Episode 8: Michael Kellett, Macro Mike

Michael Kellet, former bodybuilder and founder of Macro Mike, did something unexpected during the COVID-19 pandemic: he bought a gym.

With the market for gyms bottoming out as fitness facilities were forced to shut down in line with health orders, Michael saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get his foot in the door.

It came as the entrepreneur was experiencing solid online sales of his natural protein products as consumer appetites shifted and stay-at-home orders forced the ecommerce boom to scale up tremendously.

This week Jack asks Mike about facing adversity in business, the retail trends he's witnessed over the last few months, and why exactly he bought that gym.
