GymnASKus

Name: Krystal Polychronis

Location: Mt. Juliet, TN 

Type of Business:
Gymnastics Education for Parents & Goal Planning Tools for Gymnasts and Coaches


What does your business do?
The sport of gymnastics is so difficult to understand and it leaves parents scrambling for answers they simply can't find. It's because there is not ONE site dedicated to answering parent questions. With 30 years of combined PROFESSIONAL experience, we can answer their questions...and WANT to!

When and why did you start the biz?
April 2019 - USAG is trying to overcome the Larry Nassar Scandal. They're calling for more transparency for parents but haven’t been able to provide anything currently. There is NO forum, sounding board, or representatives to answer PARENT questions. We want to give parents a platform with Gymnaskus. Provide a took for them to upload their gymnasts videos, get feedback and scores, and create a platform for their questions/answers and message boards.

How Many People are in your Company?
2

Where's your office?
We are currently running this business out of an apartment in Mt. Juliet, TN. Our business will be solely run online or we'd be traveling to different places across the country or internationally to meet and chat with coaches, gymnasts and parents.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part of this business so far is getting the financing to do it correctly. Specifically because we are dealing with under age children's videos being uploaded privately, the cost of a company building that sort of website is extremely costly. Privacy is extremely important to us, and if we're going to do it, we want to do it right the first time.

What's the most fun part?
The sport of gymnastics has taken such a devistating blow over the past two years with the Larry Nassar Scandal. To be honest it's taken a lot of the magic away from a sport that deserves to have magic. It's truly one of the best sports for kids of all ages. It teaches so many fundamental things, that we are passionate about bringing it back into the light. Having the opportunity todo that, and knowing that we have the knowledge to help do that, is the most fun part about starting up this company.

Anything you would have done differently?
I would have LOVED to do this earlier! Circumstances change, and we are here now and that's all that matters.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Get up and running! Again, we are just at the seed stage of the business, so we are looking forward to launching!

What advice do you have for others?
Whatever you decide to do in life, do it whole-heartedly and give 100%. You can do many things well, but you can't do many things GREAT. Be the person who chooses to give your all to ONE project at a time.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
TO be honest, this is the first time we've done anything like this. I am looking forward to working with Idea Cafe. They are the professionals and we are looking forward to learning from them, and taking advice and information they give us and applying it in any way we possibly can.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
University of TN - Haslam School of Business

Prior jobs or business?
Professional National Gymnastics Coach, Director, Manager

Favorite Food?
Italian and Mexican!

What are your pets' names?
Bodie

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Only looking cute in photos...does that count?!

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
I was continually told that the way I break down and explain things to parents, makes it easy for them to understand. It's something they don't get enough of. Therefore, I would love to be able to help out as many parents with gymnasts in their lives as possible!

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
God knows I wouldn't have the courage to do this without him...so THANK YOU!
