Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with fitness coach -  Nicky Lampatos, from Montreal, Canada.

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

I specialize in personal training, Pilates rehab, and weight loss. My aim is to inspire others to do the same. I had weight gain 15 years ago and almost committed suicide. With the help of my doctor, I found a trainer and lost 75 lbs., and this day I became a trainer to help others just like me.

Tell us about yourself

I got into running and then qualified for the Boston marathon. I trained hard and ran it six years ago and got certified as a running coach too.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Seeing others achieve their goals and seeing them happy.

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

Patience, you need a lot of it; if you don’t have that, you won’t achieve and become big.

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

You need support. You need proper people that you can trust and good people to work with.

Where can people find you and your business?
