There is one thing I've learned from talking to hundreds of clients (and potential clients) is that a lot of them don't believe in themselves.
They say they do, but ultimately actions speak louder than words. Their actions show they're just plain scared to get started or fill themselves with all kinds of self-doubt.
Listen, I get it, I've been there.
I remember when I started my first studio with less than one handful of clients that followed me from my previous job. I didn't want to tell anyone what I was doing or "steal" clients, so I was starting from scratch. The clients that followed me hunted me down. :)
Looking back, I had to take a leap of faith. I was signing a 5-year lease and invested what little my wife and I had at only 27 years old.
Oh, and did I mention that I quit my personal training job the last week in August of 2001. It was only a few weeks later I was sitting in my living room working on opening my studio...
