So, in last week’s post, I raised a few social concerns we are experiencing in the good ole US of A and talked a little about the obesity epidemic. This week, let’s focus on the economic issues a lot of Americans are facing. Does the following sound familiar for yourself or someone close to you? Working like crazy just to survive paycheck to paycheck. No time for family or fun – just barely getting by and possibly (more likely, probably) up to their eyeballs in debt. If not in debt, perhaps just one major incident or illness away from serious financial trouble – because there are no savings to fall back on. Some people, maybe you, have stopped dreaming about taking a real vacation let alone becoming financially independent. Maybe you’ve stopped dreaming all together.
And likely you look at the Coaching Opportunity as some silly little thing that can’t possibly help you out of your hole. I will be the first to admit that I NEVER thought this business was something people did to make significant amounts of money. I was an education SNOB. I have an MBA and am a CPA, my husband is a PhD Chemist…people like us don’t do “at-home” businesses! SNOB.
And then I signed up to be a “discount” coach because I love Shakeology and that 25% discount alone made financial sense to sign up. But then I started paying close attention to other coach’s business success stories, and it was eye opening. There are several business leaders who RETIRED before age 40 because of Beachbody, and continue to coach full-time. A most impressive example to me personally, is an Elite Coach who is also a mother and lawyer. She makes over six-figures annually with her Beachbody business. Yet another example: a small town girl (like my hometown size small!) built a hugely successful business through social media. There are many more examples but I’ll stop there!
So, where am I going with all this?
Last Summer I went to Coach Summit where people were recognized for paying off their credit card debt and MORTGAGES with the help of their Beachbody income. By recognized, I mean that they were brought forward as shining examples of the overall Beachbody Philosophy. And there were top-tier millionaire coaches too. Seriously. So, here’s the epiphany. Maybe I could build a team and help people achieve wealth too. How AWESOME would that be?! An opportunity to do something I love – helping others get healthy – ON MY OWN SCHEDULE and make money for others and myself. Enter my partner and brother – Coach Jeff, who was like “Why not? Why not us? Why can’t we do this? It’s all up to us!” And Team Ditch the Belly was born. WOOT!
IT’S TIME TO START DREAMING AGAIN.
Now, we are nowhere near Elite coach status, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves! But we have BIG DREAMS for our organization! Maybe it’s time for YOU to start dreaming again. Maybe we can help. Think about what you would do with an extra $100, $500, $1,000 or even $10,000 a month. Of course nobody can guarantee you will be successful in this but just take a minute and think about your dreams. How long will it take to achieve them in your CURRENT job and situation? How long in your CURRENT situation will it take to get out of debt? To be financially independent? Is it even possible? I’m not saying this opportunity is a way to get rich overnight. Like every other business it takes hard work, dedication and commitment. But even if it takes you 10 years to get there, perhaps you would still be better off than the status quo.
OPEN YOUR MIND!
So I want to close by asking you to start thinking about what IS possible instead of thinking about all the things that could go wrong. Maybe it’s time to open up your mind to the potential of an opportunity such as Beachbody. Team Ditch the Belly is on a mission to make a difference in our world not only by impacting the trend of obesity but also by helping people who join us in that mission live a fulfilling life financially as well. And have an amazing time with an amazing group of people while doing it. If you want to learn more, reach out and let’s chat!
