Check Out Mariah Barnhart’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mariah Barnhart.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I was always a very driven and independent child. I was a cheerleader and dancer in high school and fell in love my freshman year with the star basketball player. We had a baby my senior year of high school (I was 17) and he had just joined the navy. We were married two months after our first son was born. I attended FIDM for marketing in SF and then SD and I really enjoyed it. We wound up in San Diego in 2009 and fell in love. We had two more sons in San Diego and only then did I feel I had the energy and time to start to build something and put my schooling to good use. I started a wedding coordinating business with my good friend Kara (blush & brick), which eventually became Chambers Creative when we moved for my then husbands career in 2017.

My friend Bridget Brick (one of San Diego’s top 40 under 40) had told me about a new opportunity with a business called Pruvit. It was a direct sales company but it helped you get into ketosis within an hour. I was sold and hooked. I built an amazing team very quickly and was helping so many people gain their health back. I earned a car with the company within the first five months. I have a large team in Hawaii and predominantly in Southern California and Virginia Beach. My ex and I are divorcing but it has motivated me to dive even deeper into my entrepreneurial side. I do Instagram influencer work for many boutiques and brands around the country but am also using my platform to talk about issues such as autoimmune disease and mental health awareness. Both issues I personally have struggled with. I am also working on a dance fitness certification so I can sharey my passion for movement and health with as many people as possible.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Not at all. Having babies young, being a young, broke military family and then struggling through the pains or military life moving us and then us divorcing.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Dance as therapy and self-expression. An influencer with an agenda to help mental health. Marketing and creation as art. I am also a real estate agent and so some modeling on the side! Lol left that out on the last one.

What does success mean to you?
Living life on your own terms. Financially free.
