So incredible! Yesterday, I attended the annual meeting and luncheon for the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce … and Pure Barre Winston-Salem won the Truliant Best Small Business in Winston-Salem award for 2017!
I mean, seriously? What an honor. Winston-Salem was literally built from small businesses growing into large corporations (think RJ Reynolds, Hanesbrands, Krispy Kreme, Wachovia/Wells Fargo, BB&T and the list goes on) paving the way for thousands of other startups and small businesses to make their mark on the city. And now, my business has been recognized as being the best. Thank you! To the Chamber, Truliant, my amazing clients, and my incredibly talented team of hard-working employees—Thank you!
So why do I do what I do? Being a small business owner isn’t always glamourous. It can be really hard sometimes. But, I am motivated by the idea that there is nothing worse than wasted talent in this world. You know, the idea that everyone has great potential and can accomplish great things. And for me, that starts with being physically fit to accomplish all those great things. When your body is strong, your mind is strong and you can do just about anything.
Every day, I get to see my clients do amazing things in the studio that I know help them do amazing things outside of the studio. I’ve been fortunate to see clients who walk into Pure Barre completely unsure of themselves and their physical capabilities, transform into confident and strong individuals. I’m extremely fortunate to experience these things on a daily basis. It’s inspiring.
What if you were at the center of a workplace where everyone was pushed to be their best? What if your business was bigger than yourself? What if you could wear leggings EVERY SINGLE DAY?
Yep. Life is pretty damn good.
