Episode 68 - Charlene Taylor

After becoming a mom, two-time NPC Bodybuilding Champion Charlene started a business and spent less time at the gym—too busy for love or friendship.

Seeing opportunity in the global crisis, Charlene created Social Gym Club, an innovative platform for fitness-focused people to interact and build connection.

3 Key Points

  1. No matter what journey you set off on, whether it’s fitness, a new relationship or starting your first business, get clear on your why. Without a solid sense of direction, you’ll miss opportunities when they appear and struggle to maintain your trajectory. Set your intent and understand your motivations to bring clarity for your path ahead.
  2. We all love playing to our strengths, but we get the best performance results when we fortify our weaknesses. It can be beneficial to hire a professional coach to help you see your blind spots and encourage you through these challenges along the way.
  3. In times of crisis, you can find great opportunity. When your life or your environment changes, needs in the market evolve as well. Charlene recognized a demand for a service she could create, then she took the steps necessary to bring her idea to life.
