I want to tell you a story today about a leap of faith I took seven months ago…signing up as a Beachbody coach. It’s something that was completely out of my comfort zone in many ways and has also been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made personally, professionally, and for my family. So here you go…
Seven months ago, I had started so see some amazing results with the 21 Day Fix and Shakeology. Challenge groups had given me the support and motivation I needed and I was feeling strong, confident, and like myself again! One day I was scrolling through Instagram to find some 21 Day Fix meal plan ideas when I stumbled across my coach Melanie’s page. She had a lot of great posts and after a few months of following her I started to become more interested in coaching. Until then, I honestly didn’t know it was something you could actually earn an income with, so I kept watching and got more and more intrigued. One day she posted this graphic and I knew I had to give it a try:
I knew I loved Shakeology and wanted a discount, and while I loved my job we definitely could use the extra income each month, so I signed up right there and gulped down all my fears and self-doubts. I had learned that my coach, Melanie, was the leader of the #1 Beachbody Team and was the Top Coach of the year out of 200,000+ coaches. She was so positive, so happy, and had such an amazing story. I wanted a bit of that too and figured I didn’t really have anything to lose since I already loved the products! Thankfully Ben has been such an amazing support to me through this and really encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone and give it a shot.
Initially my goal was to pay for my monthly supply of Shakeology and anything extra would be a bonus, but honestly I learned within the first three weeks what amazing opportunities there are in this business– bonuses for coaching, training and support like you can’t believe, trips that are paid for to places like Jamaica, leadership development, friendship…the list really goes on from there.
Not only that, but the emphasis on personal development and leadership training has directly benefited my current job. The skill set that I’m building and relationships I’m forming have been nothing but positive, and the best feeling of being able to help tie up some lose ends financially and see how God has used this to provide has been nothing short of amazing. To top it off, I’ve been able to help friends lose 20 lbs, get back into clothes they haven’t worn in months, go off some medications, and get healthy– things you really can’t put a price tag on.
By nature, I am a driven, goal-oriented, go-getter who really loves helping people and making a difference in the lives of others, so the entire structure of this company has fit my personality to a “t” and feeling confident and fulfilled and being able to live out and develop the strengths I have has completely enhanced our marriage, my role as a mom (and also staying in shape enough to keep up with a busy toddler!), and allowed a fresh and healthy perspective on life.
This is by no-means a get-rich-quick business and one that hasn’t required late nights, hard work, and sacrifices of some things for us. It requires drive and the ability to bounce back from disappointment, the desire to learn and grow and help others, and self-sacrificing leadership. But I promise if you really want it, the rewards far outweigh the cost!
Within seven months, I’ve been able to pay completely for our monthly mortgage out of my Beachbody paycheck, I’m apart of a growing and inspiring team, and get to help raise others up! Here’s my income progression so far as a coach (and note that this is on top of being a full-time working mom, so I maybe spend 1-3 hours a day “working” the business):
If you’re reading this and getting a nervous/excited feeling about what this opportunity could mean for you– whether it’s just wanting to have your Shakeology pay for itself, needing a couple hundred extra dollars a month, or incorporating your interests in health, fitness, and/or helping others into a paying job, I would love to answer any questions you have!
