Founder and CEO of Mountainside Fitness Tom Hatten shares his memoir.
At just 22, and with no experience or inkling of what would lie ahead, entrepreneur Tom Hatten had a dream to start a health and fitness business. He took his entire savings of $2000 and built Arizona's leading fitness empire: 17 locations; 1,400 employees. But Tom's real life 30-year journey isn't just an account of growing a successful business; this true story takes us to heady highs and crashing lows (including bankruptcy, jail time, and a horrific personal tragedy). It leaves no stone unturned, both personally and professionally, inspiring you to discover your own hidden strengths, and giving each of us the courage to Dream On.
