Eye Opening and Inspirational

Gordon opens your eyes to the reality of operating a successful MA business. The structure is clearly laid out in a motivational manner designed to make you take action. Gordon's own reflection on his MA journey let's you know your not alone and your dream is possible with hard work and a solid plan of consistency.
I couldn't recommend this enough and have since purchased a hard copy and attended his workshop.

Listen to it, read it, take Action!

The Book I had been looking for.

As a Martial Arts Instructor with a particular niche I had struggled to make the the standard business advice for martial arts business work for me.

This book covers every step needed to run a martial arts school. Most importantly the social media and class launch structure has worked wonders for me.

one of its biggest strengths is the fact Gordon is British as many a business Guru in MA is American and the culture difference means most information is useless.

Gordon explains everything very well and the story told throughout the book resonates with myself as I have been in similar situations.

I would recommend this audiobook and paperback to any MA instructor hoping to start teaching and improving other people's lives.
