Things You Should Know About Being a Beachbody Coach
Being a team beachbody coach has blessed my family in so, so, so many ways.
I was trying to tell people how easy this was, how anybody could do it. There was a time in my business when i got in there and realized that i could recruit people, but i didn’t have people that were activating. They would sign up and not do anything or they would sign up and not get involved. I was like, “Why are these people not doing anything? Why aren’t they working as hard as I am towards this?” and then I realized, “Oh, I told them they didn’t have to when I talked about this.”
If I got on here and said that it’s all ice cream and roses and cake and there’s never disappointments or setbacks or frustrations, then I would just be straight lying to you.
Here’s the interesting thing about this business. You have to be willing to invest a lot of time and energy into people up front that may or may not activate this training.
I go all in on these people. I invest a ton of time in my new people. They get access to my Facebook group, they get my best trainings, and then as I see people start to activate, those people actually get more of my time because two reasons. Number one, I love to see people succeed. If I see people taking my training and activating, those are the people I love to work with. And two, my income only goes up if the people that come into my organization actually produce. I’m not making money because somebody signed up.
There are times when you see a lot of potential in somebody. So you decide to set up some extra calls or spend some extra time or put them in a focus group because you believe in them. You wouldn’t invest in these individuals if you didn’t think they were serious. What happens is it’s easy to become frustrated and bitter in this business when you’ve invested extra time or resources into people and they never activate.
The frustrating thing that happens sometimes is that you invest in people and you’re trying to recognize them and really encourage them to keep things going, and I’m going through this right now, and the people I have invested in to help them start their business have not held their rank to move forward in their business so I have gone from a 15 star Diamond Coach to a 9 Star Diamond Coach. The frustrating thing about this business is that when that happens, it will cost the mentor that’s invested a ton of time and energy into these people tens of thousands of dollars when their own rank drops.
There are times in this business, if you’re in it for the long haul, that you’re just going to have to rebuild. I had a mentor a long time ago talk about how , “You’re constantly going to have to recruit to replace.” This shit happens. This isn’t the first time it’s happened to me and I’m sure it won’t be the last. You have to be willing to rebuild and start over and find new leaders.
I know that the people that plug in and do the things that I tell them to do get results. Period. End of story. What I teach people to do works, if they do it consistently. 9 times out of 10, it’s people that aren’t willing to do the work that say they aren’t getting results.
This business is hard. It’s not easy. It’s a simple business, but it’s not easy!
I know a bunch of coaches whose business are falling apart and they’re never tell you about it. This business ebbs and flows so if you’re in this thing, you need to know that!
You’d think that after a decade, it’s on cruise control and that you’ve figured it out and you’ve figured out how to start everybody right and you know how to get everybody results and you don’t. I’m trying to figure this thing out every day. I show up every day and it’s, “What can I do today to poke or prod or what tool can I give to somebody today that’s going to help them activate?” Sometimes it’s a pat on the back and sometimes it’s a kick in the ass.
I don’t know of another business model that can change your life as drastically or as quickly as this business can if you’re willing to just put your nose down and fucking grind your face off.
At the end of the say, we’re only looking for the people that are looking for us.
