I learned how to teach aerobics from Judi Sheppard Missett, the founder of Jazzercise. I taught for a while and went on to manage a couple fitness centers in Hong Kong, Then I worked for a university which now gives me a small pension. Social Security adds a tiny bit more. In order to make ends meet, I drive for Uber. I drive and sit.
Many of my passengers are interesting but others not so much. Bottom line is I don’t get to feel like I’m making a difference in people’s lives.
A few months ago I went to the doctor only to find out I was overweight and my cholesterol level was very high. I had a friend who is in great shape and has such a positive attitude. He taught me how I can flood my body with 35 fruits and vegetables every day. Now I’m feeling positive about life AND I’ve already lost 10 pounds. My hair, skin and nails are all vibrant.
That long ago dream of having my own fitness center has changed. I don’t have to have a building any more to create extra income. What I expect from my new business is to create the kind of income I’ve been used to in the past without having a regular job or sitting AND I can finally make it to Machu Pichu.
