Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Mark Myers, Founder of Ucentric Life Inc., located in Chiefland, FL, USA.

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

Lean Body GPS is the name of my business. Our customers are health, wellness, fitness & sports professionals, and anyone looking to fully optimize their health, wellness, fitness, or sports performance.

Tell us about yourself

I loved all sports growing up and played many at junior high and high school levels. I then transitioned my love of sport and exercise into a bachelor's degree in exercise sport science and a master's degree in sports management from the University of Florida. I started working on this business in 2007, however, put it on the shelf and just revived it this year. It motivates me to help people achieve higher levels of fitness and wellness, which leads to more energy, better self-esteem, improved health, and an overall higher quality of life.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Launching this business has been the biggest accomplishment thus far. Because it is a technology business, that element of the launch had the biggest learning curve.

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

Balancing revenue generating activities with operations. They are both very important and needed to grow the business properly!

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

  1. Be sure you are solving a problem that will help a lot of people.
  2. Research others that may be doing what you want to do or something similar.
  3. Create a good plan, put together a powerhouse team and acquire adequate financial backing.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?
