We had the good fortune of connecting with Martise Moore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Martise, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is my ability to get clients fast, noticeable results.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My top three distinctions are my testimonials, professionalism, and gender. MY CLIENTS GET GAME-CHANGING RESULTS I am thankful for all the 5-star testimonials that I have received over the years. It is so touching to hear kids and adults express the significance of their growth and how I was a part of it. I AM PROFESSIONAL There seems to be an expectation for sports coaches to show up casually in their online presence and customer service systems. And because of that, I stand out. Just like my coaching style, my webpages are clear, informative, and supported by personable customer service. I AM A WOMAN There are far fewer female sports coaches than male sports coaches. And yet, many parents like the idea of a female mentor and trainer coaching up their kids’ confidence and performances. I also attract adult clients who feel more comfortable talking about their fears and failures with a woman. My business and purpose are more than private running coaching–they are transformative journeys. And along the way, I am enrolling kids and adults into the idea that they are more powerful than they ever imagined. The #1 reason I am a highly sought after coach is my clients’ generous willingness to share their wins online. I am truly grateful. There have been many ups and downs on this journey. But perseverance, purpose, and a strong support system of family, friends, colleagues, and mentors are what keep me moving forward. My greatest lessons have come from failure: BUILD A DAILY WINS CALENDAR When you run your own business, it is easy to get distracted by the next “interesting project.” I have fallen into this trap many times, and I still do every once in a while. But now my DAILY WINS Calendar serves as guardrails that keep me on point. It ensures that no matter what I choose to get into on a given day, I will have a certain number of wins. FOCUS ON THE MOTIVATED When I first started out, I worked with pretty much anyone who would hire me. I soon found out that there are people who hire coaches to be their sole source of motivation. These types of clients are exhausting and rarely achieve any sustainable results. Running a business requires a lot of energy, and choosing who you spend it on can make or break you. SYSTEMS, SYSTEMS, SYSTEMS Although my business seems simple on the surface, there are many moving parts–mainly because I am always growing. The systems I invest in make everything more productive, proactive, and fun. I am on a mission to supercharge the sports confidence of athletes, weekend warriors, and military and law-enforcement candidates so that they can win on and off the field and make the world a better place.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Wait! How did you know that I love planning visitor itineraries?! Los Angeles is one of the most attractive cities in the world because there are so many things to do and see in the best weather ever. The first thing I would do is split up our days into sections of the city–because…LA traffic. Our must-dos: VENICE/MARINA DEL REY Shopping on Abbot Kinney Lunch at The Butcher’s Daughter Pampering at Venice Soleil Nail Spa Coasting on the Marina Del Rey Water Taxi Dinner at Mercedes Bar & Grille HOLLYWOOD Breakfast at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles Hike Runyon Canyon Tour celebrity homes Dinner at Katana’s West Hollywood Party at the Hollywood Bowl or Ford Theatre MALIBU Drive up PCH Lunch at Geoffrey’s Malibu Relax on a Malibu beach Dinner at Nobu Malibu
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give a shoutout to the sport of Track & Field. It is the most physically and mentally demanding sport that I have ever participated in. It taught me pain (yeah, a whole lot of pain). And it taught me triumph: Triumph over my fears, my discomforts, and my competition (which was mostly myself). Track also gave me one of the best support networks I could have asked for. When I traveled 2600 miles away from home to USC, I was not alone. The track team provided me with instant family and influential connections. There was no shortage of mentorship, encouragement, or love. And still today, my track family is there for me.
