Faith and Fitness

12771687_10153477968326801_7744392453548254109_oSometimes we get so wrapped up in our “To Do” list that we lose track of what’s important. Today has been ONE of those days I will be glad when it’s OVER. I needed to take a step back, breathe and refocus… And the best place for that is remembering what I’m so thankful for… This picture is a pretty good reminder. 

-Family
-God’s grace
-Healthy body 
-Happy home
-Passion for helping others

I’m going to get in a quick workout and get my mind right!!

I’ve decided to do something DIFFERENT in my Challenge Group this month, because I need to REFOCUS on the things that are most important to me. I believe that being HEALTHY takes much more than a good workout and clean eating. So, I’m hosting my first group centered around FAITH and fitness. Not only will we workout, we are going to go through the book, “Made to Crave,” which focuses on shifting our cravings from food and unhealthy habits to our relationship with God! I can’t think of anything more rewarding than learning to love ourselves, have a closer relationship with Christ, and getting healthy!!

I’m so excited about this, and YOU ARE INVITED!! So, here are the details-

✔30 days in a private group
✔Fitness program of your choice
✔Complete nutrition guide
✔Color coded containers for portion control
✔Shakeology
✔Group support
✔”Made to Crave” book study

I want to keep this group small so it remains intimate! I’m looking for FIVE ladies ready to change their life and give 100% in this group. If you are interested in joining us, CLICK HERE to fill out the application! The group will start next Monday, 2/29!

 

Growth in 2015

2015 growth

I’ve done a LOT of things in my life (especially career-wise) without REAL INTENTION because it was the EASY way out.

-Majored in journalism because it had the least amount of math.
-Got my teaching certification so I wasn’t working INSANE hours, was home before 5:00p, and had the same vacays as my kids.
-Worked in educational sales, because.. HELLLLOOO, summers and NOT being stuck in an office.

The problem with taking the easy way out or focusing on things that don’t matter… is you don’t end up where you want to be! While I actually enjoyed my major, teaching and being in sales, there were HUGE voids. Work still ruled my life, even though I had more than two weeks of vacation time, papers still had to be graded when the day was over, and to make more money (not really possible in the classroom), I had to work more, sign bigger accounts, put more miles on my car, and GIVE up what was most precious to me, TIME WITH MY FAMILY! BLAHHHHHHH!

Three years ago, for the first time in my adult life, I CHOSE “work” because it was what I WANTED to do. For the first time, I was in TOTAL control over the hours I spent working and HOW MUCH money I make. For the first time, I was able to do something that gave me EXTREME happiness while being rewarding financially. For the first time, my income was a direct reflection of the people I HELPED and the time I put in. I did not start really WORKING this as more than a hobby until spring of THIS year, and LOOK what happened!

I’m going to be REALLY brutally honest with you here. THIS IS NOT A GET RICH SCHEME, but you can build a full-time income pretty dang quickly if you put in the work, and you can make more money than you EVER imagined possible if you stick with it. You do NOT make a lot of money off of people signing up under you (ICKYYYYY ALERT). There are NO huge buy-ins to get started (YOU buy what you need to start your personal health/fitness journey- THAT is it). You do NOT keep products that you aren’t using at home. If you do NOT help your Challengers and Coaches, you are NOT successful. It’s actually really simple. You work on YOU. You share your journey (not a bunch of corporate promo pictures -GAG). You get to BE YOU and people want to follow you for EXACTY that.

This is real. The income can be LIFE CHANGING. The opportunity to GROW as a person and SHARE your journey, inviting along the way, is the ONLY requirement. Is this traditional?? No, BUT I recently realized, I have really never done things BY THE BOOKS… and without a doubt, this is the most rewarding, non-traditional thing I have EVER done… and guess what?! It’s CHANGED our life in more ways than one.

-I am surrounded by incredible people DAILY!
-My norm is positive and uplifting, and I have the opportunity every, dang day to RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS.
-I have grown a part-time business to a full-time income, and we increased our monthly paychecks by ALMOST 5x in 12 months. I’m not sure about you, but I have NEVER worked another job that I had the ability to be in TOTAL control of my income and get a 5x raise in ONE YEAR. (PS- I had another $1000 paycheck, but I got it on Dec. 2nd, so I didn’t even count that for November)

I seriously ask my husband ALLLLL the time… IS THIS REAL LIFE?! I am BLOW away with this opportunity. Blown away with the integrity of our products and mission. Blown away that I GET to lead by example every day. The obesity rate in the U.S. is SCARY, and with this opportunity, we can CHANGE lives, we can positively change relationships, and we can change the future of the people we LOVE most.

Our team is GROWING, and I am looking for LEADERS. I am looking for people that don’t want to settle for normal anymore. I am looking for moms & dads that want to be able to prioritize their families and not go without financially because they choose to do so. I am looking for women ready to CHANGE their life and make 2016 the best year yet… I am looking for women WILLING to work for it, to take responsibility for their actions and DEMAND more from life…. all while becoming better moms, wives, friends, and employees. I am looking for people ready to GO all in… no excuses… no backing down. I am looking for people who want to be the BEST in this business and BE MORE than they ever dreamed!

Sound like you?! I am going to take on FIVE new coaches THIS MONTH to personally mentor and show you exactly what I have done in this business to find success… as a busy, working wife and mom of THREE. If I can do it, ANYONE can! <3

Faith Bigger Than FEAR

FAITH bigger than fear3I heard something Sunday morning in church that I have thought about multiple times, every day since. If you are allowing FEAR to consume your life, you are NOT trusting God, but you are worshipping those fears. Have you ever felt a calling SO strong, but your FEAR kept you from going after it?! Of course you have. We all have. Fear is healthy, but letting it control your life, or hold you back from your dreams, is NOT. Three years ago, I believed deep down that coaching could change my family’s life, but I let the fear of failure, judgement, and the unknown hold me back. We are SOOOO programmed to do what society deems NORMAL, that we miss out on SO many opportunities to go where we are CALLED. WHY would anyone want to be NORMAL when life can be INCREDIBLE? God gives us the most amazing callings, yet we walk away because we don’t feel capable. Guess what?! God doesn’t call the QUALIFIED, he qualifies the CALLED. So, those FEARS… Let them go! That stirring in your heart, that you were made for MORE… Go after it!!! Let your FAITH be bigger than your fear. 

Failure is not an Option

Failure is NOT an OptionI remember years ago, when I just went with the flow, wherever that might take me. I gave a little bit of effort, but I never PUSHED myself past my comfort level. The worst part is, because I didn’t have BIG goals set in stone, I never felt the harsh reality of failure. I think sometimes, to protect ourselves, we are ok staying average and blending into the middle of the pack. Not any more.

Today, I see life much differently. I know that I am in total control of my successes, my financial goals, and where we end up in life. I’m not ok being just average. I want my children to experience the world, to take last minute trips, to study abroad, seeing the amazing sights of different countries and tasting the favorite cuisines of different cultures. I want them to know what their body is capable of, and I want to see them give their all in the sports they love. I want my children to BELIEVE they are capable of anything, if they work hard enough, and that they can have high standards for friends and relationships, because those are ALL options.

Because I now understand the power of goal setting and vision, I believe without a doubt, that failure is NOT an option. In the past year, just slightly tweaking a few old mindsets, our life has changed! Here are the FIVE things that are a MUST if you want to move towards big, scary goals, and a life of achievement.

1. SET GOALS WITH AN END DATE: A goal doesn’t matter much if you don’t know when you are going to achieve it. If you want to be a millionaire, you need to know when! Earning a million dollars by 90 years old is a LOT different than earning it by the time you are 50. That’s a lot of life you are going to miss out on living, by not setting an end date and doing daily actions to get you there.

2. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE SMARTER & MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN YOU: If you are the smartest, most successful person in the room, that doesn’t give you a lot of room for growth. Surround yourself with people who are where you want to be. You have a lot to learn from someone who has already been down the path you want to go down. Ask questions. Be willing to change. Learn something new every day.

3. CREATE A VISION BOARD THAT SHOWS WHAT YOUR LIFE LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOUR GOALS ARE ACHIEVED AND SHARE IT WITH OTHERS: If YOU can’t envision what the life of your dreams is going to look like, how are you ever going to be driven enough to achieve it. You need to be reminded every day what your “freedom” looks and feels like. Once you’ve created it, share it with others, so they can hold you accountable. As you complete a goal, check it off and create a new one.

4. BE COMMITTED TO CONSTANTLY LEARNING: I HATED personal development this time last year. I thought I was a confident enough person, I didn’t need it. Truthfully, confidence isn’t all you need. You need to always be learning, growing, and taking in information so that you can SHARE that with others, as you grow. If you aren’t growing, you will have NOTHING to give, and a leader/achiever always needs to be giving.

5. MAKE SURE YOUR LOVED ONES UNDERSTAND YOUR GOALS AND VISION: First of all, finding success, and reaching goals, isn’t nearly as much fun alone. Share your dreams and WHY you are working so hard on your business. Tell them why you are going back to school to finish your degree. Explain to them why you are trying to grow in your faith. Make sure they understand the importance of your physical transformation and becoming healthy. Let them in on what is driving you and what you want for your family’s future. Take them on the journey with you, so they understand your long hours, and they will REALLY appreciate YOU reaching your goals even more.

Make the decision that FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION, and make your dreams a reality.

Part-Time Coach. Full-Time EXTRA Income.

Sept Income Invite

My parents always told me it wasn’t polite to talk about money. So, if you are easily offended by that discussion… STOP reading! (Sorry, Mom!) When I signed up to be a coach, honestly, I just wanted the discount. Who doesn’t want to save money on a product you are buying anyway, right? What I quickly found was, that for me, Beachbody was LESS about workout programs and transformations and more about community and relationships. I was desperate for that.

Through my first Challenge Group, I found acceptance, support, and the encouragement I needed to be a BETTER version of myself. I wanted to share THAT feeling, that community, and the possibilities that came with being a part of it. I wanted to pay it forward and be a coach!

It’s been an incredible journey, experiencing the reward of helping others, and the freedom that comes with extra income. For the first couple of years, the money went towards things that were non-necessities; spa visits, vacations, shopping trips we didn’t necessarily need, the girls’ private school tuition, etc. Then, came the REAL freedom. Because of Beachbody, I was able to stay home with Marcus for the first year of his life. I never had to drop my infant at daycare. I never had to wake him up because I had to be at school to teach someone else’s child at 8:00a, and I didn’t have to leave the house at the crack of dawn to make a sales call 200 miles away. I got to be there for EVERY second of his life, and every one of his FIRSTS. This opportunity truly gave me freedom in the MOST incredible sense. Freedom to be a mom and a wife first, before any other obligation. When I looked at my September income, the growth from last year was exciting, but what was even CRAZIER… Last month’s income was the SAME income I made monthly, working FULL-TIME as a teacher, my first year in the classroom. Whoa.

I’m just an average mom and wife. I don’t have a degree in fitness. I am not a nutritionist or trainer; I simply LOVE helping other women lose weight, learn healthy habits, find confidence, and feel better in their own skin. I get to do that every, single day, part-time, and I am rewarded for it.

I could not be MORE excited to pay this forward and to help you build a business that gives you freedom, whatever that means to you! Do you want to be more present in your child’s life? Do you want to have the extra income to give your family real life EXPERIENCES? Do you want to travel the world and not worry about how you are going to pay for it? Do you simply want to have the accountability to really commit to your own physical transformation? Freedom is different for each one of us, but this new freedom that my family has… there is NOT a price tag you can put on it!

I am ready to mentor FIVE new coaches this month. If you are READY for a change, ready to RISE to empower others, and ready for the freedom this opportunity can give you, I want to talk to YOU! Please CLICK HERE to fill out the application to join the RISE DYNASTY.
