I get asked this question a lot: What does a Beachbody Coach do?
I’ve been a Beachbody Coach for over two years, and I have loved every moment of it. It has not always been easy, just as growing any other business isn’t always perfect, but it has been so fulfilling. Many people who aren’t familiar with Beachbody don’t really understand what Beachbody Coaches DO to make a living.
There are a lot of misconceptions about Beachbody Coaching, which you can check out if you are wondering about those, but this post is centered around what we actually do on a daily basis. 🙂
You may or may not know that Coaching replaced my income from my fulltime Paralegal job, and I quit that job in June 2014. So now I have the freedom to make my own schedule.
As a Beachbody Coach, I decided to take the route of building a team of other Coaches, which is not something you HAVE to do if you don’t feel comfortable. I never thought I would be comfortable in a leadership role, but I definitely am and absolutely love it. The individuals on my team are like a family to me.
So on a daily basis, I take a look at everything I need to accomplish that day and literally schedule it around what I have to do for the day. I do things such as check in with my accountability group that I run every month for my clients, check in with my team that are working towards certain goals to see how I can help, and build relationships. This business is all about relationships, and if that is not your focus, you will not have a successful Beachbody business! I care about people, build relationships, make friends, and help other people achieve their goals – that is what it takes to have a successful Beachbody business.
Many people think that I am stuck at home all day… so let me share more with you about that. If I am home all day, it is because I choose to be. What I mean by that is, if you don’t want to be at home to work, you don’t have to be! I can work from anywhere – I can work from a coffee shop, doctor’s office waiting room, the beach, or anywhere! If I have WiFi, I can work. Give me my iPhone or my laptop, and I’m good to go. I am somewhat of a homebody, and I enjoy being at home with my dogs during the day most days, so that is what I do. I also wanted to have the flexibility to work from home
Today, as an example, I had a dentist appointment, then I went to visit my nana at the nursing home. When I came home around noon, I started on the items I needed to do today! It is flexible, and I am not “tied down” to my chair or a schedule. I am pretty independent (ask my hubby!) so I do not enjoy being locked down to a schedule that I do not make myself. So Beachbody Coaching has solved that problem for me and I design my life how I want. 🙂
If you have any ounce of desire to learn about what it is that I do for a living and potentially doing it yourself, please fill out the short application (it’s literally 3 questions!) and you will be added to my next Coaching at a Glance preview group to get an inside look. 🙂 tinyurl.com/coachglance For the person that invited you, just put my name: Whitney DeLong.
I look forward to connecting with anyone I can share this with.
