To think I can build a business on my phone 📲. I don't need a store front 🏬, I don't need a loan 💰 ,and I don't need set hours ⏰! What I need is wifi!
When I began coaching I thought in order to build a truly successful business you needed to have a large following, already know a lot about health and fitness, and have a lot of time on your side! Here I was working full time as a Registered Dental Hygienist, mom to a 2 year old at that time, and struggling to fit in a workout 3 days a week!
Our budget then was tight 😬because well having is expensive! Let's talk about $500+ a month for just childcare and that was considered cheap! Stress of income was on me and the feeling of being unfulfilled at my day job was setting in on me. I worked for a wonderful dental company, blessed with a work family I loved 🤗, but something was missing 🤔! I felt I had to take a chance! A chance on doing something that could ignite that flame 🔥 in me again! I turned to fitness! I thought about several options, and all them lead me to one thought, I'm not willing to give up my time with my family! I needed something that allowed me more flexibility!
At that exact time that I was having these emotions 😭 run through me I had also seen a post from my friend, and now sponsor, Brooke! She talked about training, and lord 🙏🏼 knows I knew nothing about coaching at that time, and was going to need that! She talked about wanting a go getter, someone that didn't make excuses, and was willing to work hard! I knew that I had the drive to do this, but what I needed was 1 guidance and 2 flexibility! When she told me how she was building her business while still working full-time hours as an RDH 😷too, I thought I can so do that 🙌🏼
It didn't take a lot of convincing to see that this was going to be something that would fit my lifestyle, and met my standards for getting healthy the right way! I jumped on board over 5 years ago and haven't looked back!
So when someone tells me, “I don't want to do something I'm tied to my phone."
I say, “cool, then are you ok with being tied to your job for the rest of your life?”
Just some food for thought 🤷
