My guest, multi-millionaire author fitness guru and serial entrepreneur Peter Taunton got an opportunity to run a fitness gym on a dare, and with no experience and a tiny salary of just $16,000, he eventually ran out of money, almost ready to give up.

But with an assurance from his mother and surprisingly some much-needed cash flow the very next day, his intuition had him combine his work ethic, a humble nature, the ability to establish trusted relationships and personal integrity to grow that single location to over 6,000 and becoming a behemoth in the fitness space, going from literally nothing in his bank account to over 9 figures in revenues.
