Over the next few weeks, we are excited to feature a “Business Babies” series on our blog. We have a wonderful group of Fit Mom Ambassadors who are making a difference in the lives of others, as well as making healthy and happy homes for their families. Since so many of our customers and community have businesses of their own, or hope to one day, we are curating some of the best advice from moms who have been there. We hope you will find these feature blog posts helpful and inspiring in your own professional endeavors.
Meet Amanda Tress, CEO of Fit Pregnancy and Parenting, Fitness Business Mentor, and mom of two.
If money and time were no object, what career field would you choose? If you could spend all day with one type of person, who would that be? If you could influence everyone you know to be the very best version of themselves, would that fulfill you? These are questions I have been asking myself for several years.
I am a believer in the value of written goals. I write a listing of goals every year on my birthday, and I reference the list often. Most all of the goals I created for myself center around my main priorities — faith, family, and fitness.
Two and a half years ago, I realized that my full-time marketing job was not fulfilling my passions and centered around my main priorities. I was also overworked and underpaid which was causing stress to both me and my family. I decided to step down from my job to become 100% self-employed. I wanted to follow my dream of being a work-at-home mom and helping other women do the same.
After stepping down from my full-time job, I began to focus on my Fitness Business Mentorship Program to help fellow moms get certified via the National Council of Certified Personal Trainers, and ramp up successful fitness businesses using strong marketing and branding strategies. With this program, I am able to marry my career background in marketing and branding, in addition to my fitness industry experience to help women be extremely successful in a career field that they are passionate about.
My marketing specialty is digital marketing. I work extensively with my mentorees on establishing strong social media channels and loyal tribes via a sound content marketing strategy.
