“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya


MarSha Andrus, prefer to go by MarSha’.

What do you do & what inspires you to do it:  

I am a fitness and dance instructor as well as an author and budget specialist. I also act a little bit. Being healthy, looking great in my jeans and being able to help others reach their fitness goals inspires me to work out and eat healthy. Dance is a way of release for me much like writing and working out. I am great with money so budgets are a unique skill of mine.

How do you define success:  

By simply starting and completing. Does not matter if it blows up and make you a million dollars. The point is starting and completing. Without those two nothing will ever come.

What would you say to motivate a younger you to be successful in life:

Always, always be true and honest to you first and never borrow that which you don’t have a way to give back.

Are you doing now what you’ve always wanted to do or did you have other aspirations previously:  

Actually, I am doing what I have always wanted to do. Write, dance, act oh yes and eat!!!!

What’s the best business or personal advice you’ve ever received:

Never take no for an answer. Keep going. Do as much as you can yourself and ask for help when needed. Pay your taxes. 




What’s something people would be surprised to know about you:

I am a true introvert. 

Do you believe in a higher power: 

Yes I do.

What’s something you can’t live without:


Where do you see yourself in three years:
