Stay in your lane. Stop with the judging. Do you and pay no attention to others that have a negative thing to say about YOUR life.

 

Helping women conquer fitness @ home/gym! Tackling a personal goal, a bikini competition! Free workouts in her IG stories! Let Trissa support you!

Where did the idea for Fitness with Tris come from?

After giving birth to my third child, I wanted to get serious about my health again. But the harsh truth is that my body just wasn’t the same. I came across these at home workouts and immediately decided I wanted to help other women get healthier too!

What does your typical day look like and how do you make it productive?

I am a stay at home mommy but also a health and wellness coach. I get to work when I want and schedule meetings when I want. I get up early to get my fasted cardio in, followed by making breakfast for my kids and doing things all day like playing outside, attending to my garden and going to the local Farmers Market with my kiddos. I always end my night with a movie or show with my husband and a late night lifting gym session. I wake up early and have systems like accountability calls, planners and apps that schedule my calls based on my calendar to keep me organized!

How do you bring ideas to life?

I act immediately. I believe that when you have an idea, it came to you for a reason and if you don’t act on it (write it down, plan how to afford it, how to make it happen, etc) then the idea will go to someone else who will entertain and pursue it.

What’s one trend that excites you?

Makeup. Fashion.

What is one habit of yours that makes you more productive as an entrepreneur?

Getting up early and MAKING TIME.. This seems to be hard for a lot of people and I have seen it first hand ruin someone’s drive tocontinue their dreams. I have no problem waking up early for workouts and calls and no problem lifting at midnight. Whatever I need to do to get me there, is what I have to do. Period.

What advice would you give your younger self?

If you’re sad, talk to someone. Food is good for you. Slow down. Stop taking life so seriously. Try harder in school. You’re beautiful, stop letting people tell you otherwise.

Tell us something that’s true that almost nobody agrees with you on.

We are the ones that are responsible for our own success.

As an entrepreneur, what is the one thing you do over and over and recommend everyone else do?

Stay in your lane. Stop with the judging. Do you and pay no attention to others that have a negative thing to say about YOUR life.

What is one strategy that has helped you grow your business?

Setting up one on one calls with my clients.

What is one failure you had as an entrepreneur, and how did you overcome it?

I was too pushy at first. I had to put myself back in my shoes as a new coach.

What is one business idea that you’re willing to give away to our readers?

Provide something free(meal plan, workout calendar, free hobby FB group). It may not be a lot but if people see how much you care about their success by providing free info before making a sale with them, that sale will be easier.

What is the best $100 you recently spent? What and why?

Investing in myself. AKA, life coaching and hiring coaches to help me through things I’m not great at yet. Remember, it’s not good for YOUR growth if you’re the smartest person in the room.

What is one piece of software or a web service that helps you be productive?

Ipreview is an app I use to plan out my IG posts. It helps me drag photos to where might look the best on my IG brand board depending on color and pose. It also helps me find hashtags and has an area to create the post so when the day comes, I can just copy and paste my caption.

What is the one book that you recommend our community should read and why?

Girl, Wash your Face. Rachel Hollis is an incredible business woman who is clearly successful and knows what she is doing. Taking advice from her IG accounts and reading this book was so beneficial to my business life and personal life.
