Many of you have asked me this week “what is Coach Summit 2013?” since I keep talking about it. Well, to sum it up – it’s an amazing & absolutely life changing experience! I figured I would write a blog post on exactly what it is & what I do.
So, I decided to become a coach because one of my co-workers, Lindsey, at the university I was working at full-time kept posting on Facebook about helping people lose weight. I thought, “wow, I want to help people, too. I know just how much of a struggle it is to lose weight.” I talked to Lindsey & decided to start as a coach with Chalean Extreme & Shakeology. That is where my coaching journey started.
I struggled at first because of my lack of self-confidence, I was afraid to talk to people about Beachbody, & I didn’t know if it was God’s will for my life. I prayed for a long time for God to reveal to me what He wanted me to do & had an emotional break down one day telling Him I couldn’t do it without Him. So, I knew if it didn’t work out, it wasn’t His will for my life.
Then God make it very clear to me that coaching was exactly what He wanted me to do with my life. He helped improve my self-confidence, I began sharing with more people, & realized how passionate I was with helping others achieve their goals. Coaching is what I breathe, eat, & sleep, but I also had a full-time job at the university still.
God spoke to me one morning & told me it was time to quit my full-time job since He helped my business grow. I was so scared, but I knew that I had to step out on faith & just trust & know that He would provide no matter what. I cannot tell you how many times a day since I made that decision last month God has revealed to me that I am following His will & that I made the right decision.
I didn’t think it would ever be possible, that I could ever be like one of those successful coaches that I heard talking about quitting their full-time jobs. But trust me, no prior experience to being a business owner or fitness professional like so many think is required.
In April, at the age of 25, I quit my full-time job as I mentioned above. I now get to make my own schedule & work from home. I am almost completely debt free. It has been a life changing journey so far going in to just one year as a coach. I have helped change hundreds of lives. THAT is what gets me out of bed every morning & puts that fire in my belly.
So what is Coach Summit 2013? It is our annual conference & we will be at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. I will be with 7,000 other coaches & surrounded by a community of positive like minded people. I will be getting up to workout at 5AM daily & multiple times a day with celebrity trainers like Shaun T & Chalene Johnson, a photo opp with CEO Carl Daikeler that I earned, tons of workshops on personal development, lots of fab parties, time with my team, & an overall life changing EPIC experience!!! How many other companies do you know that throws on such an amazing annual conference? I’m so blessed, praise God! I really think He designed this job just for me. And most importantly we are all working towards ending the trend & helping this country get healthy!!!!
