Episode Info:

I was convinced that there must be 36 hours in a day for my guest on this week’s #MakeYourMark podcast, Santia Deck. How could anyone pack so much into 24 hours? Santia not only is trying out for the US National Rugby Team, but also plays flag football, runs her own fitness company, is a fitness model, appears on TV shows, and oh, right, has 300,000 followers on Instagram.

“I play USA Rugby, a lot of my time is training, traveling for games. I am also a business owner. My business has taken off quite a bit this last 3 months. I am traveling out of the country almost every month now, I am doing TV work, and I will possibly be on another competition show. I have a talk show that we'll be filming this month. I am doing a lot of things!”

So I was pleased when she was able to give me one of those 36 hours to record this episode! You will truly be inspired by her story of overcoming the bullies, finding her confidence, becoming a collegiate track and field athlete, and trying out for the USA Rugby team, not necessarily by accident! She is the reigning Queen of Abs, and can show you how to transform your body right away! And Santia is only getting started!

“A friend challenged me saying she would get more followers than me. So I started posting all my videos of me working out onto Instagram. People started commenting ‘You have really defined abs for a girl’! That’s when I started posting more pictures and videos of my workouts. My mom said I should start my own brand, and she asked me what I wanted to call it. I said “Princess of Abs” and she said, ‘Why would you be a Princess when you can be a Queen?’? And that’s how it became Queen of Abs!”

Santia and I cover lots of ground, with advice on being a business owner, the power and responsibility of influencing others, and so much more, give this episode a good listen!

“I ended up speaking with a company from Hawaii, and they had a shirt I really liked.  I said ‘I would love to promote your shirt on my platform’ and I had maybe 6,000 followers. They hired me, and that’s how I went from being a broke college student to getting everything for free. That's when I realized I could make a living from this!”
