Land of (missed) Opportunities – part 2: Would you look a gift horse in the face?

As I hightlighted in my last post Land of (missed) Opportunities – part 1: Engage & Educate recently, in the space of a week or so, three individual events sparked my interest. All relate to business opportunities that were already ‘warm’ and with the right approach would have led to income for the people I was interacting with. In this post, I will look at the second.

The Back Story

After completing a half and a full marathon, I have now set my sights on doing a triathlon. The challenge in itself is good, but there is an added benefit that I will significantly improve my swimming and I have engaged a coach to help me to that. The current gym I attend has a small swimming pool, where it is difficult to develop. Therefore, I decided to look for an alternative gym that had a larger pool; as it was it also had newer and more modern facilities, more facilities generally, larger car park and a much nicer view when you are on a treadmill. I knew that this would be more expensive than the current gym and was prepared for that, however, I did not want to pay the full price which was over double what I was already paying.
