5 things you must do to set up a successful business in Ibiza

It is a scary idea setting up a business in Ibiza. We have been there and trust us sometimes we have sleepless nights because of doubts or insecurity. But luckily we have great coaches who pick us up when we fall down. And now it is the time to be here for you. Follow these 5 steps and you will be well on your way of building your dream business in Ibiza.

1 Build your community

I remember the words of Marisa 7 years ago. She said “let’s build a community first and then we will see where Ibiza Inside will take us.” Fast forward, we have built a large community with Ibiza Inside and with the help of the people in that community we successfully set up our personal training business, The Workout Club Ibiza. When you have your community you can start by solving the problems of your community by providing products and services


2 Create a master networking list

One of our friends Andrew always says your network equals your net worth. So build your master networking list. Keep it simple take an Excel sheet and write down everybody who can be helpful for your future business. Build a relationship with those people. One day 1 person on that list will push you forward.


3 Be yourself

If there is one thing that we have learned over the years, it is to stay true to yourself. Follow your heart instead of your mind. Don’t let other people take you off your path. Believe in yourself and your ability, and success will come your way.


4 Hire a coach

The most successful people in the world never stop educating themselves. Having a coach who will keep you accountable is one of the best investments you will ever make. You will move forward and when you are stuck, you can call out to your coach. We are blessed with some great coaches and we consider them part of our team. Go get a coach.
