P. 7

 How do you maintain your integrity in an otherwise very competitive and sometimes unscrupulous industry, as business at times can be cutthroat?
You can only control how you respond to any situation. My mission is to do what is right for my clients and me. In my work, I build trust between my clients and me. So, if someone offers them services I do not, I hope that their confidence in me helps them realize that I do not cut corners. I do not want to put a blight on the industry.
What advice do you have for others who have THE dream?
The best advice for anyone is just to show up; it starts with showing up. If your dream is to stream live, write exercises for a fitness newsletter, or anything of that nature, you have to be willing to dedicate the time and effort to making it happen.
It all starts with your willingness to show up even when you don't want to. If you don't make an effort to ensure your business's success, unfortunately, your vision will never become a reality.
What is it about this that makes you do what you do?
In the fitness industry, I enjoy the educational component that I provide my clients and the administrative duties that come with it. I love working with people. However, there are times when I slack doing behind-the- scenes work. I recognize that keeping up with this aspect of my work is important, and I need to show up and be ready to work.
How difficult is it to maintain a work-life balance? What measures do you take to ensure that you have that?
I struggled with this in the past. I used to put work in front of everything else. Over the years, I've learned to value that life is more than just work. I've taken measures such as learning to say no and listening to my mind and body to let me know when I need to get rest.
