Over the last decade, I've probably literally written one million lines of code that contribute to the PushPress system that you use to run your gym today. Today, I wrote my last line of code, forever.
That's not to say that PushPress won't continue to build a better and better product for you - in fact quite the opposite. In the past year, we've grown our engineering staff by about 500% and we have plans to hire more engineers in the months to come.
I once was spending about 90% of my time writing code. However, my job here has evolved over the years. I've always loved building - and coding is my passion. So it's weird and hard to not continually "be in the code"... but we all must evolve as people to bring the best products and businesses to the world!
I hope you - as a studio owner - can read this and reflect. What do you do today and what do you need to grow into to make your business the absolute best it can be? It might involve giving up the one thing you know you're pretty damn good at (or you just flat out love doing).
Small Changes Are Big Sometimes
The change we made was tiny.
We used to show all membership plans for a member with their profile.
This became unwieldily when someone ended up having many stops and starts or switched memberships a bunch.
So we simply hide cancelled plans by default and show them when you want to see them.
It was something we didn't think of when you built the product - and our clients let us know it wasn't the best experience. So we changed it.
Sometimes, it's the smallest changes that make the biggest impact to your clients.
Remember this when you design your products and offerings to your members. Look for the smallest, easiest wins that provide meaningful impact!
To all my clients requesting this small change, I want you all to know that I personally made this one for you all... .and as much as it's sad to say - this will be my last code contribution to PushPress as we know it.
My job now lies 100% in steering this ship in the bold directions that best serve you - our client!
