3 months ago I was lost with no direction – and now I feel like the sky is the limit!”
