As Congress debates over extending low interest rates on student loans, one can’t help but feel that Americans are being horribly duped. “College degrees offer no guarantee of financial security these days,” says Sam Bakhtiar, owner of the Fitness Concepts franchise and boot camp marketing expert.
Sam values all the years he spent in school, achieving his B.S. in Premed and Nutrition, as well as his Doctorate of Chiropractics, but he says the most valuable learning experiences took place outside of school. “A piece of paper won’t gain you access to wealth and happiness in life,” he adds. “You need to spend time cultivating your intellectual, social, financial and personal capital for true prosperity.”
Sam defines these concepts further by explaining: “Intellectual capital is what you know – like what you’ve learned in school that you can speak comfortably about. You can invest in this area by taking certification courses, participating in boot camp marketing webinars, going to conferences, and taking business classes.” Formal education is a good start, he says, but there is much more to learning than college alone.
“Social capital involves who you know. You’ve heard it before – that nothing beats networking – and that is certainly true in the world of boot camp marketing. You should look to meet people who are better than you and earning more money than you because it will help you learn more and strive to be better. Keep ties open by making quick calls, sending out emails, and attending mastermind events as often as possible.”
Financial capital refers to how a person connects with others who are willing to invest in his or her expertise. “Many people get into boot camp marketing and ownership because it doesn’t have a lot of start-up costs, but if you want to access greater capital and climb the income ladder, then you need to find your set of angel investors who will help you expand your business,” Sam explains.
“Personal capital involves understanding your strengths, weaknesses and passions. Before you begin your boot camp marketing, you should know where your specialties lie, so you can differentiate your service.” To cultivate this form of capital, Sam recommends attending workshops, seeking mentorships, reading books, and signing up for business coaching.
