Small Business Saturday: What does it mean to run a small business?

Today is known as Small Business Saturday, and I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on what it means to run a small business. If you train with us, please take a moment to share this post and say what you like about Barbell Strategy to help others learn about us.

A small business is local. We truly get to be a part of our community by being business owners. We love running into you at the grocery store. We love providing a service to our neighbors.

A small business is personal. We know every person that comes in. There are no nameless, faceless customers. We work to adjust our programming to work for each person and their goals. We care about everyone's progress.

A small business is hard work. There are not really any days off. No two week vacations, no calling in sick. When you're committed to your business, you are all in.

A small business is fun. We love being part of your path to fitness. We love teaching and learning. We love seeing our community grow and people make connections.

A small business is a long journey. It requires patience, flexibility, determination, and more patience. When you're in the real world outside the tech bubble, success takes time.

Thank you, and see you in the gym!
