We wanted to learn more about Shontez and his story. Here’s what he had to say:

Cox: How did the idea for your business come about? 

Davis: When I was on my weight loss journey I would always watch videos to help motivate myself. After I lost weight I thought it would be a great idea to use the Tik Tok platform to motivate other people as well. Considering that I have a disability, I believed that I would be able to really inspire some people and show them that anything is possible.

Cox: Why is your business unique?

Davis: A lot of people struggle with weight loss. I lost 126 pounds in a year and a half as an amputee, so that makes me a lot different. There are a lot of weight loss motivators out there but a lot of them have never lost weight themselves and often times they’re just regular people. I feel like with my circumstances I can relate to more people and show them that everything is possible.

Cox: What was your key driving force to become an entrepreneur?

Davis: Honestly I just wanted to motivate and inspire people. The one thing that I hope to achieve in life, is being able to help others. I truly believe that if I work hard enough I can make that happen

Cox: How did you build a successful customer base?

Davis: I was able to inspire and motivate many people. I’ve shown people that the sky is the limit. I spread positivity throughout my platform and it draws people in.

Cox: What has been your favorite moment in business?

Davis: My favorite moment is easily when my first video got over a million views. Not because of the views, but because of the comments. People talked about how much I motivated and inspired them and that really made me want to keep producing content.
