Today in the guest chair is Briana Owens, the Founder of Spiked Spin. Briana is the perfect example that when you have a vision in your heart it doesn't matter what else exists in the market or what you think the competition might be you have to go after it. For example, by no means does New York City have a shortage of Fitness classes, but after 5 years of spinning across the city, avid cycling fan Briana decided there was a void—one that she was meant to fill. So, balancing her full-time job in advertising she received her certification in spin and got to work.Briana wanted to create an experience specifically with women of color in mind. And so—Spiked Spin was born. Spiked Spin classes are packed with a diverse array of young women and men committed to getting their bodies and lives together.On today's episode, I talk with Briana about how she got started, but also why it’s so important to have a spirit of discernment, a practice of being in tune with what's on your heart and following what's in your soul. We also talk about the importance of checking your ego and proving out your concept, before you take on debt or do things just for show. She is starting her business slow and steady and going about it in a really smart way.
