Tom Griffen took a moment to get to know Karen Roberts, Owner of Get Fit in Amarillo, Texas. Here’s what she had to say:
TG: Why did you choose The Mann Group? How has it influenced your business?
KR: I had previously heard Dan speak at The Running Event and was impressed by his ability to lead in a positive, dynamic, and non-threatening manner—causing us to work outside of our comfort zones. This push helped me grow as a person and business owner.
TG: Will you share your company’s vision?
KR: When people embrace an active lifestyle, we want to be their destination. It’s our goal that everyone leaves feeling like they’ve been taken care of beyond their expectations.
TG: What did you do before owning Get Fit?
KR: I was an educator for twenty-two years. I worked as a teacher, coach, counselor, and administrator.
TG: What’s your favorite athletic activity?
KR: Running—and currently my favorite races are ultra-marathons. I love running on trails!
TG: What are your thoughts on the future of specialty run?
KR: I see growth in our future. But we’ll have to make changes in the way we service the on-demand aspect of our business. We’ll also have to continue providing excellent customer service. Our task in 2016 and beyond is to find creative ways to achieve this. I’m an achiever, and I believe our channel is here to stay.
