I’ve come across many people who become a Beachbody Coach and start out with the completely wrong attitude. They are people who say, “I think I’ll give this Beachbody Coach thing try”. Maybe they’ve done a Beachbody workout program and had great results, maybe they love Shakeology, or maybe they just know someone else who is a successful Coach and want to sign up because it appears to be “easy money” with little effort.
Whatever the reason is for deciding to become a Beachbody Coach, you are setting yourself up for failure if you start out with the attitude of, “I think I’ll give this a try”. The reason this is the wrong attitude to have is because this is a tough business to succeed in and you can’t start out half cocked and just going through the motions. Being a Beachbody Coach is not something that should be treated like hobby. This a real business that needs to be treated as such if you want to grow a successful business.
The right thing to be saying when starting out with your Beachbody business is;
“There is nothing that is going to get in the way and stop me from growing a successful business.”
You have to plan on working hard and putting in the time and effort necessary to build your business. You will need to step out of your comfort zone and be persistent in the daily actions that will help you succeed. This all may seem a little over the top to you, but it is necessary. There will be times when your Beachbody business is slow, when members or your downline stop producing or quit entirely, and you will have second thoughts and think about giving up yourself, those are all normal things that happen to all of us. The key is is power through and stay on track.
Don’t get me wrong, it is still an option to sign up as a Coach and treat it like a hobby. You don’t have to be so “gung ho” and driven. You can passively market your Beachbody business throughout your daily routine and still make some decent extra income. But if you want to be a top earner in the company, and grow a large organization as quickly as possible, you are going to want to work as hard as you can. The faster you can get going the better you will be off in the long run.
The point of this post is to not sign up as a Beachbody Coach thinking you’re just going to give this a try. Know, with certainty, that you’re going to be successful building your Beachbody business and do everything possible to make that happen.
Beachbody Gives Us The Land And Materials To Build Our Dream House
Approximately 12 years ago, at the time of this writing, Beachbody launched their home business opportunity which has grown to over 300,000 distributors, and that number is growing on a daily basis. The opportunity has been extremely successful and has changed many lives physically, and financially.
While there are no guarantees that everyone who joins is going to make money. How successful a person is depends entirely on the effort the individual. It is just like anything else in life, you get out what you put in. The concept can be compared to any of Beachbody’s workout programs, you can’t just press play and sit on the couch and watch them. You have you actually do the workouts, and give an honest effort if you want to see results.
Allowing Beachbody customers who love the workouts to participate in this business opportunity is truly a gift. Although anyone can sign up and participate in the business, I’ve found that those most successful are the ones who actually use the products themselves, and have seen great results with them. In a business like this, in order to be successful, one has to have a true belief in the product, this way it is not really “selling”, but sharing.
Plug Into A Brand And System That Is Proven Successful
I compare Beachbody’s business opportunity to building a house. Beachbody is give their distributors the land, and all of the materials they need completely for free. All one needs to do to take advantage of the gift, is learn how to build a house. Think about it, if someone was going to give you an acre of land, and all of the materials you needed to build your dream home from the ground up, and the only catch was you had to build the house yourself, would you take the time to learn how to build that house?
Of course you would. You may have to buy some books, and take some classes to learn how everything is done, but once that house is built, it would totally be worth it. If you are lucky, you may have a little knowledge on building a house, but in most cases, there is a learning process for us all. This is a real business that has a competitive nature to it. Those who invest in themselves to learn things such as marketing, adverting, prospecting, lead generation, or any skill that will help grow their business, will be the ones who succeed. Expect the first year to be a learning year in which you become competent in the business.
When I say, “Beachbody is giving us the land and materials”, I’m referring to the fact that we are allowed to use their already established brand, they provide great training, and have a game plan for Coaches to follow. But the responsibility still falls on the individual to take advantage of all of the things that are offered. Just like the saying goes, “you can lead a horse to water….”.
Beachbody is giving us a gift by allowing to us to share their products with others, and get paid for it. There are many customers who were sharing their success stories from programs like 21 Day Fix, Liift4, or Hammer adn Chisel to friends and family, why not sign up to be a Beachbody Coach and get paid for your referrals. Beachbody is a company with Integrity that I am proud to be a part of.
