I realized I was being a bit of a hypocrite the other day... another coach asked if I talked about money on social media to show others what is possible with this business. I responded that I do, but honestly, I don't talk about it that much. It makes me super nervous. However, I think it is SUPER important that people do know what is possible with this business. It's not about "being rich" or "making it rain" or buying fancy stuff... it's about living and giving. It's really hard to do either when you are broke as a joke.
When I started this business it was simply because I was tired of living paycheck to paycheck (and I was going to try one of our fitness programs anyway, nothing to lose but weight really). Our student loans where sucking up all of our income. We have a lot of student loan debt (6 figures, yay...) thanks to our two advanced degrees.
Not only did I think that we'd never be able to pay them off, it left me feeling anxious & depressed about our financial situation because I knew we'd want to start a family at some point in the near (-ISH, mom, not tomorrow) future. I KNEW that I wanted the option to stay at home with our kids. Plus, it wouldn't really make sense to pay for daycare given that it would eat almost half of my previous job's paycheck each month. I was worried about my future family being brought up in a home where finances controlled our life & decisions... I didn't want that. I couldn't take anymore stress about money and I knew kids would add to that stress.
SO, why do I think it's important to talk about money? If it wasn't for my coach posting a blog about her success as a Beachbody coach I wouldn't be here right now. We wouldn't have been insanely blessed with this opportunity and the business it has produced. IT. IS. CRAZY. Thanks to this opportunity we don't have to worry about financial strain anymore. I CAN be a stay at home mom without weekly arguments about finances. We are going to get to go on lots of family vacations with Beachbody too! BONUS!
God has been so good to us, but I don't want it to stop at us! YOU CAN BUILD THIS BUSINESS TOO and you DON'T have to quit your current job to do it.
It won't build by itself, but if you have a vision for your life...
If you have a passion for serving others...
If you believe in working hard...
If you are tired of living paycheck to paycheck...
...I cannot encourage you enough to message me to learn more about this "fitness" thing. You don't have to live with financial strain. This IS a way out. I KNOW I was super skeptical in the beginning too. It DOES sound too good to be true...but anyone that knows me knows that I'm a straight shooter. #ruththetruth
You have nothing to lose by learning more about it. If you know someone who you think could rock this business, share it with them! If you want a peak, send me a message or fill out THIS APPLICATION for more information.
And... I mean, who doesn't want to get paid to get fit and healthy? To become a better person? Be their own boss? Travel as much as you desire? I'm not going to sit here and tell you that fitness is my main passion, it's not. BUT... HELPING OTHER PEOPLE REACH THEIR GOALS >> That's my main passion! I get to do that every day in my online fitness groups and with my coaches!!!
P.S. We are under $200K with our loans now! WHOHOOO!!!! GOAL: 18 months, baby, we are paying it all off!!!
