Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Lucero Barry, owner of Studio Reset, located in Portland, OR, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business is Pilates. I teach a wide range of people from their early 40s to 80s.

Tell us about yourself

Since I was a child, movement from outdoor activities to dance has influenced my career to become a Pilates teacher. I approached movement as a form of healing and joy. Each day I come into the studio, I feel the energy of healing and joy influence my clients. My intention is to help myself and others to live a more embodied, productive, and meaningful life!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

First and foremost, I think it’s a great accomplishment to love what I do and continue growing in the field of movement. Uncover all the weak links and become whole. Also, I have a beautiful studio, and I never take for granted this inspiring space!

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

I think this business is easy to run. I’m grateful for that. I think the hardest thing is to charge what I think I’m worth. I want to make more money!

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Know someone in the business who inspired you and copy them.
  2. Be well-educated and trained in what you do.
  3. Do what you love, and people will be attracted.

Where can people find you and your business?
