What A Difference 2 Years Can Make!

2 YEARS.

May 6, 2013. I signed up as a Beachbody Coach. – the big picture in the collage is my VERY FIRST CHALLENGE GROUP POST!!!



I remember it took me days to actually post it. It took me over 30 minutes to hit enter after I got the courage to just DO IT! After I hit submit- I CRIED and slammed my computer screen shut bc I was waiting for the negative comments. The backlash… But- it never came! I was SO HUMBLED that I had support! That was the first step of my journey.

I had no idea where it would take me. To be honest– I thought that it was way too good to be true and I didn’t even have a single goal for myself. I kind of messed around for a couple of weeks until I heard this ‘TEAM CALL’ that I decided to finally get on one Monday night.

The host of the call was Melanie Mitro. She talked about how she was a mom of 2 boys from PA. She built her business from her kitchen table with a toddler and an infant. She planned her days. She talked about how much her income was just from helping other people. And then she said something that has stuck with me since that very moment I heard it.

She said.– “WHY NOT YOU.” She was right? Why couldn’t I be successful in life? Why couldn’t I decide to do something more? Why couldn’t I MAKE IT TO THE TOP?

So from that moment on… I studied the leaders. I committed to helping ONE PERSON with this! I put my heart and soul into taking this seriously and I decided that NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENED.. I was going to set small goals for myself each month, take baby steps and ACHIEVE THEM. NON NEGOTIABLE.

 

This was for my family. This was for me being able to stay at home with my kids and not have to put them in daycare. This was for me to be at home when my husband was not deployed. This was to help our family get out of a really ugly financial situation. THIS. WAS. IT.

And honestly… now looking back. HOW THANKFUL I AM THAT GOD PUT THIS IN MY LIFE TWO YEARS AGO!! Blessed. Humbled. Grateful. The list goes on.

In two years Beachbody has:

HELPED US GET HEALTHY
I learned how to set goals and find myself
Pay for groceries
Pay for monthly bills
Help over 1,000 people on their health and fitness journey
Paid for my husband and I to go on several all expense paid vacations/trips.

I have met the CEO’s of our company. HUGGED THEM! SO cool!
I have met every celebrity trainer and worked out with them. PINCH ME!
I have achieve Success Club every single month EXCEPT for June 2013.

I am a 7 Star Diamond ELITE COACH!
I have achieved the status of TOP COACH in the state of Mississippi.
I am an ELITE COACH- the TOP 1% OF THE ENTIRE COMPANY.
I have earned the title of motivational speaker.
I train brand new coaches to become leaders and learn how to grow a successful business.

We have met the best friends of our lives!

Personally- my FAITH, my MARRIAGE, my LIFE is better than I could have ever DREAMED it would be. Seriously. DREAMS DO COME TRUE.

And…

TO DATE- We have paid off over $50,000 worth of debt in the last year and a half. — THANK YOU BEACHBODY!

 

Im sure there is so much more I could list! These are just a FEW things that have happened over the last 2 years and I KNOW it is just going to get better and better!!

Are you someone who is ready to change more than you want to stay the same? Does this sound like YOU? Have you been thinking of asking me about what I do, but just haven’t had the courage to do so? Or maybe you {LIKE ME} are skeptical.

I can help answer all of your questions! Please fill out the application below and we can schedule a time to talk heart emoticon I GENUINELY LOVE PEOPLE! And I want this same success for YOU heart emoticon I will be training 20 people this month to become leaders in this business. It starts with the decision to try! Will you be one?!

Wow- What a Journey This Two Years Has Been!

This is by far one of the most emotional posts I’ve ever done. Feelings of PURE JOY, feelings of anxiety and fear over what people might think or say, feelings of OVERWHELM because never in my life did I think I alone would earn this kind of money by doing a job that I would literally do for FREE. Going from a stay at home mom for 7 years to a woman who set out to earn just a little extra cash to help put groceries on the table… This has become my REALITY in 23 months.

I realized this after almost NOT posting it.

If I don’t talk about it…
If I don’t show you…
You’d have NO IDEA that this is available to YOU too.
I believe if I DIDN’T SHOW you that I am doing YOU a disservice because this is not about the money– these numbers represent LIVES CHANGED. This is less than 2 years of dedication to be a servant leader and how I started— was committing to change myself.

This post is not to brag. Gosh- it has take me almost two years to even consider doing this! It is SO HARD for me to talk about money. I used to joke to my hubby {seriously JOKE around}- that one day I would make more money than he did. I planned to always be a stay at home mom/home maker– so that was always the JOKE- because we know that as mom’s we SHOULD get paid a lot 😉 but we don’t!!

Let me start by saying this:

1. I started this business with less than 140 fb friends. No social media background. I was a SKEPTIC and it took a waived sign up fee to get me to finally ‘pull the trigger’ and do this.
2. I built this from my kitchen table- early in the morning right after my workouts until my kids woke up. Then during quiet/nap time and then after they went to bed. I have never missed family time and I decide when I work.
3. I built this business with passion. I built this business with MANY failures. I built this business while LIVING OUTSIDE OF MY COMFORT ZONE! I built this business while CHANGING into a better person everyday.
4. I could have make MANY excuses why I should have just quit. Stopped. Not kept going when I got knocked down. I don’t have an upline who helps contribute to my business center. I have built my ENTIRE organization MYSELF. I am BLESSED that God has given me the opportunity- I have had a VISION since the day I started and I am NEVER going to quit.
What is the one thing I think has made the biggest impact?

Consistency… through the times when others would have quit is WHY I am where I am.

Let’s break it down.

I have my background in Sports Management with a concentration in Health and Wellness {Ironic that I am now a Health and Wellness Coach and I don’t even need my Bachelor’s Degree for it 😉 }

I have only ever been a student (it took me 8 years to get my bachelor’s degree… yep. I’m that girl) and a wife/stay at home mom! I’ve never had a ‘real’ full time job in my life.

I had tried like every home business ever. –I was going to make it BIG selling Cutco knives when I was 19 (yeah. right.) I have done the whole Mary Kay thing- 31 Bags- Avon and gosh– i think one of those skincare things for like a day… I HAD NO PASSION FOR ANY OF THOSE!!

2 years ago- my husband and I had a hard reality hit- we were STRUGGLING financially– which in turn meant had our marriage on the rocks… big time. We sold my car and went to one vehicle, we started to downsize with what we could and I was looking for a job because we were scared we were going to have to file bankruptcy…

Then- this ‘coaching opportunity’ came up… and well. The rest is history.  I made a CHOICE to create a future for my kids that we could only dream of. Now- the dreams are becoming reality.

With coaching — I jumped in BELIEF first. I learned. I failed. I grew. I failed. I kept going.

My job is to help others achieve:

CONFIDENCE.
HAPPINESS.
HEALTH.
WELLNESS.
LOVE FOR THEMSELVES.
LOVE FOR OTHERS.
FINANCIAL FREEDOM.
AND SO MUCH MORE.

Who can do this job?

ANYONE. Let me say that again.
ANYONE.

Anyone who is okay with being WEIRD like me. Anyone who is okay with going into the unknown and just diving in. head first. and building wings on the way down.
ANYONE WHO WANTS TO CHANGE MORE THAN THEY WANT TO STAY THE SAME!! That’s all it takes. A FIRE in your belly to do something MORE.

It takes time. It takes consistency. It take vision. It takes believe. It takes OVERCOMING FEAR. It takes raising some eyebrows. It takes confidence. It takes patience.
This is a MARATHON. NEVER a SPRINT.

I create a system of duplication. I teach every one of my coaches HOW to do this. I have tested these systems and they are PROVEN to WORK when YOU do the work. I set goals and created benchmarks to achieve those goals. I teach my team the same thing.

So WHY am I posting this? Why now?

Because I want to PAY IT FORWARD. I WANT to encourage and shine light for anyone- but my goal.. if I can inspire ONE PERSON- then this post will be worth it!
Because it’s my sincere hope that you take a deep breath and say “Why NOT me?” Why not go for it? Why not triple my income? Why not go for paid for vacations? Why not begin a business that could blossom into financial freedom for myself and family? Why not do the thing that most won’t? Why not be my own boss and make my own hours.

The ROAD to success is filled with LOTS of obstacles. It is NOT a straight line. It is crazy windy, twirly, ups, downs, overs and unders. It does NOT come easy. It comes with work.

Thinking about it? Wondering about it? Let me know, I’d be more than happy to share all the details with anyone. It changed my life and it can SURE as HECK change yours!
Complete the application to join my next online coach training that begins on May 4th. I will be working with 10 people who are ready to go all in.

Design YOUR Life

I embraced this amazing opportunity of freedom 16 months ago… and I SO BADLY want other women to take advantage of it too. 
At first- I was dragging my feet… saying ‘yes! I am going to do this!’ But then fear held me back for a little bit– fear of the unknown!

Was this real? I had done so many other ‘home businesses’ in the past and quit them all. I wasn’t PASSIONATE about jewelry, bags, makeup, etc! Helping people- working out- nutrition- those are my passion!

I am confident that I can teach you exactly HOW to build amazing success with Beachbody– not because I think that I know it all.. HARDLY, but because I have done it and you can too. This is a busies that will allow you to have FREEDOM and ‘you call the shots’ in your life. To say that this is a blessing is an understatement. 
I choose very carefully who I spend my time with because I make sure that I am 150% DEDICATED to helping my coaches who WANT to succeed– SUCCEED in this business. I am BLESSED to be able to meet so many amazing coaches.

This business is my baby. Beachbody has FOREVER changed our lives. My family and I were once living in a mountain of debt. One paycheck- a stay at home mom, two kids, two dogs, a mortgage, two car payments, student loans, credit cards.. we had it all. We are NOT proud of that time in our lives, BUT we are proud to say that we have dug our way out of almost $20,000 worth of debt in less than one year and if we can do it– you can do it too.
Beachbody has forever changed our lives.
We no longer live paycheck to paycheck.
We are not only setting ourselves up for success, but we are teaching our kids how to live better, manage their little ‘commissions’ and just be positive!
My husband now has options in his career choice.

Best part– we have FREEDOM. That has been my goal- to just create a life of freedom. To be free to be home with my family. To be free to live how we want! To be free to help others in so many different ways! That is my GOAL for life


And you know what? I WANT THE SAME THING FOR EVERYONE!!

Beachbody is not just my ‘job’– B
eachbody is my life. Beachbody can be your life too.

Hands down- joining this company was the best choice I’ve ever made. Rewarding is an understatement. I have met my BEST FRIENDS through this business. Do you know how amazing it is to be surrounded by LIKE MINDED people? Those who lift you up? We help each other! We INVEST in others to help them succeed. That is our job! We TRUST in each other and make a difference! 

Legacy United is our incredible team. We are stitched together with mommies, teachers, professionals (some of those ‘business professionals’ have already quit their full time jobs to build their beachbody business and be at home with their kids), personal trainers, nurses, dog mommies and so many more! We are NOT AFRAID of where this journey is taking us! We are driven, fierce, compassionate, hard working, determined individuals. FEAR is not allowed in our team! We EMBRACE this life, dream and DRIVE! We are creating our freedom and LIVING A LIFE BY DESIGN!

I’m your mentor, your leader, your coach when you join Legacy United.
This month-I am mentoring just FIVE– because I want MORE TIME with each of them!
It’s incredible what can happen with this business. It is MY RESPONSIBILITY to share this with other people! And that goes for everyone– even those skeptics! Because I WAS ONE! And now- I am in the top 5% of all of Beachbody.
I choose to pay it forward and share this blessing with others who are struggling just like I was.
I didn’t have the skills or the knowledge to be a business owner…but I did have…
-DRIVE
-PASSION
-MOTIVATION
-DETERMINATION
-RESILIENCY
-A desire to do MORE with my life
-A desire to have FREEDOM
This business isn’t for the QUALIFIED… its for those who are COACHABLE and not looking for a “Get RICH Quick Scheme!”
It’s for the person who is willing to TAKE RISKS and learn as they go!
You don’t have to be EXACTLY like me but I am looking to connect with women who can RELATE to me because I KNOW that I can lead them effectively and I also know I will ENJOY working with them!
If you….
– KNOW you were meant for something greater…
– WANT to create independence and freedom for your family or maybe your future family, BUT also feel a calling to give back and help others!
– Want to live by DESIGN: Be your own boss- work when you want, where you want doing what you LOVE!
– COACHABLE and willing to spend a year making short-term sacrifices in order to spend the rest of your life enjoying long-term success!
.
If you are reading this and you hear that little voice….and your gut is telling you to GO FOR IT…I want to to hear from you!

My AHA Moment

Tonight- I had a totally ‘aha’ moment as I sat at my kitchen table listening to our Monday night Dream Team call. I had one of those moments where the past year flooded through my mind and it really HIT me– the hard work I have been putting in, the time I spend helping my challengers, my new coaches, my emerging leaders and my seasoned leaders–every step Ive taken really has mattered. 


The one thing that caused that MOMENT for me– as she was talking about the Leadership Retreat that the leaders of Beachbody are going to in Arizona this week… the Leadership Retreat that I qualified for and was invited to in May of this year–

I remember exactly one year ago- sitting in the same spot at the same dining room table.. listening to my mentor talk about how she and a few other leaders on her team were going to this AMAZING ALL EXPENSE PAID LEADERSHIP RETREAT and I just WISHED I could go too. So at that moment last year- i wrote down that I WOULD BE THERE NEXT YEAR. 

One year later- here I am- preparing for this amazing trip with my husband to go and ‘run with the big dogs’ this weekend. It seems so surreal. I feel like ‘why me?’– but then as soon as those ‘why me’s’ enter my head I quickly say out loud- WHY NOT ME!?!!

This is a blessing. A gift. An opportunity. I can’t imagine where my life would be at this moment had I not taken a leap of faith 15 months ago on this whole ‘coaching thing.’
I can about bet we would be bankrupt and still struggling to dig our way out of the hole that we were in. I can bet that we would still be BROKE and fighting about money. I can bet that I would still be feeling defeated everyday. Feeling like there was no way off the hamster wheel. 

BUT- I made a choice– Dustin Bozzo and I made a choice– for me to dive in. All in. And build this team from the ground up. I had 147 FB friends, I didn’t know how to copy/paste, I didn’t know how to use YouTube and I certainly had no idea what a blog even was!

BUT I LEARNED. I read personal development EVERYDAY and still do andI changed my mindset. NO EXCUSES. I took baby steps. I just decided that FAILURE WASN’T AN OPTION.

Here I am. My dreams are coming true. My team is in full bloom and I love that each and every person brings a different dynamic to who and what we are all about 

Life is all in what you make of it. What do you choose? 

Will you choose to join my team? Will you choose something better? Do you want to be a leader? A mentor? Do you want to help just ONE person change their life?
WHY NOT YOU?

I’m looking for 7 people. Not just anyone. 7 DRIVEN, WON’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER, MOTIVATED women to learn a business in less than 3 months. I will teach you and mentor you every step of the way.
Maybe you are a mom who wants to stay at home with your kids.
Maybe you are a military wife and you just get settled and it’s time to move again.
Maybe you are a college student wanting to do more with your life and put yourself through school.
Maybe you are just a woman ready to take on a new path in life. 

Are you ready to do what it takes?
