When I first became a coach, I was mostly interested in the discount on Shakeology. And, because I’m a workout fanatic and I love working out at home (I also love the gym but given the closest one is 20 miles a way and I have a husband who works long and sporadic hours and a 5-year-old, so it’s just not feasible), the thought of being able to add new programs to my library at a discount was also exciting! And, while I had looked into what coaching really was for almost a year before I signed up, I still wasn’t sure I was the picture of a coach. I LOVED the idea of being a successful coach. But, I wasn’t sure it was something “I” could do! After all, I wasn’t a transformation story yet! I didn’t already have a beach body! I wasn’t a sales person, a nutrition or fitness expert and I didn’t have any related degrees or certifications.
What I found was that I could inspire people along the way! My struggles and my successes have been real and raw, and I’ve found that really people just want to be supported and encouraged. They don’t want an expert. I also found I didn’t need to be good at sales to succeed as a coach! I just share my story, what has worked for me, and since our products are so amazing and REALLY DO WORK, they pretty much sell themselves. I truly am in the business of helping people….not in the business of selling to people.
So, for about a month after signing, I didn’t do anything. I enjoyed Shakeology. I enjoyed TurboFire. I spent time on our team pages on Facebook getting to know other coaches. I started following other coaches in business. But, I wasn’t actually sharing any of my story. I wasn’t talking to people about what I was doing. And, I wasn’t sure I would ever have the guts to do it!
Then, we had a Black Friday sale and I decided to post a little ad up on my Facebook wall. One of my friends messaged me that she wanted a stability ball and a medicine ball that were on sale. She was excited about the awesome deal and I was excited to have some interest in what I was doing!
That’s all it took for me to go “all in!” I promoted my first challenge/accountability group in December and got 5 lovely women to join me!
And, the next month, another 3. And, the next month, like 13 PEOPLE joined me in groups or with 1-0n-1 coaching with the launch of the 21 Day Fix!
Part of me couldn’t believe it! And, I haven’t looked back ever since!
I’m still not the transformation that I know I will be!
But, you know what? I’ve learned SO SO SO much more about myself than trying to lose weight. I’ve become more confident, more driven, more happy! I’m surrounding myself with like-minded people who are also confident, driven and happy! They have become like family.
And, the people that have joined me along the way joined me not because I was a fitness model but because I truly care!
I am inspiring others and I love to hear “because of you I didn’t give up.”
That’s also how I feel about my own team of coaches now! People who I want to help succeed with not only their health & fitness goals but with their goals of financial freedom!
I am building a team of people who can do anything they set their minds out to do!
Will you join me today? As a coach on my team, you will get 1-on-1 mentoring and you will have access to a whole team of other coaches who’s main goal is to help YOU succeed!
