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!

Achieve Health & Financial Freedom

sneak peak Achieve Health & Financial Freedom

I know a lot of you are out there thinking. Thinking about how I do what I do. How I’m achieving financial freedom, time freedom, & complete happiness. Maybe you’re wondering if you could do it, too. Or maybe you’re judging me. Either way is totally fine because I know I’m doing what God put me on this planet to do.

SO! If you’ve been thinking about becoming a coach but you’re just not sure, I totally understand how you’re feeling! So, I wanted to invite you to a free 5-day sneak peak in to what coaching involves.

We’ll go over how it really takes very little time (30-60 minutes a day) to build what can turn in to a 6-figure business. You’ll also hear my story & others on the team who were able to walk away from our jobs, but when we started were working 40-80 hours a week.

You owe it to yourself to AT LEAST give it a look. You deserve more than living paycheck to paycheck. I know how that feels, I remember. You don’t have to feel that way anymore.

I would love to have you join us! We start tomorrow, so if you want to join us email ASAP so I can add you to the group <3

Coach Summit 2014

coach summit 2015 Coach Summit 2014

Happy Tuesday lovelies! Sorry I have been MIA. But, if you’re following me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you know I was in Vegas at Coach Summit 2014! I had an absolutely AMAZING time & it was by far the best thing that’s happened to me all year! I wanted to share my journey with you because this opportunity has absolutely changed my entire life. My prayer is that I can touch your heart & help change yours as well.

The reason I want to share all of this is because just a little over a year ago I was just like many of you. I was working at a corporate job, sometimes 80+ hours a week & doing my master’s degree at the same time. I was overworked, underpaid, exhausted, unfulfilled, & just downright miserable. I didn’t have time for anything that I enjoyed doing.

I didn’t have time to go visit my family or to spend with my friends. But, one day I decided to give coaching a shot. Only because I wanted to help people. I didn’t care if I ever made money & didn’t think I would honestly. I had lost 60 lbs a few years ago & just wanted to help people lose weight & change their lives like mine had been changed from my journey.

I am so happy that I gave it a chance because in May of last year I was able to quit my full-time job & move to the city of my dreams. God is so good! I earn substantially more working very part time hours (that I schedule myself!) than I ever did in my director level job & now have so much time to do all the things I love. Everyone deserves to have a life like this, a life that you design. That is why I wanted to share my experience with you about Coach Summit 2014. Because this opportunity has completely changed my life & EVERYONE deserves to be surrounded by a community of amazing people that are healthy, happy, & that help you become a better person & hold you accountable to achieving your goals!

I arrived to Coach Summit 2014 on Wednesday & got to meet one of the coaches I mentor on my team, Tawnay, for the first time in person! We met on my Facebook fan page last year & just knew we were kindred spirits immediately. It was such a blessing being able to get to meet her & fellowship together & also have a bunch of fun!

tawnay Coach Summit 2014

It was great being able to hang out with some of the other coaches on our team in person, too!

So the purpose of Coach Summit 2014 was for all of us coaches to come together & have fun at a ton of parties, workouts live with the celebrity trainers like Shaun T & Chalene Johnson, & go to personal development workshops so that we can become even better coaches & help more people. Our goal is to help people lead healthy fulfilling lives through the coaching opportunity & also with our challenge groups. It was so inspiring to see so many coaches recognized on stage for being completely debt free & also for being million dollar earners. I just KNOW that I will be recognized for debt free next year & million dollar earner before I’m 30! Speaking of being on stage in front of 10,000 , I got recognized on stage for advancing my business & helping a lot of people!

This company is seriously so amazing & has changed my life! We wake up excited every day because we LOVE what we do  &  get rewarded for helping people change their lives. I mean how amazing is that?! God is so good!

Oh and how could I forget!? One of the highlights of Coach Summit 2014 was meeting Chalene Johnson, Shaun T, & Tony Horton!

Oh! Speaking of Chalene Johnson!!! I got my copy of PiYo!!!!!! I started yesterday & it has been absolutely AMAAAZING!! It’s so nice to have a low impact workout that also still really works your muscles, but without crazy jumping & high impact on your joints. I am so excited for my test group starting on July 7th. You can still apply for a spot here, only one spot is left!

And one of my absolute FAVORITE moments was hearing one of the Beachbody challenge winners (who won $100,000) say that before he was waiting to die & now he is just waiting to live. I mean HOW AMAZING is that, that we have a chance to change lives in such a way! We are saving lives & I am so blessed to be a part of it!

So that was my EPIC experience at Coach Summit 2014!! I know I will be taking hundreds of you with me next year & cannot WAIT to help change your life!

If you’re ever interested in doing what I do, or need help on your weight loss journey just shoot me an email & I would be absolutely honored to help you.

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.

As always, don’t forget to  love yourself!
