Instilling the Owner’s Mentality into your organization through profit sharing”

by Andrew Simpson

You want 3 things:

  1. You want your team members to hustle like you do
  2. You want them to treat the business like it is theirs
  3. You want to be surrounded all day long by eagles who soar next to you

The problem is, most fitness business owners do not have compensation plans that lead to those three results. This session will empower you to be the uncommon leader others crave to work for, and equip you with the tools you need to build a profit sharing plan and an owner’s mentality culture.

Andrew Simpson founded Player’s Fitness and Performance in Frederick, MD during the Summer of 2013. He has been a competitive athlete his entire life. Sports are in his blood. He discovered he had a passion for Exercise Science, Nutrition, and Human Performance in 2010 and decided to blend this with his love for athletics.

He and his team have been blessed with the responsibility to mentor and develop hundreds of middle and high school students in the Frederick area. Andrew’s mission is to inspire youth to live uncommon lives and to be bold enough to become extraordinary leaders.
