What experience did you have (in the field of your venture) before starting as a personal trainer?

I’ve always been athletic playing high school and college sports!

How did you know your business idea was the right idea for you?

Well since I’ve always been athletic and very aware of health it made sense for me to want to help other to follow the same path.

What was the most difficult part about getting started in this industry?

I would say working in corporate gyms who didn’t quite have the same goals that I had when it came to helping people get in the best shape of their lives!

What was the most crucial thing you have done to grow your business?

I would say marketing to the right target market.

How did you find and recruit people that care about your business as much as you do?

Believe it or not I used Craigslist!

What is the most common mistake people make when working out?

I would say not mentally preparing themselves first!

What do you consider a fit body?

I would say someone who is mentally, physically and cosmetically fit.

What motivates you and/or keeps you motivated?

Knowing that I can make a difference in someone’s life through fitness.

What is your favorite aspect of being an entrepreneur?

Knowing that I have the ability to make a difference with my own Ideas!

What do you think is the major difference between entrepreneurs and those who work for someone else?

I believe people who are entrepreneurs have a bigger vision on what they want to attain in life!

John Ilhan once said “This may seem simple, but you need to give customers what they want, not what you think they want. And, if you do this, people will keep coming back.” What are your thoughts on that quote?

I agree with this statement. My reasoning is each human is significant in this world with different likes and dislikes, so you have to draw on that and fined a happy medium that’s works for everyone!

Donald Trump once said that "What matters is where you want to go. Focus in the right direction!" What are your thoughts on that quote?

Simply put without focus and direction you are like a wondering soul not knowing which direction you are going in, rather it be Heaven or Hell!

Richard Branson once said that "A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts." What are your thoughts on that quote?

This is a good point! Since human are always evolving it makes only sense that the business world must to continue to evolve with them.

What advice would you give an entrepreneur who is just starting out?

Make sure you have a complete vision, and make sure that vision not only has a beginning but a ending as well! You cannot attain anything without a complete mental picture that has a diagram to follow.

If you were to start another business, what might it be?

Finding a way to make starting and having a business easier!
