We had the good fortune of connecting with Samantha Martinez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Samantha, what do you attribute your success to?
Social media!

I have a marketing background and i have learned that it is the key to anything you want to do.
Social media will help shape and mold your brand. The way you present yourself on instagram, tik-tok, facebook is super important. Personally for my business content is the most important. The body sculpting industry is all about results and consistency. Therefore i need to ensure that all body pictures with before and after are clear and sell themselves! RESULTS are everything! If pictures are uneven, or crooked, or unclear people will scroll right through them, they need to be exactly the same in order emphasize and demonstrate the difference between a before and after results.

Body sculpting is often referred with the term “snatched”. But my brand represents more than that, it represents transformation in order to help women of all sizes feel beautiful and help them with their body goals!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My business is called “ELLA BODY SCULPTING” . It stands for her body! I perform non invasive treatments on men & women! I love help others feel confident in their body, and with a little bit of consistency they can achieve amazing results!

I started body sculpting because in 2020 i went on a fitness journey and lost 85 pounds along with body sculpting as a weekly service. I implemented it into my fitness journey to help me and it did. I fell in love and fascinated by the process and could not stop thinking about it! I decided to look into training to have as a side hustle. little did i know it would become my fulltime job!

In the beginning it was not easy, but i understood patience was key! I knew from the beginning that social media was going to take a big part in me growing my brand and business and therefore implemented my marketing background into creating and growing my brand.

Some of the lessons ive learned along the way was to focus on one thing only, master it and move on. Patience literally helped me with so much especially in the beginning with being so new to beauty industry.

I want everyone to know that ELLABODY loves to help women & men of all sizes! I love helping others feel as beautiful and confident!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Fish and tails is my favorite! I am obsessed with boiled shrimp so that would be the first place i would take them! After that i would love to go walk around bishop art and check out all the small businesses in the area!

DFW has so many amazing places! You cant ever go wrong!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout is dedicated to my partner Michael and son Nathan.

I became a teenage mom at the age of 14, and my son has understood the meaning behind “working hard” since he was very little. During college, i spend countless hours focusing on obtaining my B.A and eventually completing my MSHRM. He not once complained or questioned not being around so much or how much i would focus on school. He always told me understood that in order to have a better life we have to follow our dreams.

When i started my business it became even harder to be around him and my partner. I began to work countless hours. But they both have encouraged me from the beginning and told me to follow through with what i want to do. Encouraged me to take the risk and leave the corporate world behind to focus solely on body sculpting. They both have been incredibly understanding with the path i have taken and constantly tell me how proud they are of me!

My partner has been my rock and cheerleader since the beginning, He is the reason why my business has grown so much in one year. He has hyped me and guided me through good and hard times.
