As fit pros, we live in a world where things are expensive. Unlike the old days, most of us won’t stay with the same company for 30 years and retire with a fat pension. If we’re not careful, a series of poor financial situations or a lack of planning can leave us in a world of hurt.
That’s exactly what happened to me. My name is Billy Hofacker. I was “that guy”…working in the fitness industry and believing things were going along “okay.”
I knew I wasn’t on the path to getting rich but I guess I figured things would somehow get better on their own.
That delusion ended one day with the sound of my Honda Accord being hooked up to a tow truck.
My car had been repossessed.
What I didn’t know about financial planning was about to cost me everything…
What a wake-up call that was!
My wife and I were forced to sit down and stare reality in the face.
And reality was bad – Way north of 6 figures in non-mortgage debt bad. We couldn’t discuss
money without getting into an argument and didn’t know where to begin. We were losing hope.
Thankfully we decided to get out of our comfort zone, get the needed support and start a new and better process.
And it worked. Today my business is thriving. Our retirements are fully funded. The girls (We have 3!) have college plans in place.
All the fears that hung over our future disappeared!
The process worked but it didn’t start until we were willing to get our head out of the sand.
I documented our journey and the results is “Financial Freedom For Health and Fitness Professionals.”
So this “About” page really isn’t about me. It’s about YOU. You see, I’m not telling you my story to impress you. Rather I’m telling it to impress upon you what is possible.
I’m a firm believer in that things happen for a reason and God can take any negative and turn it into a positive.
I feel like I escaped the stronghold that debt and poor money management can lead. Now I’m coming back to grab as many other fit pros as possible and rescue them into the life their destined for.
I’m on a mission to make sure none of my colleagues have to go through what my family endured.
Whether your situation is as bad as mine was or not, I hope I’ll have the opportunity to come alongside you and help you become better just as my mentors have done for me.
Your dream inspires me. I want to see other fit pros succeed. I get so excited about it that it keeps me up at night. I believe in your vision.
