EP 097: Homeless to 7-Figure Business Owner with Tom Miller of Lifelight Fitness

How do you go from sitting in federal prison and addicted to drugs to running a seven-figure business in only a few years? After turning his back on a lifelong passion for fitness in favor of drugs and alcohol, Tom Miller did two stints in prison that left him homeless and deeper in his addiction than ever. Now, with the help of some tough love and soul searching, Tom is the owner of Lifelight Fitness, a million-dollar gym dedicated to taking a holistic approach to fitness and paying their trainers six-figures a year. One of his secrets to success is the Lifelight Sales System and he joins Aaron today to share how he and his team consistently close with this method. You’ll hear exactly how to respond to objections, get to the root of your prospects’ needs, and create incentives for employees to close on their own. You’ll also hear how Tom pulled himself out of rock bottom up to a top-tier income by focusing on serving others. Don’t miss it.


Every time you close a deal, you strengthen a relationship.
