109. When Preparation Meets Opportunity - An Interview with Eric Chessen

Your Fitness Money Coach Podcast

05-04-2022 • 40 mins

I have a unique interview today with Eric Chessen. It’s kind of crazy that I did BJJ with Eric over 20 years ago, lost touch, and here he is on my podcast!

A lot has happened to both of us in those 20 years.

I’m excited to bring this interview to you today because of Eric’s unique perspective.

We discussed his experience doing a Tedx talk - everything from how it came about to lessons learned.

Eric also has a really unique and specialized niche, Autism Fitness. Don’t tune out if you're not interested in working with this population. One of the best ways to learn is from people who are doing different things, as many of the lessons transfer over.

Finally, Eric has patented two types of gym equipment and he shares his experience in the fitness equipment manufacturing industry. Cool stuff!

The most important thing I want you to get out of it is how much of Eric’s success wasn’t planned out. He simply worked hard and took advantage of opportunities as they came along. For example, he started his own certification but not until he has years of experience under his belt!

Enjoy the show and as always, thanks for tuning in!
