Happy Tuesday!! The kids are still in bed and I just finished my 21 Day Fix workout. I’m sitting here checking in with my groups and responding to my emails. I came across a few emails this week that have totally changed my perspective of what I do.
I was thinking about the past 2 years and what they have looked like. I mean have you ever really just sat and reflected on how your life has changed? So I started out as a woman who had 2 kids and felt disgusting in her skin. I was not ‘big’ in the eyes of most. I was in the process of losing about 10 pounds to feel comfortable with my ‘weight’ but I was also depressed, miserable and just unhappy with my life as a whole. But WHY?! My husband is great, I was blessed with two beautiful babies, I was a stay at home mom and I should have been counting my blessings… but I wasn’t. Stress and overwhelm were all that I could think about.
I mean seriously how many of you can relate to that?!?! I had always been active. I always worked out, but my CONSISTENCY had been seriously lacking….NORMAL AGAIN right?!?!
But this time- I decided to go all in- choose a program, not skip a day, pair it with Shakeology and eating better and BAM…. my life started to change. Little by little.
The majority of people who start a fitness program do not finish it! So what was different?! It was the SUPPORT of the new friends I was making with challenge groups, it was my DECISION to change more than I wanted to stay the same- it was my MINDSET because I was surrounding myself with like minded people! It was like a lightbulb moment for me. Seriously how could I not shout this from the roof tops at how down right amazing this program was!
Well, there is a way to do that. It’s called becoming a Beachbody Coach. I will not lie, I remember sitting on the couch watching the “What is a Beachbody Coach” thinking that this is to good to be true. This is just one of those ‘scams’ that we hear about- right? No way could people really build a business- from home- with their kids (if they have any)- with or without a college degree- with or without any background in health and fitness… and the list goes on. It took me almost 5 weeks to DIVE IN. I kept saying ‘yeah… I will do it” But then- I was just on the fence and honestly- too lazy to get up to get my purse to grab my credit card out! BUT– guess what? In reality, it is true and it is totally good! I am PROOF.
I brainstormed all the ways that I could help other people get the same results that I had. I was beyond excited to get started with helping others. I KNEW that if I was a product of the product. If I was the EXAMPLE for others, then I could FOR SURE HELP others do the same thing.
The one thing I will note is that when I started coaching I was not at my goal weight, I had no idea what social media was or even where the heck to find a facebook group. But I jumped feet first and decided that I would take it one day at a time and I would make my focus on helping other people. I will also add this- I was in it because I knew that I had to help change my family. My husband and I had debt stacked against us and we had creditors calling us because we weren’t paying our bills on time. We don’t even know how it happened- but we were drowning and we had to do something. I saw this as an OPPORTUNITY to do something that I was passionate about and earn an income. I remember thinking “WHY NOT ME?”
So this brings me to the point of this blog post. Two years later after pretty much dedicating myself to helping other people get results I have achieved some pretty significant milestones in the Team Beachbody business. I earned the Success Club Trip for my husband and I to Cancun, Mexico this past April, I have attended one coach summit and I will be attending my second on next month, I have attended an all expense paid Leadership Retreat in Scottsdale, AZ, I spoke to over 300 coaches at a leadership training in Pittsburgh, PA this past January, I have helped launch several Elite Training systems with the #1 coach in the network and I have been a guest speaker on several Elite Training Webinars for our company. I am an Elite Coach, I am currently ranked the #1 COACH in the state of Mississippi, I am ranked the #79 coach out of 270,000 + coaches and I am a 7 star diamond coach. I am a wife, mom, daughter, friend and a typical house wife who had a dream of doing something extraordinary. I have the same 24 hours in my day that you have, I just have mastered the art of multitasking, prioritizing (although not always good) and staying focused on my goals.
So this week.. my next big NEWS is that when I was asked to speak at our COACH SUMMIT IN NASHVILLE next month I was pumped! I will be standing on a stage in front of over 1,000 people teaching, talking and hopefully INSPIRING others with my STORY. I used to say ‘I’m just a mom’ but I changed that mindset once and for all. WE ALL HAVE A STORY. WE ALL HAVE A PURPOSE. WE ALL CAN ACHIEVE GREATNESS!!! I have gone from a 2 star diamond to 7 star diamond in the past year! Pretty exciting stuff!!! Words cannot describe how PROUD I am of my Legacy United coaches and all of their success as well! I feel that creating a systematic approach to growing your business is a key to success.
So I’m here today to share with you my top tips.
Below is my presentation for you to listen to and share!!!
Start Now vs. Someday- Every single thing I have done as a coach I was not ready to do. I started my first group before I had my posts ready, I advertised before I had my first customers. I ran my own challenge group before I was at my personal weight loss goal. I had no idea where I was going but I just went for it and figured it out along the way. You don’t have to have a perfect blog, like page or body before you become a coach. Part of the excitement is sharing your story as you go! You don’t have to see the whole staircase you just have to see the first step! That is it!!! If you have a great idea, just do it!!!
Research and take initiative- As a new coach I didn’t have all the answers. I didn’t know anything about social media, facebook, blogging, tweeting, Instagram or hashtags. Heck I didn’t even know what a facebook group was. But instead of sitting here using my lack of knowledge in social media as a reason not to be successful I took initiative to find out more. The most successful coaches don’t wait for someone to tell them what to do, they just do it! The speed of the leader is the speed of the pack! If you want your own future team to grow and blossom then you be that example.
Always self evaluate yourself. Do people know the real you, the struggles, triumphs, what I do to maintain my fitness and nutrition? If something isn’t working, re-evaluate and try again. Always share your healthy lifestyle vs selling it! Always ask yourself if you are living the life you want others to live as well.
Leadership is not a sprint it’s a marathon- Being a leader does not happen over night. Being a leader is sometimes painful, scary and hard. Being a leader takes time, energy and perseverance Being a leader means that you lead with excitement and passion even on days when you do not feel like it. Being a good leader is always improving yourself. The one thing that I live by is this, “Never build a business so that you can be better than someone else, build a business and create a huge life so that you can help others more!!!
So be fearless, follow your heart, lead with passion. If you do those things others will follow you and you will naturally rise to the top!!!
Have you ever considered becoming a Beachbody Coach Yourself?
Then complete this application to be considered for the Legacy United Coach Internship Program.
This is my system for training new coaches and helping them to achieve success as quickly as possible. My goal is to teach you everything that I know and provide you with the tools so that you do not have to re-invent the wheel. My goal is cut down on your learning curve to increase your success.
I think of my team as my FAMILY! I am INCREDIBLY passionate about Beachbody & helping others live up to their FULLEST potential! I know firsthand how incredible this opportunity can be! Not only am I 150% dedicated to your success…but we have an AMAZING team of leaders ready to share wisdom, advice and guide you at YOUR pace! You walk – I walk. You run – I run. You sprint – I sprint!
We SHARE ideas. We HELP one another. We SHARE our failures & encourage one another to keep going.
It’s important to keep in mind that not all coaches have the same goals. Not everyone wants to be a full time coach or be their own boss. There is nothing wrong with signing up a DISCOUNT COACH… (that is, until you try and treat them like a BUSINESS BUILDER!)
As a coach, we want to make sure we focus on WHAT OTHERS WANT and not what WE want…
Instead of making an assumption about their goals…LAY OUT THEIR OPTIONS TO THEM when they become a new coach so that you know how to best mentor them!
There are basically 3 types of coaches who join Beachbody
“Preferred customers” Who just want the awesome discount.
“Wait & see” They want to work on your transformation 1st & then think about sharing their results and helping others OR they just want to do this as a HOBBY
“Full Steam Ahead” They are ready to build this business and start changing lives!
Their needs & goals can change over time. I actually signed up as a coach for the discount & accountability but eventually decided to share my results and build my Beachbody business
Not yet a coach, but want to join?
