We had the good fortune of connecting with Termar Lawton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Termar, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
Giving up is not an option! If I see a plan is going wrong, I adapt and stop the bleeding as fast as possible. One similar mindset that I have noticed across some of the most successful people in the world. Is they do not have a plan B when they go into business or attack any goal for that matter. They instead make adaptations to their plan as they go. That keep them on track with serving their life purpose at the highest level. So now when I make plans I do not make a plan B, but plan A1, A2, A3, etc.
What should our readers know about your business?
Elegant Savagery Coaching is a Lifestyle Coaching business that focuses on helping each of its clients become the best versions of themselves. By not treating the symptoms of depression and self doubt, but by going directly to the source of these issues. To develop true happiness and fulfillment. As a trainer, I quickly noticed a gap in the fitness industry. Most of us look to enhance our bodies as a confidence builder. Which do not get me wrong, that is a piece of the puzzle. But only a piece… It was crazy to find out that so many people that look amazing. Actually feel terrible and empty inside. This is why the motto here at Elegant Savagery Coaching is #MoreThanAesthetics. Because having a great body is awesome, but a great body alone will not make you happy or truly confident. Our Lifestyle Coaching helps feel the gaps by bridging all three pillars of Spiritual, Mental, and Physical Health together. In doing this, you not only get the body of your dreams, but the mental and spiritual resilience needed to operate at the highest level day in and day out. I am most excited about our clothing line (Elegant Savagery Apparel) launching at the top of 2021. We are looking to create a tribe of high operators and the clothing line will help Elegant Savages identify each other when they are out and about. We want you to see some wearing our apparel and immediately know that they are a person of integrity. I would love to say that we are bringing in millions, but not just yet. We are still at the ground level, but we have the drive and vision necessary to reach such heights. The hardest thing we have been faced with is being completely self funded. Keeping the dream alive these last 3 years making well under 10k a year would knock most people out of the game. However, we are still here and we are looking to have our break out year in 2021. What I want people to know about our brand story. Is that we are everyday people that realized the only thing separating us from living the life our dreams. Is a true understanding of oneself combined with passion and purpose.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Honestly, I am a home body for the most part. Nine times out of ten, you will find me ducked off working on my business. However, if they really wanted to have a good time post pandemic lol. My itinerary might look something like this: Go for a hike at Sweatwater Creek State Park or any of the other trails with great scenery that Georgia has to offer. After that, go grab some food somewhere in the city. There is really to many good food spots in Atlanta to name them all, but to name a few. Poke City, Touch Indian Food, and Pure Taqueria are a few that come to mind. When it comes to entertainment, Andretti’s indoor carting, bowling, skating, or hitting a museum is always a good look.
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?
I would like to thank God for being my rock and redeemer. He has instilled a level of resilience in me that I could have never developed alone. Also, special shout out to my close friends that always hold me down and give me a listening ear when I need it. I do not get down on myself often, but entrepreneurship is a lonely road. So it is nice to have friends that I can vent to when needed. You all know who you are and you are much appreciated.
