And so many more MOMENTS…came together to make up a recent 5-day trip I took to Orlando. It was a trip for me to be with my coach – the one that shared her life so graciously on social media and allowed ME to discover THIS life changing opportunity – and a trip for me to be with my leaders as well – to thank them and spoil them and teach them so that one day they are doing the same for their teams!

It was a TEAM retreat for the record books no doubt…but WHY?

Why are these things SO KEY and such a HUGE driver for me to host and my team to attend?

As coaches we have the opportunity to build an EMPIRE without ever leaving home.

A DREAM come true to this former, stay at home mom who needed to find herself after babies!

And whether you have little ones and a desire to be home with them or simply a desire to travel more or work on your own terms or simply live beyond the nontraditional 9-5 this business has the ability to be a BLESSING beyond words.

Sometimes building a business behind a computer screen can be a little lonley and you the peer to peer interaction is what you need to jazz it up.

We have larger events like Summit and the Success Club trips that allow us to come together and quarterly Super Saturdays to see  local area coaches but the annual team RETREAT allows a time to be together as ONE TEAM UNITED and I truly cannot put into words the IMPACT this even has on my business.

I remember watching my coach go on her team retreat before I started thinking REALLY – that many girls in one place who are VOLUNTARILY spending the weekend together?!?!

I didn’t get…until I became a part of it. The unity. The community. THE FAMILY.

It never is about comparison and there are no secrets.  We are simply EMPOWERING one another to be the best mom/wife/friend/sister and coach all rolled into one. We share tips and ideas, life events and stories and motivation one another on all aspects of the business and just plain old LIFE!

I have learned that when you pour into yourself for a little bit you then have the ability to POUR MORE into others and this trip while seemed like it came at the most crazy time in my life – I now realize it came at the time I – WE – needed it most.

I don’t know many jobs – careers – that are built upon a CULTURE that encourages other women to empower other women and provides an environment for you to SIMPLY BE YOU and your income is a direct result of the IMPACT you make but my goodness I sure am glad I found it!

But this I ensure you –

Behind the stock pile of selfies, and group photo shots, and pretty meals, and smiles and laughs…is WORK.
We work HARD because our work matters.

We work HARD because we KNOW we have something SPECIAL.

We work HARD because every time we SHARE what we do we have the opportunity to pay it forward and help others the same way this business has blessed us.

I got started as a coach because I NEEDED it emotionally AND physically and I knew there HAD to be other women suffering the way I was and I held that power in my hand to help them. And here I stand today not just doing that – but helping OTHER build their empires too.

I can’t believe its been TWO weeks already!!! I’ve started and stopped this blog post several times now with the crazy whirlwind of my life but I am finally sitting down to digest exactly what all happened that week…a week that had such a profound impact on my life – on my coaching business – and on my team.

Its pretty cool what can happen when you surround yourself with 25,000 other positive people who simply lift you HIGHER!

I guess I should start by sharing what exactly is COACH SUMMIT.
Beachbody’s Coach Summit is an annual event where coaches get together to learn and inspire one another, to build on team relationships, workout and meet the celebrity trainers, to celebrate the prior years accomplishments and recognize those who have had their lives so greatly impacted by Team Beachbody!

Just being around some of the best people in this company pushes me and fuels that fire and desire to be at that Elite party again next year!!! Needless to say it was a fun night!!!
But its not all about the fun – there’s some learning in there too!!!
Our Thursday started with a large Dream Team training.
My team is part of the #1 team in all of Beachbody, the Dream Team, and we hosted a Recipe for Success training program on Thursday morning. Talk about a power packed schedule. Two top 10 Elite Coaches and 6 additional Elite coaches sharing THEIR stories, THEIR tips for success and their struggles to help and inspire more to do more!!! I don’t think anyone left that training without a burning desire to Go. Do. MORE!

2015-07-17 08.25.19That evening was also the opening ceremonies which included recognition of a few levels including new 4-star Diamond coaches…ME! Walking across that stage seeing my name on the board – hearing my team mates cheering for me along wit 25,00o other coaches was so surreal.
It is also an opportunity to share and launch new products, programs and technology advances and let’s just say this year was jam packed!
New Programs & New Products included:

Ok ok – perhaps its information overload – but let’s just say there’s lots to look forward to!!!
Friday kicked off the training sessions and a very special moment – the Celebrity photo Ops.
I earned this photo session based on the number of people I was able to help towards their health & fitness goals in the month of May and I was beyond excited to to snag a hot spot next to Chalene Johnson, Sagi Kalev and the man behind the hottest new program CIZE – Shaun T!

Great times with great friends. Making memories, building our businesses, sharing our tips and ideas and learning from each other. Lifting one another UP and empowering each other.
Now we wouldn’t be at a Beachbody event without a large group workout!!!

The streets of Nashville were shut down and about 20K coaches gathered on Broadway to SWEAT – sweat for something bigger – those who couldn’t and for one another!!!
And as I take a step back and look I realize that making this short and sweet totally didn’t happen!!! Oops! 🙂
———————————————————————–
All in all, this trip was absolutely INCREDIBLE – LIFE-CHANGING!
Sometimes I still have to stop and just thank God for this opportunity!
I had dreams of being a big successful executive in a big tall office building in a big city making big bucks.
Then…
I became a mom.
And all I wanted was to be at home with THEM.
But my desire to contribute to my family never left.
This opportunity has given me what I believe is the best of both worlds and I cannot imagine how different my life would be today if I hadn’t taken the leap to become a coach myself!
