Introducing Tristan Wright Today's guest shows that it is possible to combine a passion in sports and and create something amazing. He is the founder of evolve to grow where he now shows business owners across the world how to create a business that doesn't end up running them. And he did this himself by turning a sporting passion into a global operation turning over seven figures while providing the kind of personal and professional flexibility many people dream of? Is this possible for most of us to do? Well as he says "I’m here to tell you that yes, it’s possible for your business, too (with the right approach and plenty of passion and determination, of course!). When I started my first business – cycling clothing company Seight – I was entering an incredibly tough retail environment. Many of my competitors were major players and were already well established in the marketplace, so achieving cut-through and a profitable market share were just some of the many challenges I faced. How The Dots Joined Up For Tristan And yet just a few short years later my business was turning over more than $300,000, and all while I was yet to give up my previous day job. Fast forward another couple of years and my business had hit the magical seven-figure turnover mark and was running almost on autopilot, allowing me to work on what I wanted To combine a business and a passion and grow them into a profitable enterprise with a major following both locally and internationally is something I’m immensely proud of. Now I’m proud to say I’m helping other small business owners to do all this and more. Some have taken their business ideas from seed to fruition and are now running highly profitable operations, while others have grown their business and processes to a point that has enabled them to take extended holidays while their business runs itself. It seems to me that this man has the same logic and viewpoint as myself and Join Up Dots. Whats the point of creating a business that doesn't then give you the freedom to escape and live the life you want? So does he look back and think that it was obvious the way that he went about it, or simply a series of lucky breaks? And where do most people go wrong when they start their own business? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Tristan Wright Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty subjects with Tristan Wright such as: Why it is so important to find a market that you have the most knowledge on before you ever try to do something new. We discuss why affiliate marketing is such a hard thing to make a living from due to the amount of traffic you need to gain those important clicks. Tristan shares why the first thing that people should do is start building a community, and the nurture those pain points. And lastly....... We both share our route to business burnout and why Tristan now tells his clients to book time off each 90 days.
