Building a Team from the Bottom UP

Building a Team is like building a FAMILY! And what most people don’t realize is the heartfelt relationships that are built UNDERNEATH. So I’ve built a STRONG business through the concept of helping others achieve what they WANT first!  Find out what people want and help them achieve it no matter what….when you lead with that it fills your heart to GO BIGGER! To do this not only for you and your family but for someone else’s. Most of the time your team will want what you have achieved OR what you are on the path TO achieve because you are your BRAND. You attract You!  Knowing that going in it helps ease the fear to just be yourself with your coaches. To share your BIG SCARY DREAMS and GOALS with them bc most likely they want the same things…they just haven’t spoke them aloud yet! But by doing so you are giving them PERMISSION to dream big, to set those big goals and more importantly to have FAITH its possible.  Leadership is being a visionary – speaking into the universe and into the hearts of your team – where you are going and WHY!!!!  Inspire people to create a bigger vision for themselves. The past is in the past. We all start from the same place…who is going to keep going to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN?? Those who follow the Leader!!!

The other part that most people don’t realize is to build a STRONG LEADER on your team, you have to help them build their organization from the bottom up. Meaning – one person is only so strong if they are build on a house of sticks…but a new leader built on a house of bricks is to going to build more leaders underneath them = GOAL.  How do I do that? I look at who are the new coaches on their team? Who is new and has a big heart and a big dream? Who is teachable and wants to make something with this? We look for 2-3 people on their team and simply work together in a small group and help all of them build their businesses at the SAME TIME. Sounds simple but most people just work with one coach – if you work with their entire team, find the hungry leaders under them, sort, define and collaborate – you will always find a GEM under them. And why work with one when you can multiply your efforts and success in 2-3.  It takes 3-5 to build a strong organization, so the leader never feels like they are building this on their own…reach in – find those people – work with them leading with your heart and watch a new organization UNDERNEATH YOURS unfold!!!!  Besides the fact you have created LOYALTY from not only your coach but a handful who NOW have a VISION and an ACTION PLAN to achieve it. The power of working with your people face to face, listening to their story and being the ONE to say I can help you do that —– is what being a Leader is all about!!

5 Years in Beachbody – What You Want to Know

This month I Celebrate 5 years as a Beachbody “Coach”!! When I look back to where I was when I joined and what I have Accomplished because of this company, it Blows My Mind!!! More so, because ANYONE can do what I have done…anyone that has the DRIVE and the DREAMS to want to Change their Life of course!! I’m going to share with you my Intrepretation on the Coaching Business and the Top 5 Questions I get asked all the time…maybe this is for you, maybe its not…but if you don’t make a move now in your life you might always ask yourself –

WHY NOT ME?

Before I get started, here are just some of the STATS I have achieved in the past 5 years

“I am NOW Earning a MONTH what I was making in a YEAR!!!”

Enrolled – June 1, 2008

  • Lost 20lbs from P90X, Turbo Fire & Shakeology! (I am lighter than I was in high school!!)
  • LOST 40lbs 7 Months POST BABY! Not to mention that I worked out through my ENTIRE PREGNANCY including teaching Turbo up to 35 weeks Prego!
  • Gained control of my health including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (battled with for 20 yrs!)
  • Learned how to get in the Best Shape of my Life the RIGHT WAY and keep it off!!
  • Went from Unemployment in Jan 2010 (from my full time job) to earning over $100K in Beachbody in 2011!!
  • Paid off over $30K in credit card debt
  • Paid my car off in full – we are DEBT FREE!!!
  • Never went “back to the corporate america J-O-B”, Beachbody is my full time income working part time hours
  • Built a Team of over 6000 Coaches
  • Hit ELITE COACH 2012 / Currently 9 Star Diamond in 1st Center, 3 Star Diamond in 2nd Center & 4 Star Diamond in husband’s account – basically I have built A LOT OF LEADERS duplicating my Success!!
  • Owner of MY TIME!! I am FREE to live my life how I choose, being a work from home mom and a role model for my daughter that you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to!

Honestly, this is just the beginning…I have even Bigger Goals to come and proud to say that absolutely nothing is out of reach!!

Before you read the next part – please know, I’m going to BE REAL with you on all of this!!! So I must start by saying this…this is an opportunity for you to Change Your Life!!!  No matter where you came from, the struggle you have gone through in your life, this is your chance to CHANGE IT…to become the person that inspires others, the person that pays it forward and will have a positive impact on others!! YOU can be the change in your family and DECIDE…you see I have only achieved Success because I was DONE!  When you understand that and know that this is “the vehicle” to Make It Happen, you will do whatever it takes to Learn, Study and Go To Work in your Coaching Business…everything else is just an excuse…make YOU a priority and it will Happen for YOU TOO!

TOP 5 QUESTIONS – WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW 

1. DO I NEED TO KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE?

Here’s a question I want you to ask yourself and take pen to paper…Who do you know that wants to Lose Weight? Have more Energy? Lower their cholesterol? Gain better Health?  Get in the Best Shape of their Life? Make more income? Work from home? Loves to help people naturally?  Are you starting to write a bunch of names down? Exactly! Look back at that list and think of who do they know that would also be interested in…..now what about your social media friends? So the question isn’t WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED or DO I NEED TO KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE?  Because, at some point in their life, most people will be interested in losing weight or making an extra income…the REAL QUESTION is – ARE THEY GOING TO JOIN YOU or SOMEONE ELSE?!! BOOM!! Honestly, that’s how it works!!

2. I HATE SALES, IS THIS SELLING?

Why do you hate “Sales”?  Is it because you had a bad experience with an annoying sales person before who was pushy?!  Well that’s NOT going to be you!  It’s definitely NOT me!  There’s a difference between “amateur sales” and “professional sales OR relationship sales” which is what I like to call it.  Let me explain this VERY SIMPLY – this is YOUR JOB as a Coach – Find out WHAT each person wants and then help them achieve it!!  What are their fitness goals?  How much weight do they want to lose?  Why?  What have they done in the past that hasn’t worked?  What are they doing now?  Gather information to learn HOW YOU CAN HELP THEM…next you are going to SHARE Your Experience w/ the programs and how they worked for you!! Build a relationship w/ others…NEXT you will make a “Recommendation” as to which workout / shakeology program would best suit their goals and fitness level to get the Best Results!

So going back to #1 above – people JOIN people that they LIKE and TRUST!!  You CAN’T Motivate people to WANT to lose weight…what you can do is look for those who are READY to take that step and be the person that says – Hey have you ever considered…??

3. HOW DO YOU EARN A FULL TIME INCOME AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME?

There are basically 2 ways to build an income w/ your Coaching Business:

1. Building Customers & 2. Building a Team

Customer Challenge Groups – This is the CORE of the business, helping people get results w/ the BB programs by providing motivation and accountability.  A Challenge Group includes: approx 5 customers on the fitness program of their choice, shakeology, clean eating plan and the support of a coach!  This is a great way to get people to START their programs and actually FINISH them!!  You earn a commission on all product sales 🙂  This will also help YOU stay accountable to your own goals as you will be doing the program w/ your customers.  You can earn a couple hundred dollars each month by simply running one challenge group!!!!   And at the same time helping a lot of people change their bodies, their health and their life!

Building a Team – This is how you will build “residual” or walk away income!!  Simply put – Every year my income doubles or triples!!! WHAT?!! What job is going to DOUBLE your SALARY every year? They’re not!  But you can by owning your “own biz”!  Think of it like this – you are a manager of a clothing store and you work off of personal commissions but also earn off of each employee in the store…now each team member decides to franchise their own store and builds a team underneath them, you earn off of ALL OF THEM!  I don’t want to get technical but just to give you an idea of how it works…hopefully this makes sense!  Over time your team will grow and that is why your income grows year after year….not everyone who signs up as a coach WANTS to build a large biz and that’s ok!!  But you will find your “Diamonds” who do, they become your Leaders, your Best Friends and together your are on mission to achieve BIG DREAMS by helping one person at a time get in the best shape of their life!

You can focus strictly on Challenge Groups and Customers or both…its up to you!

4. I’M CRAZY BUSY, HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT REALLY TAKE?

Aren’t we all! LOL!  When I started I was working full time downtown chicago 50-60 hours a week & teaching classes part time! But I knew if I committed my life would be in a completely different place a year from now…and it was!  Do you have ONE HOUR a day?  1 Hour of FOCUS TIME, if so I can show you how to build it in exactly that!  This biz is about connecting with people, building relationships and helping others.  You are going to find that it will start to naturally come up in conversation just going thru your everyday life.  But as far as TRAINING & SPECIFIC ACTION ITEMS you must do EVERYDAY to build it – 1 hour! BOOM!!!

10 REASONS WHY INSTRUCTORS BENEFIT FROM JOINING BEACHBODY

10 REASONS WHY GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTORS BENEFIT FROM JOINING BEACHBODY as a COACH

Before I start…please know that I have been a Group Fitness Instructor for 17 years, a Presenter for Powder Blue Productions for 7 years, a Beachbody Coach for 4 years and have held every role in the Fitness Industry at some point!!!  If you are a Group Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer or are thinking about becoming one…READ THIS:

1. Instructors LOVE FITNESS: Fitness Professionals do what they do because it’s their PASSION!!!! WE LOVE it and most of us are not in it for the money, but simply because it makes us feel GREAT!!

Coaching is a natural extension of what you already do – just like teaching classes with Beachbody you are running small “Challenge Groups” but all ONLINE!

2. Instructors WORK FOR FREE: Ahhh did I just say that?!!! YES I did!! Let’s be honest….by the time you buy the shoes, the clothes, the music, choreography, instructor trainings, ceu’s (I could keep going) its a wash…right?  Now you might be the exception to this rule but for most of us, this is the case.  BUT..you know what…WHO CARES!!!! WE LOVE TEACHING and most of us would DO IT FOR FREE!!!!  But just because you would doesn’t mean you HAVE TO!!

Coaching allows you to still teach classes but build an additional income in fitness doing exactly what you love!! Better yet, this business is built ONLINE which means physically you are giving your body a break 🙂 And again let’s be honest…when you are over teaching too many classes you start to go through burn out…teach just the classes you love and give them 100%!!!

3. Instructors already HAVE A NETWORK: As an Instructor, you are a Motivator! A Leader! You are on “a stage” every single class inspiring people to get healthy & fit!  Your “posse” already wants to know what you eat, what you do for your workouts and if you have tips for them to lose the final weight.  Does this sound familiar?

Coaching is your OWN Fitness Business…and with any business you have to start with CUSTOMERS.  In this instance, customers who are interested in losing weight, improving their health/fitness, energy, digestion etc. YOU are surrounded by people who already LOOK TO YOU as a ROLE MODEL for fitness and TRUST your OPINION>  Sounds like a great starting foundation to me!

4. Get in the BEST SHAPE of YOUR Life: Let’s be frank again…as Instructors we tend to put all our focus on our students.  Again maybe this isn’t you….but most of us tend to put our workouts on the back burner because we are teaching so many classes, have injuries or simply burn out.  We are so focused on helping our students that we start to forget about ourselves….even if it is the last 5-10 lbs

Beachbody will get you in the BEST SHAPE of your Life at any age!!! #1 Shakeology will change your life (I’ve personally lost 20lbs after struggling 4ever)  You are OVERTRAINING and your body is DEPLETED…simply put, Shakeology will fuel your body properly and you will naturally eat less, gain energy, drop the detoxed junk out of your system and CURB your cravings of CARBS/SUGARS (bcz you are depleted!!!)  #2 This will be your Business and you will want to be a walking billboard of a Success Story!!! Coaching will FORCE you to put YOU FIRST and gain your BEST YOU BACK with the BEST Workouts and Supplements in Fitness (at discount not to mention)

5. Let’s HELP MORE PEOPLE: We are driven by helping people!!  Right now you are making a positive impact on the people that you are coming in direct contact with…in your classes / bootcamps / training sessions…that is a SMALL NUMBER of people!  How can you help MORE people?

Coaching allows you to help ANYONE ANYWHERE!! Because this is an online business, you can run Challenge Groups with your Facebook Friends that live in another state (for example).  People that are inspired by you, want to take class with you but simply don’t live near you 🙂

6. Help People FIND THE MISSING LINK: I’m a firm believer that to truly SEE RESULTS you must include all aspects of Fitness: Working Out (Cardio & Strenth), Eating Clean (Supplements as well) and Accountability!!  Think about why MOST PEOPLE are working out and still NOT losing weight….WHY the people you see in class every week still look the same but want to change….

Coaching will allow you to simply help people find the MISSING LINK for them to TRULY SEE RESULTS!!!  Are they working out but not eating right?  Are they doing cardio but no resistance training?  Is their diet so terrible they are tired, sluggish and don’t even know where to start?  You may be giving TIPS right now, but imagine having REAL TOOLS to truly be able to help them…tools they can gain through you!

7. Instructors can get CERTIFIED TO TEACH P90X & Coming Soon – Insanity & Brazil Butt Lift!!!  YES you heard that right, Beachbody is expanding their Group Fitness Formats!  This means these formats will be open for certification to teach in the gym setting!!  With P90X and Insanity literally airing 3 x a day, you have BRAND RECOGNITION!!  OPPORTUNITY to REACH MORE PEOPLE

If you are going to get certified to teach these formats, why wouldn’t you be a Coach???

8.  Instructors DESERVE TO SAVE $$:  As a Coach you will get a 25% discount on all products – Workouts, Shakeology & Nutritional Supplements (you are probably paying full price for some of this now at your nutritional store)

9.  Instructors dream of OPENING their OWN BUSINESS: Disclaimer – again maybe this isn’t you…but after working with thousands of Fitness Professionals over the years, most of them will say their #1 Goal is to open a Studio/Gym!!

HELLO I KNOW Because this was ME!!!!  but not anymore…

Coaching allows you to have your own business WITHOUT the RISK of starting your own from the ground up…no loan from the bank…no leaving your full time job…no debt going into opening this and definitely not the normal 2 years to pay yourself back!  Its a Business “in a box”, think of it as a “franchise” (even though its NOT)  You receive everything you need to KNOW and LEARN to be successful without the GUESSWORK…including the BRAND NAMES of P90X, Insanity, Turbo Fire & More!

10. Instructors can make a FULL TIME INCOME doing what they LOVE:  Most instructors work full time and teach classes on the side for fun.  Not really looking it as a “job”.  But WHAT IF you could do WHAT YOU LOVE and build a full time income??

Beachbody is a $600 MILLION COMPANY!!! The Coaching Business is a lucrative opportunity for those that are looking to go BIG…

I earned $5000 this week from Beachbody?!!….but that’s NOT the Best Part!!

OK Yes I almost fell over when I seen my paycheck this week, over $5000 for 1 week in Beachbody….but more importantly, I need you to know that is NOT the best part!!!  You know me…did you forget that I’m the Everyday Girl who grew up in a small town, had a single mom, believes in “Happily Ever After” & Fairytales, teaches Fitness Classes (BTW Instructors TEACH bcz they LOVE it, not because they are getting paid) met my husband on the school bus and was on UNEMPLOYMENT in Jan 2010!!!  I’m as down to earth as they get!!  I’m overly Optimistic and “Live in a Bubble” of Positive People…I don’t watch the news much, I steer away from drama or anything/anyone negative and Simply Love to Help People!!!  I share this with you because I KNOW that people REALLY DON’T KNOW what I “do”….or how I’ve MADE this happen…

I lost my job of 13 years in Nov 2009 and went on Unemployment, which was Heart Wrenching Disappointing for a work-aholic like myself!!  I earned more in January of 2012 from my Beachbody Coaching Business than we earned in 6 months in my final year working downtown Chicago!!!  I’ve LOST 17lbs and YES feel Amazing!!!  But wait….HOW is this all possible??  I want you to know WHO I WAS before I started – in fact the picture on the left is from 2006 and yes I’m blonde!!!  You may see me now and think that this was EASY or that I’m “Special” but I’m NOT!!!!  In 2006 I didn’t have an email account, I didn’t own a computer, I didn’t know what social media was, I was over bloated/over weight, I would NEVER EVER speak in public and although I was Happily Married….I wasn’t FULL-FILLED INSIDE!!!!!!  I created the life I have right now….I want people to know that!! I LEARNED EVERYTHING I had to – to be Successful and turn our life around!!  We were SWALLOWED in CREDIT CARD DEBT…so people can say “Money isn’t Important” but its also the #1 REASON FOR DIVORCE!!  It’s not about finances—-Its about FREEDOM!!!!!  Freedom to Live a Life we could only DREAM OF – on OUR own TERMS, our own TIME…..

and the BEST PART IS…..I’ve built this Business helping others including some of my BEST FRIENDS Change their Lives!!!  So the $$$$ REALLY REPRESENTS – Weight Loss, More Energy, Getting out of Debt, Retiring at 34 years of age, Moms staying home w/ their family, More Time and FREEDOM to do WHAT YOU WANT!! YOU Get to Decide…You are in Control!!! Or at least you can be….with eveyone losing their jobs right and left, the economy in the place that it is, people losing their homes, the over growing OBESITY EPIDEMIC, people TIRED of being sick and TIRED….I say, you don’t have to!!!!!  I said, ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!!  When I was a little girl….I honestly thought some MAGIC business/job/opportunity was going to just come to me so I would know what to do w/ my life….because I’ve always wanted to do something GREAT….but guess what, I learned that it doesn’t come to you….YOU have to FIND IT!!!  Then you have to go after it like you have ONE LIFE TO LIVE!!!  Don’t look at today….FOCUS on tomorrow, a year from now, 2 years from now….thats what I did!

My HEART is FULL because of all the lives I’m touching inside and out!!  I’m running a business that I started making $50/week here and there….Now a Huge Organization that is going to Blow My Mind in the next 2 years….but I’m LEADING with my HEART!!  Its a RELATIONSHIP Business – if you INVEST in your people & team, truly LISTEN and help them make their DREAMS COME TRUE…you will be continuely Blessed!!!!

Don’t wait another day, if you want more then I can help you Achieve It!!!  You CAN BE in Control of your Life – but you have to TAKE IT BABY!!!!!  MESSAGE ME on how I can help you!!

I can’t believe this was 2 years ago –
