How hardwork & dedication made an impact on me.
I come from a family of dentists and physicians, and for a while I assumed (as did my relatives) that I would fol- low suit. But when it came time to pick a career path, medicine wasn’t really calling my name. Then again, neither was fitness. What I really wanted to do was run my own business.
Whether I’m mopping the floor, or researching the latest techniques, I’ve always taken great pride in my work. It’s one thing to get the job done, but another thing entirely to get the job done well. I was raised on hard work and dedi- cation, but by the time I hit my adult years, I realized: it’s all about finding what drives you — in my case, my family.
I fell into medical consulting through my mother — in fact, she was my first client. I started the company because I knew my mother’s practice had a need for it, and I wanted to help her out. She was, and is, a great doctor.
I had been following her tutelage for years, so I was more than qualified for the job. Eventually my aunt and brother signed on, followed by a slew of new clients. My business grew, and with it my love for entrepreneurialism.
Running my own company gave me great pleasure, but it was nothing compared to the pleasure I got from helping my family. And while things seemed to be moving in the right direction, Then it hit me — fitness.
I decided to open CrossFit Impact because it seemed to be the perfect blend of my two passions: entrepreneurship and fitness. My coaches and athletes have since become a second family to me — and if you’ve learned anything so far, you already know how much I care about my family. If there’s one thing I know about running a business, it’s that caring is the key to success. I don’t think of it as my gym, I think of it as our gym. You aren’t just my clients, you’re my friends and my family. Helping you succeed is what drives me. I’ll count myself a successful business owner not when I can take it to the bank, but when you have an incom- parable fitness experience.
