Tell us about yourself

My name is Jamie Speiser, and I am an Award-Winning Personal Trainer, Body Building Competitive Winner, and Host of a 'Younger By the Minute' Podcast with my business partner and wife, Jennifer Speiser. As the creator of my own unique fitness framework, I helped hundreds of people go from fat to feeling fabulous. I know what it feels like to feel like an imposter in my own body. After picking up my first weight in a bodybuilding gym at the age of 13, I began my journey of growth, learning, and building my body and my confidence. I now help competitors, entrepreneurs, and high-performance people go to the next level in their fitness journey.

I am now on a mission to help people of all ages and sizes to feel confident, overcome their own internal 'bully' - and be empowered to take ownership of their body and nutrition - no matter what the Medical 'Bully' World says. Your Body. Your Choice. Your Life.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Making it through COVID and the company has increased its income by 56% in the last two years, along with the company making over 1 million in the first five years.

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

The hardest thing for me has been that failure is not an option, as I have 14 employees, and my family depends on the success of PFMS. That every decision I make has to be in the best interest of the company and my staff, I would have a very hard time moving forward had I let them down by a poor decision or just given up because things were hard.

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

  1. It is to learn to control FEAR and realize that FEAR will push you to success vs. cripple you as long as you learn to trust in yourself, your brand, and your employees.
  2. Read the book "The Great Game of Business" this will ignite your staff and help you get them involved as if they own the company also. It shows them that no matter their role, it is important.
  3. Higher an accounting firm to handle your books; this will take the stress off you and allow you to focus on growing and running your company.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Entrepreneurship is a lonely and long road but extremely rewarding. You will have to fight your own negative self-talk and have to tune out everyone else negative comments. You will have to sacrifice time with family and friends for the good of your business and employees. This all may sound scary, but again it is all very rewarding.
