bianca jade, television host/fitness expert and founder of mizzfit.com
Not so long ago, Bianca Jade had a successful advertising career. With her exceptional design and writing skills, she crafted ad campaigns for global brands. Her clients were happy. Her agency was happy. Bianca, however, wasn’t sure she had found her calling.
After work and on the weekends, she hit the gym. When she was frustrated with work or boyfriend or whatever, she hit the gym. The gym cleared her head, toned her body and made her focus. And it’s where she discovered a new side to her, a fitness alter ego. She wished her office was more like the gym. She adored workout attire, not business attire. She wanted to motivate other women to feel healthier and look better. And so, Mizzfit.com was born.
Mizzfit lifted Bianca out of her office cubicle and into the public eye...like on The Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda. You better believe she's still pinching herself over that one.
