If you’ve seen my posts, you know that I'm lucky enough to live on a sail boat for 6+ months of the year. ⛵️I'm a long-time runner, but I needed something I could do on the boat. I found this AMAZING online fitness and nutrition group, and I was welcomed to join. I was also invited to be a “coach.” A Coach. Here were my thoughts:
🤡 Are you kidding me?? 😂 What could I possibly offer as a coach? (honestly, even calling myself that word made me giggle a little).
🤷♀️ I can barely keep MYSELF on track sometimes – so how could I ever motivate anyone else??
But when I stopped practicing law full time about 3 yrs ago, I promised myself to try new things and get out of my comfort zone. And maybe this coaching thing would keep me working out consistently, and help curb my sugar cravings – ice cream and cookies, anyone?? 🍦🍪
😬 I was NERVOUS about it. I mean, really, I went to school for a LONG TIME, and had no background in fitness or nutrition coaching, so why on EARTH would I think this was a good idea?? But I was watching some other people who were doing it, and I saw the difference it was making in their lives. So I took that little step forward, said “what the heck, and I signed up.
At first, I just wanted to pay for my superfood shake every month, and support my seriously INSANE travel addiction! 🌎✈️ I knew I enjoyed being part of a group with similar goals, and helping people, so I thought maybe I could keep a “zero net” effect on the budget.
Fast forward to today: I get FAR more than simply paying for my shakes. I am tapped into one of the MOST supportive, kind and encouraging group of people I’ve ever known. ❤️ I have the tools to maintain my health and fitness wherever I am. 💪 And I get PAID to help others get and stay healthy, too!! 💰 How cool is that?
👉You can do this, too. Some of us just do it, like I did at first, to help pay for their shakes. Some use it to pay for kids’ schools, or a weekend away, or other important projects. Still others turn this into a full-time gig – on part-time hours – and replace and EXCEED the income from their "real" jobs!
All because they took that first step.
You can, too. Join my team!
