Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Tamilee Webb, a
Personal Fitness Trainer, based in Del Mar, CA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I help those who want to look and feel better with their fitness and overall wellness goals through online coaching and workouts. My average clients are mostly women, although I do have several men from the ages of 45 to 80 years.
Tell us about yourself
Being in the health and fitness industry for the past 40+ years, I continue to love what I do. What interested me in getting into the business was a healthy lifestyle; besides, I love motivating others to be fit and healthy. Every day is a blessing! I never take myself, my body, my mind, or my health for granted. My motto is "Take care of your body, and your body will take care of you." Through movement, what I choose to put into my body and my thoughts are the key to living my best life.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
What I'm best known for and my biggest success has been the 22 titles I created for the BUNS OF STEEL and ABS OF STEEL VIDEO SERIES. These titles sold over 14 million copies and have helped millions get in shape. I continue creating workouts for 50+ groups on my website WEBBWORKOUTS.COM.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Keeping up with the fast pace of technology! Marketing today is very different than marketing 30 years ago. With social media, it's a learning curve to market your products and or services.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Before starting a business research, research and research some more. Find a mentor that can guide you. Learn the good, the bad, and the ugly of the industry you want to be in.
- Know your brand! Your brand not only defines the product or service you're providing, but it also defines who you really are.
- What makes a brand/company relatable and appealing is when it comes across as a genuine representation of the person or company behind it. Stick to what you know. Keep in mind; People don't buy a product, service, or idea. They buy the story that's attached to it. Stick to what you know.
