SPI 167: Chalene Johnson and the Lowdown on Lifers

You might know today’s guest as a fitness guru. But Chalene Johnson hasn’t stopped there—she’s also an inspiring entrepreneur and the leader of a tribe of amazing, committed fans.

Chalene’s career has grown beyond the fitness industry to include all kinds of businesses, lifestyle coaching, and podcasts like Build Your Tribe. When Chalene invited me to her event, The Success Summit, I didn’t know what to expect. What I found was incredible: an amazing event full of raving fans that Chalene calls her “Lifers.” I knew I had to have her on the show to share her insights on building a following.

Chalene also offers up a few personal glimpses into her life as a business owner, including times when the going wasn’t easy. She’ll give an honest look at the effects of career burnout and restoring a healthy work/life balance. Her story is exciting, inspiring, and full of invaluable lessons for all of us business owners.

I can’t wait for you to hear what Chalene has to say!
