9 Common Misconceptions about Beachbody Coaching

9misconceptions 9 Common Misconceptions about Beachbody Coaching

Becoming a coach with Beachbody has seriously been THE best decision I have ever made in my life!! It has not only impacted me professionally (I have built a six figure business in less than 3 years), but also on a personal level. The income is not even why I do this! I started this just as a hobby because I hated my job and was unfulfilled. I would be happy if I made $100 a month, heck $0 and I would still do it! But, seriously I have become more confident, learned so much about myself, improved my relationships, my finances, and met THE absolute BEST friends along the way!

I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I didn’t make this decision, something I didn’t think I had the time for that scared the poop out of me. Well, actually I can but I do not want to even think about that because it is scary. I have no regrets! Well, if I had one it would be that I did not start sooner! I put it off for 3 months because I was scared and felt I didn’t have the time. I was working 80+ hours a week as the Director of Residence Life at a college, doing my master’s degree, and volunteering at church. All while trying to find time to sleep, poop, and eat, you know normal human things icon smile 9 Common Misconceptions about Beachbody Coaching

I have NO DOUBT that being a coach is my PURPOSE in life. It is my passion and I LOVE helping others and encouraging them to grow their own business as well. When I talk to others about my experience as a coach and about the business itself, people who don’t understand can be very skeptical about it. I totally understand because a lot of people are misinformed. So I thought I would write up a blog post about the biggest misconceptions about being a coach with Beachbody that I hear along with my answers to those misconceptions.

1. I don’t have the money to be a Beachbody Coach.

Okay for reals!?! SAY WHAT?!?! This is an opportunity for you to MAKE money, not spend it! As your sponsor, my first goal is to help you cover the cost of your own products which is SUPER SIMPLE to do. You just have to help 3 people a month and I will help you do that! Then we will build up from there. I was able to earn back what I paid to start within the first month, but I was a SLOW STARTER. I am now helping my new coaches earn back what they paid within their first week or two! I have no doubt I can help you do the same. This opportunity has seriously changed my life financially: I am earning a six figure income and I have almost NO DEBT left whatsoever (just a few thousand bucks which will be paid off within the next month). If money is a concern for you, then I am sorry to say this but you are too broke to NOT do this.

 

2. I’m not a sales person.

GROSS! Me neither!! They are icky and pushy and not cool! Do you feel you are being a sales person when you tell your best friend about your favorite nail salon or restaurant? UM NO! It is perfectly natural to share something you love and feel passionate about. That is all this business is about! You are SHARING your love of the products and your experiences. You are NOT selling. I told my sponsor when I signed up the same thing and that I didn’t care if I made money. But, because I truly care about helping others and share my passions it all just clicked. I teach everyone on the team to do the same in a very non-salesy not icky way. You do earn at least 25% commission when anyone you share with purchases from your website. All I literally do is share my story and the stories of others and people just come to me asking me how to join, that easy.

3. I’m not a fitness expert.

Great! Because I’m not either. I did lose 60 lbs back in 2009, but I did not go to school for nutrition or fitness. My master’s degree is actually in higher education. You do not have to be an expert. All you need to be successful is the desire to help others. You don’t have to be a personal trainer or nutritionist. In fact, most of us are not. As a coach, I am an accountability partner, friend, and fellow warrior on the road to getting healthier. The fitness professional stuff is left to the creators of the Beachbody products and everything people need is provided in the DVDs and guides.

4. I don’t have enough time to be a coach.

Really? Do you not have 30 minutes throughout the day that you don’t have anything to do? Even if it’s 10 minutes here and there? How much time do you spend scrolling Facebook? Or watching TV? Beachbody is not a get rich quick scheme, but it does not require a lot of time. I started this when I was working 80+ hours a week, on top of doing my master’s degree and volunteering. Many of the coaches on this team also started their journey while working full-time and have later been able to quit their full-time jobs because their income with Beachbody exceeded their full-time salary. But, that was done in part-time hours. I literally only work 20 hours a week and earn a six figure income. NO WAY IN HELL I regret finding the time do this when I was working 80+ hours and I know you won’t either.

5. I’m not fit!

That is actually an advantage for you! And it doesn’t matter anyway. When I went to my first Beachbody event, I was terrified that I would look like a busted can of biscuits compared to all of the super fit people. But, I was completely wrong! Majority of coaches are not super ripped. MANY coaches are just beginning their journey. People love to follow people who are struggling through the same things or who have gone through it before. Because YOU GET IT. You have an advantage because people will see your results and come to you and ask you what you’re doing! My coach Steph started with the 21 Day Fix and within her first 30 days of the business she had at least 5-10 people a week reaching out to her asking her how they could get started with what she was doing.

6. Beachbody is one of those pyramid schemes!

This is actually the biggest misconception that I come across. Everyone complains about pyramid schemes, except for the few who actually know what they are. A pyramid scheme is actually an illegal business model that requires people to pay money to join and there is no actual product. Beachbody is a network marketing company, which is a business model that has been in existence for many decades. And just because you start first doesn’t mean you will earn all the money. You could start this and surpass me and make more money than I do. We all work as a team and help each other and the structure is really like a railroad track because you earn based on what the ENTIRE team is doing.

7. I need prior business experience!

I was definitely unqualified then, haha. This is a business and to see results you must be committed, but all we do is just share our experience more than anything else. Beachbody spends millions of dollars each year on advertising and the products are a household name. People may not know what Beachbody is, but as soon as I ask them, “you know the people who make P90X and Insanity?” they immediately know what I am talking about. You also don’t have to handle any of the products, returns, or processing because it is all done for you. So no stock piling products in your garage. Ain’t no one got time for that! I had no experience running a business when I started this and it didn’t stop me from earning a six figure income. I know it won’t stop you either.

8. Only the people that started first make any money!

This is something I mentioned earlier, but there is no limit on your earnings. The person that started before you may not even work their business, make nothing, while you could earn $50,000. You are not limited to what anyone who starts before you is earning. The only person directly related to your income is YOU. I did not get in early and I held myself back for a while. Like I said, I was a slow starter. Yet I am still earning a six  figure income.

9. But my friend tried network marketing and failed.

Most people know someone who started a network marketing company and then quit. Guess what? Quitting is not how you succeed! If you just give it one year with consistent effort (30 minutes a day, literally) you WILL see results. If I would have quit when I wasn’t seeing results, I would not be where I am today. Success doesn’t happen over night. The ones who stick it out earn an incredible income. So just learn from those around you who are successful and follow their example. There are many examples of successful coaches on my team that you can emulate, as well as myself. This is something you will have to work for and you can’t sign up and do nothing and expect money to come. But, if you sign up with the right mentor who has an established and proven system that will make a huge difference. I have helped people from other network marketing companies who “failed” at that business and have seen success quickly with my help. I work diligently on their training, mentorship, and professional development. You may be shocked at your potential when these things are available to you. It has changed my life.

 

I hope this eases some of your worries and misconceptions about coaching with Beachbody and gives you more insight on what the company does. Do you have other questions about coaching that I did not cover here? Just submit an application here and I will be in touch with you!

Busy Girl Bosses Build a Six Figure Business

I was just sitting here this weekend reflecting on how different my life was just at the end of the college. I weighed 60 lbs more, my clothes were all tight on me and I felt so uncomfortable in my own skin. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my future, I just went to college because that’s what everyone did. I got my undergrad in Business Administration because I figured it was broad enough to get me most professional jobs. Or so I thought.

The economy was in great shape while I was in college and in 2009 when I graduated, everything tanked. Luckily I was proactive and started looking for any jobs in the business, marketing, or advertising field 6 months prior to graduating. What can I say, I guess I’ve always been a go getter, so much so that I decided during my senior semester of college (probably the most stressful) that I wanted to lose weight once and for all.

I was so uncomfortable, hated having a muffin top, had no self confidence to talk to guys, had no energy, and was eating and drinking myself sick. Literally I would get drunk every night and binge on food because it was my coping mechanism. After feeling fed up with feeling like this every day, I started doing workout DVDs at home and eating healthier. I ended up losing 60 lbs and it literally changed every aspect of my life!

Also at the end of college, since I was proactive with applying for hundreds of jobs every week, I landed a job as the Bookstore Manager at a small college in Georgia. Not my ideal job, but I was just happy to have something in the poor economy. So, then I picked up and moved shortly after graduating college. 

I started working there and I did enjoy it because I felt I was helping students. Again not my ideal job, but I focused on what I did enjoy about it. Within a year of working there, I was promoted to the Director of Residence Life and also started working on my Master’s in Higher Education. I THOUGHT that I wanted to become the Dean of Students. Mainly because my boss said I would be good at it. Looking back, it was never what I truly wanted. I didn’t know what I want, so I let someone else plan my future.

After being in residence life for a few months, I began to HATE my job. I was very GRATEFUL for the opportunity but I was SO UNFULFILLED! Why? Because I let someone else plan my future and didn’t take control of it myself. One of my best friends who was also a co-worker had started this online coaching thing on the side and I kept seeing her posts on Facebook about helping people lose weight. I thought to myself, “how cool! losing weight transformed my whole life, I would LOVE to help others do the same!”

I asked her about it and just thought it was something I would do as a hobby, didn’t think I could earn money nor did I care if I did. I put it off for a few months because I kept telling myself I was too busy for it. I mean I did work 80+ hours a week at times, was doing my master’s degree, volunteered at church, and still had to have time to eat, sleep, and poop!

achievegoals Busy Girl Bosses Build a Six Figure Business

I finally decided though to just give it a shot since there was a 30 day money back guarantee because I was so unhappy that I would CRY every DAY when I had to go to work. On the weekends I would ball my eyes out like a baby knowing I had to go do it again for another week. I did not see coaching as a way out of my job or to earn money, but I just wanted to feel fulfilled and like I was giving back and helping others.

So I set out to start this business BLINDLY! I had no clue what network marketing was, didn’t know a damn thing about social media (other than how to scroll through Facebook and post a picture), and had never owned a business. I told my friend when I started, “I don’t care if I make money and I probably wont!” I had no idea what I was doing, but I wanted to help others feel how I felt losing 60 lbs.

What did I do: I just started posting on Facebook (had maybe a few hundred friends back then) about my transformation. I posted about the accountability and support groups and just asked my friends to join me on a journey to getting healthy together. I just posted about my workout, a healthy meal, or a motivational quote. I just put myself out there (which was scary as hell at first) so that I could help others and add value in to their lives.

Literally stuff this easy:

lunch Busy Girl Bosses Build a Six Figure Business

I absolutely loved what I was doing and the feeling of helping just a few people just filled me up inside. And I was actually making a little extra money because I was just focused on reaching out to help others.

Then fast forward to about a year later. I had gone to a few Beachbody events and seen people sharing their stories who had been in the business for way longer than myself. But, people earning SIX FIGURES within a couple of years, some were MILLIONAIRES within 5-7 years. I was SHOCKED! As I said, it was never about the money. I started this not wanting to make money, but wanting to help people. But, I did hate my job so I got motivated and wanted to reach out and help more people so I could grow my income and quit my job.

Then in April of 2013 I did just that! I am now a 2014 Elite Coach (top .01% of the company), am ranked #109 out of 275,000 coaches in the network, and I have built a six figure business. In fact, in January I earned what it would have taken me SIX MONTHS to earn at my director level job at the college.

And that is just the beginning! I could have been so much further than that, but in 2013 and 2014 I let a lot of fear and excuses hold me back from growing my business larger. Like that is LITERALLY insane for me to say out loud! Well, I guess type out loud haha. Especially since I only started this to just help people.

elite Busy Girl Bosses Build a Six Figure Business

So I’m sitting here today writing this post because I want to pay it forward to other ladies who are busy girl bosses just like I was when I started this. I want to help as many people as possible also have the opportunity to build a six figure business in PART TIME hours. And to do something that you will LOVE and that will change your whole life!

The incredible income isn’t even the best part of this business, it’s all about who I get to work with, the amazing best friends I have made, how much better of a person I have become, how much self confidence I have gained, and I could keep going. The income, free trips, bonuses, and all of that are just added perks!

I truly believe without a DOUBT that this is my CALLING! This is my purpose and why the good Lord put me on this earth! So it is my responsibility to share, share, share!

I am going to be starting a mentoring program on Monday March 2nd where I will personally mentor a group of 10 women in an online setting, on 1:1 calls, weekly team calls, and daily interactions to start laying the foundation of a successful business.

busy girl bosses Busy Girl Bosses Build a Six Figure Business

I have created a system for my team based on what Beachbody has provided us to train all my new coaches and my own personal experience has proven to be extremely successful at getting each new coach started out right. I don’t want to overwhelm you with the business, just show you how to get started, manage your time, and do it all while still having a balanced life and having time for what you enjoy doing. I want to help you earn extra income to replace your salary or just for some extra shopping money, whatever you prefer.

You can make this business work for you! Whether it’s just a few hours a week (as I did when I started) or you want to build it full time, I can help you set goals based around that. I have no minimum expectations and you can truly do as little or as much as you want as a coach! I want you to set your own pace and I will match that pace with your effort. I am not your boss or dictator, but a mentor, coach, and guide.

The new coach training mentoring program can be done from your home, computer, iPad, laptop, or iPhone. If you have Internet access, you can make this business work! I will give you access to all my documents, scripts, guides, training videos, and myself if you join the team. I train all new coaches in a small group setting and I give you my word that I will be involved! I want to teach you how to help and inspire others to be healthy, but to do it with balance and passion!

I will say that most people are afraid to take this leap of faith. They think it sounds like a good opportunity, but most are afraid that they won’t make any money, they’ll have to sell to their friends, or that they don’t know anybody to invite. Trust me, I was in the same boat! I am from a small ass town and didn’t know a lot of people. I was deathly afraid to talk to people because I didn’t want them to think I was trying to sell them something!  So I will truly share with you how I overcame that false belief and how I moved forward and have built a six figure business in less than 3 years!

Take Control of Your Future

meljess Take Control of Your Future

 

Hey yall!!

So I know I have been super MIA. I just got back from an amazing, LIFE CHANGING Tony Robbins conference. So sorry I haven’t been around! Hope you all had an amazing Halloween!!!
I had to just tell you about something!!!

I am getting SUPER PUMPED about a live webinar called “Take Control of your Future” I am hosting with my girl Melissa Carr Monday night!
Here’s just a little bit about my story so you’ll know what we will be sharing!
What becoming a coach has afforded me:
*Quitting my full-time director level job in April 2013
*Quadrupling my income within 3 months after that & now I am earning in a week what it took me an entire month to earn in the director level job
*Moving to my dream city Charlotte last year
*Moving to my dream apartment just three months ago
*Waking up whenever I want, no alarm clocks
*Working whenever I want
*Only working 4 hours/day (yes that’s considered “full-time” coaching)
*Getting paid when I don’t actually work (worked 5 hours total the week I moved; yet made the same amount it would’ve taken me over a month to make in my full-time job working 80+ hours)
*And most importantly HELPING CHANGE LOTS OF LIVES
So, I am handing over that opportunity to 20 people because I want to help you TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR FUTURE & do the same!! I am searching for some fellow entrepreneurial minded people to take control of your future & create a life of freedom!
The first 3-6 months of the internship you will learn from ME & what I do with my business so you can understand exactly how to do it too & earn $100-$300/month if you follow the training. THEN after 6-8 months of following the to-do list & training I give you consistently your pay could be around $500-$1,000 weekly.
That number will double or even triple if you continue to follow
everything consistently & after just 2 years you could be earning a 6
figure income. The CRAZY thing is, the income just keeps increasing.
To learn more specifics come hang out with us Monday night at 8PM EST, just RSVP below!
Spots are limited & we will have a super fun giveaway for all those who join live!! http://tinyurl.com/controlfuture

How to Design Your Life

design How to Design Your Life

Happy Monday friends! I apologize for not posting last week, but I was enjoying myself on vacation on a Royal Caribbean cruise that I earned through my business. I am feeling completely refreshed & have a new found peace & perspective on life. I was reflecting a lot on the plane ride home & realized that one year ago my life was completely different. I was stuck in a job that I hated, working up to 80 hours a week at times, & had no time for anything. I knew I was meant to do something bigger & craved a change, but I didn’t know how to make it happen. Now that God has helped me figure it out, I want to show you as well how to design your life.

As I said, I was so miserable in my current job & where I lived & had absolutely no time to do anything fun or spend time with the people who mattered to me. Ever since I was little I always knew that I was supposed to do something big, but I never thought it would be possible. Then I came across the coaching opportunity & it completely changed my life. This is how I learned that it is possible to live a life I’ve always dreamed of & how to design your life.

I started by writing my goals down & looking at every aspect of my life & how I wanted to spend my time. I thought about my relationships, finances, where I wanted to live, how often I wanted to travel, how much free time I wanted to have, what I would like to help people do, & so on. Then I created a dream board & set it as the background on my laptop. I used this website to create mine. http://www.oprah.com/spirit/O-Dream-Board-Envision-Your-Best-LifeTM. This is the first step on how to design your life.

After designing my dream board, I prayed & asked for God’s help most importantly. Then I reverse engineered my goals. I took each goal & wrote down the steps of what I needed to do to achieve them & broke them down in to monthly & weekly goals. There will of course be other steps you take that you don’t know yet, but God will show you along the way. I worked with my mentor on specific actions of what I should do as well for each goal. This is the second step on how to design your life.

Then I got to work! I scheduled time every day to work on each of my goals, even if it was only a short period of time. I did have to make some sacrifices and prioritize how I was spending my time, but it was completely worth it. I was able to quit my full-time job last year & now have the time to do EVERYTHING I have ever wanted to do. Instead of working 80 hours a week, I now work 20 hours & make my own schedule. I work from home or anywhere that has WiFi; because of that I can pick wherever I want to live & have way more time to travel to see those I care about. I am doing a job that I am so fulfilled doing & love so much I would do for free.

On that note, I just HAD to share a few pictures highlighting the amazing time I had on the cruise last week!

design your life How to Design Your Life

One year ago I wouldn’t have ever imagined life would have taken me where it has today. All of the goals on my dream board I made last year, God helped me achieve them. I am of course working on my 2014 goals & dream board & some of them are already coming true. I wanted to write this today to encourage you that you CAN design your own life & live it out! You don’t have to be stuck or unhappy with what you’re doing one day longer. There IS a solution & a way out. I would be absolutely honored to mentor you & help you design your life this year. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, just shoot me a message on Facebook so we can connect.

Commit Your Work to the Lord

commit Commit Your Work to the Lord

So, I just opened my coach online office today & literally said “HOLY CRAP” out loud when I saw my paycheck for this week. This is the biggest paycheck I have ever received. Funny thing? I worked way less than normal last week, like maybe 15 hours! I wanted to talk about what happens when you commit your work to the Lord.

I am NOT the type to brag at all. But, I am sharing this to just share when you have PASSION & FAITH & don’t let ANYTHING stop you or hold you back, God will bless you tremendously. Commit your work to the Lord & you will be able to live the best life you’ve ever imagined.

I am literally in tears as I write this because to be really transparent, there have been times over the last few months where I began to lose faith & let toxic thoughts overwhelm my mind. 2013 was the BEST year ever, but also the most emotional. Quitting my full-time job & moving to a brand new city & state was like way more emotional than I thought it would be haha.

God for us Commit Your Work to the Lord

As I said, there had been many times lately where I felt like my prayers weren’t being answered & things were kind of like at a stand still. But, in the last few weeks I have adjusted my attitude, done TONS of devotion time & personal development & praying. And just stood FIRM on God’s word. KNOWING that He will ALWAYS fulfill His promise in HIS time. Not mine.

Sometimes it’s hard to come to grips with that since we are human & we constantly battle with our flesh vs. the spirit. But, when you have that STRONG FAITH, that undying PASSION for what you do, & do NOT EVER let the enemy win – ALL your dreams will come true! Commit your work to the Lord & do not ever give up!

Please RT or share with anyone this may help or inspire!

As always, don’t forget to love yourself!
