For this week’s Influencer Tips Thursday, we are learning so much from Addie & how she quit her full time job managing a spa to helping others live a healthy lifestyle through social media. She has so much insider insights so let’s get to it!
Who are you and where are you from?
My name is Addie Pratico and I am currently living in Alabama.
What is your brand about and what made you start it?
My brand is geared towards health & fitness. Living a healthy lifestyle & how to be the best version of you.
Do you have another job outside of being a (blogger/influencer/entrepreneur)?
A couple months ago I had quit my full time job of managing a spa to pursue my passion
of helping others through social media to live healthier lives.
Is it difficult to balance your work life and passion project(s)?
I do not find it difficult to balance it because; I do not consider this work for myself. I
have always been very passionate on helping others. When I found this opportunity of
being able to work from home and help others live a healthier and happy lifestyle, I fell in love with it immediately.
What do you love the most about being an influencer?
I love being able to make that positive impact to others lives. I love the fact that I’m
serving my purpose on helping others and sharing this gift of getting others started on
their own fitness journey.
What do you think is the hardest thing about being an influencer?
Hardest thing for me about being an influencer would be the fact I had to step outside my comfort zone. Before I started, I was barely even active on social media. I was very
private and shy about sharing my life with others on social media. It took me a while to
get out of that comfort zone and I am so glad I did. I’ve now been able to inspire and
motivate others by just sharing my healthy lifestyle on social media.
What are three tips you can give to someone who also wants to be an influencer like you?
The three tips that I can give would be:
1. Step outside of your comfort zone. Do not be afraid to share your lifestyle with others
and get yourself out there. You never know who could be searching for someone just like
2. Personal development. Whether its just reading a gratitude book for only five minutes in the morning or listening to a podcast on your way to work. Personal development was a game changer for me and has helped me keep a positive mindset. Even through social media others can feed off that positive energy you give off.
3. Be okay with failing. It’s okay if something you had planned didn’t go the way you
thought it would. Figure out a different way to implement it and never give up on your
What are your goals and where do you see yourself a year from now? Where do you hope to be in 3 – 5 years?
A year from now I see myself having created a successful and thriving business. I’ll be
leading a team of women who are just as passionate as me about helping others live
Three to five years from now, I will be making six figures in my business and will have
helped so many others get on track with their fitness. I will have helped many others out
there create their own thriving businesses, all while doing this from the comfort of your
Who/what inspires you or keeps you motivated to do what you do?
There a couple people in my life who keeps me motivated.
First is my fiance who has always believed in me from the start. I am lucky that he has
been so supportive of my business and will do what he can to help me in anyway that he
can. He pushes me to work hard and to never give up on myself.
Second would be my own mentor who helped me get started in this business. She is one
of the most hardworking individuals I have met. Just watching her and seeing the way she has been succesful, motitvates me to follow in her footsteps and that by working hard and staying consistant that you can make your dreams come true.
What’s your favorite app aside from instagram?
Pinterest hands down. I am always scrolling through pinterest for recipe ideas,
inspirational quotes, and so much more!
What’s your next project and how can we support you?
My next project is I’ll be focusing on growing my team this month. I feel like this
community is already so supportive and I just love the fact that we are all girl bosses
working hard to be successful.
How important is it to you to make genuine connections/friendships through social
media/in our industry & why?
To show people out there that I truly care about others. I want to help others in anyway
that I can. I love the fact that I’m able to connect and form friendships with others and
really get to know them. By forming those relationships helps me get a better grasp on
what I can do to help them.
What does female empowerment and girls supporting girls mean to you?
For me it means that even if we have different interests/businesses we run, that we can
still support each other. It is not easy being a girl boss and I have so much respect for the
women working towards their own goals and dreams who are willing to hustle and put in the work. It’s so important to keep each other motivated and show support, because it
does get hard at times.
