Tammy Hembrow has revealed how she turned a $400 investment into a $38million fitness empire. The influencer, 28, initially created a PDF document with exercises. Tammy then hired someone to illustrate the exercises for the program and eventually launched the Tammy Fit app.

Tammy revealed she was inspired to launch her own brand after studying business at Bond University. ‘I was just like yep this is it. This is what I am going to be. My own boss. I want to start my own businesses,’ she explained.

‘My initial investment was $400 I spent with someone to illustrate the exercises on the programs I was making,’ she told The Australian Financial Review’s How I Made It podcast.‘But then I just wanted to elevate it more and more and then eventually came Tammy Fit the app.’

‘It was the only class that sort of made sense to me. And then I actually dropped out of uni.’  Last year, Tammy made her debut on the AFR’s Young Rich List. The Australian Financial Review’s Young Rich List ranks the wealthiest Australians aged 40 and under.

She juggles her business empire with raising three children, son Wolf and daughter Saskia whom she shares with ex-partner Reece Hawkins and her newborn daughter Posy, whom she shares with her fiancé Matt Poole.

The fitness influencer is ranked 96th with an estimated net worth of $38million. In addition to her two fitness-related companies, Saski Collection and Tammy Fit, she boasts 13.4 million followers on Instagram and 1.31 million subscribers on YouTube.
