As an extremely busy management consultant, I work 60-80 hours weeks, jumping on trains and planes to work with multiple clients. On top of this, I have a husband and 2 kids at home. I want to have the option to have a more flexible lifestyle while earning scalable revenue.

1 year after enrolling in Zero to Launch, I have built a rapidly growing premium coaching practice and made $31k profit on the side.

Through Zero to Launch, I cultivated my idea, launched my website, MasalaBody.com, and have helped multiple people lose weight and eat healthier, all from scratch. Within 6 months I had my first premium coaching client – and it’s growing quickly.

In building an online presence, I didn’t have a lot of time to make mistakes or go down the wrong path.

Before the course, I had an idea for an online presence. But I had no idea how to get started and how to turn it into a business. Through Zero to Launch, I was able to learn the secrets to launch a website, build and grow an audience, AND develop a clear roadmap to success and future revenue – while knowing that I am helping others improve their lives by doing so.

Through the many resources available in the ZTL program, I found that the quickest way to earn revenue quickly and be able to leave my full-time job was by offering premium coaching services. However, with no previous coaching experience, I wondered if I would be able to do it.

Through ZTL, I learned how to position my product and the exact business model to start my business offering a premium coaching program. Within months of launching my blog I found my first client, and soon gained 3 more in the months after that. My current clients all renewed because they were receiving high quality and value and they were losing weight quickly and feeling so much more energy.

Im thankful I had the opportunity to join ZTL. Below are my results in the first year

• Launched a site that gained 105 subscribers within the first WEEK. (before I put the site up, I was scared NO one would like it!).

• Attracted an audience of 2,000

• Earned an income of $31k

• Supported women to lose 15 pounds in a few months and changed their lifelong habits

1. How ZTL helped me gain 105 subscribers from my first post

Before I launched my site, I felt vulnerable about my idea, and about the response from the community. All of my friends, family and more would see my work! If I failed, I felt that I would fail in front of everyone.

Before input form ZTL, I updated my website 10,546 times and still had not launched it. I was too scared I didn’t have it right!

I got specific, targeted advice through the course and our private FB community that helped me to tweak and focus my positioning so I could communicate why I am the go-to person to solve health and weight concerns for busy people. Through the ZTL FB community, I gained an amazing and ACTIVE network of like-minded entrepreneurs that specifically influenced, and continue to do so, the success of my website and my strategy.

The day I launched my site, I knew I hit the nail on the head! The moment I launched it, my site immediately gained readers. People were rapidly joining, sharing it with their friends and forwarding it to others!

It felt so amazing!

2. Why my audience to grown to 2,000 in less than 1 year

Given my intensive work schedule and family life, I dont have a lot of time to waste. Through the ZTL course, Ramit teaches the MOST EFFECTIVE marketing strategies to rapidly grow your audience – including technology applications and the best ways to optimize your website. With my limited time, I was able to target the fastest path to rapid growth, without wasting my time, reaching over 500 subscribers, within 1.5 months.

I learned what the venues for quick growth are; and the other venues that take up a lot of time but don’t get much results. Through principles learned in ZLT, i posted on a huge site, MindBodyGreen, my article was shared over 6k times, and I got a rapid influx of readers.

3. How ZTL taught me the pricing principles to make $31k on the side

I learned the pricing principles to price and offer a coaching program at a premium level from the very beginning. Due to ZTL resources, including videos and articles from experts, I learned the fastest way to make an extra income. I have a demanding management consulting career and 2 kids, and I was still able to make this additional income. I am just getting started – my goal is to leave my full-time career, have more flexibility, and help more people lose weight and feel more energy.

My advice, especially if you have limited time: If you are looking to learn the most advanced techniques to start, grow, and find incredible revenue potential and more flexibility in your career in the FASTEST WAY POSSIBLE, and you are motivated to do so, I recommend that you do not pass up this opportunity to truly learn from a proven system.

    Hi Masala,

    This is a very inspiring story. Congrats on your success. I am also in the fitness industry and I love inspiring and helping people. Your testimonial for ZTL has made it a very easy decision for me to try the course.

    Hi Nagina!

    Thank you so much for the review! I totally understand how it feels to work super long hours. I work 55+ hours a week (with a 2 hour commute each way!), and just like you, time was extremely limited.

    If you can, can you please answer one question for me: Because of my schedule, I only have 5-10 hours a week to commit to an online business. I understand that in the ZTL FAQ it states that this is enough time; however, I wasn’t sure if that was JUST the course, excluding taking action on the business as well. I hope it was 5-10 hours for both the course and the actual creation of the business. What are you thoughts on it?

    Thank you so much Nagina!
