I’m 35 years old, married 7 years, 3 wonderful kids, own two businesses, both in the fitness and wellness field. I love to stay active and fit not only for me but for my family. I have a passion of helping others improve their life and health as well. Pelzfit personal training has been my baby that I have watched progress, fail and progress over the past 6 years and I am excited to see where it can grow to next. I enjoy lifting, ready personal development books, and best yet spending quality time with the family.

How long have you been an Entrepreneur?

I have been working my own business for 5 and 6 years now.

Did you leave a job to become an Entrepreneur?

I sort of did. I left wild land firefighting to get married and when I got married I wanted a career change. The only thing I knew about entrepreneurship was through my father and his business he ran when I was a kid. Now I know it is much harder to stay afloat then I ever dreamed.
