We are elated to shine the spotlight on visionary entrepreneurs across the United States thanks to our Visionary Sponsor, SwagHer Magazine and Media!
Today, we introduce you to Beverly K. Johnson!
Introduce yourself to the Visions of Greatness audience.
I'm a health and wellness coach who partners with her clients to develop strategies to demolish old habits and embrace a healthy, whole lifestyle. I'm a personal trainer and nutrition coach with over a decade of experience in the fitness industry. Ms. Johnson has specialties in nutrition coaching, senior aging fitness, and dance fitness.
Who or what inspired you to pursue entrepreneurship?
My journey started as a Zumba fitness instructor. Over the years, my students would ask me certain fitness related questions. That encouraged me to pursue my certifications and provide greater service/value for my students. Those moments encouraged me to move into the entrepreneur space and expand my offerings to the community.

Let's switch gears briefly and discuss the COVID-19 pandemic. What adjustments have you made in your life and business since the pandemic started?
Like everyone else, the pandemic was eye-opening. I used the time to reflect and decide how I wanted life to look going forward. I worked to cultivate my close relationships. I even discovered that I love hiking! As a health coach, my business suffered a significant blow. I had to figure out how to remain connected with the clients as well as grow the business. I built a virtual business and saw an increase in clients and exposure.
What advice would you give to entrepreneurs struggling to balance their life and business?
As business owners, we're always looking for ways to deliver the best products and create contact. That can lead to sleepless nights and no rest. Never be afraid to set boundaries and say "no". You can't serve the world if you're running on fumes.
Share with us one ingredient in your secret sauce for success.
My sauce has been to be my fully authentic self. I show up fully as the girl from Alabama with her country twang who isn't perfect but grateful for the journey that made me who I am. Your clients will be drawn to you and your messaging will connect with them.
