Good Things Take Time
I have this message hanging on the wall in my home office – I have it there to remind me that the fight is worth it.
Fuck. Some days….if I am being honest, I feel impatient and hopeless. Growing this business over the past 10 years has been the hardest thing I have ever done. The roller coaster ride – the long days, the financial uncertainty, the mistakes, the disappointment, and the struggle are sometimes too much. But, it is ALL of these reasons that make me wake up every day and push ahead. I know that building this service-based, consumer-focused business is going to take TIME – time to nurture my customers, time to learn, time to implement ideas, time to make changes in people’s lives.
And I love every minute of it.
Despite the fear and struggle, I truly love it. I hope every person who enters the doors of BMF Fitness feels the love.
As I type this, I am looking out the window of our “temporary space” ( where the gym has lived for the past 13 months while we patiently waited for the new gym to be built) at our new building. It is being constructed before our very eyes and how exciting it is!! To see our future before us is exhilarating and terrifying at the same time.
We will soon be in our 5200 sqft new home – where we will have the freedom to add more, do more, and be more for our customers. And if I am being honest, I have SO much more to give – I can’t fucking wait to get in there and make it all happen!!
We will celebrate 10 years in business in 60 days – The past 10 years have made us what we are and (although a bit bias) what we are is FAMILY – all this time, we haven’t just been building a business – a gym – a place to exercise – we have been building a fierce, loving, supportive, badass FAMILY of people who would do anything for each other, who show up every day and give their best (even when they have nothing left to give), and who are the reason why we take the time, do the work, and give all we have.
We are the BLASTERS and we are definitely a GOOD THING!!
