She is someone who inspires me to keep it moving and has always driven home to me that done is better than perfect.

In this episode we are going to be breaking down how to start charging for your expertise and stop doing things for free because we are going into 2019 and we are charging for our expertise. You are going to start making money from your side hustle and we are going to get rid of the intimidation and fear that can come with setting our rates and charging folks.

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.
