We recently connected with Logan Sneed and have shared our conversation below.
Logan, appreciate you joining us today. We’d love to have you retell us the story behind how you came up with the idea for your business, I think our audience would really enjoy hearing the backstory.
I was diagnosed with a stage 4 Glioblastoma Brain Tumor at 20 years old while I was in college. I then learned about the ketogenic diet and how this could potentially shrink tumors or prevent tumor regrowth. I began the ketogenic diet and saw incredible life changing results in my body while going through chemotherapy and radiation.
I then posted my results that I was seeing on social media, and people were shocked. They began asking what I was doing and how it worked. I thought in my mind, “I’ll start a fitness/nutrition coaching business on helping people lose weight and becoming more healthy!”. I then changed 10,000 lives in the online fitness/nutrition coaching world.
Over time, I was asked. “How did you build your coaching business to be so successful?”. This lead to coaching people how to build their own fitness/nutrition coaching business.
Then I was asked…”How do I scale my online coaching business?”. Now I coach online coaches how to scale their online coaching business to change more lives and build financial freedom.
As always, we appreciate you sharing your insights and we’ve got a few more questions for you, but before we get to all of that can you take a minute to introduce yourself and give our readers some of your back background and context?
After transforming my own body and my own health while documenting this online…people were inspired. I was always asked, “How do you do this?”, “How do you do that?”, and “Can I get your help?”.
I realized that coaching other people to change other people’s lives and build unlimited financial freedom…was a dream coming into reality. This is what woke me up every single day and still does. I knew I was diagnosed with brain cancer for this reason here…to change lives.
After working countless amount of hours in scaling my own coaching business, I have really seen what’s possible and what anyone can do. I didn’t need motivation to wake up, or someone to hold me accountable. The dream that I saw in changing lives and making unlimited money is what made each day another mission.
In Simplified Scaling, I have a done for you and done with you method of coaching that stands out from the rest of coaches out there that hand over a standard course. My team and I will go through the entire process on scaling their business in the most simple, stress free way possible.
We are specialized in helping coaches have more time to grow their business and not just run their business. We have honed in on helping them break a sales plateau, generate 10x more leads on a monthly basis, build a team that does the back end work, a team that generates leads for them, and a stream line sales process to boost sales.
The best thing about what I do is that I am actually there for each and every client on a daily basis and will 100% make sure they succeed to the level that they desire, no matter what. I don’t limit what can be provided or solved. I make sure every clients sees the results they desire and says, “That was the best investment I have ever made.”.
We’d love to hear about you met your business partner.
I was a 21 yr old running a 6 figure online coaching business trying to do everything in my business. I woke up one day to a message from someone in Dublin, Ireland telling me how he can help me grow my business and what he can do to help.
This isn’t the only one I have seen. I ignored nearly every single one of them, but this one I didn’t. He proposed how being business partners would work super well with us coming together. I ignored the proposal and said, “Thank you man, but I don’t even know you and won’t need that help.”
He then kept coming back and showed me all the things that he could bring to my business in making it so much less stressful for me, increase revenue, and work with me on ideas to scale.
I rejected his offer over and over again. This kept going on for over a year. I then thought, “if he is going to keep putting in that work to work with me, after I have rejected him nearly 100 times…and 99.9% will give up after one rejection…I have to give him a shot.”
We began working together in January 2017 with no legal binding or signed agreement. This was risky because I could have either not paid him, or he could have shut the website down in 10 seconds.
After one month in we doubled in revenue and the rest became history. We have now built 3 coaching businesses together and have worked together for 5 years straight. We have built a very rare partnership that people in the business world would dream of. We never slow down, we never rethink, we never second guess, we never question each other, we always put our heads down, see a goal, and execute, We have our next businesses in mind to work on together.
Let’s talk about resilience next – do you have a story you can share with us?
March 6th, 2016 I was driving to the gym while face timing my ex girlfriend at the time. In that moment, I began slurring my words which lead to a seizure while driving. I have never experienced a seizure in my life. After driving half a mile unconcious while she is watching the situation happen, I ended up in a ditch with no damage or injury.
Less than an hour later, I end up in the hospital with Doctors trying to figure out what happened here and why it happened. I then got an MRI to see if anything could have been going on in my brain. They then came back saying, “he needs to see a neuro-surgeon as soon as possible.”
24 hours later, I saw a brain surgeon who told me, “You won’t be able to speak or hear after this surgery.”.
I was shocked. I had no idea what to do or even think. I then saw another brain surgeon a day later who said, “You’ll be fine! I gotchu! Don’t worry about it. You’ll be able to speak and hear and well make this go well!
I had a 7 hour brain surgery that took out a brain tumor that was the size of an egg that was in my brain for 6 years. After 2 weeks went by, I went back to receive the diagnosis and the doctor said, “This is a stage 4 Glioblastoma brain tumor. Your life expectancy is 1-10 years. We won’t be able to do anything about this. Well try chemotherapy and radiation. But nothing else will work.”
I left there feeling lost, weak, scared, desperate, depressed, and the list goes on and on. A week later, I learned about the ketogneic diet by a friend who was telling me about the research around that, that has prevented tumor regrowth or even shrinks tumors.
6 years later, I have no tumor regrowth and feel better than I ever have in my entire life. I do intermittent fasting, meditation, the ketogenic diet, optimal sleep, and exercise. This is what has worked for me.
I saw beyond what the doctor saw. I thought, “you either die and listen to the doctor, Or you find something that would potentially help and put in the work to make it happen.”
I did and it has changed my life, motivated me to realize anything is possible. Anything you put your mind to, you can achieve.
