Jacob Lee is an entrepreneur and creator. He is the founder of Just Health, an industry-leading fitness brand. Lee also makes fun YouTube videos called The Daily" Ish" vlogs, and refers to them as his creative outlet. Lee was an athlete his entire life, so naturally, fitness is a big part of who he is. Lee started Just Health in his dorm room freshman year, initially just as a personal trainer taking on a few clients and training his friends. He later made T-shirts and programs. It grew, and now they have thousands of members all across the country. As for his videos, He's always had this creative drive. "I think I just needed something to use as my outlet. That's what inspired me to pick up a camera."

What would you say has been your biggest accomplishment and struggle you have faced?

I'm just glad to do something I'm passionate about. That by itself would be my biggest accomplishment. Success is my definition of waking up and being happy with where you're at, and I'm pretty excited. I'm humble but not satisfied, I have so much more planned for the future, and it's inspiring. My single mother raised me, she's an angel. I've been on my own since I was 18, and I've had many challenges I've had to face. Starting a business by yourself is no easy task. It takes time and consistency, but most importantly, you have to be the hardest worker in the room. Nobody is going to do it for you. If it were easy, everybody would do it. I like to think that the challenges we face in life make us better people no matter what. It's just about your perspective

Who has been your biggest inspiration?

Lots of people have inspired me throughout my life. Mentors and friends. I want to make my family proud, my mom mostly. That's all I care about. Inky Johnson is a big inspiration too.

If you were starting over again, what would you do differently and what is your most impactful piece of advice for someone who's looking to follow in your path?

I would've probably just started chasing my dreams sooner, so much time is wasted on hesitation and self-doubt. If you want it, have to do it. If you are following this path or your path, stop caring about what other people think. Don't let others stop you from expressing yourself and following your passion.
