The GenWhy Leaders Podcast

Dec 17, 2020

Show overview: 
Jon Thomas is the owner of Precision Fitness KC, a personal training company that encourages, inspires and challenges people to take control of their lives with a proper dose of exercise and a sustainable approach to nutrition.

Big picture:
Jon is an entrepreneur who realized he could make a living from one of his greatest passions, and not wait until he was retired to be free from a 9 to 5 job. He wanted to enjoy life now and pursue a career he loved. 

Make an exit plan:
Much like other entrepreneurs we’ve interviewed, Jon minimized risk before making the leap and quitting his full time job. He and his wife paid down a large sum of debt, and he built up his client base for personal training before he left his corporate career. He encourages others to do the same and be smart about their decisions when quitting their jobs to pursue passions. 

Faith and fitness:
As a Christian, he is confident that God has led him on a great path in life, and that all his experiences have accumulated to where he is today. For instance, he left a job at a large construction firm based in Kansas City - JE Dunn to pursue Precision Fitness. But without his construction experience, he would have never had the skills and knowledge to build the addition on to his house where he now trains and coaches his clients. Even if his personal training business would fail (which we know it won’t) he is confident it is all part of God’s plan to lead him to the next thing.
