Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ryan Hodgson, Co-Owner of Team HH Online, located in Jersey, Channel Islands.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Team HH is an online coaching company that helps busy professionals get in shape (both physically and emotionally) as part of a lifestyle without spending hours in the gym or on a strict diet. We do that using our formula called 'the best YOU formula.'
Tell us about yourself
I have always had a passion for health and fitness, and I am a million miles an hour (recently diagnosed with ADHD, which explains a lot). About eight years ago, I'd been in the fitness industry for a few years and built a business that had grown too quickly, which made me begin to fall out of love with it. Then Elly (my wife and business partner) knew I had passion in me somewhere, so we started researching about becoming online as a way to help people in a holistic way.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Becoming a bestselling author alongside my wife with our book, 'Becoming the Best YOU' with the Hodgsons.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Switching off is a challenge at times, as is managing people/staff. When running a business, it's not just about me, but my team is dependent on the success of it too, so they can succeed.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Always be yourself. When you're yourself, you'll attract the right people.
- Remember, you can't do everything. Business owners like to try and do everything, but actually being open to outsourcing the things you're not so good at is really important.
- Make sure you're enjoying it. We spend so much time working, so make sure it's on something you enjoy.
