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!
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:
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.
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.
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!
Does this sound like something you would enjoy? Then I want to invite you to join the team! If you would like more information about coaching on my team, then complete the quick application here and I will contact you personally within 24 hours.
I am only accepting a limited number of new coaches so please don’t wait!
Other ways to get more information: Starting February 23rd, I will be running a 5 day sneak peak in to my business if you would like to know more about coaching on my team! You can ask questions in a closed group and get answers on anything you’d like to know. I will provide you with any information you’d need throughout the week to help you make a more educated decision on joining my team. If you’d like to participate in this group please email me at email@example.com.
Last, I will be hosting a live call on Wednesday February 25th at 8:00PM EST to explain what coaching is all about and to help you understand how you can truly build a business from home (or anywhere that has WiFi). I will go over what the company provides, how you can be successful, what you need to do to get started, and how you can do it too! You can also ask questions and the end and get answers right there! Also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join!
I CANNOT WAIT to hear from you and hopefully welcome you as the newest coach on the team! We are no doubt a great family and have an awesome track record of providing quality service, support, and training to everyone that joins the team! Plus we have lots of fun together, we are all like BFFs! You will definitely not be left out there to figure this out on your own!
Hope to see many of you busy girl bosses on the team soon!!
