Today was a big day for my business. Thursdays are paydays in the Beachbody world (once a week – woot!), and I hit a big benchmark today. I had an amount in my mind that I considered a full-time income. And I reached that today – almost exactly 15 months to the day after I started this journey. Zero to full-time income. In very part-time hours. It’s a little surreal looking at it, honestly. In the best possible way.
Talking about money makes a lot of people uncomfortable. It used to make me VERY uncomfortable. But I don’t see money now the same way that I did then. It’s not about status or judgement, and it doesn’t define anything about me or my life. What it represents to me now is FREEDOM. I have a job that I love that is MOBILE. I can live anywhere. We can travel anywhere at any time (well…as long as school schedules allow…). And the beautiful thing about the income, is that it is never static. If I continue growing as a coach and a leader, the income follows me. For someone who likes to work hard and be fairly rewarded, this has been the most exciting career ever. I got a message from one of my coaches today, saying that she is getting to cut back from working 3 days a week at her “day job”, to working 2 days a week now – all because of her Beachbody paycheck. Watching other people’s lives change for the better is almost more fun that watching my own life change.
Matt and I are making plans we would never have dreamed about two years ago. We used to go round and round with our plans for the future. How to improve our situation….make our lives a little easier or more fun. We kept hitting a wall. Not anymore. We have options, and lots of them. I can’t tell you what a relief that is! And so, today we get to take a deep breath, and celebrate. And then get back to work. :) (cause I LOVE it!!)
