Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Anthony Silverman, President, and CEO of The BJJ Box, located in Richboro, PA, USA.

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

Jiu-jitsu's favorite monthly subscription box is delivered to your door filled with premium jiu-jitsu and grappling apparel, equipment, supplements, supplies, snacks, and more. We find the best in the world of jiu-jitsu and guarantee every box is worth more than the cost! Each box includes 4-7 items you're going to love. My customers are BJJ Practitioners.

Tell us about yourself

I was a subscriber and then asked the old owner if he would like to be a partner, and to my surprise, he said yes. After about two years as a partner, a buyout was proposed to me. I took it, and I have been the owner of The BJJ Box since December 2020. My motivation is to grow.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Navigating through a pandemic and now sky-high inflation. It is a very difficult environment right now for businesses, but you have to enjoy what you are doing.

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

  1. Make sure that you love it.
  2. Stay organized.
  3. Surround yourself with good people.

Where can people find you and your business?
