Beachbody Coaching for Six Figure Earners

For me, the coaching opportunity is all about FREEDOM. I started my Beachbody journey when my son was 8 months old. I had not felt comfortable in my own skin for awhile, but was pretty much in denial, not wanting to actually DO something about it. I was eating JUNK every day.  My lunch consisted of hot dogs, doritos, dr. pepper, chef boy r d- yeah, I know, GROSS. I knew better, but it didn’t matter. I had no REASON to do better.  

Around this time, my son was starting to eat solid foods AND my husband got diagnosed with high cholesterol. So my reason for starting was two fold- set a positive example for my son- I knew if I wanted him to eat healthy, it had to start with me. AND, we had a short time frame to get my husband’s health back on track and keep him off medication. 

Enter shakeology and 10 minute trainer with my first challenge group. That’s what kept me pushing. I wasn’t perfect, but I pushed play every day because I knew I had to check in and stay accountable.

Just FOUR months after starting, Cass' cholesterol was back to normal, he had lost 35 pounds and I was below what I thought my goal weight was and we both felt better than ever. Less than a year after committing to working out at home daily, drinking shakeology, and constantly improving our eating habits, we both were in the best shape of our lives.

The coaching opportunity was presented to me as a discount on shakeology. I said no for TWO months before I finally signed up for the discount, realizing I had no plans to quit drinking it and I had already gotten my parents addicted to it too ;) Yep- I was THAT person- I said NO a lot and then just signed up for a discount.

After a few months, I saw my coach was running a goal setting group so I figured why not? I started that group AND joined a team cup team for the same reason- WHY NOT? That month I hit a HUGE goal, helping over 10 people start their health and fitness journeys and never looked back.

At the time, I was earning 6 figures as a dentist at a non-profit organization. You would think that would be a dream. I wasn’t even working crazy hours- just 4 days a week. I never even thought about staying home or the possibility of coaching replacing my income and actually becoming my full time job- Heck, just 6 months earlier I cared NOTHING about my health and fitness! 

I started setting goals for myself, and little by little started seeing the possibilities.
First, it was paying for our nanny.
Then, it became covering my student loans.
Then, it was to cover half of my salary so I back down to part time at my husband’s office.

That’s when I realized just how stressed I was asking for time off and constantly being nagged by the director where I worked. I dreaded going to work every day. I had a limited amount of time off and always worried if I had to stay home for some reason. Less than a year in to coaching, we found out I was pregnant and had to make a decision on what to do about my stressful work environment. Beachbody allowed me the opportunity and security to walk away. No- my full time, six figure income was not covered, but I was making enough that I was able to make the decision without much stress. Without Beachbody, I would probably still be stuck at that dead end job. Yes, I made good money, but I was miserable and the possibility of quitting when you’re making that kind of money is DAUNTING. To go in with my husband meant that we would have gone from two incomes to ONE and I would have been building a business from scratch.

Because of Beachbody, I have now been home for almost a year and a half, through my 2nd pregnancy and now with my two babies- 3 1/2 year old Benton and 10 month old baby June. It was a dream I didn’t even realize I had until it became my reality.

If YOU are making six figures a year and wonder WHY you should even LOOK at this opportunity, I get it! I've been there.

I encourage you to open your mind and really look at the possibilities! Do you have ALL of your bases covered? Can you honestly say you have ALL of the areas below taken care of?

- Freedom- To always be there for your kids and family? To travel as you want? 
- Plan B- what if something happened to you or your spouse?
- Time
- Future/retirement- nest egg
- Children college fund

If there is ANY part of you that feels a tug that maybe THIS could be the opportunity you've been looking for, I encourage you to GO FOR IT! 

Are you truly FREE???
 My husband owns his own dental practice and has for about 5 years now. He makes the rules. He sets the hours. He controls his schedule. Sounds great right? But… He can ONLY work in the confines of his offices. Dentists can’t exactly work from home or while traveling. He can’t wake up one day and decide just to go on vacation. He has employees and patients counting on him to show up every day. If he isn’t there, he doesn’t earn money. The overhead in dentistry is outrageous and every vacation and time away have to be strategically planned. That is NOT freedom.

From the outside it looks perfect, and as far as office bound careers go, it’s about as good as it gets. But- it is STRESSFUL and it is far from FREE. I am creating a life that will allow him to continue to do what he loves, but also have the freedom to travel as we want and not stress about every day he’s away.

Travel time Anytime= Freedom!

Are you thinking there is NO way you can find time to build a business when you already work full time? When I was full time as a dentist, I took every opportunity to build my coaching business- building relationship on social media in between patients, listening to personal development during my drive time, using what had been hours of TV time at night to learn everything I could about the opportunity to gain confidence.

A huge benefit of joining Team Fusion is the time management systems you'll receive--- how to use every minute, how to stop wasting time on social media or watching TV, and how this business can be done in just 10 hours a week. I don't want you to throw away your family and personal life, but to learn how to better manage your time to achieve your goals and dreams while still finding life balance.

Do you feel STUCK?
As a full time dentist, I was just going through the motions every day, knowing I couldn't just leave or find another job while continuing to live the lifestyle we were accustomed to. It was a tough spot to be in.
I was floating through life, was never giving any thought to personal development and was SETTLING for my life as it was. I made good money and had a perfect little family- everything I ever could have dreamed of, right?!?
I honestly thought people who read “self help” books were WEIRD or just had something really weighing heavily on them that they needed HELP with.

When I discovered Beachbody, I realized just how LOST I had been and how much had been MISSING from my life.
When you are COMFORTABLE, you get complacent, forget about your big goals and dreams, and SETTLE for much LESS than you are capable of. A big paying job does not mean fulfillment and a life well lived. Think of your DREAMS and what your IDEAL life looks like!

Don't just take my word for it! We have so many coaches making their dreams come true and sharing how they WENT FOR IT and found happiness and fulfillment outside of their traditional six figure jobs with Beachbody...
