7 years in the making
Back in 2015 my incredible team of Beachbody coaches achieved a big goal, one we had worked 7 years to achieve.
Some might ask why this goal didn't happen sooner.
Simple answer? We weren't ready.
The Turning Point
The turning point in my business, in ME, came at the end of 2014, something magical started to happen. A program came into my life that changed everything - Insanity Max30. I got very uncomfortable and asked someone for personal mentorship. The right people joined our team. Veteran coaches stepped up and into leadership. Although we've always been a pretty tight team, the bond grew stronger and we saw our goal with clarity. The goal was so bright and the pull was so strong and we moved together as one toward that goal. Our language became WHEN we achieve our goal, not "If".
15 is the magic number
On April 15th, 2015, the 15th week of the year, we became a SuperStar Diamond Team, also known as a 15 Star Diamond Team - this is a big deal in Beachbody world.
In September of that year, I made good on the promise I made years ago....that when we accomplished that goal, we were going to Disney. (Cue the appropriately timed Super Bowl commercial right here )
That was then, this is now
Last week, I had some of my newer coaches over for lunch...these #fiercefemale coaches who have literally changed the energy on our team with their work ethic and freaking GET IT DONE attitude.
Need something accomplished? Cool. It's handled. They handle it. They just figure it out and their drive has re-energized everyone. They blow my mind on the daily.
After lunch at my house, they all got up, and I assumed we were taking a group picture. Nope. THEY were taking a group shot. WITH their bracelets. In a circle. None of them had EVER seen the first picture above from 2015 on our first Disney trip with our team bracelets.
I stood off to the side with my good friend and fellow coach, April Kever, and watched this happen while my daughter, Josie, took their picture, and I tried really hard not to cry. Without EVER seeing the picture that was taken in 2015, these newer coaches recreated it on their own, in my kitchen.
My vow for 2018
Every morning when I get up, I write down 3 goals that I am driven to accomplish with my team.
Watching these newer coaches recreate that picture...CREATE new energy on our team....well, to me it all means this:
Because so much of team growth relies on personal leadership, I vow to work hard every day to be the leader this absolutely AMAZING team deserves. It will be a continual process, because there's never an end game to getting better. But when we KNOW better, we must DO better. And every day, my goal is to be just a little bit better than the day before, in SOME way.
I can see our goals. The team can see our goals.
They are so bright, so clear, so within our reach.
And we are ready.
It is time.
We are ready to create something stunningly remarkably amazing together..and you can be part of our future.

9 years ago, my Beachbody team started at my kitchen table in Carmel, Indiana. We've grown to thousands of incredible coaches all across the United States and Canada, and SOON we will expand across the pond to the United Kingdom. Who would have thought that one small decision years ago would have such an amazing ripple affect across my life?
