True story: Yesterday, in the middle of the week I had to run to the tire shop. As i was sitting there, waiting for them to put the new tires on the car, I felt an immense wave of personal satisfaction. Is it because I love that rubbery smell of tires surrounding me? Nope. Is it because I am a sucker for burnt coffee and 8 month old issues of Field and Stream? Sorry, try again.
I am happy because I was able to pay for these tires before I bought them. I am smiling while I write this because I was able to actually conduct business on a routine week day at the shop from my mobile office, AKA my phone, while I waited for my new tires as I made money that will go towards Christmas presents or whatever else might come my way. Tires are expensive and I am happy I was able to buy them and not have to charge them or skip a week's worth of groceries. I did this.
My journey with BeachBody has been satisfying because I think I represent a large portion of people reading this. I am not filthy rich and my lifestyle is nothing close to extravagant. I don't jet off to tropical locations or have a boat, 5th wheel, plane, or pet black panther. I don't shop at organic stores and I love curling up on the couch at the end of the night to watch The Walking Dead or New Girl (yes... both). I don't think you and I are that different.
When I started working with BeachBody I just wanted to make enough bank to cover my Shakeology and any other orders I might want. But after really jumping in and deciding that I wanted to do this as my job, I am actually contributing to my family income in real and practical ways. I JUST BOUGHT FREAKING TIRES!!!!!! How cool is that, especially this time of year when cash is at a premium due to the holidays.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this cool story and maybe encourage some of you who might be sitting on the fence and unsure of whether or not you want to go all in. You wont regret it and it would be my honor and pleasure to partner with you.
Drop Me a line so we can talk about it!
First of all, I apologize that I have not been very active on here. It is definitely not from a lack of words in my head...its just that I am not very good at getting them out. I have had few cool things happen in the last few weeks..and so, I will do better at sharing them.
Today is the first that I am still pinching myself about <3
Today is a $17,742.00 milestone.
I gathered my family and we sat around the computer as i pushed submit. We did it all together because it is something we all have had a part in. We just paid off the last remnants of a $17,000+ credit card debt. Hitting that submit button, we have erased a substantial amount of emotional stress and financial weight. In that moment, we lifted a burden from our family that has hung around for years, reminding us that life has a way of sneaking up on you even when you are an excellent planner. In that click of a button, thanks MOSTLY to the work I do with BeachBody, the results of my labor speak loud and clear :-)
When Curt went back to college, we started getting into debt. It was out of control and we were only able to ever pay the minimum owed. Trying to live on a teacher salary and retail job just doesn't cut it. I am a fairly frugal person and my family lives within its means so it was frustrating when we would make a little progress but then have an unexpected emergency (thanks, life!) occur and before we knew it, we would owe more. $17,000.00 is not a small amount of change and it added stress and pressure and it always felt like it was hanging over our heads while never dwindling enough to inspire any real amount of hope. We were always just treading water.
So, when I heard about beachbody and that you could get healthy and earn an income, I had a hard time believing it. One of those "to good to be true" type of things. (Im sure some of you have thought the same thing, believe me, I get it.) It's been 26 months since I started making payments on our debt with my beachbody earnings. Some months I was able to pay off more than others but the one consistent factor in all of this is that I was able to pay more than the MINIMUM every single month.
Listen. I'm not writing this to try and sound like some infomercial or to just "sell a product." And i am not saying I only used my earnings to pay this credit card off. We don't have a summer home on the lake or a boat and we don't vacation in Europe for months at a time. My newest car is 10 years old! ;-) I am saying that for this family, who couldn't afford more than the minimum payments on our cards...to have paid that off in 26 months...thats amazing! Paying off this debt because of the hard work and energy I put into my business is something I want to tell everyone!
Because this is real life.
Not some story I heard from my cousin's barber's boyfriend's accountant. This is my story and it's real. We were in debt and now because I took that leap of faith and worked hard for 2 years, that debt is gone. That credit card debt that was drowning me...is gone. This really works and I hope it can encourage anyone who is on the fence about whether this is worth the time, dedication, and effort. This company can change your life...inside, outside, your families lives. I want that for you!
This is my story and it's just beginning. Next stop...STUDENT LOANS! Woo hoo!!!
