We had the good fortune of connecting with Trudy Maples and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Trudy, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I have always had an entrepreneurial mindset. I knew I had the grit and the hustle to do big things, so I started my first business when I was 25 and have loved pouring into and serving others ever since. There are so many incredible things about owning a business, and my top two are: Financial Opportunity & Time Freedom. It’s an incredible blessing to wake up each day and design your day around what you love and be able to impact the lives of those around you. Not only that, but I love being able to partner with my husband, Nathan, to strategize and pray about what we envision for our business and our team and be able to work together to execute it. It comes with challenges as does anything, but owning our own business is truly so rewarding!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am currently the Co-Owner and CEO of Inspiring Health & Wellness, alongside my amazing husband. Over the last five years, we have been able to help thousands of men and women transform their health and financial blueprints and for that we are so grateful. Inspiring Health & Wellness is a brand we have created that helps inspire and level up health, leadership and positive change throughout our community and across the world. We are partnered with a global health and wellness company that provides no-compromise products and an incredible residual compensation plan to help transform the lives of men, women and children. We are known for helping people to live a joyful and abundant life, whether that is losing weight, getting better results in the gym, having more energy and managing stress, and/or aging gracefully. We help others share this amazing opportunity and dream BIG! I am so proud to say that our team members have been able to make car and mortgage payments, pay for their kid’s activities, pay cash for a college education or even buy their dream home and create time freedom to enjoy what matters most to them. We are all about family, fun and community! You can feel confident that if you partner with us, you are going to experience life-changing results.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am an Arizona native and currently live in Gilbert, Arizona and I love my city!!! I also love to have friends come to visit and stay with us!! A dream day would include taking them hiking at South Mountain, then back to the house to spend time at the pool before we head off to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants: Bandera or Buck & Rider. I am a total spa gal and I love taking friends to get a massage and spend the day at the Aji Spa at Wild Horse Pass – it’s a must!!! We also have a summer home in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho that we LOVE to entertain at! We love to take friends boating, fishing, kayaking, tubing and paddle boarding on the Spokane River and Lake Coeur d’Alene. And the Farmers Market and Peach Picking are also personal favorites, topping it off with dinner with a view at Beverly’s. Wherever we are, we love to spend quality time with friends and have FUN!!!!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There are so many people that I would like to recognize for their friendship, encouragement and support throughout the years. While the first and foremost recognition will always go to God and my Husband, I want to take the time to shout out my incredible Inspiring Health & Wellness team. This is made up of a group of incredible boss babes who have decided to take action and put their future in their own hands! Together we work to inspire others and in the meantime, they have all inspired me so much. We laugh together, cry together, pray together and even have pajama dance parties together. I wouldn’t be where I am without their love, friendship and pure support!
