"The Stress of Success" - Learning to grow your business/ company without giving up your soul.
The average gym goer travels five miles to visit a workout facility. Zach Homol had a different kind of commute—1,000 feet back to the surface of the West Virginia mountainside. A young coal miner working 10-12 hours per day, 6-7 days a week, Zach’s passion and drive for strength training compelled him to pick up a barbell bar rather than a TV remote after clocking out.
In 2016, Zach took a big risk (and bigger pay cut) by relocating to Indianapolis to launch Iron Valley Barbell, the most specialized gym in the metro area. Down to his last $732 dollars, the first month of business ownership was truly do-or-die.
Zach’s gym and coaching business expanded rapidly, to include clients in more than two dozen countries. As Zach shared his fitness, business and personal growth journey during this period of ascent, his email and social media inboxes quickly filled with questions from business leaders and entrepreneurs looking for help on their own growth journey.
In 2020, Zach turned much of his focus to helping leaders overcome mental, spiritual and psychological obstacles that wreck havoc on profit margins and personal lives alike. Today, Zach leads sold out retreats in stunning locales throughout the U.S.
