Daily Inspiration: Meet Ivory Howard

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ivory Howard.

Hi Ivory, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.

I’m a yoga and Pilates instructor that makes it easier for busy, professional women to work out consistently to improve their health and fitness by delivering classes at the time and location they need.

About 53 percent of adults aged 18 and over meet the Physical Activity Guidelines for aerobic physical activity and only 23.2 percent of adults aged 18 and over meet the Physical Activity Guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity.

I started my business as a mobile studio. I made it easy for my clients to workout by delivering yoga and Pilates classes to clients at the time and location they needed. What’s easier than having your instructor show up at your door?

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Although your friends and family love and support you, they may not be able to support you in the way that you need in your business. It’s important to build a network of supportive entrepreneurs in your corner who are rooting for you to succeed, referring clients to you, and open to collaborating with you. I did not always have that until I joined an inclusive community of entrepreneurs. This is the community that I was searching for early in my entrepreneurial endeavors but it did not yet exist. It makes the entrepreneurial pursuit much easier with this kind of support.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m also on a mission to make sure that more women know that exercise and a plant-based diet can prevent many chronic lifestyle diseases and leading causes of death in the United States. I want to continue to make it easier for women to be active to help them avoid preventable chronic diseases like stroke, diabetes and cancer. And if you have a chronic disease, I want you to know that it’s not hopeless. You can live a long, healthy and active life.

Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
Stop thinking. Stop planning. Stop researching. Take action. The clarity you’re looking for is only going to appear when you take action and move towards your goal.
