In today’s episode, Stuart talks to Molly Galbraith about entrepreneurial lessons, why success takes time, the power of a shitty first draft, conducting deep market research on your clients and clients who have left and why it’s still so normal for male personal trainers to shy away from topics surrounding coaching women.
