I found out a long time ago that I like to be very spontaneous. I got my business degree and an undergraduate degree in business marketing. I used those skills in the career world for a very long time. As I got older, the more I realized that it just wasn’t for me. It was too routine and not spontaneous- just kind of the grind every day. When life moved me to the New York area, the grind actually got worse. The nice thing about New York is that you end up with a beach home -something to get you out of the city. So we ended up with a beach home down in the Jersey shore and we found this great town, Asbury Park- which is kind of up and coming. I found that I really wanted to be down here more. I just decided that it was time to quit my job and open a business in this town. It brings such a diverse type of tourists and a local population that is open to different types of things. I just kind of felt like there was a hole. There wasn’t some place that I had envisioned and the kind of services that I was use to in New York. Why not bring it here? There are a lot of people who were coming down here all the time – and so that’s what I decided to do.
Sometimes life makes us uncomfortable in our skin with what we are and what we are doing because there is another exciting assignment for you in life and somewhere else that you are in demand. It’s like your inner-man can hear it but you are just not hearing it yet in the physical realm. Once you tap into it and listen you can realize, “Oh so this is what I am supposed to be doing.” And then it feels so good!
Especially in the field I picked because it’s something that is not traditional. It’s not just interesting for me to do, it’s helping people. We have people come in and say, “I learned a breathing technique in this yoga class that I’ve never experienced before. I brought it home with me and I’ve actually quit smoking.” It’s pretty amazing to hear. Or people have come for our workouts and they have actually transformed their bodies faster than they have done in any other gym. It’s not just because we are more holistic, we cross over from the pampering services that make you feel so good – to the services that actually make really big differences.
