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

The Winner's Mindset Fitness Academy - Fitness for blue collar CEOs.

Tell us about yourself

I first started my own fitness journey over five years ago. As I got stronger, I began working in landscaping for four years while doing personal training on top of that. During the summers, I would be part-time and then full-time during the winters.
I first started working for myself in 2020 when the gyms shut down.

It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows in the beginning, and it took lots of hard work and dedication to get to where I am today. As I got more experience, I narrowed in on who I really wanted to help: blue collar CEOs. From there, I see it as my calling to help these men get in better shape not only for themselves but so they can rise up as better leaders in their families and businesses.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Work ethic in pushing forward despite initial failures and lack of experience in the online space.

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

Self-doubt and imposter syndrome. We often underestimate our ability to help people and think things aren't perfect. The reality is that it never is, and you have to keep pushing forward despite that.

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

  1. Hire a coach.
  2. Stay dedicated to your systems no matter how many times you fail.
  3. Have irrational self-belief that you can succeed, gain more experience, and level up your skills.
