Jonathan Goodman is an explorer who has written 3 books about his passions. He has gone from personal trainer, to entrepreneur, to social media marketing maven. Jon’s open about the highs and the lows, including the 6-month hiatus that helped reset his life. It’s a compelling story and there’s a lot you can apply to your own journey.
During this conversation, you will learn about:
- Jon’s journey and the core drive that lead him along the way
- the core piece of advice that his mentor gave him, which laid the foundation for his success
- how he hustled to grow his network
- how helping others expose their content also grew thePTDC.com into a respected website
- leveraging a book to gain legitimacy
- why good authors use great editors and designers
- a simple, yet killer tip for writing your book (I’m going to use it)
- the link between social media and personal training
- how a 6-month hiatus gave him the space he needed to refocus and leap forward
- what comes after your initial success?
- where is the line between fulfilment and profit maximization?

Jonathan Goodman is an explorer in business and in life. He explores things that he finds interesting and has the potential to help others. Started as a personal trainer and then then wrote Ignite the Fire and started the Personal Trainer Development Center (thePTDC). In under 3 years he grew thePTDC to the biggest collaborative blog for personal trainers. Since then he’s focused on social media marketing and uses a keen understanding of human wants to drive engagement. Plus he’s a connoisseur of fine key lime pie.
These podcasts are only the beginning, hopefully leading to deeper conversations. In that vein, I’m going to try something new. I’m creating a group where I can post unreleased resources, share unique opportunities and interact with you on a more personal level. The key to me is interaction. To give us a way to learn from each other.

Oh – and before this starts to sound like some slick sales shit – this is all free. All you need to bring is your time and attention.
