YouInc’s Game Changer Profiles are interviews with leading entrepreneurs – those that are not only bold enough to start a business, but that are also shaking up their industry along the way. We feel these entrepreneurs have meaningful words of wisdom for others following this path.
These four Game Changer Profiles rank among our favourites because their inspiring messages are relatable to entrepreneurs in every phase. Enjoy!

2. David Patchell-Evans, CEO & Founder, GoodLife Fitness
