Hello world!

Hi everyone! My name is Tom Hatten and I am the founder and president of AZ’s largest locally owned Fitness Center chain, Mountainside Fitness. What once started as an idea to open a small “gym” way back in 1991 as a junior at Arizona State University has blossomed into 10 fitness centers in two states each totaling about 40,000 sq. ft in size. We are now home to over 42,000 active members!\r\n\r\nMy blog topics will range from my experiences as an entrepreneur these past twenty years which includes finance, marketing, politics and sports. I believe the more I can share from my experiences may help anyone that might be contemplating starting their own business. Some might be serious, some funny, OK and some might be just plain dorky but all based on experiences and thoughts from everything I have seen and done  these past two decades. Look for my blog on the first Tuesday of every month.\r\n\r\nSincerely,\r\nTom Hatten; President Mountainside Fitness
