How did Allie Cooper do it?
What gave her app, CirquePlus, that extra edge. She doubted she could do it, what business owner doesn’t, but she overcame her limiting beliefs using some tips and tricks she learned at Passion.io.
Allie is now teaching her third cohort of students. She has been refining her teaching process constantly during her time with Passion.io and she was so excited to share her journey with us in the From Passion to Profession podcast.
What makes a successful PassionFighter? What is the one key thing you must hold true to get the success Allie did, and how should you pick yourself up when things aren’t going your way?
This podcast will be tackling these questions and Allie will be sharing her insights and thoughts on successful entrepreneurship. You can watch the whole show below.
Allie Cooper is a circus, aerial art, and areal rope coach. These are all acrobatic disciplines that involve gymnastic movement on a rope suspended from a ceiling.
Her app focuses on getting aerial artists back in the air after taking a break from the profession. She came on the podcast to chat about Passion.io and her own entrepreneurial journey.
This podcast was recorded live in the PassionFighter Facebook community.
Transcribed highlights from the show
Dan: Could you tell me about your Passion.io journey.
Allie: I’d had the idea for an app for about half a year and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Creating a mobile fitness app was something that I wanted to do.
I had done some light research to see what would be involved in creating an app and I was totally overwhelmed with the cost and commitment. I’d pretty much given up on the idea, then I saw your advert.
When I came across the webinar I was absolutely thrilled. I almost felt like it was too good to be true. I remember talking to my mum and my partner about it and being so excited. I took the EUC very seriously, I booked out time to watch it and really worked on completing it as best I could.
The whole course really resonated with me and I thought ‘oh my gosh, this is what I want to do’. I will be honest there was a part of me that was a little apprehensive. But I took a leap of faith and I’m really glad that I did because I couldn’t have been more happy with the results.
Dan: Can you share a little bit about the results you got whilst going through this process?
Allie: Yeah sure, for the first round I did I think part of my success came from my timing. I launched right after the new year and everyone was fired up with New Year’s resolutions. So when I did my launch I had 60 applications, it was completely overwhelming. My Calendly was stacked.
It’s a good problem to have but I was super busy. I run an offline business and have my kids at home, so it was pretty hectic.
I think I had one day where I did nine strategy calls. It was great but stressful so I finally capped my challengers at 20 people and made $4000. In my second round I think I had 12 challengers.
Dan: How did you decide what would be in your program?
Allie: In my first test group we always did a conditioning warm-up to get us ready for exercise at the start of our class. So I had been experimenting with what was accessible and what was realistic to begin a training session with, how many reps can I give clients, and how long the exercise should last for.
There was a little bit of trial and error with that. But ultimately I put exercises in my program that I enjoyed doing and that keep me motivated and excited.
The exercises I chose focused on areas I wanted my experts to be targeting. So a lot of core exercises, arm exercises, & a lot of cardio because that’s something aerialists don’t train a lot of at all.
I also made sure that the exercises were short. My clients wanted quick workouts so I focused on lessons that could be done quickly.
