Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

I think a lot of why some people are having a hard time with this is because it seems to be predicated on a lot of "If's" going a certain way...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

HQ has already said they'd be against that idea as well. Sorry. They want control to be in Greg's hands alone (understandable).

@Jon Gilson

Informative.

Factual.

To the point.

Devoid of accusations/unnecessary emotional baggage.

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

We can agree that Coach Glassman has stated that publicly.

We can also agree that Lauren Glassman has stated that she believes selling to Anthos over another party was the best decision for...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Small List of Speculated Possible Reasons:

1. She hates him and wants to stick it to him.

2. They (Anthos) offered money in a more advantageous time frame.

3. She felt she couldn't trust...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

No...they'd lose the Crossfit branding.

If your entire business hinges on being called Crossfit XYZ, then that looks like a much bigger issue to worry about right now.

Update:

Space 2's rent is $1050 and will go up every year by $100.
Space 2's security deposit is $2000.

Re: SBA Loan Amounts

Hoping $ 10,000 in the bank and a Jeep for collateral will be useful. Of course the first step is getting the business plan finished and immaculate.
