Can you describe your business?

 I am an online nutritionist and fitness coach providing individuals (1-2-1 or online groups) with tailored plans to suit their goals/lifestyle, educating them along the way to make better choices. The online element allows me to work with individuals from everywhere to help them get into a healthier routine and shape, through exercise and/or nutrition guidance.

Why did you start your own business?

I have been in the health and fitness industry for nearly 9 years, but have returned to self-employment within the past 6 months to showcase my personal beliefs and passion as best as possible with as many people.

 What are the best things about running your own business?

The ownership of who I am and where I am going. Taking responsibility for my day to day action means that I am in control of my path. A very powerful place to be, when you love getting up every day to go about “business”.

 What are the main challenges facing the business?

Social platforms are saturated with “health and fitness people” so it can be challenging to get a real message out there. Hopefully, people take to my honest and real-life so that I can reach more people.

What advice would you give to someone starting a business?

If you have a dream and you are willing to work at being the best, then grab whatever opportunity you have and go. It isn’t as idealistic as it sounds though, there is a lot of hard work required to get off your feet.

Can you describe your experience of running a business in three words or less?

Hard ’fricking’ work
