by Coach Carrie Casserly
Almost 7 years ago I made the decision to sign up to be a Beachbody coach. Not because I wanted to join an MLM or because I thought I was going to “get rich quick” …..but because I fell in love with Shakeology and I wanted the discount!! Duh. 😜
Here’s what happened though. Beachbody products and the workout programs changed my life. I thought after having Clark and Olivia I was destined to be bigger and heavier than I had ever been. I thought my new “mom body” was what I’d have for the rest of my life. Honestly! I literally thought that I just had to accept the fact that some moms just never lose that extra “baby weight” even if their kids were born years prior!! I “thought” I was eating healthy. I was working out at the gym 3 to 5 times per week too!! Talk about frustrating!
Finally, when I was able to lose the last 15 pounds of weight I was still holding onto after Clark was born (he was almost 4 years old at the time), my friends and family noticed!! I was shouting from the rooftops what I was doing because I was so excited that I finally found a healthy way to get back in shape!! No magic pills or crazy diets either!!
THAT’S when I started paying it forward to help as many people that would let me help them by using the tools I used!! That’s when my MLM that I signed up for to get the discount turned into a life changing opportunity.
No, I did NOT get rich quick. I’m still not rich. Not financially anyways. BUT I can provide for my family. I can work from home and be here to take my kids to school and pick them up. I can afford to go on trips and vacations every now and again. I can afford to put clothes on my kids back and buy my daughter a homecoming dress. I can afford to shop for organic groceries and put healthy food into my family’s body! Being able to do ALL of that makes me RICH….In my eyes.
I am still striving to help people overcome the frustrations of being over weight, feeling unhealthy and not knowing what to do about it long term!! That’s what fuels me to keep doing what I do EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. In a society that wants INSTANT gratification and magic formulas that will melt fat over night…..it’s not easy doing what I do sometimes. Lol!! I’m all about the healthy route….not the easy route.
I’m a coach because I LOVE helping people. I LOVE the company I stand behind and their purpose. I LOVE knowing that I can stand behind what I do 110 percent. I LOVE being my own boss and answering to MYSELF!! Trust me when I tell you it’s hard answering to yourself sometimes because when you fail there’s nobody else to point your finger at. I have to take FULL responsibility for my successes AND failures. Yikes.
I’m sharing this because I’ve helped change my own life for the better by doing what I do. I’ve helped change other people’s lives for the better too. I worked HARD to get to where I’m at and I’m still striving to do better. I don’t promote what I do as “get rich quick”. I don’t care where you work or what you do for a living. I don’t care if it’s Beachbody or another MLM……YOU GET WHAT YOU WORK FOR!! Period.
If you love the idea of being healthy and fit, being able to earn a dual income (or in my case making it your sole income) by helping other people along the way and just being an independent bad ass mompreneur……we should chat!
