A little over 2 years ago I was pretty miserable with my life. I had the teaching job of my dreams, or so I thought. I was teaching 1st grade, which I thought was the job I always wanted, but that was far from the truth. I was depressed and did not know how to get out of this rut! I kept working out, but I was not eating all that healthy and I think all the stress was counteracting my weight loss. No matter what I did, I could not lose more than a few pounds. One day, I saw a girl who was a mutual friend post about a Challenge group opportunity. I asked her for more information and I learned that Shakeology could be the answer to my prayers. I thought $140 a month was a little too expensive for my budget and did not know if it was a good choice to add more expenses. Krista Anderson, my mutual friend, told me about the advantages of being a Beachbody coach such as 25% off all products and the fact that I could also make 25% commission on anything I sell. That made Shakeology only cost me about $115 a month. I talked to my husband about it, and he said he was alright with me giving it a try.
At first, I was kinda motivated and tried to share the business with my friends and family. Then I let my horrible job get in the way. I did not change my diet like I should, did not drink the Shakeology daily, and again barely saw any results. I lost my job that year and was pretty confused with where my life was going to go. I thought about quitting teaching forever. I knew there was something special about coaching, but I just was not focusing on it in the mist of everything else going on in my life. For some reason though, I never thought of quitting coaching. I just knew it would one day pan out.
I ended up getting a new teaching job in a 3rd grade classroom. This job reaffirmed my belief that teaching was the job for me. I was pretty busy with getting used to another new teaching job. I started to have some more success with working out and losing a little weight, but not liked I hoped. I was doing T25 and loved the program, but only only 5 pounds total. I tried to motivate other people to do challenges, but since I myself did not get the results I wanted, I had a hard time convincing people to join me.
Then in April of 2014, I found the program that changed my life, the 21 day fix. I learned that I was not eating healthy portions. In 21 days I lost 9 pounds. A few months later, I FINALLY achieved my goal of weighing 125 lbs. This program not only changed how I felt about myself, but it finally helped me to feel so great about myself that I wanted to PAY IT FORWARD to everyone else. I knew if this program could work for me, it could work for anyone. I think my energy was contagious!! In a few short months I grew my team to 9 coaches, started making a couple hundred a month, and loved how coaching was finally allowing me to help change lives!
Today I am growing my company every day. I have become certified as a Turbokick instructor and can’t wait to teach my first fitness class. I love that I am mentoring other coaches and helping them to start their business the right way. I help TONS of people with their fitness and health journey for FREE, and love it and help many people through monthly challenge groups. I wake up each day and look forward to my day. I have met so many amazing people through Beachbody events, Facebook groups, and just through connecting with people. I have some amazing goals for 2015, and know if I work hard and continue to believe in myself, I will achieve them!
Anyways, I love what I do and would love to share the wealth! Check out this link to learn more! Work from home
