At Reflex Supplements, we’re all about helping you achieve your best, whether that’s in the gym, kitchen, or boardroom.
When you think about business, or more specifically being good at it, it’s a lot like achieving physical fitness. You need clearly defined goals, a sense of accountability, a positive mindset, and the stamina to keep going through good times and bad.
As the fastest growing supplement franchise in Western Canada, we get a ton of business questions, especially around how to turn your passion for fitness into a career.
Let’s just say we got you.
We checked in with Reflex Supplements Partner and Director of Franchising, Curtis Christopherson for his reco’s on the best business books to add to your reading list.
As a guy with an insane amount of industry knowledge, (like years spent running Innovative Fitness) an impressive business acumen (hello, Surrey Board of Trade’s Business Person of the Year), and crazy amounts of community involvement (with over 3 million raised for charities such as the JDRF and The 60Minute Kidsclub) his endorsements come with a lot of weight.
From those just daydreaming about running their own business, to those living the hustle every day, these books will take your dream to the next level by helping you to think differently, work smarter, and be strategic about reaching your goals.
