Team Retreat in Destin – RECAP

2016-09-17-12-50-09

I have just returned home after a 5 day trip for our Team’s Retreat in Destin Florida and I am filled with so many emotions!!!

So many amazing takeaways from this trip and while I want to run, put my blinders on and get to work, I also need to take a moment to reflect on this incredible getaway!!!

 

I have hosted my own for my team and this is the second retreat I have attended with my upline sponsor coach and I cannot say enough POSITIVE things about the after math of attending something like this!

2016-09-17-08-51-45

The theme was

TO BE A PINEAPPLE.

To stand tall

Wear a crown

&

Be sweet on the inside!!!

We had our team there filling one house on the Beach and together with the other Dream Team Coaches – we filled 5 mansions in Destin Florida with 10+ Elite coaches in the network led by our fearless leader, the #1 Coach in all of Beachbody.

2016-09-15-08-09-10

There were corporate led trainings, team led trainings, small group breakouts, parties, fun, dancing, dinners, group workouts, late night chat sessions, and more!

You could say it was a bit of a powerhouse event!

I’ve heard so many women say they don’t have girlfriends and they get along better with men and that is sad to me, because when confident, happy, secure women come together in friendship, amazing things happen!!!

I’ll admit I got a bit anxious leading up to the event. I mean 14 girls in one house – PLUS – over 100 girls coming together for games and trainings…its a lot to take in!!!

But I know the importance of events.

And as expected, I walked away from this event with new friendships, stronger bonds, and perhaps a 6 pack in the making from all the laughter!

I want to share a bit with you all so you can understand that this wasn’t just an opportunity to unplug and soak up some rays…but rather an opportunity TO GROW our businesses, our confidence, and improve the overall quality of our LIVES!

I arrived on Wednesday evening and Thursday kicked off our Team’s trip!

We all watched the sunrise together

Then naturally we took things to beach to get started!

We got sweaty, had some fun, then got to the beach!

This was our one FREE day…and I took full advantage of it!

Miracle Morning

I’ve been preparing for my upcoming Miracle Morning accountability group and this was the perfect setting to dive in and get to practicing what I was about to be preaching!!!

Friday night we got together with the other 5 houses and together, 125 Beachbody Leaders strong, we competed in the BEACH OLYMPICS!

I’m not sure I ever laughed so hard!

From crab crawls in the sand, to wheelbarrow races, to 3-legged races, to running with a pineapple on my head – this was hands down one of the most fun nights of my LIFE!

Our team may not have one the trophy but we did win with the most laughs!!! #TeamPurple rocked it for sure!

Saturday it was time to Learn!!! From 9-5 we heard from some of the top leaders at Corporate and the top leaders in the company.

From social media trainings, to recruiting, to creating independent leaders, to creating a powerful vision, to leading with a PURPOSE, to learning how to JUST BE YOU and lead from the heart with the goals and impact you have on others in the heart of what we do!

Things slowed down as we wrapped up our training session, regrouped, then headed out for margaritas and tacos! Because what group of women doesn’t like margaritas and tacos?!?!

2016-09-17-18-20-33

There were many moments of reflection and many moments where I just had to stop and pinch myself.

This is my life.

This is my career.

These are the women and people I CHOOSE to spend my time with.

Who lift me up

And EMPOWER me to be the best mom, friend, wife, coach, sister and daughter possible!

2016-09-16-16-58-07

The trip was perfect.
I am grateful for the generosity of my coach and grateful for the team bonding we all enjoyed!

I know I say this a LOT.

But its true.

This career. this opportunity, has BLESSED me more ways than I ever imagined!

2016-09-18-07-36-41

No one tells you when you buy a challenge pack looking to lose a few pounds that you may just stumble upon one of the greatest career opportunities out there!

I am grateful and I am blessed and I want to share this opportunity with others!
If you see yourself in these pictures above – if you’re reading this thinking – this is ME or THIS COULD BE ME – or I WANT THIS TO BE ME let me share more with you!

Taking that LEAP OF FAITH is where it all starts!

I can’t believe we are already one day in!

My hubby and I, a few of our besties and 3,000 other coaches are enjoying a trip we of a lifetime aboard the Oasis of the Sea – one of the largest ships to sail the ocean waters and guess what – it was totally FREE!

Yup – earned by helping others reach their goals as well as get started with their own health & fitness businesses.

Pretty darn cool to be part of an organization that rewards its team for well, simply doing what we are here to do!
Its crazy to think and rewind for a bit…

2 years ago I was a BRAND new coach and I watched other leaders in the  company head off on the Success Club cruise in awe thinking – I can do this too!!!

I want to do this!

Let’s do this!!!

It was the thought – to be able to earn a vacation for my family – that helped propel me to just give it a try!

To try this entrepreneur – momboss life and see what happened!

And you know what?!?!

The consistency has paid off!

Through helping at least 3 people every single month in 2014 I was able to earn a trip to Cancun last spring and by continuing to do so throughout 2015 – I have now earned this cruise! 

just a mom that turned her excuses into her reasons

There’s a heck of a lot more to this coaching gig than the free trips but my goodness are they an amazing way to celebrate the lives we are able to change each and every day!!!

I will be sharing my adventure on my Business Page Maegan Blinka – Living a Life of Family, Fun and Fitness and on my IG: maeganblinka

I am no different than you.

I joined a challenge group to help myself. To build my self esteem, confidence, energy levels and be happy again with myself.

And while I lost a few pounds it was what I gained that made the biggest impact in my life!

Behind the Challenge groups and sweaty selfies

WHEW!

2016-01-23 11.19.08

My head is truly spinning and I am sitting here today – after a whirlwind of a weekend – with a grateful heart that I was invited into a life-changing opportunity nearly 2 years ago!

You see 2 years ago I had a really good life.

I was a SAHM to a toddler and a newborn, I had an amazing husband, we lived in a beautiful home and I was HAPPY.

I thought I had it all but then I found that I was missing something in my life. Something bigger. Something powerful. Something that allows ME to empower, inspire, support and something that allowed me to find my PASSION.

Something that took this really good life I had and it made it GREAT!

2016-01-21 08.31.06

I became a Beachbody Coach!

I had success in a challenge group, I wanted to pay it forward to help others and in time – through CONSISTENT hard work, daily dedication and discipline I grew a BUSINESS.

Now I know some people may see my daily sweaty selfies after my 5:00am workout in my basement and don’t quite get it – but I wanted to take this opportunity to share there is so much more to it!

I shared my story, my journey and brought others along for the ride. Something that I began doing out of joy provided me with an outlet to grow a very successful business. And after finishing the year in the top 0.05% of the ENTIRE network – out of 400,000K other coaches – I earned an invitation to the 2016 New Leaders Conference in Los Angeles – and away I went!

2016-01-21 13.01.35

We had the opportunity to tour the Corporate Headquarters and it really helped me realize how much Team Beachbody leads from the front with integrity and class. The culture was amazing not to mention the impressive gym and unlimited shakeo bar offered to its employees! The mission to end the trend of obesity and to help others lead healthy and fulfilling lives starts at the top and I was honored to be able to see it all first hand!

2016-01-21 17.15.11

Now it wasn’t ALLLLLL fun and games… we were there to learn too! To hear from some of the absolute BEST in the company and get tips and ideas and inspiration and really see the potential of this company. I am not a typical note taker but I couldn’t stop writing things down!!! I am so very blessed to come from the 2X #1 Coach in the company Melanie Mitro, and she was right there with us sharing and learning and inspiring us with ideas and in the end – just having FUN!

2016-01-21 16.37.13

In addition to some pretty darn AMAZING training sessions from both top coaches in the network and the corporate team we also had a chance to get a sneak peek into Tony Horton’s upcoming program – 22 Minute HARD CORPS.

2016-01-22 09.52.08

I come from a long line of military in my family and Tony’s heart and passion behind this program and his dedication to he troops is unreal. I love the convenience of my at home workouts and being able to do it all from my basement while my littles sleep but NOTHING can compare to the personal instruction of Tony Horton himself. I don’t think I have ever pushed myself SO hard! I was honored to have this experience and cannot wait to help others get started with their life style changes!!!

With the biggest snowstorm in years my flight back to the east coast got cancelled. And as bummed as I was it ended up being a blessing in disguise!

A few coaches – we didn’t really know each other – got together and we hiked up Runyon Canyon to see the Hollywood sign.

2016-01-23 08.09.20

The views were breathtaking and the networking was priceless.

The only thing that would have made this trip better is to have had some of my OWN team members there WITH ME!

2016-01-22 17.57.16

This was a one-time invite deal. B

ut I have set a goal. NEXT YEAR – my team will still be represented and I will have at least 4 of my girls in LA to experience the opportunity and to be inspired just like I was. To learn from the top just like I did and to experience the full package deal and grow as LEADERS of their own teams too!

Taking the road less traveled can be scary.

I was a prior audit manager with my CPA license when I began this journey as a coach. I never imagined the possibilities of the business but once I took that LEAP I have never looked back.

Are you ready to JUMP?

Cash for Christmas

family circle join me

Ok I need to get real, open, and honest for a minute – so please hear me out:

This past week I received a weekly paycheck equivalent to my PRIOR audit manager – semi-MONTHLY salary.

And it really just made me THINK…

It made me think of a lot of things, reflect, fill myself with gratitude and truly realize what a blessing it was the day I decided to take the road less traveled and become my own BOSS!

You see, through this whole thought process, I was reminded of the Christmas right after we became a family of four. Earlier that year we made the decision that I would leave my full time career to be a full time stay at home mom. And while hard to admit – I had a hard time finding the blessings…the combo of sleepless nights, little adult interaction and a shrinking savings left me STRESSED on a regular basis let alone the additional expenses of the holidays.

I wanted to do the things I used to do and give to those causes I used to give to but I couldn’t. We simply couldn’t. We kept the holidays small and I felt like I was going backwards in life.

Fast forward 2 years and 18 months into my business and I have been able to build more than a full time income working part time hours from my home – in the early morning hours before my kids woke up and late at night after they went to bed…and the consistency paid off, the results compounded and now I am living my life by DESIGN as a result of the work I have put it day after day and week after week and month after month!!!

Coaching is not all about the money for me, but I would be lying if I said it didn’t help ease the stresses and allow us to live the life we dream of. A life where I am able to help support my family while still raising my kiddos. I believe I have the best of both worlds and I want others to know and realize they can do this too!

I know sometimes its inevitable that you will need to get a part time job through the holidays but that doesn’t mean you have to leave your home!!
Yesterday I got an email from Kohls stating that they were now “hiring holiday help”
I walked into Target and saw the sign – NOW HIRING!
I read a stat that 1 in 5 people plan to get a 2nd job to afford the holidays and after polling 2,200 people, 45% of them said they would struggle to afford gifts this year.
While the Holidays are supposed to be one of the happiest times of the year I know first hand that they can cause a LOT of STRESS!!!

And I have decided that this year I want to help others benefit from this amazing opportunity that my family has been blessed with!

Cash for Christmas dark edges

I am looking for 5 people who would like to earn some Cash For Christmas!

Follow your dreams

I’ve been home from Cancun for 4 days now and I am finally feeling like I am getting back to my routine.

The theme in my mind the past few weeks has really been DREAM! I feel like I am living a DREAM in a DREAM world but in reality this is my life! Perfect? Not even close…but fabulous in deed and I know I am exactly where I need to be!

2015-04-16 22.39.59

Its just still a bit surreal to me how I even got to where I am today, how a year ago I was just hanging out with my kiddos on a daily basis, just making ends meet each month and going with the basics and while happy, I wanted more. I now know I was meant for something greater!!! Today, I’m living a much more fulfilling life, still home with my kiddos but was able to spend 5 days at an all-inclusive trip in Cancun Mexico which was EARNED simply by helping other people get healthier and helping other people chase their dreams too!

Mexico Pan picture

Ok – maybe “simply” is a bit of an understatement, but honestly – this “job” as a Beachbody Coach has filled my life with more blessings than I could have ever imagined and I am excited to share more about my trip!!!

After some back and forth about whether or not to take our kiddos with us on we decided Mexico wasn’t the best place for an almost 2 year old and almost 4 year old – so we switched gears and made it a Mommy and daddy only trip!!! Our first solo getaway since our Honeymoon and let me say – we enjoyed every minute of it!!!

2015-04-15 06.08.08

My husband has been my BIGGEST supporter since Day 1 and I really wanted to thank him for the sacrifices he makes so that I can invest time in my challengers, my coaches and my growing team! This trip was just about him as much as it was for me!!!

Don’t get me wrong – we still enjoyed the time with our friends and team mates at the pool…

2015-04-17 12.23.53 2015-04-17 07.28.08

The parties were amazing

2015-04-16 17.11.10

2015-04-17 23.51.10

We worked out with the trainers

2015-04-18 10.54.12

We took fun goofy team pictures

 2015-04-17 12.01.18

We enjoyed Shakeology galore

2015-04-17 08.37.03

And I even managed to snag a morning run in beachside and a selfie with Autumn Calabrese, miss 21-day fix herself2015-04-16 10.15.25

I also think Kyle got pretty good with the selfie action!!!

2015-04-15 19.47.51 2015-04-16 17.07.48

But even with all the parties and fun it was the reason behind it all…the reason I have had the success I had is because people have put their trust in me as their COACH – to help them, guide them and teach them ways to eat cleaner, exercise regularly, stick to a program and be accountable, especially when life throws those curve balls your way!!! I never realized the potential of this “business” when I first signed up as a coach “in hopes to make enough money to cover my monthly Shakoelogy” but I am forever grateful that I made the decision, took the leap, and made this a true BUSINESS that is allowing me financial freedom, travel and simply being surrounded by some of the most uplifting positive people I know!

2015-04-19 09.55.59

So people keep asking me…HOW did you earn this trip? and CAN I earn a TRIP like this TOO???

How? I briefly mentioned it above – but in a nut shell…HELPING OTHERS! Helping 3-5 people each month get started on their health and fitness journey! Helping them pick a workout program that is going to help them get results and reach THEIR goals and helping others make changes in their nutrition…. to learn to FUEL their bodies with the proper foods and feel their absolute best…can earn you Success Club points. Doing this consistently – each month – all year – will EARN you the trip! Easy? NO! Worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!!!

2015-04-15 16.24.14

And YES!!! You can earn this too!!! I was a brand new coach this time last year. I watched my coach and the other coaches go on the 2014 Success Club trip and thought to myself…wow – I would love to be able to do this – what an opportunity! And through hard work, pushing my fears of rejection aside and sticking with a never give up attitude I was able to get off the waitlist and earn the trip not only for myself but for me and my husband!!!

2015-04-19 09.49.47

Will you be joining me next year????

While on this trip, I started and finished the book GIRLBOSS which was amazing by the way, and I then started a new book “You’re made for a God-Sized Dream” by Holley Gerth – and let me just say – this book is well worth your time! It will open doors and open your eyes to things you never saw before! Follow your dreams! You are made for big things – big dreams will come true if you’re willing to pursue them!!!

2015-04-19 09.51.19

I am running a sneak peak into Coaching group that will share tidbits of the Coaching Opportunity and I want to open it up to YOU! Sit, listen and see if this is an opportunity you’re ready to take advantage of!!! My May Coach apprenticeship will begin May 4th and I will mentor you and help you learn everything you need to do and apply it to your own business!!!
