We Are NOT Doing That Beachbody Coach Scam Thing!

By Kelly Songy Nelson If you’re a frequent visitor to Coach Jimmy’s Facebook page, you may have seen that we had a big announcement this week! We proudly and excitedly announced that I was officially a full time Beachbody coach! No more Corporate America for this gal! This has been a long awaited answered prayer for us and as I stopped to give thanks for this amazing blessing, I was taken back to the moment when our lives were changed by Beachbody… Jimmy and I had only been married maybe a year (maybe less) when a friend recommended Power 90 to him. Like most newlyweds, we were strapped for cash – I was working in Corporate America and Jimmy was acting and waiting tables, so spending money on some “as seen on TV” workout was not on my shopping list!! “But Kel,” Jimmy said, “if we don’t like it, we…

The College Dropout, No Experience Business Plan

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson “I would love to go do that, but I don’t have enough vacation days” Has this sentence ever crossed your lips?  It’s pretty common for most people.  I know it has come up in conversations with me and my wife many times in the early years of our marriage.  Vacations, medical emergencies, kids events, family gatherings all at the mercy of your corporate policy manual.  Frustrating right?

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Last weekend marked a pretty significant anniversary in my life.  Five years ago, I took a step of faith to become a Beachbody Coach.  I know that term still contains a lot of mystery for many people. What is a “Coach” exactly?  What are the requirements?  Am I qualified? How much does it cost? As a busy person, what exactly do I have to do when I sign up?  Is it like being a trainer?  I’m not fit yet, will anyone want me as a Coach? That is just a small sample of the questions I hear every day.  Before I answer any of those questions, let’s jump in a time machine and go back five years to 2007.  I was living in New York City with my wife, Kelly.  I talked her into moving up there at the end of 2005 so I could…
