- 86 - The Keys to Lasting Business Success Online with Ben Greenfield
Welcome to another fantastic day on the Healthpreneur Podcast! Today we’ve got another online health business Original Gangster in the house, Ben Greenfield. This is a fun episode because Ben and I have known each other for a while; he’s a health and human performance wiz, cranks out great content, and has hacked the back-end side of business. Not only is he super-cool from a business perspective, but he literally practices what he preaches.
Ben is a triathlete, professional obstacle course racer, speaker, consultant, podcaster, New York Times bestselling author, and loves to self-experiment. His extensive biography isn’t done justice in these lowly Show Notes. Ben is the owner of Ben Greenfield Fitness and the Founder and CEO of Kion, a company that, “empowers all human beings who want to live life to the fullest with every solution necessary for complete mind, body and spirit optimization.” I don’t know about you, but I’m in!
During our conversation, we talked about Ben’s transition out of the traditional brick and mortar and into the online space. We also discussed the need to outsource, delegate, and prioritize – and the entrepreneur’s struggle to want to do it all. Regardless of your current role within your business, chances are you’re doing some things that are best left to professionals. Tune in because Ben drops some excellent bits of advice that could fast track your business to the next level and beyond.
