Smart Start: New Coaching Training Accelerated

I’m so grateful for… 

-- the incredible outpouring of support 
-- being surrounded by such caring people. Even though we may be hundreds of miles apart… I feel the love heart emoticon 
-- the freedom to stay at home & grieve for my sweet Sydney
-- a business & a team that has grown one heck of a residual income so I can spend as much time as needed with my little family 
-- the reminder that life is short, precious and no moment should be taken for granted
-- it’s ok to embrace all of your memories...even the sad ones {until I'm ready to let them go}
-- the reminder that it’s OK to smile, have fun and enjoy life even though we're still hurting.
-- the reminder that everything happens for a reason & it’s all going to be okay

I did a lot of thinking today… And the thought that kept popping back into my head was…I am so grateful to have Beachbody and this opportunity. 
So grateful I was able to create a future with HOPE, stability, support, FREEDOM...and have been encouraged to dive into my personal development so I can handle new challenges & emotionally devastating situations. 

I am a college dropout who was overworked and underpaid- barely making ends meet. Being a coach not only helped me get my head above water...but it helped me stay accountable to my fitness goals, build a team of AMAZING women & men, and create financial freedom heart emoticon 

While I would LOVE to tell you becoming a coach lands you {and your loved ones} in a safety bubble where rainbows shoot out of your booty… that, unfortunately, isn't the case. I also wish I could tell you time machines exist...

Life happens. And while I can't put my family in a big plastic bubble… Beachbody {and this community} is my safety net heart emoticon 

Besides helping you find a fun & easy balance to working out and eating healthier, I’m here to remind you that it's okay to DREAM BIG and enjoy the little things in life. Some days can be a little bumpy, but we’ll get through those days together. I appreciate you guys helping me get through my worst day ever. It’s not often that the WORST CASE SCENARIO happens… but it’s comforting to know that Jay & all of you have my back. heart emoticon 

With all of that being said…. I’m ready to open my heart (and my Smart Start New Coach Training group) to 10 women who are:

-- Coachable
-- Ready & motivated to make changes & create freedom for their family
-- Excited to help, support & encourage others
-- Serious about wanting to create more income for their family
-- Animal lover heart emoticon who understands if get sad about my sweet Sydney frown emoticon

((2 out of the 10 spots are spoken for.))

If you are selected, I will mentor you and teach you how to grow a full time income while helping people reach their fitness goals. 
I've developed this training alongside some of the TOP coaches in this business and will pass on everything I’ve done to build success so you have the BEST opportunity. 

I would love nothing more than to pay it forward, welcome you onto my team and into my family (we are a tight knit community) and help you create freedom and security for your future. (And quite frankly I welcome the distraction)

To Apply:

((NOTE: Not accepting current coaches as this time. I appreciate your understanding! xo ))

Dream Big! Live More! Inspire the Next! xo

Thank you for all of the support!

I decided today I need to get up, get dressed, and at least leave my room (especially after I answered the door twice in my bathrobe ).
Still feeling very heartbroken... and I swear I keep hearing her in the house... BUT I wanted to thank you for your support. It truly is helping ease the pain. Grief is so weird... it comes & goes in big waves frown emoticon
I hadn't intended on posting a crying selfie... but really this is as good as it's going to get.. 
A HUGE thank you to the Stay family this stunning arrangement, the beautiful white & pink roses from Kaelyn Kociemba (that remind me so much of her) and the flowers from Michelle 
I gathered them for a pic... but I placed them around in the house where she used to lay/sleep heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon

Missing our Sydney girl

 It just doesn't feel real my brain can't fathom that all we found left of her is a couple tufts of hair
No body to bury ... No goodbyes... 
So heartbroken 
Thank you for all of your kind words It feels like there is a big hole in my heart & my eyes are swollen beyond belief...but we are taking comfort in each other and all of the memories we have

RIP Sydney

It is with indescribable pain & sadness that we share the loss of our baby, sweet Sydney.
We are beyond heartbroken at her unexpected & tragic death. She was such a lovable, social and cuddly baby. She was born to a feral cat on the street- I happily took her in and we bonded instantly.
She's been with me through 3 moves... learned to love 2 pups... and has been such a special part of the family.
While I only had 6 short years with her, she will always be in my heart heart emoticon
The loss of any pet is heartbreaking... but with her death being so abrupt...feels like a punch in the gut.
Kitty parents.. PLEASE keep your babies safe indoors... especially if there is wildlife nearby. (In our case, there is a pack of wild coyotes nearby that got to her frown emoticon frown emoticon frown emoticon )
heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon
RIP my sweet baby fro

Thank you for all of your kind words It feels like there is a big hole in my heart & my eyes are swollen beyond belief...but we are taking comfort in each other and all of the memories we have with our sweet Sydneywn emoticon

girlboss Dynasty: Advancing to EMERALD Coach

Hey # girlboss Dynasty! 

NEWBIES start here:
Let's talk about your first MAJOR milestone in your business.
Advancing to EMERALD coach!

Simply put... Emerald means... YOU + TWO (personally sponsored coaches).

WHY aim for Emerald? 
It opens more income opportunities for you, it means you are actively helping people reach their goals, you start to take advantage of the network marketing business model, and you start to treat this business MORE like a business... which means it will start to PAY like a business a lot sooner.

You might not know exactly what coaching is...or what you're supposed to be doing quite yet LOL (And that's totally OK and normal) ...BUT... you have PASSION, fire, and you trusted your gut enough to take the leap of faith and sign up yourself.

SHARE your story - why you signed up. Genuinely share how you feel the accountability/discount/income/support of being a coach will help the people you know.

You have your sponsor and the team to help you navigate conversations, explain the business and get YOUR coaches started on the right foot to reach their goals.

Our team goal this month is to help YOU cross that Emerald finish line! I know together, we can do it!


1). I recommend you start by simply making a list of the people you feel would benefit from it, who love Shakeology, who are participating in your challenge group and cheering others on, who are ready to commit to their fitness goals, or even the people who trust you enough to help you and try Shakeology (mom, spouse, friends).

Try to come up with at least 10 names (use the Memory Jogger below- Trust me, its super helpful!) Listen to this National Wakeup call for some surefire ways to get to Emerald!
Achieving Emerald NWC

 PROCLAIM it - Believe it’s already complete and you will complete it.
― "I advanced to Emerald by March 31st!"

3.) This video might help to explain some things about being an Emerald and the benefits that come along with it!
Benefits of Emerald

If you are EMERALD +: Please share how it has benefited you (confidence/income/fun) AND how you signed up your first two!)

Mistakes: The Most Valuable Thing You Can Make

 In school, I was the kid that wouldn't raise her hand for fear of getting the wrong answer. I always thought "There is no stupid question" was a stupid saying to make people feel better for being a complete dork. 

BUT...what I have learned is... if you aren't making mistakes... you're not making much of anything. There is a certain joy in making an error because now you know what not to do.

I learned something incredible about two years into my business. I was working full-time but still wanted to share the magic of Beachbody, help my customers, and be that little voice to encourage them to keep going. With a full-time work schedule, a boyfriend, part-time job, real estate lessons AND a budding business... I had to figure out how to be EFFECTIVE with my time.
I came up with the brilliant idea to create an email list for my Beachbody customers. It had recipes, clean eating tips, workout tips... in short...I felt like a genius.

For well over a year, I added new customers to this email list. One day I had I thought... Hmm I haven't looked at these emails in over a year! I should probably read them to see what I'm sending out.

The short of it... I was MORTIFIED!! My "brilliant" emails were ugly, stiff, and so transparently SALESY... I wanted to cover my face & hid in shame.

...but then I had a thought... As terrible as those emails were... they helped get me to where I was... They helped me build a 6-figure income from HOME... helped me encourage HUNDREDS of people through their transformations... helped me build an incredible team of girlbosses just like me...

So even in my suck-i-ness, I realized...I gave it my best. It got me here... I'm not going to waste this opportunity. I'm going to keep doing my best (even if that means I'll look back in a year and be embarrassed by it haha)

Not that you need it... but here is your official permission slip to make mistakes!
- "The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake- you can't learn anything from being perfect." - Adam Osborne

One of the hardest things to do is getting comfortable with messing up. It's not always pretty, sometimes you don't know which way is up, and you want to just hide your face from the world ... but if I've learned anything... it's that you don't learn anything... unless you fearlessly take action. What's the fun in being "perfect" anyway
wink emoticon

Just JUMP...and build your wings on the way down!

wink emoticon

YOU- are capable of SOO much MORE than you ever imagined. It's time to

I truly believe we were born with a purpose...and while they come in various shapes and sizes... We weren't born to just pay bills and then die.

There is no passion in playing it small or playing it safe. I believe we all have a "sweet spot." That remarkable place where your purpose meets your passion & strengths.

When you discover calling... Your strengths set you apart, your energy surges, you feel fulfilled & recharged by your work. 

Beachbody might not be your dream job (it's def mine hehe) but my hope & dream for you is that YOU find your passion & feel that fire in your gut.
...that you wake up with butterflies because your calling energizes you!

Challenge yourself, dream big, and do one at least one thing TODAY that scares you.
No pain, no gain...right?
My MISSION is to help you live out loud, kick BOOTY & have fun doing it.
Make me proud! hehe

GirlBoss Dynasty: Beachbody Heritage & Family Tree


I am SO proud of our "Beachbody Heritage" that it's important to me that you know how this all started. 

Carl Daikeler founded Beachbody with his partner Jon C in 1998. On the Beachbody message boards, they realized that people who had success with the programs were helping "coach" others through them on the message boards. 
In 2007, the TEAM Beachbody COACH opportunity was launched!
In 2009, the NEW young mommy to a premie baby was trying to get her pre-baby body back. She ordered P90X, posted a Youtube transformation video (that would change ALL of our lives) to pay it forward for all of the P90X results videos that inspired her! 
People started reaching out to her & she began "coaching" them through the program. She thought the company might have a "referral program" so she called into Beachbody & signed up as a COACH. 

This young mommy was RANDOMLY placed under a sponsor coach who did not/does not work the business at all. It began her mission to become the upline she always wished she had. 

Luckily for me... in Oct 2010... while I was searching for P90X results, I came across the now infamous Youtube video. I swear I was MAGNETICALLY drawn to this blonde beauty! haha I immediately saw the potential (and her vision) and signed up as a coach {before I even had a transformation!}

In 2011, as the team was growing...THE BOMBSHELL DYNASTY was born. In 4.5 short years, our upline LINDSAY MATWAY, has built a team from ONE... to over 30,000 coaches! 

Lindsay Matway accolades are extensive! No upline, no sponsor support...just a HUGE passion, VISION & sheer determination.
-- She is a 4x Top TEN coach
-- 2013's TOP Coach (First FEMALE TOP Coach) 
-- DOUBLE 15 Star Diamond -- over 53 PS Diamond Coaches
-- Achieved SC10 every month since she's been a coach 
-- Coach Advisory Board Member

The list goes on. She is the most humble, down to heart, genuine, passionate, spiritual person I know. She is a visionary, a pioneer and a true trail blazer! I am SO so proud, grateful & humbled to be not only a friend...but part of her team & her dream. 

A little about me... When I signed up as a coach, I was unhappy with my job, my weight & my future. I always had a gut feeling I was made for something BIG, but I could never figure out what that meant. 

Even though I was ALWAYS a great student & I graduated High School early...I ended up dropping out of college. I just couldn't afford it & I couldn't get any loans. 
I was working LONG hours as a retail manager...barely making ends meet. I was so stressed out that even when I worked out (on the treadmill), I would ruin it by binge eating Wendy's spicy chicken sandwiches while on the go! haha

I tried P90X & failed at it THREE times before I found Lindsay and signed up as a coach. Even though part of my thought it might be a scam...the other part of me KNEW this was something I had to do. I can't explain it other that just a GUT FEELING...everything in my life was leading to me Beachbody. 

I struggled as a coach (took me 6 weeks to make my first sale), but by 1 year & 3 months, I earned enough to quit my job & pursue Beachbody full time. 
Beachbody has been my ticket to FREEDOM. No stressing about $$$, no more alarm clock or boss, a focus on my HEALTH, HAPPINESS, PASSIONS and creativity. I even met my man Jay through Beachbody! 

From the ULTIMATE skeptic... who researched Beachbody reviews on the Better Business Bureau lol... trust me when I say the potential here is LIMITLESS.

This business is ALL about sharing what you love and what has enabled you to start reaching your goals. Beachbody offers an element that no other fitness program does... Personalized support from coaches... and that is what A LOT of people need. Someone to support and hold them accountable.

That's exactly who we are... a FAMILY heart emoticon
