WE ARE TWO!
WE ARE TWO!
I can’t believe it. I have to pinch myself! I left a career and job that wasn’t the right fit. I pursued my passion with a mission to help others get healthy and SOLVE their health and weight loss issues once and for all.
And I ended up designing a business I could run from anywhere (and I can! Work from NYC! The pool! Coffee shops! Kaua’i! We got Wi-Fi, we’re good!)
When I started our business two years ago at the end of May 2017, I had one client and a dream.
Now two years later, we have helped over 150 clients gain health, fitness, empowerment, confidence and freedom and we currently have 34 amazing clients! I say WE because it’s not longer just me and I couldn’t do what I’m doing without my two part-time staff - my incredible assistant coach Beth and my assistant Anna.
Sometimes it’s scary to start something new - whether it’s a fitness journey, a new business, a creative adventure, a new relationship - I GET IT!
Practicing starting from ZERO is one of my favorites games in life and I’m about to play it again by moving to Kaua’i! (PINCH ME.)
Here are my tips for STARTING SOMETHING NEW!
Have a VISION. It wasn’t enough for me to start a business, I wanted to run a business that gave me FREEDOM and AUTONOMY so I made sure to design that into my plans! (No offices for me, thank you very much!)
Be up for ADVENTURE. Look, you are about to embark on a journey! It’s going to be challenging at times but also FUN. That’s what makes it an adventure. If it was easy, everyone would live an adventurous life. Instead they lead SAFE and COMFORTABLE lives. Nah thanks.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Did I have doubts when I started my biz? You bet. But I persevered! I didn’t let that bitch Becky get to me (she’s the voice in my head!) When I fell down, I got back up. If I had a rough day, I got a good night’s rest, exercised the next morning and got right back to my goals! FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.
WORK HARD. The people who win in life aren’t necessarily the most talented, they are the ones who work the hardest. Success in life is a game of attrition. Be the last one standing and you win.
MAKE FRIENDS along the way. When we are embarking on new journeys, we have the incredible potential to make NEW friends that will enrich our lives forever. When I took the risk to move to Austin, I made some incredible new girlfriends. When I started a business, I met amazing other business owners who I talk with daily now. FRIENDSHIP is always possible when you embark on a new adventure!
Thank you to our amazing clients who have entrusted us with your health, fitness and well-being. We appreciate each and every one of you.
The only way to go is up and we are bringing you with us squad!
