I quit working and my martial arts school actually grew!

“I quit working and my martial arts school actually grew!” Seriously. Read below…

Okay… I didn’t quit working altogether, but I did quit the majority of my stressful, time consuming duties as a school owner… And guess what… My school actually continued to grow!  

Hi! My name is Duane Spires… I have always wondered how business owners go from $0-$100,000 and then to 1 million dollars or more per year… I thought that those owners had some secret formula, or maybe they had special connections…

After studying the most successful entrepreneurs in this country and speaking on stage at large events with business owners who generate more than 100 million dollars per year, and even several billionaires, I discovered that they all had one interesting thing in common.

This discovery was amazing! It actually defies what many martial arts school owners are willing to do. In fact, it scares the heck out of them (and me) and made us want to cry like babies..

It’s the so called “scary” art and of delegation.

Delegation is defined as: the the act of giving control, authority, a job, a duty, etc., to another person. Sounds simple right?? Try entrusting people to run your school without you and then let me know… LOL..

I grappled with giving myself permission to fully delegate for many years, but when I finally decided to train my team and empower them to take over my school, a magic thing happened…


YES, my awesome team actually grew my school and they loved it! It freed my time to become an entrepreneur again, and helped me earn more income! It felt so surreal for the first few months that I was convinced that it was all a dream.

So.. Here we are today. I successfully lead a 7-figure martial arts business (Extreme Youth Sports Inc.), an Amazon reselling company, and of course my consulting/coaching company (MAST). I spend around 25 hours per week on my businesses and I have tripled my personal income.

The great news is that you can too. You just have to be willing to “let go.”

I had a great coaching call earlier today with a client who just decided it was best for him to “let go.” He sounded so happy and energetic. Basically, he was a brand new person. I smiled to myself as I heard him describe his new vision of growing his schools! 

You can learn how to delegate too! In fact, I have an incredible 3-day live event happening in Tampa, Florida on 3/31 – 4/2 and it is going to include the most up-to-date information in Martial Arts Marketing, Sales, Leadership, Delegation, Daily operations, Classroom Management, and specifically…

The biggest revenue generating streams you could possibly have for your school:

My business parter, Erica L. Martin, and I would love to meet you in person at my upcoming event! Your business, life, and staff/student’s lives, will be improved dramatically! My goal is for you to experience the freedoms that me and my coaching members enjoy each day! 

We are in this together.
