That's just about all I can say about the last two days.
These ladies and I worked hard to achieve a big goal this year, the only team in Indiana to do so, and one of only 30 in Team Beachbody as well.
So I decided we needed to celebrate! Spa time, amazing food, PiYo live outside by the ocean with Michele Park, fabulous conversation, and Disneyland - ending with the incredible water show that reminded us "if you can dream it, you can do it". I knew what I hoped would happen these last two days....but what happened far exceeded that!
Yes, we talked business. We talked leadership. We talked strategy. We talked best practices. But mostly, we just talked. We learned about each other women, not just coaches. And I know that even though we were celebrating what we had accomplished, we all came away re-inspired to do and be more. Without doing "training", without having anything official...just by being around each other and sharing and laughing and talking and learning.
It was amazing, truly memorable, and a complete honor to celebrate them. Thank you to my very first coach, Ophelia Conquet, for reminding me of what I said all those years ago...what an honor it was to make good on that promise.
How blessed are we that this team we get to create is made up of people we'd hang out with any way? How lucky are we that our colleagues inspire us to be better people, not just better coaches?
These past two days truly reminded me why I love this business so much, in so many ways. There aren't many people on this planet with whom you can watchan amazing water show at Disneyland and cry because the message in the show hits you right in the heart, and reflects what you are thinking and feeling. smile emoticon That kind of stuff is makes us this business so special...frankly, I think it's what makes our team so special. These coaches and I....we've been in this together for a long time....there's strength in that...but most importantly, there's power in knowing we are creating and building something together that's changing a lot of lives.
As our team grows, I look forward to doing MORE of these trips to celebrate and renew. After all, it's about time.
