Truth Talk {Tuesday}

It’s time for Truth Talk Tuesday, well I just made that up but it seemed fitting for todays post! HA

Let me take a minute to be real with you. Someone approached me about 2 years ago asking if I was interested in being a Beach Body Coach, BEFORE I knew anything about it, I immediately thought “NO, I’m not a sales person, I don’t want to push products on people, I don’t want to be THAT person on Facebook and I am nowhere near the “goal” body that it takes to be a Coach!” So I said no thanks, I’m not interested. Fast forward two years, after having my daughter, my husband and I decided that I could stay home with her full time. And of course being the multitasking entrepreneur, party planning graphic designer and blogger that I am, I knew I still wanted to “work” from home too. I thought that my ETSY store, selling party invites would be my solution! I had it for over 2 years and started it while I worked another full time job. I had already done the work to get it up and going, I had invested time and my heart into it and I finally had it to a point that I was making great money!

Everything was perfect right?! Wrong, even though I could work from home, spend time with my daughter, and use my graphic design skills to run my own successful business, I was STRESSED OUT!!!! I was getting a TON of orders that I didn’t feel like I could keep up. I was spending hours and hours on the computer and was an emotional basket case when my husband got home. I was exhausted all the time and consumed with always trying to make enough money to “contribute” to our finances. I was getting FLOODED with emails from people who saw my blog and my weightloss story of doing the Jamie Eason Live Fit challenge {Lost 30 lbs in 4 months} and I realized something, WOW I really LOVE helping people! I really love sharing my own tips and things I have learned along the way! It would be amazing if THIS was my job!
Finally one day my husband says, take the money out of it, take all the hardwork you have put into your etsy out and just think about what you LOVE. If you could do a job everyday what would it be? Helping people? OR selling party invites? Honestly, it made me mad! HAHA I couldn’t get over how much work I put into my etsy and it was finally taking off. But then I knew my answer would be and will always be: helping people. So after a bunch of God intervened instagram following and relationship building, this amazing woman Tiffany Harper came into my life and is now my awesome friend, mentor and Coach! I signed up as a beach body coach in May of this year, it was a HUGE step of faith! For me, for my family, for our finances and I didnt know if I could do it. I didnt have all the answers BUT I did know, that I believe my calling is to help people. To encourage, to motivate and to speak into peoples lives! I did know then and now that I want to wake up everyday helping and serving others!

If you want to join me for my Coach Sneak Peek Happy Hour tonight at 8pm EST, we would LOVE to have you!! I will be sharing more about the coaching business and how I turned my love for “helping people”, my passion for graphic design and my love of fitness, into an actual job and YEP I get to put my family and my faith as top priority 🙂
