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.

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

Create Your Dreams

create your dreams Create Your Dreams

In honor of Transformation Tuesday, I wanted to share with you how God has transformed my life.

Because you CAN create your dreams. You CAN live the life you’ve always wanted.

I’m having a total God moment where I’m like “pinch me, is this really my life?!”

I’m standing in front of my new DREAM apartment that I’m moving to in a few weeks in South Park. It’s upstairs from Earth Fare & there’s also a yoga studio, breakfast restaurant, & a Starbucks all in the same plaza. The apartment was just updated & has beautiful granite counter tops (I’ve always wanted those). All my favorite stuff in one place?! What?!

I’m not sharing this to brag I’m sharing this to say The Lord is so amazing!! Why? Because this was my DREAM apartment that I was afraid to go look at because I kept telling myself looking from the outside that I could never afford it. But The Lord has plans to bless us all abundantly & lavish us. He wants that for us more than we do for ourselves!

What you don’t see about my journey or what you don’t know about me is all the stuff The Lord had to change in my heart to make all this happen.

- just a few years ago I was 60 lbs heavier, depressed, smoked a pack of cigarettes a day, got drunk every night, & was a disrespectful nasty person

- I used to be so shy & lacked self confidence so much that I wouldn’t talk to people in public (in fact I avoided it)

- I was made fun of in high school & all my friends stopped talking to me when I gained weight

- I went through many bad relationships & even a divorce at the age of 19

- I was stuck in a rut at a job I hated that gave me no freedom, yet I settled because I was too afraid to change

- just a year ago I quit my job as the Director of Residence Life to follow my passion with my business & change lives & I was scared out of my mind (maybe the most scared I’ve ever been) but listened & trusted in The Lord

- the last year has been absolutely amazing, but the hardest year of my life

- I went through a depression when I first moved here last year, I binge ate, I stayed inside & watched TV & isolated myself because I was embarrassed to talk about my struggles

- I’ve failed so many times it isn’t even funny in my business

But The Lord had amazing plans for my life & once He changed me & my heart in so many areas, He made all of this possible. Everything I went through was for a reason. It’s developed me in to the person I’m meant to be & He is still continuing to work on me.

Every struggle I’ve had, He has turned it around. It’s all taken me to exactly where I was supposed to be. And I’m continuing to trust in Him every step I take & do everything in my life to glorify Him.

I share this story not because life is about material things or fancy places. But because I want to glorify God for all He has made happen in my life. Because none of this would be possible without Him!

Wherever you are right now is exactly where you’re supposed to be. Never give up. Create your dreams. Walk with The Lord & He will help you make all your dreams come true.

Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life

Beachbody Coach Summit  Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life

As most of you may know from how I’ve been raving about the Beachbody Coach Summit 2013, I literally had a life changing experience! The picture above is a photo opportunity I earned with our amazing CEO Carl Daikeler. And if you don’t know have a clue what I’m talking about, I’m a Beachbody Coach & I just got back from our annual conference in Vegas, the Beachbody Coach Summit.

I became a Beachbody Coach in May of last year, but wasn’t really committed until October. Fast forward to today and I’ve now quit my full-time job at the age of 25. 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. 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.

Now that you know a little about my story as a coach, I can get on about  the Beachbody Coach Summit icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life I arrived in Vegas last Thursday & flew in with one of my coaches I mentor, Whitney (see our picture below). We actually met through Beachbody, she was a customer assigned to me & we had never met in person before. I have seen so many amazing changes in not just her coaching business, but also her personal life since I’ve become her mentor. She’s lost over 30 lbs, gotten a promotion, & has increased her business tenfold this month. I’m so proud of her! It was our first time meeting &  I just love her to pieces! We checked in to the MGM Grand, where the conference was, & the life changing experiences started happening icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life

Anyway, after checking in at the hotel we met a bunch of the girls on our team at the pool, around 25 of us went. We spent some time in the sun & then headed to the opening session. Carl Daikeler flew in on cables, he’s so funny! Then we got to hear some amazing success stories from the top elite coaches, new product information, & celebrate together. This was followed by the White Party, which we qualified for since we achieved Success Club consecutively. It was great music, tons of fun, yummy food, & lots of dancing!

Friday then started out with a workout with the trainers from Les Mills Combat at 5:30AM & then another workout with Sagi Kalev from Body Beast directly after that. Once we finished working out we headed to the personal development workshops with the top elite coaches & learned about how to grow our business this year. After that around 5:30PM we did another workout, this time we tried out T25 with Shaun T & it was absolutely AMAZING! I thought I was in good shape & didn’t feel like that after trying it! So, I decided to make it my next program! icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life Then a big group of us went on a party bus & toured Vegas!

Saturday started early again around the same time, but this time we did the super workout on the Vegas strip with all the celebrity trainers. We got to workout with the Combat trainers, the Brazil Butt Lift trainer, Chalene Johnson, Shaun T, & Tony Horton. We even got a photo with Chalene (below – my head is to the far left & is half cut off, but it’s okay) after the workout! Our day was chock full of more amazing personal development that will change my life & my business.

Then the night ended with the Beachbody Challenge winners, which was a total tear jerker hearing these transformation stories! Andy lost 221 lbs. & won $100,000 for his transformation using Beachbody workouts & Shakeology, check out his story - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klVD8HZ61iE&feature=youtu.be. The top 10 coaches of 2012 were then recognized & we ended with a bang at the closing party. This was a lot more fun, dancing, great music, & a wonderful time with a community of positive like-minded people.

This experience was so life changing to me just because of the experiences during this trip. I was able to be around 7,000 other positive people who have the same mission in life as I do: to help others lead a healthy & fulfilling life. I absolutely loved having fun at the live workouts & at the parties! I love the fact that we are all on a mission to help people & the competitive part of me loves the fact that when I’m in the Top 10 next year & Top Coach 2015 that I will be on stage & be recognized in front of thousands of people.

I just KNOW that I will achieve those goals because all of the other top elite coaches started just like me – their first paycheck was only $38 when they first started! Believe it or not, that’s the exact amount of my first paycheck one year ago. I wrote all of this out to just share with you in hopes that I can help change your life. If you read about how my life used to look just a few months ago, you’ll see that anything is possible. Coaching has literally changed my entire life & I now have a life of freedom & happiness & love helping others achieve the same!

photo 2 Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life

If you’re ready to change your life & have thought about coaching, but you’re just not sure if it’s for you I so understand. It took me a couple months before I decided. It’s a big decision & a lot to think about. But, I will tell you my only regret is that I didn’t start sooner. This is the only job out there where you can work part-time but earn way more than a full-time income. I’m well on the way of earning a six figure income & know that since I’m committed & consistent with helping others that it’ll happen. How many other jobs allow you to do this & love what you’re doing? If you’re ready to join, I encourage you to read about how to join my team. I can’t wait to help change your life! icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life
