The last few weeks I have been in my own thought bubble. From thinking about my dreams & goals, to thinking about the past and my struggles … to thinking about my faith and how everything is shaping me. . I remember soon after my mother passed how much I felt I didn’t belong anywhere. I was only in the United States for less than two years when this happened – and to say I felt like a stranger to everyone around me is an understatement. The only familiar anything was my father. I was pulled out of my country, didn’t speak English, had to make new friends, learn a new language, go to a new school, be in a new country and then *poof* mom was gone. The security…

Beachbody Coach Sneak Peek | What Does a Coach Do? If I was an outsider looking into my life, I would be utterly confused! What the heck does she DO all day?? If you are scratching your head … wondering how I can stay home all day (besides when I teach classes) and build a business … you are invited! The whole concept of being a Beachbody Coach can seem so abstract and even seem SCAM-Y haha. Pablo knows, I am one of the BIGGEST skeptics. I question everything! I usually never buy anything or go anywhere until I read reviews & do a ton research. I also like to ask a lot of questions – like I’m interviewing people!! From being BURNED from buying crap or hiring the wrong contractor or going to wrong…

Why Personal Trainers – and Other Fitness Professionals – are Becoming Beachbody Coaches Over the past year, I have perfected how to balance my two businesses: Beachbody Coaching and my Live Group Fitness Training. Although both businesses have the purpose of helping others get healthier, they are quite different in approach and discipline, producing different revenue streams.

Through Beachbody Coaching, I have learned how to use it to better support my clients and increase my income at the same time. I no longer struggle with addressing nutrition properly as Beachbody has a program for that.  I no longer stress if I need to take time away from the studio and from my…

If you’re Over It … believe me I KNOW the feeling. I was there a couple of years ago. It’s not fun. And it’s depressing. But the good news is that YOU can always do something about it! You just have to believe in yourself … and I mean REALLY BELIEVE in yourself. But anything can be done if put your mind and heart into it. I had always heard that statement as a little girl, “you can do anything you want,” and I believed it. As the years went by and I transitioned from a little girl to a young woman, maybe some life lessons made me a little jaded for a period of time and that “you can do anything you want,” statement became a total joke. I…

Unfortunately the 80’s and 90’s gave Network Marketing a bad reputation with the rise and (quick) fall of pyramid schemes. WARNING – WARNING … they are NOT the same thing!! What people DO NOT understand is that there IS a HUGE difference between Network Marketing (aka MLM) and a pyramid scheme. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) explains that network marketing is a means to sell goods or services through distributors. By being part of a network marketing company usually entitles the distributor (0r rep) to earn commissions on sales or products or services sold as well as for recruiting other distributors. On the other side … Pyramid schemes may have similar structures BUT have a completely different focus. Pyramid schemes reward members for pretty much just recruiting new distributors, and…
