Ellen Latham never set out to build a billion dollar fitness empire with more than a million customers and thousands of exercise studios around the world. But at the age of 54, that’s exactly what she did.
In today’s episode, Ellen Latham, the founder and co-owner of Orangetheory Fitness, describes her humble beginnings in Niagara Falls, N.Y. and the unexpected turn of events that led to the creation and growth of one of the most successful franchises in America. Ellen talks about being fired from her “dream job” as a single mother in her 40s, and why it was arguably the best thing to ever happen to her career.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS…
- Why getting comfortable with discomfort is the key to achieving ultimate success.
- What “momentum shift” is and why it’s the cornerstone of every great achievement.
- How Ellen found the courage to start Orangetheory Fitness in her 50s and the fears she had to overcome.
- The Orangtheory framework that can be applied to business and life.
- And much, much more…
