As I sit here and reflect on this past year I can’t help but think about how life changing it has been and all that I was able to accomplish. When I first started coaching I didn’t think it would provide an income for my family the way it has. I signed up to be a coach for the discount actually! My husband had borrowed a burnt copy (I know, I know) of P90X from a friend and told me to try it since I wasn’t able to do cardio at the time due to my colitis flaring up. I fell in love with the workout and wanted to buy my own copy and a 25% discount sounded like a great deal!
In September of 2014 I was able to quit my ft job working as a senior Accountant at the same company for 9 years.
At times I lay in bed with my husband and talk about the future we have and what lies ahead in 2015 as a Team Beachbody Coach. Every time we talk about this I am in complete disbelief. July 14th, 2011 will forever be remembered as the day I embarked on a journey to create a new, more secure life for my family. This is the day that I became a Team Beachbody Coach.
I wasn’t hesitant about the opportunity when I first signed up because I wasn’t interested in the business opportunity at the time. Like I mentioned earlier, I was signing up for the discount. I spent 5 months watching behind the scenes before I even considered working the business side and that was 5 months too long. I was inspired by Mindy Wender’s success as a Team Beachbody coach and hopped on her team calls every week in order to learn what she was doing and how I could have the same success if I decided to jump on board.
As I continued on my own weight loss journey with P90X, my passion for helping others was becoming stronger. I continued helping people and studying top coaches in Beachbody and was AMAZED to see that there were some coaches making six figure incomes doing something that I was doing for free.
At this moment I DECIDED.
I wanted to COMMIT.
but……….I also wanted to SUCCEED.
But I had no clue what I was doing at first. My upline coach ended up quitting and most people would have quit as well but I knew that this was something I wanted to make happen for our family.
I wanted to hear that this opportunity was easier than I thought and I could see success soon if I put in the work BUT that is not what I heard. Instead I was told that it is an amazing opportunity and that my INCOME would be a direct reflection of the number of lives that I touched and helped change. This is what Beachbody is all about. It is not about making a ton of money in the Health and Fitness Industry. It is about personal development, changing your own life, then being able to PAY IT FORWARD to your family, friends, and anyone else that life brings into your path. It is about helping others live a healthier and more fulfilling lives.
I SAID TO MYSELF, “WHY NOT ME!”
I took this advice to heart and started treating my business like a business instead of a hobby. Since joining as a coach, I have helped with the brainstorming and branding of Team MisFIT REPublic and we have a team of 500+ coaches and growing. My current income with Beachbody is currently $100-$300 more per month than my full-time job and projected to easily be a 6 figure income by 2016.
Those who have felt lost and hopeless are feeling more alive than ever since joining our team. I receive daily emails that are thanking me for giving them this amazing opportunity. THIS IS WHAT BEING A TEAM BEACHBODY COACH IS ALL ABOUT!
*Coaching is definitely NOT easy, but it is life changing. In the beginning you work hard but you don’t see the income right away. You should NOT be a Team Beachbody coach if your main concern is making money, because you will not make any money if that is what you are focused on. It is not a get rich quick scheme. If you can’t commit to your workouts and treat coaching like a business then you will go nowhere. You will be wasting your time. You cannot place blame for your failures on others. You are your own boss and in control of your own destiny and if you treat this business like a business then you will most definitely succeed.
If you decide you want to CHANGE your life and want to pay it forward then it will take consistency, commitment and dedication. It will take time management and scheduling, observing and modeling a mentor to learn how to be successful. You will need to be CONFIDENT. It will take YOU stepping out of your comfort zone by becoming vulnerable and sharing your story with people! Find your passion and show it to the world, go for no and show up every day and you will have a super successful business, I can promise you that.
The small actions you do every single day will compound overtime and you will be able to build a great business and change thousands of lives. It is not easy but it is worth it!
