I recently had someone ask me “why would someone have walked away from a business that is making millions of dollars?”

Good question… right?

Well, it’s a pretty sure bet that the person who asked me that question probably didn’t realize that a lot more than money comes along with owning a significant business.

But his question got me thinking.  Who out there had a great business that is no longer part of it, but the business is still running?

That’s where my guest for this episode Eric Ruth comes in.

Eric was operating a substantial business with a partner but is now no longer a part of it.  So I asked him if he would be willing to talk about what the business was doing to him and why he decided to move on from it.

And he agreed.

So in this interview we dive into the other side of being an entrepreneur and why Eric decided to move on from something that most people “dream about.”

Oh, and just in case you don’t know who Eric Ruth is, well…

He’s kind of like the godfather (or one of them) for marketing in the fitness industry. A good portion of the marketing you see taking place in the fitness industry has its roots from what Eric created.

So it’s not every day you get to dive into the mind of a person who help set the foundations for a huge part of an industry.

And that’s why this interview is so important. You get to hear the real things that take place from an entrepreneur who has pretty been there and done it all.

So sit back and listen to this interview with Eric on what the business was doing to him and why he walked away from it.
