'Tis the Season to Pay it Forward

Meet my car, Hope. She an awesome 2010 Nina Sentra. “Hope” has been with me since 2011 (Earlier that summer, I was rear ended in a hit & run. My poor Toyota didn’t make it so I was in need of a new car).

Car shopping has always caused SO MUCH anxiety. To make matters worse, I wasn’t expecting to have my car totalled sooooo I did not have a single cent saved for a down payment.  With virtually no credit… the whole process of having to apply for a loan almost sent me into a panic attack.

Luckily, I found a great deal and my parents helped me with a down payment. “Hope” was all mine and I’ve always been so grateful to have her. One of my FIRST goals as a coach was to earn enough for my car payment and eventually pay off my loan as early as possible.

Beachbody has been such a godsend that I was not only able to pay off my little car...but I was able to cover my mortgage and completely pay that off along with every other piece of debt #CompleteFinancialFreedom!

On stage, shredding my mortgage!

This car has been with me during such a TRANSFORMATIVE time in my life. And even though my paychecks have increased tenfold...I never saw the need to trade her in or upgrade.

...However… that has changed. A couple of months ago, I met a coach on my team. A young mom who has been driving her son to daycare in a RUSTED, WOBBLY, SHAKING car. I think there is more wrong with this car than right- Basically an accident waiting to happen.

I knew this was my opportunity to pay it forward and give HOPE to a young family in need of some reliable {SAFE} wheels.

This weekend, I have to joy of gifting HOPE to this incredible family and sharing in the magic of Beachbody hehe

In honor of my team reaching a HUGE, MASSIVE, INSANE goal... I am finally be able to walk into a dealership and get a car without the anxiety, stress, trembling knees and fear.

#TisTheSeason UPDATE: Cassie came for a visit and drove her NEW car home!! I'll miss my little Nissan but I am OVERJOYED for her to have a SAFE car for her growing family!
