Shannon Miller Lifestyle

After winning seven gold medals in the Olympics, Shannon Miller started a health and fitness company called Shannon Miller Lifestyle. "I think being an entrepreneur is similar to having the Olympic spirit,” Miller told Inc.com. “You need to be passionate about what you do every day. Women tend to put themselves last, but I want to share with women that it is okay to take time for themselves. That is our primary message." Miller operates two business channels. One is the site itself, which is a magazine-style portal that generates revenue via advertising and product sales. The company's other source of revenue is speaking engagements and endorsements.
