Top Female Entrepreneur Shares Top Lessons for Launching Her Coach360 Business | Ep. 357 with Kathleen Ferguson

I’ve known her for over a dozen years. And this past January 2024, she invited me to ring the NASDAQ bell in NYC with Athletech News. Certainly one of my highlights of the year. Since that time, she has also started her own company, Coach360, a media and membership platform to educate and inform those at the frontlines of chronic disease and the obesity epidemic.

As a busy entrepreneur, Mom, and fitness professional, she has one heckuva personal story that will definitely inspire you. Additionally, not only will she share her entrepreneurial pursuits, Kathleen will be one of our 12-guest speakers at the IMPACT SUMMIT in Los Angeles from July 11-14th. #BeInTheRoom for that but tune into the podcast today.

On today’s IMPACT SHOW episode, here are some of things that Kathleen and I talk about:

  • Kathleen’s back story and how she got into fitness.
