Entrepreneur Profile: Alexis Love
Motivate With Love | General Services | Houston, TX
Tell us a bit about yourself: My name is Alexis Love. I am a 27 year old professional athlete who is training for the next Olympics. Some would read that line and think it was easy for me, but it was far from that. My love for track and field was birthed out of a traumatic event that I experienced at an early age. Track and field was my escape, my safe-haven: the one place I could feel liberated and no one could take that away. Although I experienced hardships, I have also experienced a lot of victories. I would constantly tell myself that I could be the one person to “make it out.” I was resilient and did not let anything stop me. Now, years later, with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, Two Olympic Trials and a Self-Published book, I can say that I have chosen the right path and want to share it with the world. However, I believe the journey was not for me, but for you. On this journey, Motivate with Love began to blossom. As the founder of this business, I seek to inspire and encourage every individual to be the best version of themselves by spreading true love through speaking, mentorship and my book. Trying to flourish my business and run at the elite level is very difficult. I have struggled to find funding as well as guidance and need help. Nevertheless, I will persevere because I know that there is some teenage boy or girl that is close to their destiny but may not have the motivation and encouragement to move forward; I seek to be "that one."
What inspired your business? Motivate with Love is a brand that inspires, motivates and encourages individuals to be the best version of themselves. Essentially, it is a one-stop shop. Whether you are looking to author your first book, seeking mentorship, need daily motivation or looking to purchase products with positive affirmations. My business is Internet based and offers services both nationally and internationally. All products are inspired with love by Love. Through speaking engagements, books and an online store, my passion is to give back and share how I was able to navigate through life's challenges. I know that I may not be able to change the world but I am determined to show that Love is not just my last name, it is what I do. I birthed this business off of the belief that everyone was created to love and be loved. I started Motivate with Love because I wanted to give back what was given to me. Motivate with Love was created with the intent to be a positive outlet and brand for individuals who are wanting to better themselves. Through weekly blogs, a self-help book, mentorship and an inspirational clothing line, the goal is to motivate with love. My lifelong dream is to make an impact one person at a time. I started my business because I know that a little motivation can go a long way. I also know that while sharing my story I am not only helping others but I am helping myself as well. There has been times where several people have encouraged me on my journey and the impact was insurmountable. While some believe in tough love, I also would like to add that if we motivate with love and treat others as if we were the ones seeking guidance, they tend to be more receptive. I started because I not only wanted to help young teenagers and families but I want to change the world.
Dreams/plans for the future: My dreams for the future of my business is to touch lives worldwide. I want to encourage individuals from all walks of life on both national and international level. Although Motivate with Love is still growing as a business, I know the impact of having reliable resources in arm's reach to fulfill your dreams.
