Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Wayne Williams, Founder and Owner of Buffboy Fitness, located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I am the owner of BuffBoy Fitness, a health and wellness company that focuses on helping others achieve their best physique.

Tell us about yourself

I am a hard worker that believes everyone can achieve greatness. What started me working on my business was the necessity to provide for my kids. I am a father of 5, so the task was not easy! What motivates me is knowing that I can inspire others to chase their dream. As I always say: It's difficult, not IMPOSSIBLE!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I won a People's Choice Award for Best Fitness Professional. I was quite proud of that.

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

One of the hardest things was relocating my business to another country. Originally from Toronto, Canada, I made the leap to Los Angeles, which is not easy... especially considering the costs involved, and basically starting a business from scratch again. Finding new clientele was very hard for me.

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

  1. Believe in yourself and your product. Others won't buy from you unless they believe in you or your product.
  2. Chase happiness, not money. Once you enjoy what you do, the money will come.
  3. Never won't always be easy. As long as you stick to it, you'll be fine.
