How The Secret Changed My Life

I’ve always been the girl who believes in Disney Princesses and happily ever afters….I mean why not? But most of my life I was told I was naive, lived in a bubble or with my head in the clouds. It wasn’t until I read “The Secret” in 2011 that I realized how IMPORTANT it is to DREAM!  Dreams are simply GOALS on paper. Take that one in for a moment. We all get caught up in life and at some point, really stop dreaming – at least BIG DREAMS! But I can tell you my entire life I’ve had a burning desire to do something GREAT with my life…I just didn’t know what! The Secret instills that your Thoughts become your Life…AKA as the Law of Attraction.  What you think about most of the time, you have the power to draw that into your life! Sounds crazy I know, but it is for real! So it gave me permission to DREAM BIG again. To write down my goals, believe in them and commit to them. To do whatever it took to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!! And it definitely did just that…through positive thinking, visualization, being crystal clear on what I wanted in life and speaking it daily = i brought it into my life!!!  It isn’t a coincidence that that same year I earned over a 6 figure income in my Coaching Business…something that seemed almost impossible when I started! Even MORE though it taught me the POWER of BELIEF in myself. That I can achieve anything I set my mind to and whatever I want my “story” to look like 5 years from now…I have it ALL within me to write it as how I choose to live it 🙂

So if you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it! The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

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!!)

  • 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

  • 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!!!

My Top 3 Takeaways from Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day PUSH!

If you have been thinking about diving into the 30 day PUSH book / online challenge with Fitness, Business & Life Expert, Chalene Johnson…I’m going to share with you how AMAZING & HIGHLY EFFECTIVE this program has been for me!!

I’ve worked for Chalene Johnson’s Company, Powder Blue Productions, for 6 years now.  At a time in my life where I was HUNGRY to do more in Fitness and Inspire others, she over fulilled all of my hopes & expectations!  I knew from the moment I met Chalene, that this woman has got IT ALL TOGETHER!!!!  She’s truly HAPPY, Comfortable Public Speaking, Confident in her own skin, Happily Married, A Successful Business Owner and created an Empire DOING WHAT SHE LOVES for a living!!!!  Motivating, Smart, Savvy, Balanced, Trendy…SERIOUSLY?? How does she do it all?  I think those are the words that float through my mind EVERY TIME I hear her speak – every live training, youtube video, 30 day free challenge, Camp Do More, Turbo Kick Classes and more…..NOW I KNOW!!!!  AND all of her “Secrets”, Tips and HABITS are revealed in PUSH!!!

“30 Days to Turbocharged Habits, a Bangin Body & the Life you Deserve!!” And it DELIVERS!!  First I want to say that I have been following her trainings for years and even though I had picked up bits and pieces here and there, I knew once I put it all TOGETHER it would be POWERFUL!!  Everyone will TAKE AWAY different things because we are all LOOKING for different things….here were my BIG A HA MOMENTS…

 

1. DISCIPLINE – Sticking with the 30 day program forced me into NEW HABITS…Discipline!!  We all have the POWER to Achieve Every GOAL we set for ourselves…but most of us lack the DISCIPLINE to do the Daily Baby Steps to get there.  Learning to look at a BIGGER GOAL and FORCING myself to learn a new habit, therefore DISCIPLINING myself was the missing link.  Successful People are Disciplined to Do What Most Others won’t….

2. ORGANIZATION: Ahhh I run the other way when I hear this word!!  Details?? Me?? Oh No!!   I see the Big Picture but the details make me want to jump on to the next task on my list.  I’ve always made a To Do List but it was on several pieces of paper…post it notes, notebooks and notebooks and notebooks, cell phone apps YOU NAME IT!!!  Why couldn’t I find ONE that worked?  After learning her simple system of breaking down the tasks on your To Do List to TODAY, THIS WEEK & SOMEDAY – I found an app that I fell in LOVE with GET IT DONE APP 

It follows the same folders, syncs to my phone and I am able to do my To Do List on my computer…which is WHAT Works For ME!!!  It’s not just creating a To Do List, most people do that….its Creating a To Do List with the TASKS that are going to move you towards your Push Goal!!

3. PUSH GOAL / THINKING BIG – One of her signature ideas in the book is teaching you how to set Goals but specifically a PUSH Goal.  Basically a Yearly BIG Goal then when accomplished will allow all of your other goals to fall into place as ACCOMPLISHED!!  She has you write out 10 Goals for the year and IDENTIFY which one will be your Push Goal.  NOW….I have done the 10 Goals before, specifically in 2006 when I first became a Presenter for PBP.  It worked for me then when I had no idea what I was doing, haha!! This time around I added the PUSH GOAL – which was still EASY….but now came the HARD PART…..Reverse Engineering your Push Goal!!!!  Again, I ve heard her talk about this before, show it on videos and I always RAN to the next task….thinking oh no way!! NO WAY can I do that…really I was telling myself that I wasn’t willing to DISCIPLINE myself to do that!!  What is Reverse Engineering – in simple terms….breaking down your Push Goal to EVERY SINGLE TINY STEP you must take to achieve it!! And your goal is to come up with a huge, LONG list of mini tasks…the more the better!! Ahhhhh  Well Guess What….I did it!! I MADE MYSELF DO IT!!  I went into the dining room, posted the GIANT Poster Size Post It notes on the wall and started writing for probably a good 30 minutes NON STOP!!!  Once I was done I thought I was going to feel overwhelmed and think…HOW in the world am I ever going to do all of this????  But just the opposite happened…..I felt RELIEF!!  I felt a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders because I just spilled every idea, thought, to do list task on paper…every single one of them.  I HAD A PLAN…ON PAPER!!!  A Plan to Achieve the Biggest Goal of my Personal Career, one that will Change my Family’s Life!!!

Chalene teaches you the HABITS to Success whether Fitness, Nutrition, Relationships or Business!!  It is a Life Changing Book!  She is REAL, down to earth and you will feel like you are talking to your Best Friend when she takes you through the journey.  Can you Discipline yourself to PUSH for 30 days?? I’m glad I did!! It wasn’t easy, but it was 100% worth it!! Now I’m PUSHING you to do the same!!

Chalene Johnson PUSH

I’m just an everyday girl with a heart hungry to do something Great with my Life…I can’t ever Thank Chalene enough…but what I can do is PAY IT FORWARD!!  Learn it – Live it – Teach it!!!

Good Luck!! And I can’t wait to hear your Success with PUSH!

Cruisin the Caribbean

If you asked me a year ago if I ever thought I would be on a Caribbean Cruise in 2011, I would have said NO WAY…but WOW has life changed!

I want YOU to know that ANYTHING is possible when you set your Mind to it!!  Hardwork, Determination and FOCUS were definitely my Power Words for 2010….I was laid off from my full time job of over 13 yrs at the end of 2009 and instead of falling into a deep depression, I DECIDED this was my Opportunity to work my Business w/ full FOCUS!!  You would be surprised how far Goal Setting and Self Help Books will go….A Long Way!!  I had a Plan B and I’m so thankful I did…because this is where it led me

I earned a trip for 2 on a 7 Day Caribbean Cruise on the Oasis of the Seas!!  Oh yea baby! My hubby couldn’t go because of MMA Training season so I took one of my best friends, Shukria Stewart (APD from Utah).  Over 300 Beachbody Coaches were on the boat including 2 of my Coaches: Lisa Koehler and Kristia Hord!  I was MORE EXCITED for them to have Earned this trip than I honestly was for myself!!  On top of that we met up w/ my Success Partners: Blasi Jacobi, Kristi Fukumoto and my Upline ROCKSTAR Coach – Christine Dwyer & Platinum Presenters Team!!! Not to mention Corporate and staff made the trip as well…..

If you’re thinking, ohhhh it was a Business trip….think AGAIN!! In this Business we don’t know the difference between Work and Play!! And that’s the BEST way to describe my life!! I’m working w/ Positive, Driven People who Love Life and together we are having a BLAST!!!

What did we do? The 3 ports were: Bahamas, St. Thomas & St. Maarten!  It was NON STOP Fun: Turbo Kick w/ Chalene Johnsons, Jet Skiing, Dancing everynight!, Private Cocktail Parties, Dressing up for Dinner was fun everyday, Massages, Facials, Shopping it never ended….

What I’ll never forget is the relationships we built together all while setting up our futures…Thank You Beachbody!!

DIAMONDS are a Girl's BEST FRIEND!!

A Night to Celebrate: Diamond Rank…Friendships…Business Success w/ a VIP Limo Night on the Town!

My Team has worked so hard the past year building their businesses, I wanted to CELEBRATE them!! My hubby hooked us up w/ his limo and we took a night off to have some fun, VIP Style!!

Ironically the “Diamonds” who have Achieved this coveted “ranking” have also become my Best of Friends!  I don’t say that lightly…but these ladies truly Inspire Me Everyday w/ their Determination, Goals and Fire to do something Great w/ their Life!!  And they are…changing lives, helping people get healthy/fit and build an amazing business at the same time!

YOU are ALL the Vision I had when I started my Team Beachbody Business – here we are 2.5 yrs later and WOW look how we have grown….

Its the Small Steps that will Lead to Successful Life!

It’s the little things you do everyday that will ADD UP and lead to a Successful Life…

This year I read a great book – The Slight Edge by Jeff Olsen – which really opened my eyes to a new way of thinking.  If you want to get better at something in your life–fitness, health, finances, marriage, relationships–its about taking the small steps DAILY towards that goal that ultimately add up to something great!  In fact the steps are so small that most people don’t do them because they seem insignificant, meaningless in fact…but in fact its just the opposite…5% of people in life will achieve their Ultimate Dreams because the WILL to CHOOSE to follow the Slight Edge!!!

Here are some examples and How I Applied the Slight Edge:

Losing Weight

Problem: Losing Weight doesn’t happen in a day or even in a short period of time. If you want to really do it right and keep the weight off it takes even longer.  Losing 1lb a week is considered healthy…In January 2010 I needed to lose 15lbs.  However the closer you are to your goal the harder it is to take it off.  I focused on the small, daily tasks that I could control which kept me thinking POSITIVE as well as gave me a sense of ACCOMPLISHMENT Everyday!

Small Daily tasks:

  • Kept a food journal of calories/meals/water
  • Eat 5-6 small meals a day
  • Drank Shakeology 1-2x a day
  • Worked out EVERYDAY: P90X – Turbo – Running – Strength Training
  • Pre-Planned meals by pre-cooking them and had go to foods always ready: veggies/fruit etc

Results: Lost 13lbs in about 6 months…still working on the last 2lbs!!  Lost a jean size and I am in the best physical/cardio shape of my life!!

Make More Income/Paying off Debt

Problem: 2 years ago I was working full time in a good paying  job but I wasn’t happy working a ton of hours and I still had a lot of credit card debt.

Goal: To own my own Business, Pay off Debt and become Financially Free!!

Small Daily Tasks: Once I found a Business I believed in, I signed up…I knew it was going to take TIME and PERSISTANCE to build it big!!!

  • Make a To Do List Everyday
  • Meet New People
  • Share w/ Friends what I was doing and how it can possibly help them as well
  • READ 10 pages of a good book
  • LISTEN to 15 minutes of a good audio
  • Commit to my fitness and nutrition program
  • Learn, Learn, Learn!!! Listen to Team Conference Calls / Webinars
  • Work on Personal Growth!! Become a BETTER PERSON!!

Everyday I repeat these tasks, I am the only one holding myself accountable.  If I don’t do them, no one will know….If I do them, I WILL KNOW!!

Results: I was able to walk away from my full-time “draining” j.o.b.!!! I am making the same full time income working from home!!  I am now working on paying off the debt and setting up our financial future….cheers to the next 2 years!!

Reading Good Books Will Change Your Life!!  Take the time out and dive in…your life is waiting!!
