February 9th is a special day for me – for two reasons.
<3 February 9th, 2007 is the day my husband asked me to marry him
February 9th, 2014 is the day I signed up to be a Beachbody Coach.
With much fear and trembling and a hysterical “what did I just do!?” call to my sister.
With much skepticism from my husband and family – but with a small spark in my heart that this could be something great.
One year later and I have learned and grown SO MUCH.
I’ve learned about myself – I’ve learned what I’m TRULY capable of. I’ve learned that who I am now doesn’t have to limit my dreams because I can BECOME whoever I chose. I’ve learned the power of a team. I’ve learned the power of having someone believe in you. I’ve learned the joy of helping others accomplish what THEY never thought they could. I’ve learned that no matter how hard some people try to knock me down – I am stronger than all obstacles and success is MY choice.
I’ve learned about business – I’ve learned that being a ‘salesperson’ simply means helping others, and I’m actually pretty good at that. I’ve learned that being a ‘work from home mom’ isn’t an excuse for incompetence. I’ve learned that being successful is synonymous with working your butt off. I’ve learned how to be authentic and caring and true to myself in a sea of social media where spammy – flashy – off-putting ads seems like the ‘easy way out’. I’ve learned the easy way out is never easy or a good way out.
I’ve learned about leadership – I’ve learned that I CAN lead others. I’ve learned that leadership is about authenticity, not telling people what to do. I’ve learned that leadership is about relationship and trust. I’ve learned that leadership means helping others and working your butt off and still getting blamed when things go wrong. I’ve learned that leadership is the hardest thing in the world and takes deep courage.
I don’t say this to boast in any way, but to simply be authentic and honest with you and what this business has done for me. I don’t want to over promise, but I also don’t want you to think this is a small thing that doesn’t bring in much income. I have been able to consistently bring in between $500 – $1300 every month since July (from February to June it was about $300- $500). I have grown my team and my reach by 200% since July and have achieved the rank of Diamond Coach. This is truly just the beginning for me and I plan to at least double my income and reach in 2015.
I am proud of my accomplishments and what those numbers mean for me and my family. But it’s really not about the money or the followers. My biggest joy comes from the lives that I have touched. The stories that I see unraveling before me – women who look at me with tears in their eyes telling me how they have tried everything – and nothing works – and then seeing them lose 15 inches, 10lbs, 25lbs! Hearing the hope in their voice and getting emails from them, thanking me for believing in them, for supporting them and for encouraging them to keep going when they wanted to stop.
That is my biggest and best ‘paycheck’.
In honor of my 1 year anniversary as a coach I’ve decided, beginning February 9th, to release a full week of videos on my YouTube Channel all about being a work from home mom, what I’ve learned along the way and hopefully some inspiration and tips for you if you aspire to do more than just punch in and out from a job where you aren’t appreciated or valued. This life is TOO short – you were made for something more! I challenge you to be courageous and take control of your life and LIVE on your terms.
