What can I say? I still feel like I’m in a dream world because of how much my life has changed over the course of the last 3 years or so. I still remember being that young, 23 year old college graduate, starting off my life in the real world as a Financial Advisor, a career choice that I felt that I would enjoy and be passionate about. The excitement quickly fizzled when I discovered the amount of hours, stress, cold calling, and just straight selling that was involved, and when you combine all that with terrible eating habits, it’s a recipe for disaster all around, everything from my relationships, health, and career. I got involved with P90X and it literally changed my life. The person I turned into after 90 days of going through the program was nothing like the person I used to be. Shortly thereafter I decided to become a Beachbody Coach, not because I was looking to start up another business venture, but because I wanted to fill a void in my life. In case you didn’t know, I was involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters for many years, and whenever I stopped being a “Big” because of time reasons, I knew I needed to find something else where I could have an impact on others’ lives, and becoming a Beachbody Coach seemed like the answer, and I was right. That was when an even greater change in my life was about to happen.
I fell in love with the Beachbody business and helping others with fitness so much that my life began to be consumed by it! I woke up in the morning excited to see if I got another email from someone else that wanted my help or who was thanking me for helping them change their life, and when you experience that feeling over and over again, it becomes sort of like a drug, and you just don’t want to stop! I loved making a difference in people’s lives, and began noticing my business explode. What was interesting was that I really didn’t understand what was happening because I wasn’t focused on the business at all. I was so busy with my other career that I just couldn’t, but when I noticed that I was beginning to get paid pretty well for my recommendations, help, and support, I knew I needed to find out what I needed to do in order to make this my full-time job. A year and a half after starting as a Beachbody Coach, that dream to become a full-time coach came true, and I was able to focus all of my efforts on the Beachbody business!
2010 was a life-changing year for me. My passion for helping others combined with my work ethic, desire to succeed, and leadership skills allowed me to emerge as one of the Top Beachbody Coaches very early in the year. When June rolled around, I made it a goal to become Top Beachbody Coach 2010, and nothing was going to stop me from achieving that goal! In January of this year I found out I ended up winning Top Beachbody Coach. What’s important to understand, though, is that winning Top Beachbody Coach is everything but an individual effort. I won because throughout my entire Beachbody Career my main goal was to help people change their lives with Beachbody products that I have personally used and have worked for me, so I knew they would work for them. I wouldn’t have won if the people I coach didn’t trust my recommendations, so a big “thank you” goes to those of you who did trust that what I was recommending would indeed help you change your life! The same goes for the coaches on my team. If they didn’t trust me when I told them that the Beachbody Business was a legitimate opportunity and they could create complete freedom for their families, the Top Coach Award would have gone to someone else. Last, but certainly not least, Melinda, my parents, and grandparents have all played a MAJOR role in my success in becoming the Top Beachbody Coach! Without their love, support, ability to lead by example, I would probably still be in a career that I didn’t enjoy.
