And maybe I still do laugh a little becuase this job is FUN and a bit silly at times, but it's all for a good reason - to help others feel more confident about themselves, to have more energy to chase their kids around, or to improve their health enough to stop medications they are on. *
I've never considered myself a salesperson ( I still don't - I am helping people, not selling) and always said if I were to sell something it would have to be something I truly believe in. And I do believe in Beachbody products. You all know by now that P90X changed my life in more ways than just weight loss.
When I joined my coach Kelley's team last year, I simply wanted to make a few extra dollars. But thanks to the resources, support, and inspiration from Kelley and the rest of my team, I started to see the opportunity to truly make this a career and to change our lifestyle. With that faith, I was quit my full time job in corporate finance so that I could stay home full-time with my daughter and pursue a career that is not only enjoyable and fulfilling but allows me to work the hours that I want. *
When I started coaching my fitness was (and is!) still is a work in progress. You don't have to be in perfect shape to coach. You don't have to know everything about Beachbody or about fitness (that's what the world class trainers who designed the programs and your teammates are for). You don't need to have a million followers on social media or know anything about sales. What you do need is passion, commitment and a desire to be your own boss. To decide if you want to work on Monday or not. To have time to have a cup of coffee with your husband, friend or mom on a Thursday morning. To live life on your terms. *
I'm looking to personally mentor four new coaches in March. If you'd like to be one of them or have any questions about Beachbody coaching, please PM or email me at fitnessfataleblo @gmail.com.
