Some people even insist it is only the founding coaches who make all the money. When I hear people say that, it really confuses me and leads me to believe they really do not have an understanding of how this business works. What I think when I hear these concerns is that it all goes back to the pyramid scheme, which some people believe is Beachbody. This is a misconception of how the business actually works. In this business everyone begins at the same spot!
What is that spot? Everyone starts with zero people in their downline, zero customers and zero coaches. You know what, when I first heard that I was excited! I said to myself, “So, everyone starts at same spot? That means I have the ability to build a business as big or as small as I want!” You know what else, I wanted that to be my responsibility! I knew I had the ability to do that! Everyone starts at the same spot.
Another misconception is people think “if I sign up with a Beachbody coach, I am just going to make them money?” Absolutely not! It doesn’t work that way at all. You actually work together with the coach who sponsors you. Again, that is why it is so important that you chose the right sponsor because you work together as a team. The final point is you are responsible for your own success with Beachbody. Really, it doesn’t matter when you started, who you started with, even if you didn’t start out with a great coach, ultimately your success in this business is going to come down to what you do and how many people that you help. That is it!
That is the key to success which anyone can achieve in this business. This is not: go and find one or two people, and they take off and you make a bunch of money. This is a business, and a business that determines your success in direct proportion to the number of people that you help. Lastly, I want to share a story about a mentor of mine when he first got started in this business. He started his team about 35-40 years ago. One day, he sat in a football stadium filled with people. They were having their annual event to recognize top leaders, and the stadium was so full, he had to sit way up in the bleachers. That moment, he made a decision that, this time next year, he was going to be down on that stage in that football stadium, being recognized as a top leader. So was he one of the first people in? No!
He worked so hard in this business that, you know what, next year he is sitting down on stage being recognized as one of the top people in this company. He went on to have an amazing career with the company, worked with them for 30 years, and retired a successful businessman. He made that choice! It doesn’t matter when you come in. Every Beachbody coach has two dates in this business: their sign up date and the date that they actually start working the business.
Everyone begins at the exact same spot! I remember when I first got started in this business, and I won’t name names, but this coach was a lot higher up than I was, and I remember looking at them and they had been coaching for four or five years, they were moving their family across the country, they had beautiful cars, they were full time Beachbody coaches – they were living the life! I said to myself “man, what would it be like if I could live that kind of life?” and what do you know, three and a half years later, not only were we able to achieve that but we have been able to surpass where they are in the business. So, it really is up to you and what you personally create that will determine your level of success within this business. It is never too late!
This isn’t a business where you are going around and recruiting hundreds of people. You are helping a select few and teaching them to do the same. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below.
