Supporting those you know

I recently had a similar conversation with a few different people inquiring about ‘how I got started’, (and how they can get started). So I thought my story short story might be worth sharing. I came back to visit family in between season and traveling the globe. I needed to make money, so I decided to start fitness classes. I really didn’t know how to use social media at the time (only 10 years ago…imagine :)), so my only form of advertising was posters and word of mouth. I timidly told ...
