How has Georgia State supported you as an entrepreneur?
Georgia State was the best investment in my entrepreneurial career. University Services helped connect me with the unique paid internship experiences with startups and sales organizations that laid down the groundwork for my work ethic, determination and skills. My upper-level business management classes all offered hands-on experiences with running a business. I made key business partner contacts during these exercises.
What does entrepreneurship mean to you?
Entrepreneurship means the freedom to fulfill our purpose in life and make meaningful impact on others.
What inspired the idea behind your business?
The best way to get results with fitness, relationships or work is through community. The feeling of belonging and accountability has been a key driver for my life through my sorority, clubs, sports leagues, founder’s life and fitness journey. I had the idea for SweatPack in 2017 after I worked out at 200+ gyms, played recreational sports for 10 years and connected with more than 100,000 people on social media. I knew there had to be a way of bringing the concept of joining a sports team into group fitness classes.
Share a fun fact about yourself.
I’ve worked out at 430 gyms across the world, connected with over 100,000 globally on social media and have hosted events with over 3,000 guests nationally. I was honored for my passion as Forbes 30 Under 30 and Atlanta Magazine’s Fitness Influencer of the Year.
