I was at PF Changs this weekend talking about making a name for myself in the world of fitness when the bill and fortune cookies came. I reached for my fortune cookie, ate a piece of it and read words that have been speaking to me for the past year. I got goose bumps. I was speechless. I held back tears because I was amongst others who wouldn’t understand my struggle. Not to mention that it was a little odd to be moved by a fortune cookie. These words meant more to me than being LisaFIT. They meant more than working on my brand, marketing myself or promoting my studio.
For the past six months I have working on getting my maiden name back after being married for 15 years. I have made several trips to the Family Court House to request certified copies of my divorce decree and let me tell you – those people work on another time system than I do. I have slept in the waiting area of DMV to change my drivers license. I have been to Social Security Office twice to have them re-type my name on my card. I have been on the phone to airlines and hotels to make sure I retain all my points. The last of my loose ends was having my passport photo retaken to submit a name change. I had to be ambitious in nature to get what most people take for granted – their name. We all have to be ambitious in nature to make a name for ourselves – or to just get what we want. And for me, I wanted the name I was given at birth. I wanted to be Lisa Yee.
So the good fortune of me opening up this cookie and reading how I will make a name for myself – it will go down in my book as a pivotal moment in my life. Now that I am finished getting my maiden name back, I am working full force to get you to know LisaFIT. I have an internal fire that fuels me to make sure that LisaFIT is what you think of when you want change. I have a constant drive in me that doesn’t sleep because I want you to think of LisaFIT when you want more. I have a permanent smile on my face thinking of how LisaFIT can squeeze into your life. I am on a compelling campaign to get you to be happy with your body and healthy in your mindset. If you aren’t happy and healthy then you should come to LisaFIT. I want you to know that you have NO EXCUSES because I am here, Lisa Yee – owner and creator of LisaFIT.
What’s my name?
