Introduce Yourself! Who are you, and what do you do?
Hi there! Our names are Hannah and Meah, and we are two sisters from the Gold Coast who have started our own business called Alpha Babes. Our business is all about health, fitness and empowering women from all walks of life. We sell online diet and exercise programs as well as mindset programs. Our mission is to get you the body you’ve been dreaming of and help you conquer your mind against negative self talk.
What does the ‘millennial mindset’ mean to you?
Having a millennial mindset for us means not being confined to a mundane 9-5, 40hr week mindset. Having adopted this millennial mindset has allowed us to be creative and ambitious with our business.
How do you think you’ve embraced the ‘millennial mindset’?
Adopting the millennial mindset has meant we have had to become very savvy with all social media platforms and outsourcing business and personal development programs
What’s one stereotype millennials have been given that you dislike or think is invalid?
Probably the worst stereotype in our opinion is that millennials are lazy and are not ambitious. This is anything but true! Since creating Alpha Babes we have come to learn that there are so many people our age who are going into business for themselves and chasing their dreams. Being an entrepreneur means hard work, dedication, and requires a huge amount of effort! Millennials aren’t lazy, they are go-getters!
Tell us one achievement you’re super proud of:
We are so proud to have the chance to chase our dreams and create something we are so passionate about from the ground up. The response we’ve got since starting alpha babes has been phenomenal. Changing the way women view themselves and making a positive impact in their lives is the reason we wake up in the morning.
Tell us one obstacle you’ve had to overcome & how:
Our biggest obstacle in starting Alpha Babes was self-doubt. For a while we doubted our abilities to be able to start this and were really challenged at how big the task was at the beginning. But as time went on and the desire to get stronger, we realised that life was too short not to give it a go. So, one night we sat down together, and over a glass of wine discussed what it was that we feared the most and why. Getting everything out in the open really helped us work through what it was that was holding us back. Talking through the steps and developing an action plan made the whole concept less daunting too!
What advice would you give to other millennials wanting to chase their passions and build something of their own?
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Don’t let doubt hold you back from experiencing what this life has to offer. We are brought up to believe that it’s normal to have a 9-5 job and work 40hrs a week in a job that we often don’t even like. Society has taught us that to have the things we want in life, we need to be tied down to a desk and chair and be so overworked to the point of exhaustion. Well, it’s simply not true. Don’t waste another minute doing something you hate. You really can have it all; you just need to take the plunge. Trust us, you will be so glad you did!
