Daily Inspiration: Meet Bre Conn & Brandon Smith

Today we’d like to introduce you to Bre Conn & Brandon Smith

Hi Bre, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Freight House Fitness opened in 2014, but Brandon and I took over ownership of the business in September of 2020. I had been the General Manager and Brandon was a Personal Trainer with the gym for a few years before the opportunity to buy during the pandemic was presented to us.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Buying a business during a pandemic was a HUGE risk, but one we felt safe making after a lot of thought and consideration. We lost several hundred members when the pandemic hit, but all of the Freight House staff worked hard to take care of those that stuck around, which has, in turn, brought back in a lot of folks–close to where we were at pre-pandemic. We truly want to help people, and we hope in the next few years we can help several hundred more!

Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
Have a really, really great product that you believe in first and foremost. That will typically do the work for you. My other piece of advice would be to focus on your personal relationships–marriage, children, family, friendships–before you start networking all over the place and spread yourself too thin. Brandon is a people person, and he loves to chat with everyone (he always remembers their names) and learns their story, what brought them in, etc. I am personally a bit more of an extroverted introvert, so I can network for a while, but I really prefer to do things behind the scenes.
