There's nothing special or extraordinary about me. In the words of John Mellencamp, I'm just a small town girl...literally. Grew up in a town of 1200 with a cornfield in my back yard. There wasn't a stop light in our town and there still isn't one. My high school graduating class had 96 people, all of whom I knew by name. After graduation, I attended a midsize Midwestern university, was very involved on campus and with my sorority. Graduated from there with an English degree and teacher certification...and taught my first year at my high school.
My husband and I luckily found each other fairly young, married, started careers, started a family.
I am, in every sense of the word, that girl next door. A small town kid with big time dreams and aspirations.
Still, never in a million years did I have "become a master trainer", "be in fitness videos", "do live TV", or even "share my story on stage in Las Vegas in front of 8000 people" on my life bucket list.
All my life, my parents told me I could anything I set my mind to doing. I was then blessed to find mentors and friends as an adult that pushed me to see more potential and possibility that I ever thought of - eternal thanks, Chalene Johnson Christine Dwyer Candringa! Productions.
Why do I share this today?? Because each Thursday, I am reminded that ANYTHING is possible. Each Thursday, I am reminded that even small town girls with cornfields in their backyards can grow up and meet amazing people. That it doesn't take somebody extraordinary to DO something extraordinary. I am reminded that if there is a tiny voice in your head that says "you can do more" or "maybe I want to do something else with my life" or "I've got big dreams"....then you should follow that voice. You should take that first step.
Taking a huge leap into the fitness industry changed my life. Listening to someone suggest that I teach fitness classes - and then doing it! changed my life. Becoming a Team Beachbody Coach changed my life. Building an incredible team has changed and continues to change my life. There is no other way to say it. Listening to that small voice inside my head, following my heart, becoming a coach -> Changed. My. Life.
Cool part is....you can do it too. If a girl with a cornfield in her backyard can do it, you can too. I have been there. I've walked the path, had the struggles, dealt with the challenges. I will walk with you every step of the way, helping you realize your amazing potential. We are in this together. Why? Because I believe you can.
