I've done what I was supposed to do as a growing adult. I went to college, got my masters degree, and got a job out of college. For a while I was content with the normal paycheck, 8-5 hours, and weekends off. For most people that’s a dream come true! But for me the one year anniversary of work hit and I already knew that I was falling into complacency. There was no opportunity for promotion. I was going through the motions and ultimately felt unfulfilled. I have a true passion for helping others and am grateful for the opportunities I was given to do that. But I knew there was more for me... I knew I could go farther with my passion. Thus I quit my job after a year, moved out of the country, and here I am today! Well in all seriousness, the struggle didn’t end there.
I came to a new country with a one year work permit and that was my chance to start fresh. Yet something in me couldn't let go of the fact that I went to school for 7 years to have a career in medicine. How could I not get a job in that?! Even though I was unhappy, I still ended up accepting a medical position because it was safe. I did it to myself again! I worried too much about what my family and others would think of me, that I took a job that I already knew would make me unhappy. Again I spent a solid month crying to my mom of unhappiness. The worst part is, I never spoke a word about it to Dwight. He was working so hard and was so happy in his job I was embarrassed to let him down. Eventually that came crashing down and my mom spilled the beans to Dwight, and I'm thankful for that. Because instead of disappointment, everyone told me to find something that would make ME happy!
Yes, I am finishing my one year permit with my medical job, but I knew it wouldn't be permanent. The difference is I could finally be ok with pushing the reset button on life! I wanted to continue to help people and make a difference. I needed to find a business that believed in me, that would want me no matter what’s going on in my life, and offered success for the amount of effort I put in. Most of all, I wanted to live my purpose and passion. Right there I signed up to Beachbody, and I have never looked back. It was that simple! Now every Thursday when I get my paycheck I’m wondering why I didn’t I do this sooner! The best part about this journey is that the paychecks don’t mean much, I finally feel like I’m using my purpose, I can only go up, and I’m challenging myself!
Now this is not your traditional job and that's what scares most people. As humans we love staying in our comfort zones (see story above haha). So let me explain Beachbody and what it can possible offer you. This is NOT a get rich quick scheme. It’s hard work and you get out the effort you put in. A lot of people started because they heard "work from home" and quit quickly after because you actually have to work! The difference is after I became a coach, I started to say “WHY NOT ME?” “Why can’t I be successful?”. So I put in the work and guess what…. and I started to see the return. I’m not special and I didn’t just land in the perfect place at the perfect time. My advice to you- just freakin’ do it!! Why not you?!
Being a coach is NOT being a salesperson!! You don't need to sell products to make money. I started my business by sharing my journey on social media. I posted about my workouts, my food, my shakeology, and people online and in person started asking what I was doing. That's how you start a successful BeachBody business. You SHARE your journey and form relationships. If you try to be salesy, I can almost guarantee you will fail. However, if you share your journey and genuinely care about helping other people get healthy then you can do this too!
You do not need to be a personal trainer or at your goal weight to start your own business! If you want to be held accountable for your own health, share your journey, and build a business all at the same time - then this might be for you!
You DO HAVE TIME. If you are exercising already, snap a pic of yourself and post it on social media… there you go you have a business. I have friends who have full time jobs and a family who are seeing success in their business. I am still balancing a job and life with Beachbody! It all starts with one hour a day.
This business changed my life and it can do the same for you. I am accepting 5 new coaches onto team Force! Whether you are looking for a fun hobby for extra cash, you want to help others with their fitness goals, or you want to build your own business and replace your full-time income, I want to hear from you! I will be with you every step of the way, giving you everything that was given to me to be successful.
