Tell us about yourself

In August 2020, I ventured out and started my own business during the height of a global pandemic. I am motivated daily to make a lasting difference in people’s lives by running a trusted and reputable business that offers personalized solutions.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Empowering individuals to accomplish more than they thought was possible in their fitness and in their life.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Building a team that is like-minded and loyal to the business. Building trust with both clients and employees.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Don’t start a business with an underlying motivation to make a lot of money. Start a business because you see a need in the industry and you have a genuine desire to meet that need and serve people. Monetize your talents and strengths in business. If possible, hire someone to run the areas of business that you would rather delegate.

Where can people find you and your business?
