How did you come up with the idea for your business?

I have been club dancing for years and many women would ask me to teach them what I do, so I finally decided to start doing that. While teaching my students, I would praise and compliment my students and it would make them feel so good. I realized that many people don't just want another fitness program. Yes, they do want to loose weight and feel good about their appearance, but it's more than that. They also want to feel good on the inside and that is where sobo took a turn for something great. Sobo IS fitness for your mind, body and spirit. It inspires, it builds confidence and, best of all, it is perfect for anyone to do at any level and still have fun.

What makes your business unique? Why do you think it will be a success?

Sobo is unique for a number of reasons. It is one of the first companies to combine the in-depth personal development in learning to accept and love yourself just as you are. It is a fun, dance aerobic workout that doesn't make you feel like you are working out, while still burning 400 calories per hour. I know sobo will be a success because it truly helps people achieve their health goals. I also know it will be a success as I run my company with the utmost integrity and that says a lot in itself.

What are some of your top business-related accomplishments, or business lessons learned?

My top accomplishment is coming as far as I've come thus far and not giving up. Pushing forth no matter what circumstances occur; good or bad. The lessons I've learned is that you really have to find others that believe in your product and aren't doing it just for the money. That anything good and worthy takes time, patience and perseverance.

Why should the Idea Cafe regulars vote for you?

Everyone should vote for me because I will be able to help so many individuals reach their health, fitness and overall life goals through my program. I want to inspire others and I know sobo does just that.
