A&E Wellness was founded by health conscious couple, Amelia Bachtiar and Earnest Jones Jr., based in San Diego, CA. After they individually created successful Personal Training and Private Yoga businesses, they knew it was time to join forces to make a larger impact in the community.
Why you decided to start your own business?
We decided to start our own business because we both were working as entrepreneurs individually. Being in the wellness industry in San Diego it can be quite discouraging especially because it is quite a saturated market. That is the number one reason we knew that we had to work for ourselves rather than work for someone else because in order to maximize what we could earn we had to cut the middle person out. We decided to join forces because we had the same vision and in order to reach a greater mass of people it was only the natural thing to collaborate and merge. What makes a unique is that Earnest has a background as an athlete and working with cancer patients he has a very scientific and technical background when it comes to the body and nutrition. With my yoga and life-coaching certification I have a way to connect with people on deeper level and spiritually. We truly are the yin and yang to wellness and are able to provide a well-rounded experience for our clients. With us being both people of color we both understand the importance of our representation in the field of entrepreneurship and wellness.
One piece of advice you’d give to someone starting out?
To join a networking group geared towards entrepreneurs/business owners. Because the number one thing about having a business is maintaining and creating relationships. The more people you meet the more exposure you get, and the more help you get building your business with all of the resources you will have in your back pocket. Get out there and build a solid network to support you through the journey of being your own boss!
