Hi Monica! To get started, would you mind telling us a fun fact about yourself?
I enjoy watching forensic shows and documentaries. I enjoy trying to analyze who did it and why.
Why and how did you start your business?
I started my business as a brick-and-mortar facility in 2018. The reason I started my fitness business was because I noticed that we increasingly face an epidemic with the rise of obesity and health conditions due to what and WHY we eat. Most people are intimidated by gym settings. My goal was to create a space where all felt welcomed, lacked intimidation, and had someone to walk them through a fitness journey for success. Now that we are online, we still ensure that your fitness journey is carefully monitored and supported.
What was the toughest moment in your business journey? How did you go past it and move forward?
The impact of COVID19 was definitely the toughest period. After reopening, I thought I would be ok as I’d tried hiring new coaches to help support my mission. That period was short-lived. However, not having working capital was a huge underlying issue for my business overall. That is when I found out about EGBI to help me with re-strategizing.
What would you tell other entrepreneurs wanting to open their own business?
Make sure you have enough capital before opening a business. CASH is king. Not knowing when or how fast a business will grow is dependent on your capital.
How has EGBI helped you throughout your business journey?
EGBI was extremely valuable to my business journey. The coaches, especially Joni Foster, helped provide a new financial and personal strategy that significantly helped me “reboot” the business.
What would you say to someone that is still unsure about using EGBI’s services?
Give them a try. The coaches and staff are very adept in their respective areas of expertise, and they care about your business succeeding.
