Today we brainstormed more ideas after finding out that our main idea has already been created and established. We still see the home cooked meals idea as a possibility but have been coming up with more ideas in case that one fails due to the company that has already been made. - Ryan
I've made progress! These past two weeks I have continued much needed research and conversations with fitness industries. This morning I spoke to JaiPure, an unique yoga studio, just down the road from MKA. This afternoon I'm speaking with an health club out of Colorado and on Friday another local group called CoreFire. The more I talk to these kinds of organizations the more I realize the need for a place for one person to find all of them at once, because of how different they all are. This has pushed me to explore a website platform for my start up. That's when I discovered Wix. Wix is an easy organization that helps create websites for businesses and more. More research and starting over to come! - Ahmed)
Hi! My name is Ahmed Abukwaik and I am the solo group in Start up 101 this year. Going into start up I had an idea that I thought was perfect. My idea revolves around the fitness industry and how to find the right fitness center for you. It made sense to me, and I was ready to execute. In fact, I jumped the gun and envisioned this idea taking flight in the first week of startup. Boy have I been shocked! I have had two calls now with fitness center owners: Retro Fitness and Intrepid Gym. Both are very different, Retro Fitness is a commercial health club and Intrepid Gym is a smaller more specific type of fitness center. Both owners have given me a lot to rethink and implement into my idea. The sticky note is a reminder to myself that I have to tear some walls down in order to build new ones! More research and meetings to come!
