Business Briefing & Home Party Success!

I sent this out to my team of coaches who opted into my Coach Team News Letter, but just had to post it here as well.

What an AMAZING weekend of learning and stepping outside our comfort zones!

After much procrastination and hesitation on my part I finally held the first local Business Opportunity meeting in my area. Talk about a learning experience. I found that the venue isn't going to work! To bright a room, its got an odd shape making it difficult to set up chairs, it's to loud, even tho its in a library! I also learned that the laptop I used isn't up to the task. All these things you may think made the briefing a failure right? WRONG! I found out what didn't work and what worked and how to make it all better. I was able to do the briefing, (once my laptop came to life), and practice makes perfect!

I'm fired up! I'll be scheduling a new briefing that will start right after I get back from Summit. It be at a different venue on a different day, and by doing the presentation I just get better!

Now for the Home Party event! Team member, Angie Clark is a personal trainer who just became a coach a little over two weeks ago. She wanted to have a home party to introduce her clients to Beachbody's solutions, but she was reluctant, nervous and just unsure about how it would all go. She sat in on last week's Nationwide Coach Call where Carl said, "if you're looking to start a fit club or home party, do it! What are you waiting for, it doesn't have to be perfect". Angie said, "He was talking to ME"!

We got on the phone and she set it all up and it was a SMASHING SUCCESS! I came away PUMPED! Angie is fired up! Look out, this is a woman ON THE MOVE!

Here's the email she sent to me last night:

Well my 1st home party has officially come and gone and WOW was it fun! I was so dang nervous and apprehensive about how my clients were going to respond to both the products and the business opportunity but I had nothing to worry about. I could not believe how easy it was to get the information communicated to them via the Solutions DVD especially the Shakeology segment. We simply shared our stories and experience with Beachbody and why we're passionate about the products and the business. That sharing and the 3rd party tools lead 4 of my clients to literally throw down their credit cards as I signed them all up as coaches right then, right on my own computer. How totally cool is that!!!

So after 25 invites, 10 shows, 4-5 shakeology customers, and 4 coaches (well 5 if you count my husband who I finally signed up) - THAT IS A GREAT DAY and VERY SUCCESSFUL PARTY! I can't thank you enough!! I'll just keep on keepin' on and that'll re-pay ya. ;0)

Success is just on the other side of uncomfortable! Angie was the only person standing in the way of her OWN success. She was waiting for things to be perfect and by waiting SHE was contributing to her own LACK of success. Let the Game Plan and the 3rd party tools do what they're designed to do, they simply inform those who are interested in learning more.

If you don't have the 3rd party tools, get them! They're available in your coach store under Coaches Items. If you've been waiting to have a home party or start a business briefing, what are you waiting for?

Congratulations to Angie and her new team of coaches! Angie will be Emerald on Thursday, but don't look for her to be Emerald for long, heck I wouldn't be surprised if Angie isn't attending the Diamond Coach reception at this year's Summit!

Step outside your comfort level!

Just reflecting a bit on the day, WOW! What a fantastic day!

We had perfect weather, me and the kids did our part to clean up around the public library and local creeks on Earth Day with the Scouts.

Suzette & I had a successful Biz Op meeting.

I welcomed a new member to the ever growing team of Team Beachbody coaches. Gene is on the P90X Journey and really doing well!

I met a teacher in the neighborhood who wants to get herself back in shape & is going to help me put a Fit Club together at the school with her teacher buddies!

We went to dinner and ran into some other neighbors; she's doing P90X and just finished week 7 and is loving it! She's looking at starting her home based Team Beachbody coaching business as well, she figures she's already "coaching" a sister and several friends, kind of a no brainer.

Oh yeah, gave the young lady who served us Suzette's TBB business card, everybody can use a few extra bucks working part-time especially when you're a going to college!

Heck of a day!

You want to learn more about how you can change your physical health & your financial wellness? Let me know and we'll see if Team Beachbody is the right fit for you. The business works, the only question is; does it work for YOU? Let's find out!

Primal Blueprint update

Here's an update on my progress with the Primal Blueprint.

I've been on the Primal Blueprint diet for a little over 2 weeks and I'm down from 182 to 177. I didn't measure my BF but I'm definatly leaner, prolly around 8-9%.

I was able to manage the new program while on a 10 day spring break vacation, i just happen to get 8 awesome workouts in and still had a great time.

We, Suzette and I, always get great workouts in, you have ao much more available time so there is no rush and we just bring it! When you've done P90X for 10 rounds you tend to be a bit of a show-off at a resort hotel gym. ;). What can I say...

If you think you can't do the Primal with a busy schedule, that's really just an excuse, much like the excuses NOT to workout instead of making reasons TO.

"Easy to do, but also easy not to do".

I choose "DO"!

More updates to come!

"It's Simple, Just Not Easy"!

One Pound of Fat

Sitting our hotel room this morning, I'm getting my reading in before we're off to Legoland. Suzette recalled a story her first roommate in collage had posted to the bulletin board in the room.

Enjoy your day!


One Pound of Fat

Hello! Do you know me? If you don't, you should. I am ONE POUND OF FAT, and I am the happiest pound of FAT that you would ever want to meet! Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me! After all, I am only ONE POUND OF FAT. Just ONE POUND. Everyone wants to lose 3 or 5 or 15 pounds, but never ONLY one. So, I just stick around and happily keep you. Then I am free to add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice... That is, until I have grown to 10, 20 or even 30 pounds in weight... YES... it is fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT... left to do just as I please.

So, when you weigh in, go ahead... just keep on saying, "Oh I only lost one pound." (As if that is so terrible.) For you see, if you do this, you will encourage others to hang around me because they will think that I am not worth losing. And I LOVE being around you... your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips, and every other part of you. HAPPY DAYS! After all, I am ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!
