Starting one business is hard enough. Try starting 3,000+. That’s what thousands of Anytime Fitness and Waxing the City owners have done, and done successfully, by following the leadership principles of Anytime Fitness co-founders Chuck Runyon and Dave Mortensen. Chuck and Dave have created a vision of leadership that helps business owners maximize the potential of their organization, by teaching them to put culture first. So what’s the secret to their success? They call it the 4Ps.

People. Purpose. Profits. Play.

Chuck and Dave know that for any business to reach its full potential, it must devote time to developing itself in each of these four areas. In Love Work, you’ll discover how Chuck and Dave came to this realization, how you can both diagnose where your company is falling short, and how you can apply their actionable advice for how to improve.

Love Work is an honest account of what it’s like to take a business from a few thousand square feet to a global footprint. Inside you’ll hear not only Chuck and Dave talk about their proudest moments, biggest failures and fears, but also from franchise owners, professionals no different from yourselves, who decided to Love Work, and who found their business, physical, mental, and financial health all the better for having done so.

So are you ready to turn your business around? Here’s your first lesson: culture is strategy, and strategy is culture. Grab your copy of Love Work to learn more.
