FAQ: My friend’s, spouse, and family doesn’t support me
[0:00:10.2] KC: Welcome to the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan. I am a Team Beachbody Coach, my wife and I have been coaching for about five years as of the recording of this and about three and a half years in, we were inducted into the Beachbody Millionaire’s Club. I’m a three time elite coach, have over 23,000 coaches on my team, on my down line and we also have over 20 five star and above coaches.
I’m also the host of the podcast, All About the Business of Life, that’s our mothership podcast helping people to identify, create, and eventually realize the life they love to live. So that’s All About the Business of Life is our sister podcast and today before we get started, I just want to go through two quick things.
The first, at the end of today’s episode, I’m going to talk in detail about a free PDF download. You really want to make sure you download this. It’s a snapshot of 50 coaches and just talking about who they are, what they like about Beachbody, the income that they’re making and it’s really important for two reasons.
First of all, it’s going to give you the understanding of who actually becomes a coach and it’s also going to help you to really understand that yes, you can do this and you can be successful with it. So in order to get that free PDF, just send a text message to 38470 and include the word “Beachbody” in the body of that text message. Again, 38470 and include “Beachbody”.
And as a special give away, this month we’re going to choose one person. So for everybody that texted in and gets that free giveaway, we’re going to choose one person and we’re going to give away a free bag or box of Shakeology, $130 value. So go ahead, send that text message to 38470, the word “Beachbody”, you’re really going to like what we send over to you.
Also, if somebody else sent you to this podcast, make sure that you reach out to them directly. If you found this podcast through either some search through the inter web somewhere or my wife or myself sent you here and you want to learn more about working with us, go ahead and swing over to Keithcallahan.com/partner.
All right, enjoy today’s episode.
[00:03:09.3] KC: Welcome to the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast. Keith here and today, we’re talking about what if you have a spouse, family members, friends that don’t support you in this business? So you’re considering becoming a coach and you started to talk to a few other people about it. Maybe it was your spouse, maybe it was a family member, maybe it was friends and they were unsupportive about it.
So I’m going to start by saying that this is sort of a loaded question and I’m probably going to ruffle a few people’s feathers with my answer on this one but the first thing I would suggest is have them listen to the FAQ about pyramid scheme and I forget what the other — but basically it says Pyramid Scheme and then there’s something else, “Network Marketing is a Scam” or something like that. But it’s all one title. It’s under one of the FAQ’s on this podcast. But listen to that one because sometimes, they really don’t understand what this business is and so that episode may help.
The other thing, this is the part that may ruffle a few feathers, the other thing that I would say is, if you have a healthy relationship with whoever it is like if it’s your spouse and they’re like, “I really don’t want you to do this,” for whatever reason, ask them if they can give you three months or six months to try this business out and get it going and really prove it because sometimes there’s legit reasons where they don’t want you to do it. Maybe it’s because it’s going to take time away from the kids or you want to get it started but you don’t have the $150 to sign up or whatever, is money that can be spent elsewhere.
So I would recommend asking, just having a real conversation letting them know that it’s something that you’re passionate about, letting them know that it’s something that you’re excited about and you really want to do. Even if you don’t agree, here’s the ruffling the feathers part; if it’s a healthy relationship, they should honor and respect your decision to try it. If they don’t honor and respect your decision to try it, I don’t think it’s an issue about this, it could be something deeper. Ah! Yes, I just said that.
So there’s only so many things we can fix. There’s only so many things I can address in this podcast and with this business opportunity but if you’ve got someone that’s telling you, “You’d better not do that. You’re going to go and be around women,” or, “You’re going to be around guys,” or whatever it is, those are bigger issues than I can address in this podcast.
So if it’s the unsupportive spouse but there’s boundaries like you guys respect each other and there’s a healthy relationship and healthy boundaries there and you can say, “Listen this is something that I am really passionate about, I really want to try it. Can you give me a little bit of space?” That’s a healthy thing but if it’s something deeper than that and I’ve seen so many different things. I’ve seen religious things, I’ve seen you name it. Tt’s just been a million different things.
But yeah, if there’s that healthy respect for one another, love for one another, wanting to see the other person happy, wanting to entrust all that stuff and I know I’m teetering a line here, but yeah if there is that, just ask for a little bit of time. If there isn’t that, then I honestly can’t answer it in this podcast. But yeah, pray that you do get to that point.
All right, that is everything for “What if my spouse doesn’t support me?”
[00:07:29.3] KC: All right, so I hope you’re enjoying these episodes. I know that I really enjoyed putting them together for you and I just want to talk to you about a bonus that we’ve put together for you. So I know that there’s so many people from so many different walks of life that have come onto our team and have experienced success with this business. First, I just want to state to you and I want you to really hear this, you can do this. It doesn’t matter what your background is, what you’ve done in the past, what you’ve done up to this point, you can do this and we’re here to help if you want to do it.
But anyway, the bonus that we’ve put together for you, it’s a document that’s a snapshot of 50 coaches on our team, or roughly 50 coaches. So we’ve got coaches that are making $100 a week, we’ve got coaches that are making over $15,000 a week. We’ve got coaches from all different backgrounds and what this document does is it gives the name of the coach, it also gives a little bit of a testimonial or a “What has Beachbody done for you” quote. Then it shows the coach’s weekly income, what they’re making on average on a weekly basis.
Then there’s the best part, is it’s actually connected to that person’s Facebook page. So you can go through this document, you’re going to see all these different coaches and you’re able to actually click on their name and find out about them on Facebook. So really, really cool thing there and it gives you the opportunity to understand that there’s somebody out there just like you that’s doing this business. Now in order to get that document, send a text message to 38470 and then in the body of the text message just type “Beachbody”.
So again, send a text message to the number 38470 and then in the body of that, just type “Beachbody” and what we’ll do is we’ll get you connected and we’ll make sure that you get that document. The second thing I want you to do is, if you’ll go to Keithcallahan.com, you’re going to be able to get tons of information deeper than just on this podcast. We have a bunch of frequently asked questions about Beachbody, just all kinds of blogs, all kinds of information.
We also have a section called the monthly report. Within that section, for my wife and I, it tracks the very first week that we got started with Beachbody all the way up until today and it tracks what’s been going on in the business, what’s been going on in our personal life as well as focusing in on the income and how the income grew over that time and again, that’s Keithcallahan.com.
If you’re ready to get started which I pray that you are because this business has the opportunity to change your life, reach out to the coach that sent you here. If you have questions, ask them questions. If not, just let them know that you’re ready. If a specific coach didn’t send you here or if my wife or myself sent you here and you want to get in contact with us, the easiest way to do that is just send an e-mail to email@example.com.
I’ll just leave you with this one piece of parting advice. If what you’re doing in your life hasn’t gotten you to where you want to be and doesn’t have the potential to get you to where you want to be, it’s time for a change. We’d love to be that change for you and we’d love to be able to support you through that entire journey. Until next time.
