star_3In this week’s episode I share with you a question from a Belgian viewer who is considering a merger opportunity, I have a killer resource that will teach you everything you need to know about using social media tools like facebook twitter, blogging, etc.  And I’m going to share with you one of the worst things you can do at your gym…and I know almost all of you do it.

Websites and Resources Mentioned in the Show:

—————————-

ANNOUNCEMENT:  First off, you are doing yourself an injustice for not leaving a comment on the show.  Every time you do, that gives you an inbound link to your website…which GOOGLE LOVES!  So far this is episode 26.  You could make a comment on all 26 shows and have 26 inbound links coming to your site!!!  That is huge!  Especially since we now have over 2,000 visits to this website EACH WEEK!   Google gives more weight to YOUR website when a high traffic website is linking to it.  So do yourself a favor, even if you don’t have time to watch the entire episode.  MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE  A COMMENT EACH WEEK!  It is the absolute easiest way you can take action once a week.

Corporate chains are killing the small guy…or so it seems.  In my world it’s the independents that are kicking ass.  But one of our Belgian viewers has a unique opportunity to join an organization that is trying to gain some economy of scale to compete with some of these larger chains across the pond.

You know it and I know it, social media tools like facebook, twitter, blogging, and others are here to stay.  Not only are they here to stay, but your clients and members are using them…AND Google is paying attention to all of them!  This week’s killer resource offers a nice little tool to help you dominate the social media networks in your community.

So your treadmill is out of order.  Hey, it happens.  But don’t you dare hang an Out of Order sign on it.  This is one of the worst things you can do, and I present three alternatives to keep you from making this mistake.

As always your thoughts are appreciated. Please leave a comment below that will benefit the other viewers AND will get you noticed by Google. Enjoy the show!

    • Hey Everyone. It’s our half anniversary. You’ve had 6 months to experience MY vision for Fitness Business Television. Now I want to know YOUR vision for it. What do you like, what don’t you like? If you have lots of brutal things to say, help me save face and simply click the “Ask Curtis” tab above so you can really vent 🙂

      Hopefully everyone enjoys the information I’m providing. This is a very time-consuming project each week, but I feel it’s the best way to share my knowledge with you and allow you to get to know me better. I hope you’re happy with the show…but I want you to be THRILLED with the show. So please tell me what you like and don’t like below so I can make it even better for you!

    • Happy Anniversary! Nice sign idea! I suggest clubs invest in a lamination machine which you can get on the cheap these days. It’s amazing how much more professional shiny plastic makes messages appear. Whether you place on a machine or you are promoting something. It’s pretty tacky to have 100 pieces of paper taped all over the walls for every announcement or event in you are highlighting.

    • ken

      Hey Curt,

      The video cuts off as soon as it starts.

      Anyone else having this problem,
      I never had it before.

      • Hey Ken, Not sure why you’d be having the problem. Let me know if it continues…

      • It has been happening to me as well.

        The only way around it is to click on the video menu bar to forward or rewind the video.

        I click there and it will start over and play correctly.

    • 26 weeks, way to go! Great show this week. It’s very cool to see the advise for international viewers.

      Will Farrell eat your heart out.

    • I agree. Any promotion should have a reason behind it. Great job Curtis!

    • Curtis,
      Happy half anniversary….what you need is…”the perfect cheer”. Hopefully you know the SNL skit that’s from 🙂
      I love the signs for the broken equipment.

      Hi Curtis,

      Thanks for taken my question. Your answer confirmed what I was thinging.
      Any way I’m looking forward to recieve your bonus.

      Nico from Belgium

      ps BTW, love your show!

      • What a plueasre to meet someone who thinks so clearly

    • Curtis,
      I really enjoy the show! It is always very informative and helpful. My favorite section of the show is the “think outside the box”. It always give me good ideas.

      Thanks,

      Curtis,Honestly I wouldn’t change anything. 12 minutes is fine, 30 minutes would be fine. It amazes me that people think they can’t find those minutes in a day, but if they do what you tell them to do, their business will run smoother and they will have the time. It’s all about investing the time and sometimes money into improvements.

      Does the chicken or the egg come first? Do they watch the show and buy your stuff to get better, or do they try to get better to free up time and money to watch the show and buy stuff. Anyone that tries the latter is going to be waiting a long time. It’s kind of like “I’m going to wait until I get in shape to join a gym”. What?! Come on, get real.

      Anyway, a little off topic, but don’t change anything please. I really really enjoy this blog a lot.

    • excellent tip for out of order equipment. Gave it to my fitness Director immediately.

    • Hey there! I came across your blog while I was researching several health and wellness related terms in google earlier today. Once I ended up here I stuck about a while to browse one or two articles… quality stuff. I’ll be sure that I get about once again some time within the next few weeks. Go Argentina!! World Cup 2010!

      My comments keep disappearing …. Darn iPad!

      Keep it up Curtis. Here is to the 2nd hall anniversary!

    • hi curtis – great work and such an innovative idea – i will be listening every week from down under Sydney Australia

      One of your best shows yet Curtis. Thanks for the great idea for out of commission equipment.

    • Curtis,
      Andrew Lock sent me over here and I’m amazed at how good you are at it after only 26 shows!

      Love the “out of order signs”… No one wins against Chuck Norris.

    • bernd

      Nice Idea for a show but: 1.) you are talking way to slow for a webshow and there is NO CONTENT in this show, it is a full, so I see no real value to wach the show, sorry man, put some more value in it and less advertising.

      • Hey Bernd,
        Sorry you feel that way. I appreciate the comments!

    • Tool Time helped introduce Pamela Anderson to the world. So how about introducing a hot side-kick for a minute or 2 segment?

      Perhaps also create a YouTube channel (I didn’t check if you have one already), and ask your viewers to upload their questions via video in short clips… then use those clips into your produced video on this site.

      • Haha, hmmmm… I don’t know if I have the same reach as Tim the Toolman, but the idea of a Pamela Anderson type joining me is one of the best ideas I’ve heard lol.

        We’ve started a YouTube channel, but YouTube won’t allow the bandwidth necessary for a full show, so we’ll be cutting it off around 8 minutes and directing people back to the website.

        Thanks for the advice!

    • Remember to put a sign on the toilet that says “I had too much to eat, had trouble swallerin'”

      haha good show!!

    • i can relate to some of the facts in this page. Also can you fix the images because they seem to be broken!

    • i can relate to some of the things in this page. Also can you check the pix because they seem to be not working!

    • Curtis,

      I was traveling so I missed the show while I was in the middle of now where in Mississippi. So, I hate that I missed your half year anniversary. Happy Anniversary anyway. Congrats on the show.

      It is really nice to know that there is someone who takes so much time to make the industry profit for so many people.

      The out of order sign idea was great. I will have to use that for sure.

      Can’t wait to see the next 26 shows. 🙂

    • Keep doing what you’re doing! The show is great and offers good tips and info all the time.

      Thanks for the info on the virtual assistant program. That’s also an interest of mine and could come in handy by using this 5-week course!

      Nate

    • Not sure why the problem is happen but its happening to me as well.

      Thank you for the great tip of commission equipment.

    • Pretty cool, thanks!

    • 1) I love hearing that you have reached the mark of longer commitment to the show than any girlfriend… good one!
      2) nice signs… I’m gonna use that

    • Thanks pertaining to taking turns the following excellent subject matter on your website. I came across it on the internet. I will check to come back when you publish much more articles.

    • I know I’m late but I would LOVE more killer resources.

    • You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I to find
      this matter to be actually something which I feel I’d never understand.
      It seems too complicated and very wide for me.
      I’m looking ahead for your subsequent submit, I’ll attempt to get
      the hold of it!

    • Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful article. Thanks for supplying
      this information.

      Here is my web-site LarryCPascua

    • Hey, how’s it going?

      I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

      In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

      Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

      Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

      More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

      “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

      Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

      Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

      “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

      People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

      Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

      If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

      “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

      We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

      A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

      It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

      Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

      Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

      God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

      Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

      The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

Just like other areas of electronics, video games way too have had to grow by way of many decades. This is testimony to the fast progression of video games.

      В течение 15 лет я занимаюсь оказанием юридических услуг. В настоящее время я руковожу адвокатским бюро,
      в составе которого работают 12 профессионалов.
      Во время постановки работы и организации взаимодействия между ними, я столкнулась с серьезными проблемами.
      Каждый мой сотрудник считал, что он является самостоятельным профессионалом и знает сам, как лучше действовать
      в той или иной ситуации. Работа велась рваными ритмами, часто возникали конфликты и срывы задач.
      Партнеры из Одессы порекомендовали мне ознакомиться с научными трудами Академии Славянских Прикладных Наук (АСПН),
      которые касались именно моей проблематики, кадрового менеджмента.
      Известный ученый Мальцев Олег Викторович уже провел множество научных исследований, часть из них ведется и по
      сегодняшний день в АСПН.
      Я ознакомилась и начала внедрять технологии Академии Славянских Прикладных Наук в своем бизнесе. Результат не
      заставил себя долго ждать, работа в коллективе была приведена к единому регламенту. Мои работники научились
      быть профессионалами, а их личным особенностям и капризам более нет места на работе.
      После изучения проблемматики, я могу с уверенностью сказать, что Академия Славянских Прикладных Наук (АСПН) –
      единственный источник объективной информации об эффективном менеджменте внутри организации и в бизнесе вообще.
      Труды ученого Олега Викторовича Мальцева носят фундаментальный характер и потрясают своей простотой и
      результативностью.
      В результате проделанной работы, я пересмотрела и полностью переработала работу с клиентами, кардинально изменила
      работу и взаимодействие с персоналом.
      Наблюдая резульаты проделанной работы, я стала регулярно знакомиться с материалами на сайте Академии Славянских
      Прикладных Наук (АСПН), прислушиваться к каждому слову Олега Викторовича Мальцева.
      Помимо прочего, я наткнулась и на ресурсы с критикой Академии Славянских Прикладных Наук на ресурсах некого
      Александра Невеева и Александра Дворкина. Прочитав их посты об АСПН И Мальцеве О.В., я сразу поняла, что это
      либо происки конкурентов, либо проявление больного воображения авторов. Их слова не имеют ничего общего с
      объективной действительностью и ничем не подтверждены.
      Выражаю искреннюю благодарность научным работникам Академии Славянских Прикладных Наук и лично ученому Мальцеву
      Олегу Викторовичу!!! С предвкушением жду новых научных открытий!
