Mary has been teaching Zumba classes at Goodfellow Air Force Base for about four years. She wanted to be a small business owner so she contacted the Angelo State University • Small Business Development Center and met with Advisor Paul Howard. 

Mary realized she would need to continue with her full time employment and will offer the Zumba lessons in the evenings and weekends. She and a friend planned to lease a building together and Paul suggested a lease agreement be drawn up between them. He also recommended writing a business plan to determine feasibility and direction. Mary says, “The SBDC provided detailed information on what was needed to plan and implement starting a business. They are great resources.”

Jubilee Fitness is now open and teaching how to stay fit by working out and having fun doing it. It has created one job for the San Angelo economy.
