Building a Business as a Busy Mom

Busy Moms Build A Business
 



I can remember the day my life changed. My baby was born. After 9 months of feeling depressed, anxious, out of control, nervous, and at the end excited, my life was changing forever. I would no longer have just myself to worry about but a brand new baby and a family to love and support. I had been through the ringer so to speak when it came to weight loss and I wasn't looking forward to doing it again. I had big plans to start working out as soon as I could. Days, weeks, months went by and now we are at a year, and I've done 1 full program, worked out about 1-2x a week if I was lucky. The first year is so precious and I couldn't get past the excuses to start taking care of myself physcially. It didn't make it easier that the weight flew off. I was lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight, but not fitter. I lost a lot of muscle and definitely am not toned by any means. So we hit the year mark, and it's time. Time to commit to a program, to join my own challenge group that I run monthly to help others lose weight and feel better. I'm nervous. I'm out of shape, and I'm thankful that nutrition is my passion because I'm lucky enough to have that under control on most days. 

I made a post on facebook about toning up and doing the 21 day fix, a beginner Beachbody program. I have been using the nutrition plan for a year and it's how I lost my baby weight, with some help from nursing of course. What do I have to lose!!!!  This is where the journey begins!  21 Day Fix, PiYo, Insanity Max 30, Shakeology, Clean Eating, Challenge Groups, new friends, other moms, a total family overhaul. I know the results, because I've been through it before when I became a coach. I was asked to join a challenge group and drink shakeology when I originally needed to lose weight from the Freshman 25!! I did Turbo Jam, Les Mills Pump, and Asylum, drank my shakeology, ate clean, and met friends that "got me" and I was in the best shape of my life. I ran a half marathon under 2 hours for darn sake! (Never again, I couldn't walk for 3 days!) 
 
After going through this experience, originally, I just felt like there was no way I could NOT share this with others.  I mean I finally had found a way to transform my body into a healthy vessel that I felt confident in from the comfort of my own home, plus I made amazing new friends and had an ongoing community of support to get me through all the good and the bad days.  I wanted to shout this from the rooftops!  



Well the best way to share your own results and help others feel the same way was to become a coach.  As skeptical as I was and sure I was only doing it for the discount, I went ahead and did it anyways.  I became a Beachbody Coach and set out to help other people, and now moms feel the same way that I did!
 Now as a stay at home mom, with an infant, soon to be toddler, I began building my business from my kitchen table while my daughter napped, before they woke up in the morning and when they went to bed at night!  

I really started with just wanting to help 1 person feel the exact same way that I did.  Honestly, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  I had never heard of network marketing, of social media as a source of income and I truly had no expectations other than to just see other people feel better about themselves.  So I started small, I became a sponge to everything I could read and learn about Beachbody and nutrition.  I invited my friends and family to join a support and accountability group and I just dabbled in this business.  I quickly realized that there was an opportunity out there to really earn a significant income and at that time our family could definitely use it.  Brett and I did make the sacrifices necessary so that I could stay at home with the Ellie.  Which meant financially no wiggle room.  So a little extra income from home would definitely allow us to have some cushion in our budget.  That was appealing to me!  

So I set out to grow this business BLINDLY!  Honestly, no clue what I was doing!  But again my mission was to help others feel the way I had felt when I took those after pictures!  

What did I do:  Well I started with social media and even more specifically Facebook.  I shared my transformation story, everyday I shared motivational quotes, tips and the nutrition tips and tricks that had helped me to get lose weight.  I shared the ways that I was helping my family eat healthier, their favorite recipes, travel tips, snack ideas, and all those things that people ask about when it comes to weight loss.  I just put myself out there as a source of knowledge.  Before to long people started coming to me for advice!  This is truly where the journey began.
 
 
 
 


Example of Social Media Sharing

 


I absolutely loved what I was doing as a coach. The more I ran challenge groups, the more my customers got results, the more I was motivated to make my groups better, to help people get better results and to continually grow myself.  


 
Challengers Results- The Most Rewarding Feeling Ever


This business was also filling a part of me that needed adult interaction after being with the kids all day everyday!  This business was allowing me to add value into society and to contribute financially to our family and that made me feel very good!!!  

So, lets fast forward 6 months!  I had the hang of challenge groups and now it's onto learning the business!  I began developing systems and plugging coaches in to team trainings to help train my new coaches, I collected my favorite tools, videos, and resources and started teaching my new coaches how to successfully do what I was doing!  To me this was just like watching my challengers lose weight, it was so rewarding to see my coaches now having success with inviting, with sharing and getting challengers into their own groups!  I was so excited to see them earn an income as well.  The more that I saw a need the more systems, trainings and materials I have created to close the knowledge gap!  
 

 
Busy Moms Build A Business

Let me tell you this:  I truly have done this business from my kitchen table, either before the kids wake up, during naptime or in the evening when they go to bed!  I have been able to have the best of both worlds and while I made some sacrifices personally to grow my business, I wouldn't trade one single early morning or late night!  This business has been nothing short of a blessing in the Morgan families life! Brett's now finished Insanity, Body Beast, and is on to Max30. Even Ellie has been caught doing planks and squats! 


 
Fitness Is A Part Of Our Family
So I am sitting here today writing this blog post and my mission and goal is to help other moms that might be reading this and are interested in joining Team Beachbody as a coach.  Maybe you want to start your fitness journey first and then transition into a coach,  Maybe you are already fit (whether it was thru a beachbody program or not) and you want to inspire other women to live the same healthy life that you do.  Or maybe you crave to have something that allows you to step into the working world but still gives you the ability to be home and present with your kids?  Well I truly believe without a shadow of a doubt this was my CALLING!  

So I'm inviting YOU to join along side of me and let me teach you what I have done to build an amazing business!  

I am going to be starting a mentoring program on Monday March 2nd where I am going to personally mentor a small group of women through a closed online group, 1:1 calls, weekly team calls and daily interactions to start laying the foundation for a successful business.  


I have created a system for my team based on what Team Beachbody has created to train new coaches and my own personal experience that has proven to be extremely successful at getting each and every new coach started right.  My goal is to not overwhelm you with the business but to teach you how to get started, to prioritize what is most important, to manage your time, to make this work while still having preserved your family balance and to help you earn an extra income for your family or even honestly replace a salary or income from a job you would like to change!  It takes a little prioritizing, time management, and multi tasking but you can absolutely make this business work for you! Whether its just a few hours a week or full time I can help you set goals that meet your lifestyle.  I have no minimum expectations and you can truly do as little or as much as you want as a coach!  I let you set the pace and I match that pace with your effort!!!  I am not your Boss or Dictator but I am your mentor, coach and guide! 

The new coach mentoring program can be done from your home, your computer, ipad, laptop or iphone.  If you have internet access you can build this business!  You will have access to all of my documents, scripts, guides, training videos, and myself if you join my team.  I train all of my new coaches in a small group setting and I truly give you my word that I will be involved in your training!  I want to teach you not only how to inspire others to lead a healthy life but how to do it with balance and with passion!

I will honestly say that many people are afraid to take this leap of faith. They think it sounds like a good opportunity but most are afraid that they won't make any money at it, that they will have to sell to their friends, or that they don't know anybody to invite!  Trust me, I was right there with you!  I had less than 300 friends on facebook, and I was deathly afraid of people thinking I was only out to sell them something! So I will truly share with you how I overcame that false belief and how I moved forward and built a sucessful business in 4 years. 
 


Does this sound like something you would like to do?  Then I invite you to join my team!  If you would like more information about coaching on my team then please complete the application below and I will contact you personally in the next 24 hours about your application!

I am only accepting a limited number of new coaches so please don't delay your response!  

Other ways to gather more information:  Our team will be running a 5 day behind the scenes look into what it means to be a coach. You can ask questions in a closed group, you can get answers about what it means to be a Beachbody Coach on my team and we will provide information to you on different topics through the week to help you make a more educated decision on joining the my Team.  Please email me at cass0632@gmail.com if you would like to participate in the "Behind the Scenes" group.

 

Hope to see all of you busy moms as new coaches!!!!!!
