This week I was honored to speak on stage to 5,000 coaches at our Team Beachbody Coach Summit. I spoke at Music City Center in Nashville, TN and it was such an amazing experience ever! I am still just soaking in the fact that it is over already. I can remember when Arnauld Nakaha called and asked me to speak. He and I have mentorship calls weekly, so I didn’t think much of the phone call! But let me tell you that when he called a few months ago to ask me to speak- I thought it was about the 22 Minute Hard Corps program test group that I was a part of at the time too! So it took me by total surprise when he asked if I would speak to coaches about how I have built a mid 6 figure income business by mastering social media!
I literally remember FIRST- starting to cry tears of joy and just stood there in shock. And then of course started to jump up and down and finally said yes! I vividly remember that my husband had just returned from his last deployment and he was in the living room unpacking his bags for the last time. I ran out to him and of course he was wondering what in the world was going on. But once I told him he smiled so big and hugged me. I can’t even tell you how much sweeter it was to be able to have him home to share in our celebration— knowing that Beachbody IS the platform that served the reason why this was all possible. Because I said YES to an opportunity. Because I DID NOT allow myself to have a PLAN B. Because I said- enough is enough- this is our path and i’m turning my MESS into my MESSAGE.
So I took a few months to prepare for my topic with my success and speaking partner, Katy! We were going to be presenting on something that we know very well… How To Build A Business Through Social Media!
It’s my jam!
So we went into this with a few things in mind.
First, we wanted our audience to learn how to create content that sparks curiosity. Second, we wanted them to learn and understand that confidence is built with practice and discipline and creating YOUR brand is where success comes from. Next, we wanted to teach how to directly and indirectly invite to online challenge groups and to the business opportunity. And finally, last but not least, really help our audience understand how to create purpose driven content specific to their mission and really how it aligns with Beachbody as a whole.
So, when the day came, I knew that I was ready. I had prayed- a lot and practiced my key points, but one thing I didn’t want was to memorize anything because the best talks come from THE HEART. I want to shine my light and speak my words through God. I really want other women to understand that ‘If I can do this, anyone can do this.’ And the way to make it work is by making the decision to GO ALL IN. There is no secret. There is no one who is going to be there to make sure that you do your checklist- it takes discipline and anyone has the ability to create a life of freedom through health and wellness– and ultimately by using social media!
Social media a skill that we develop. It’s not something that we are born knowing how to use! Treat this business, treat learning to use social media just like learning YOUR JOB! Because this is A JOB! And the beauty is that you get to plan your day and your time!
So remember the WHY behind what you are doing. It needs to be strong enough of a reason to keep you going when the easy road sounds more appealing. Mindset, discipline and consistent daily behaviors are the IT FACTOR of growing a successful business. What sets YOU apart from the crowd? For me, it is a desire to be better than who I was yesterday. A desire to always give my family what they need and deserve and to ALWAYS be present for my kids. I never want to go back to just being ordinary. I never want to have to work that 9-5 that builds someone else’s dreams. I always want to do this. To BE this- my own self, creating my life of freedom and doing it my way. Every step out of my comfort zone has been WORTH IT and each new step will continue to help me grow into the person I am striving to become! And the beauty of this life is that YOU get to decide what success looks like for you.
For ME- success is being at the top of Team Beachbody BECAUSE it means that I am helping THOUSANDS of people. I want to help others CREATE THEIR OWN FREEDOM by taking the first step- working on themselves through their health, wellness and personal development. I have gone from broke, lost, and unhappy to finding myself, leading my kids down a road I WANT them to be on, have dug myself out of the debt hole and have a happy marriage. I have created the life that I dreamed of and am continuing to strive for MY success.
What does it look like for you?
