BusinessUpside: How do you market your business, and which method has been most successful? Camille Jakominich: I market my business on all social media outlets, magazine ads, search engines, and through word of mouth. Most of my current clients have come through search engines and through word of mouth. BusinessUpside: What is unique about your business?

My yoga style is more rehabilitative in nature and specialized for people who are limited in their mobility. BusinessUpside: How do you generate new ideas? Camille Jakominich: I have spoken to many business coaches to generate new ideas and organize my thoughts over the years.

BusinessUpside: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?? Camille Jakominich: Be Patient. I have heard through other entrepreneurs that it takes three years to really get your business noticed, and I would definitely agree.

A client told me that I saved their life. Other clients have told me how grateful they are to be able to move better. I have seen the client’s balance improve, resulting in increased confidence. BusinessUpside: What motivates you to become an Entrepreneur? Camille Jakominich: I am motivated to be an entrepreneur to help people and give my knowledge and experience to those who really need it.
