Late night TV is great. I can watch reruns of Cheers or better still watch Christie Brinkley and Chuck Norris wax poetic about my good friends at Total Gym. But best of all, I get to see before and after pics of people who have bought the P90X DVD workout set for not $250, not $219, but just two payments of $69 plus S&H. And it was the P90X that really grabbed my attention. Why? Because It occurred to me that for the first time, in a long time, people are buying the truth.
What we can learn from P90X

Behind every great gym owner is…
I love walking the gym floor with owners. Over the last 5 years, I’ve been inside at least 500 gyms. And all owners are really the same…They literally become a mix between Rainman and Seinfeld. And I say that in a good way. Really in a great way. You guys spend so much time, effort and energy you know exactly what’s going on in your gym and you notice everything that most people miss.

The Hidden Stories in out of office emails
Every week, when we send out our FMG, we get stats on how many people open the email, how many click thru, etc. It’s reporting data. But we also get a few dozen email replies from people whose auto-response/Out of Office messages are on. They come into my personal inbox and normally I just delete them. But this week, one stopped me in my tracks. It was literally so eye opening that I read every single one of the auto-responses to see if any could top it. So, what did it say?
