Daniel Nyiri arrived in America in 2011 with $150 in his pocket and limited English, but as a true entrepreneur knows… so what? Today he is the CEO of 4U Fitness, a business that uses a very high-tech piece of equipment and has 7 locations with 32 employees.
Nyiri prioritized his life, set goals and planned his future. Understanding how much work and capital is needed to build a business, he worked 5 jobs simultaneously to generate income and developed the right relationships so that he could begin his career as an entrepreneur. Eventually, he developed the American version of E-Fit, the full-body Electrical Muscle Stimulation workout with Dr. Janos Papp—which was a complete gamechanger.
He is passionate about learning and makes time for himself with personal journaling and daily reading.

During Studio Savvy’s chat with Daniel, you'll learn:
→ [1:53] The inspirational story of how Daniel managed to get where he is now, the long process and lots of muscle work in order to survive and excel in a foreign land. (He went through so much and experienced a lot of roadblocks but that didn't stop him from achieving his dreams!)
→ [10:29] Daniel shares the importance of making a decision to step back and hire people because it's impossible to do everything on your own. Calculate how much your time is really worth and how much it actually costs to have someone do tasks instead of you.

→ [33:30] Daniel's last piece of advice about getting very clear on your why—why you're doing this, why you're starting this business—before going any further.
