Re: Looking for 1st year membership growth numbers from you.

I would remember to work smarter, not harder.

With increase membership comes the needs for more room, equipment, class times, trainers, etc.

Consider your expenses....And find how many members you need to break even. That's your first goal.

An owner of an affiliate with 200+ members may only profit 4-5K/mon if they don't spend wisely and keep expenses under control.
You can also be very profitable with 75 members, and will allow you some freedom away from your affiliate.

Don't be fooled. Out of 3000+ affiliates, I'd be shocked if more than 50% of them are profitable in the first year. People may bring more people, but not necessarily more dollars. Dollars pay bills.
