How I turned my passion into almost 70K Working a Part Time

First, I have to say the statement above I really thought about sharing with others. I was really hesitant to share my story, but if someone was like me when I was 26 years on, on unemployment living paycheck to paycheck looking for an opportunity to better their lives, but really not sure where to turn or what to do. For the girl, mom or sister who seemed to do everything right and still found themselves at a dead end. Who attended college, got a job, but still struggled. For the girl who dealt with eating disorders, stress eating, never was the thinnest, tallest or smartest. For the average person who tried their hardest, but suffered from depression. For the mom who is on her toes 24/7-7 days a weeks and just needs a break. This story is my own, its one that is hard t tell, its not something that happened over night and it was generated by a few things. First, FREEDOM. The deep desire to have freedom in my life. Second, a TEAM of caring people. The notion that coaching is not all about some check. Its about the feeling you get when someone tells you, because of you I never gave up and Third, TIME & PATIENCE believing that anyone, even at their drakes times can turn their life around if they have the desire, diligence and hard work to do so and put others first.

Here is my story. For some it might be boring. It took me some time to share about some of the darkest times in my life. A moment where I felt lost and an opportunity that came at the worse possible time in many ways changed who I am today. Dating back to high school I always struggled with my weight. It was something I had to work hard at. Going into middle school I was definitely I guess in some terms chunky. Going into high school with the pressure I developed an eating disorder. I would skip breakfast and eat a carrot for lunch, then stress eat at night. I did get control over this and when I entered college within my first semester I gained the freshman 20. I struggled to eat right in college, suffering from IBS. After college this continued. I didnt treat my body right and was stressed entering the work force. I graduated as a Teacher, but it was something I knew I wasn’t really passionate about. Having worked in college at the counseling center I really enjoyed this type of work, helping others.

When I graduated college with an Education Degree and thousands upon thousands of Student Loans, I was stressed. At a young age I sort of had it all planned out. Get a job, make them off…..Then a beautiful surprise came into my life at the age of 23.  By the age of 24  I was a mom, married and moving back to my home town to buy a house. All things that were not part of the plan, but much better. I married my high school sweet heart. Things seemed great.

At 25 I had been working for a Education company. I worked nearly 50 hours a week traveling and helping provide for our family. Exactly 3 years ago to this day, the unthinkable happened. I was now 8 months pregnant with my second son, William and I was laid off from my company. Panic started to set in. We had a big mortgage, bills, students loans, my company provided me with a car. THINGS got scary. Going into the holidays that year I turned back to my stressful eating! I gained eel over 50lbs . My company told me the day I had my son, would also be my last day with full coverage for insurance and benefits. I would then go on unemployment. It all happened within 3 mins…

Around this time I decided to start my own business, part time.

The company was Beachbody. My parents and brother had talked to me about it before. I had used the products and knew they worked. The main reason I decided to become a coach, was because the start up cost was insanely low and I got a 25% discount on the products. At $15 dollars a month I could own my own business, on top of that I had gained nearly 50 lbs from my pregnancy and stress from losing my job. So really it wasn’t just a financial investment but MORE an emotional and physical one. I had NO idea what I was doing. I had NO health or fitness background. I had no prior social media skills. I knew I had a story to share and I needed this more than it needed me.

I wasn’t the perfect coach. I didn’t have the perfect body. At this point in my life all I had was my story, my weight to lose and lots of students loans, my two babies at home. My main decision to passionately be invested in my business came when I tried to put my interview suit back on about 4-5 months after I had my son. I couldn’t even get them past my hips. I knew it was now or never.

Through P90X, Shakeology and Clean Eating with our Free Team Boom Support group I finally learned how to eat clean, eat healthy and fuel my body with proper nutrition. I am just as normal as everyone else. I love pizza, chocolate and great red wine but I manage how much I have and indulge when I want. I work out now 4x a week and I can proudly say I LOOK forward to working out with my teammates, sharing with my team!

I went on to meet others who also struggled like me in a private support group, we mentored, helped and believed in each other. I started to get more excited about OTHERS who were getting results or wanting to better their lives too. This was WAY bigger than just me, and that is what sucked me in. BECAUSE of my TEAM I am who I am today. THEY are the reason I was able to over come a lot in the past 3 years. Some are not my best friends and people I know we will be in this business together for a very long time!

What makes me MOST excited about this journey is others who join me, not because its for me, but because THEY are excited to make positive changes in their lives. The simple fact someone says because of you I didnt give up, or because of you I am not able to pay for my kids daycare, some extra spending. That is what gets me excited. The payback of freedom it gives others.

In the past 3 years I have been able to earn almost 70K working ‘part time’ for myself, at my own home coaching others and staying accountable with them.  I have also lost over 35lbs and continue to grow and mentor those around me because I absolutely love it. I am not perfect, and I never will be. If I can do this so can anyone else. I am just a teacher, a mom, a friend, a sister and a person who sees the vision in others. I have to because my coach, saw that in me, far before I ever saw it in myself. I pay it forward every single day, if I want to or not, because what if someone never reached out to me? If I can live my life doing something I go to bed so excited I can’t sleep, and wake up excited to get started I will live the rest of my life happy. If someone shares this passion with me, that gets me even more excited. Sure there are ups and downs, there are bad days and their are good. If you are going to be your own boss, that comes along with it. BUT my team and I always say, the good days they are so good!

If I continued down the path of where my weight was headed and depression my doctor was worried about high blood pressure, cholesterol.  All which lead to more stress and worrying.

So at the age of 26 I had my second son. Got laid off. Was no on unemployment. Tried to fit into my interview pants (epic fail) and also decided to start my own business. My husband thought I was nuts. I really didnt see an alternative. PLUS I had been so betrayed and burned before working so hard and within 3 minutes it was taken from me. The trust was a big hurtle I had to overcome, especially since I was 8 months pregnant.

I eventually did go back to work full time, but  I also worked part time on my own business. Investing about an hour a day. The first year I really was just laying down the foundation of sharing my story, trying to be a product of the products, building relationships and didnt focus on the income. If I was just in it for that, then there really is no point. If you are reading this thinking maybe i’ll do that to earn what she did and have no passion invested, then I would suggest this isn’t the right business for you. This is not a get rich quick job. Many people who sign up for that reason, honestly give up. So I would save the $15bucks.

If you are willing to put in 1-2 years of solid passionate work, at least 1 hour a day, then this will and can work for you. The way it works it not sales, that is the last type of people we are. I do not focus on sales, or earning the 25% commission. I focus on a life style change, building a team of passionate customer who really want to change their lives, from there we build relationships to find others who are passionate about the products and challenge groups and I asked them if they would considering doing what I do. Most at that point ask me or are already doing what we do as coaches its no-brainer to them to become a coach and start a part time income as well. When you grow your team you are always helping other coaches on your team as well. Over the past 3 years my income double each year. The first year, like I said was almost nothing compared to what most make full time, but if you are passionate about what we do and do not focus on just the income the first year and just focus on building a strong foundation, doing it for you, for others within 3-4 years you could be earning 6 figure income. The sad thing is, most don’t make it because they want that instant gratification of income right away, its not about that.

This is a legit business. This is for real. This is something you can do whenever you want, whenever it fits into your life. When people tell me they are busy I totally get it. I use to put my kids under the table and do some work, change their diapers, run to work and talk to customers at night. All in all I gave it an hour a day, consistently. I focused mostly on my challengers, my coaches who really wanted to learn.

Intangibles:
I have found a new passion for health and fitness and have never felt better. I’m not trying to sell you that miracle pill, extreme diet, or a whole lot of vitamins you probably don’t need, this is for real. Nothing in this program is easy, you have to work for it!
I have increased confidence in all aspects of my life. I finished 90 days+ of one of the most physically challenging activities I’ve ever encountered. I lost a weight, built some muscle along the way and I feel fantastic.
I can give non-expert nutritional advice based upon my experience. I don’t have a degree in nutrition, but I know what worked for me and am helping others figure out what works for them.
I can help YOU get in the best shape of your life!

WHAT A BEACHBODY COACH ISN’T

If you are looking to get rich quick, then Beachbody Coaching is NOT for you. It’s a lot of hard work and consistency is key. If you put in the time and effort you will see the benefits of coaching through the Beachbody Coaching plan. I tell all my coaches COMMIT TO A YEAR, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve in your business. I look at this business how I look at my own fitness and health, it DOES not happen over night, it’s a consistent effort that takes some time and CONSISTENCY, but within a year you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.

I LOVE SHAKEOLOGY AND BEACHBODY PROGRAMS!

Half my success at the Beachbody Business is I am a product of the product. I have done P90X, Insanity, Turbo Fire, T25, Les Mills Pump and Shakeology every day! I love these products, there for I love what I do. There is not a program that has lead me in the wrong direction. They are all different levels, but all amazing programs! Its not every day I wake up and I am excited to workout, but I know they programs are there for me and once I get going I have NEVER regretted the workout!

When I started P90X I wasn’t all that into the Beachbody Program. I was being coached by my mom. Once I got into the Team Boom group and saw the transformatins of others I decided to really commit to the program. Once I got results it was an instant High I never wanted to leave! From there I simply shared my success and excitement with others. From there it became natural for me to share what was working for me and others. As other customers started to see results they too had that excitement about shakeology and wanted to join the coaching Team Boom. It’s a natural progression. Becoming a coach is a passion and its something others are scared, excited and nervous to take on. I felt the exact same way!!! Sometimes new and change are scary things, but with time and dedication its very simple for anyone to live the life they really want!

I agree with Team Beachbody’s methodology that you need to use their product in order to be able to explain the benefits of the research they’ve done.
