Q. Jeff, I need to be sure. Will Boot camp do me
A. Before answering, I want to explain how carefully I consider this
question every time someone asks it. The responsibility I feel by inviting
guests to invest their hard earned money and a week of their life is so
intense that I tend to undersell any individual calling me with this question.
Now, my best answer: yes, Boot Camp will do you a huge amount of good IF:
you are career-minded; able to consider new ideas; and your business is
Q. Are there any folks who should not come to Boot Camp?
A. Yes. I have suggested in the past
and will continue to suggest that the following people do not consider
Boot Camp: (1) those currently moving toward bankruptcy-Boot Camp is not
a quick fix; (2) those who have multiple problems and are denying the
severity of their problems; (3) those who are 'closed-minded' and not
willing to genuinely consider new ways of looking at the world (a la Archie
Bunker). Boot Camp is fundamentally based on concepts requiring one to
inspect their current ways of thinking. Without open-mindedness Boot Camp
will do you zero good.
Q. Jeff, my club is small and yours is so large. No way Boot Camp
can really help me!
A. I cannot overstate this-the size of your club has absolutely
no bearing on what you will get out of Boot Camp. The ENTIRE Boot Camp
effort is dedicated to helping you learn how to build a business which
works for you. It is NOT about building another Queen City Gymnastics.
In fact, you'll hear me speak about systems at my club which I would not
do again and I recommend that others set a different course! Also, keep
in mind that numerous Boot Campers have not even started their clubs and
are in various stages of planning (an approach I applaud and highly recommend).
Q. Jeff, what if after attending I find that BOOT CAMP is one-half
hype and the other half smoke and mirrors?
A. When I tell people that I believe that I should be enriched
only if I have helped someone I mean it. Money is simply not important
enough for me to accept it if I didn't 'do the job', plus some. If you
don't feel Boot Camp gives you value FAR in excess of the cost I will
happily refund your tuition (minus my hard costs of lodging and meals).
Q. I understand Boot Camp is expensive?
A. Absolutely not. In fact, it is inexpensive.
Not only do you get four days of lifetime business solutions, you also
get the BOOT CAMP support manuals and luxury lodging and all ground transportation for those flying into Cincinnati, as well as all meals and an invaluable network of GymClub
associates and friends.
Compare that to the total cost of a national congress which has a few
hit or miss business topics (for congress, don't forget to add in the
cost of your lodging, meals and ground transportation)! If you want lifetime
business solutions there is only one best place to go in the USA...BOOT
Also note: to encourage you to bring a valued partner, key person or spouse-something
which is highly recommended-2nd & 3rd persons from your club receive a
$200 break from tuition.
