Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Tamra James, Co-Founder of Movewell On Demand, located in Arcata, CA, USA.

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

My business is called Movewell On Demand. We are a movement and wellness online platform that offers Pilates, yoga, nutrition, and mindfulness classes for a monthly membership. All are online and accessible anytime. Our customers are primarily women ages 25-65.

Tell us about yourself

I am a wife, a mother, and a small business owner. I bought the Pilates studio I now teach and run in the small town I went to college in. Exercise has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up playing all the sports and went to college to play soccer. I have found deep healing in mindful exercise and teaching. It is an honor to share my gifts and knowledge. Now that I have a 10-month-old daughter, it makes my job feel even more important. She witnesses me every day teaching classes and living my dream. I am so grateful for this path.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Owning my own business before 30! That was always my goal growing up, and I was extremely proud when that dream came to fruition.

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

You're always thinking about your business. Even on my days off, on vacation, in the middle of the night. I'm always answering emails and phone calls which sometimes makes my work/life balance a little uneven.

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

Do it! Everyone always says, 'I'm not ready yet' you will never be fully ready. You have to take the leap and know that if what you are offering comes from a place of love, compassion, and authenticity, you will blossom and be successful.
