First of all, it seems impossible that it's already been more than a month since my last blog post! I am sorry for my radio silence and for leaving you hanging. Not only have I been incredibly busy, but I've also been working out some life stuff, as you'll see in this post.
I'm going to make the assumption that most of you know about me signing up as a Beachbody coach back in October. Even if we're not connected on Facebook or Instagram, I've also been writing about it pretty regularly on this blog, so I'll skip that part of the story.
As you probably know, coaching was a big part of my life for six months. What most of you don't know is that I have recently made the decision to stop coaching. I'll say upfront that there is nothing wrong with being a Beachbody coach, so I have nothing bad to say about it. In fact, I met some of the strongest and most dedicated women I know through my coaching team, so I'd never have a bad thing to say about it.
In fact, coaching is an amazing opportunity. You are given the chance to build your own business from the ground up. You can literally make coaching into anything you want it to be, whether it's a small part-time business or a million dollar empire. Honestly, I didn't sign up to be a coach in order to make any extra money. Before signing up I was missing passion and purpose in my life, so coaching gave me the opportunity to wake up in the morning and have a reason to get out of bed.
If coaching is so amazing, you might ask why I stopped. The short answer is that I don't know. The complicated answer is that it just wasn't the right path for me to take at this point in my life. Being a coach kept me super busy, which is one of the reasons why I decided to stop. I'm an all-or-nothing kind of person, so I couldn't find a happy medium where I gave a small percentage of my time and attention to my business. I was working every free minute I had, usually for at least 12 hours a day. It got to the point where I started to resent being a coach because I was putting so much into it and not getting enough out for it to be worth it to me.
Ultimately, being a Beachbody coach was an amazing experience and I am truly glad I did it. I wouldn't even rule out the idea of doing it again in the future. But for now, it's not the right time for me to be a coach or run my own business. Actually, there are some potential life changes that could come up in my near future, so I will keep you updated as I find out what is going to happen. As always, stay tuned for more!
