We had the good fortune of connecting with Joseph Paige and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Joseph, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process was create something for the needs of the world and my culture specifically. Starting my business was risky due to not having a strong knowledge of what to do and how to start. Which led to doubting myself to make decision and ability to run a company. Then this created an hungry inside to push for more out of myself and provide knowledge to unknowing . Re-Start Fitness became my solution to combat statistics in lower economic community Black & Brown by increasing the awareness of Fitness & Wellness.
