In this video, Entre­pre­neur Net­work part­ner Busi­ness Rock­stars and host Brit­tney Whit­ney speak with Rick Stollmey­er, CEO and Co-Founder of Mind­body. 

Stollmey­er observed that many entre­pre­neurs in the yoga space relied on grass­roots efforts after start­ing from noth­ing and sac­ri­fic­ing much of their net worth. Inspired by these entre­pre­neurs, Stollmey­er left his pre­vi­ous career to start Mind­body in 2000. 

Mind­body is a soft­ware and tech­nol­o­gy plat­form that curates and presents bou­tique fit­ness stu­dios, spas and var­i­ous health ser­vices in the cus­tomer’s area. 

Stollmey­er talks about the real risk he under­went to start his busi­ness. He already had a large fam­i­ly and a mort­gage, but like many entre­pre­neurs, he felt he had a core need to start a busi­ness despite the uncer­tain­ty of suc­cess.
