Congrats on deciding to live life by design and not by default!
I did the cubicle job thing for years and wasn’t a fan. Day after day of the same thing without feeling like I was making a noticeable contribution to the world, as well as knowing the only way I could get a raise was through the good graces of my boss once a year during review. Well, one day that job ended and suddenly I found myself facing the world with no safety net, and I never felt more alive!
I had been what we call a “discount coach” for two years. That is to say, my cousin had gotten me started with Beachbody as a coach simply so I could get the 25% discount on products like P90X and Shakeology, but I had no intention of working the business side or really “coaching” anyone.
However, when my job ended I saw two things – I saw that after my father had passed away from poor health I knew I wanted to help others learn that there are healthier ways to live even though I’m not expert, and I saw that this was a great avenue to do that and to make a nice side income that could eventually become a full time income. How? Well I’ll show you.
Once I started simply sharing what I was already doing as a product of the product, that is using the fitness programs and drinking Shakeology every day along with watching my nutrition, people quickly wanted to know what I was doing to get more energy, feel healthier, look better, etc…I just shared, regardless of how far along my journey I was. I shared by wearing gear like P90X shirts and jackets when out, by chatting with my friends and family, and by simply allowing my social media posts to reflect my day to day life, that now included my fitness journey. None of it took any more of my time, I simply had to shift my awareness and allow myself to be more open about my journey and the business grew pretty quickly.
Over the past 3 years since treating the business as a business I have been able to supplement my income to the point where this year I should be able to say I’m a full time coach and fire my boss (although I am already my own boss with my freelance web and photography businesses haha). The great thing is, with the experience that I have and the awesome coaching team I am a leader on, we have developed tools and training that makes this journey much smoother and potentially much faster than when I started. Many of my coaches are covering their Shakeology expenses in their first month of coaching. My coaches and I have also gone on some truly awesome trips paid for by Beachbody, like a Bahamas cruise, a trip to the Atlantis resort, Disneyworld, and next year is a private cruise just for Beachbody coaches!
A couple other aspects worth noting – Personal development. Growth in all areas should never stop when school ends, and the most important part of coaching is definitely persona development. I’ve had coaches who, through the personal development books and audio we’ve recommended to them, have actually gotten raises in their 9-5 jobs because their leadership skills and “leadership personality” developed to such a point their bosses took notice. Plus, as a coach you’re now a business owner so tax season isn’t such a bad thing. The income tax system was developed for entrepreneurs years ago, which you will see is a good thing!
So if having a part time job that grows as you grow, lets you do everything from home without adding to your current work schedule, lets YOU decide how much you make based on your effort, sends you on amazing trips every year to reward your efforts, and eventually allows you to fire your boss…if that sounds good to you, here’s how to get started:
If you’re brand new then you’ll want to get started the right way, as a product of the product, and sign up as a new coach using a challenge pack.
Simply click the link below and select the Coach button and walk through the steps, select the challenge pack that’s best for you, the Shakeology HD flavor you’d like and you’re all set! Then simply contact me on Facebook or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you to the team!
If you already own a fitness program, you will proceed the same way, and you can either get a challenge pack to try a new program or you can bypass that and simply get Shakeology HD and get started that way!
If you own a fitness program and are already on Shakeology HD, you click the link, bypass both options and simply pay the coach upgrade fee to get started and then contact me.
With ALL of these options, make sure you have a fitness program and that you are currently on Shakeology HD so that you are a true product of the product and are a qualified active coach! Welcome to the team! Excited to help you live your life by design and not by default!
