Hi! My name is Carla and I am a passionate business owner, I have two separate businesses: an Anytime Fitness franchise and a Hot Yoga studio, and I live in Umina NSW Central Coast Australia!
Tell us what you do!
I am truly passionate about helping others live a happier and healthier life through inspiration, mindfulness, health and fitness. I believe everyone deserves to live a happy life and believe this is possible for everyone if we make the right choices.
How did you get started as an entrepreneur?
I went into business with my father and ever since I have just felt inspired and driven to do more and achieve more!
What do you love most about the lifestyle?
I love working for myself! Yes, its very hard work, but I love that my decisions have an impact on others and how they choose to live their lives. I can choose what hours I work, and choose to surround myself with positive people!
I am soon going to start writing a book and developing my inspirational/motivational talks so that I can share with large groups of people!
I Have a few!
Happiness is a choice
Live life to the fullest
You can get one chance so make the most of it
Life happened for us, not to us, make the most of it.
Most inspiring person you have ever met so far and why?
I find this question difficult because I've met so many inspirational people between by parents, clients and friends! One of my personal training clients has lost over 75kg (that is true inspiration).
One piece of advice you would give your younger self
To not give a shit about what people think or say but just to do do do!
What's the bravest thing you ever had to do?
I went backpacking and moved overseas at 21 by myself. It was scary and I was really forced to grow up really quickly!
