The Day I Became a Full Time Beachbody Coach

:tap tap tap: Um…is this thing on?

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve written a blog post! I’ve wanted to write…really I have. I even have an entire folder on my Google drive with topics and beginnings of posts, and…well…you know I am a single mom and a teacher, and the end of school is pretty crazy soooo writing blog posts was put on the back burner for the entire month of May.

Wait a minute. I think I need to edit a sentence up there.

What I meant to say is —- I WAS a teacher. Was. Past tense. No longer in the business of teaching special education. Ms. K has left the classroom and does not have plans to return.

Pretty sure I was owl #2 from the second day of school until about 3 days ago.

That’s right…my plan of being a full time Beachbody coach may have been delayed one year, but that plan is FINALLY in place!! I am now able to set my own hours, spend my days doing what I LOVE without a bunch of hoops to jump through or crazy federal or state or district guidelines to meet…and the best part of all…I can be PRESENT for my family! I was very sad that I had to miss my son’s kindergarten graduation day, and he wasn’t too thrilled about it either. Unfortunately, there will never be another kindie graduation for me to see, but there WILL be class parties and other school events that I can make sure I attend! And nothing makes my heart happier than knowing I can be there for my babies. ❤

I left off "Work in your pajamas with no bra, in a swimsuit, or in the bathtub." Yes, I've done all three.

So last Friday was my first official day of not being a teacher, and in true mom fashion, I spent a full week catching up on dentist appointments, vet appointments, orthodontist appointments, house cleaning, and catching up on everything else I’ve been putting off while I tried to just keep my sanity during the school year.

But today…one week later…I can breathe. I still have a LONG list of things I want to do, both for my house and for my coaching business, but there’s no rush! I can do a little bit each day and I don’t have to worry about what I may or may not get done before school starts back in August!

This is good news for you too, you know.

I can now devote as MUCH time as I want to my business. Today alone I sat down and followed up on so many messages, planned new trainings for my team, and submersed myself in learning and new ideas. I had a work date with a coach friend and I even read a few pages in a BOOK while waiting to get the oil changed in my car!

So if you’ve been holding off for any reason, whether it’s because you want to join a challenge group to get support in reaching your summer goals, or if you are ready to quit your job outside of them home and be able to have more flexible hours with your family — now is the PERFECT time to reach out to me! I am 100% here to help you with what you need.

This is me…being honest

Ok you guys. I am having some pretty strong emotions today, and I just have to be real with all of you. If you never read any of my blog posts, please read this one all the way through.

I have one burning question that I can’t get out of my mind… WHY AREN’T YOU A BEACHBODY COACH?!!!

Simple enough question, and if this question is directed at you, I can probably guess your response:

*I’m not really into fitness.
*I don’t like to work out.
*I’m not in great shape.
*I don’t like to sell things.
*I don’t have time.
*It’s not my thing.

Some of those reasons are legit, and some of them aren’t. Do you think I liked to work out when I started? NOPE. I wasn’t in great shape. One of the first things I told my sponsoring coach, Kelly, was that I didn’t want to sell anything (and I still don’t sell). Do you think a single mom of two who teaches full time has extra TIME? Not really. But I do it anyway. I actually enjoy coaching, which is a plus. 😉

The reason I am so fired up today is because I just did a little digging. Someone on my team mentioned how much her income had changed in just ONE YEAR. Last October, she made $58.44 as a coach. She had just signed up in July 2013, so she had only been active for about 3 months (and she didn’t even become a coach to make money — she just wanted that 25% discount on her monthly Shakeology order).  This year, this October, she made $942.64. That’s a HUGE increase in just ONE YEAR. Yes, all caps, because I’m shouting. SHOUTING. What could you do with $900?? Especially if you’re a SAHM like she is? That’s a mortgage for some people. Two car payments. Groceries. Savings for your kids’ college funds.

So when she disclosed her change in income, I got curious. What was the difference in MY income in just one year. Well….here you go. Full disclosure:

October 2013 – $265.96

commissions Oct 2013

October 2014 – $763.44

Commissions Oct 2014

I promise you, I’m not trying to brag. I’m not. I mean, one of my coaches in my downline made MORE this past month than I did. If anything, SHE should be bragging. My point in posting this is to show you that there is a HUGE opportunity here. HUGE. And this is just the beginning. I started seriously coaching in July 2013…and I’m making over $700 a month now. Is that a crazy amount? Not at all. But for a teacher, a single mom of two, someone who is in the process of buying a new home and is making every penny count….yeah, an extra $700 can do a LOT for us. And I’m not stopping here. My friend who is a coach above me is making over TRIPLE what I make each month. That’s like bringing home double my teacher’s salary. All from just helping people reach their health and fitness goals.

No, this isn’t a pyramid scheme. No, I don’t have home parties. No, I’m not perfect! I eat Halloween candy and I like Starbucks, and sometimes I really don’t want to exercise. I just want to be lazy on my couch. BUT…this is my job. My second job. And I treat it as such, and not like a hobby. I have gotten to where I am by working hard and putting in the time to be a better person and coach. And because of that, I believe that this company can help me make a change in my life, both financially and in health, and I want to help others do the same.

I don’t tell you this because I’m trying to recruit more people on my team so I can make more money. If you know me, you know that isn’t my intention at all. I tell you this because I want to help YOU be more financially stable and have that level of comfort for your family. The holidays are coming up fast, and I don’t plan to use credit to buy gifts this year. I will be using my Beachbody money for that extra expense. If you want to join me, if you are getting fired up too, if you want some extra spending money or maybe you want to QUIT your full time job so you can spend more time with your family… PLEASE send me a message. Why wait? Think of where you could be in just one year’s time…or less. Let’s do this.
