Mike Bledsoe: The Hardest Thing I Ever Had To Do In Business — The Strong Coach #19


Empowering the body-mind connection is an absolute must in Mike’s world. A lifetime of athletics and training, along with being a coach and entrepreneur for the last decade, he has tapped into parts of himself that were once unknown.
Simultaneously competing in the sport of weightlifting, coaching national caliber athletes, running a 7 figure business with 20+ employees, and hosting the #1 rated Fitness & Nutrition podcast on iTunes (Barbell Shrugged) took a lot personal growth just to keep up.

After hitting the ceiling of capacity many times over he discovered and distilled the processes that create the greatest expansion for capacity and growth.

In the last year Mike launched The Strong Coach, a program for personal professional development for coaches, which has already begun transforming the way coaches interact with their clients and build their businesses. He is also in the process of building a new brand called Enlifted. It is a mindset program for athletes and coaches.
Mike is a US Navy veteran, holds a degree in Health & Human Performance, and has accumulated numerous health & fitness certifications. He spent the last 7 years traveling the world interviewing the top athletes, coaches, scientists, and researchers to find what creates a successful athlete and entrepreneur. Through the journey of studying what they do, to the underlying principles their actions are based upon, to digging deeper to find what is actually creating success, he has found clear distinctions and practices that separate those who live an optimized lifestyle from the rest of the crowd.

In this episode Danny interviews Mike about the hardest thing Mike’s ever had to do in business, what happens when you create from inspiration, Mike’s current projects and why they are all successful, the power of asking for help, why you need to be paying your coach more than what you charge your clients, why focusing on where you’re going, not how you’re going to get there, will lead you to where you’re supposed to be, and much more.
