6 years ago or so, I started Body Life Works Inc. I didn’t know what I would do with it. I got certified in everything I could. I trained some clients, worked in some gyms, taught some classes.. got pregnant. Had some babies. My husband lost his job and we were struggling…My photography business flourished so I put my fitness biz to the side, thinking i would never make any money doing it, without working insane hours, and that just wasn’t realistic to me.
Fast forward. I am here. Doing this. Dreaming bigger, dreaming of MORE possibilities. Over the spring, one of my best friends and I decided to start a fit club. I filled my entire basement with people wanting to learn from us. All Ages, abilities, fitness levels. Everyone was smiling, laughing, sweating. At our first one, so many people stayed after to talk to us that I forgot to make the Shakeology samples, LOL! Obviously this isn’t all about sales to me. That is just an extra bonus…the bonus that I am making money doing something I am SO passionate about.
Then in July we signed the lease to Bodylife360– where we bring our passion in person as well. BUT — the truth is–I wake up every morning just SO excited of what is yet to come for my team. I am coaching others daily, not only on fitness goals, but on their own business goals as well.
There are a lot of maybes, what ifs.. I don’t yet know if our family is complete, if we will live in our current house forever or if we will always live in Indiana. But what I DO know is that I will continue to live each day to it’s fullest with PASSION, STRENGTH, PERSEVERANCE.
I’ve had a rough couple of months in my personal life. I am not always positive. I am a real person with real feelings and emotions and highs and lows. I have cried on the phone to my success partner at 6am while she drives to work because something I worked for wasn’t a reality anymore, and instead of focusing on that, I had to CHOOSE to use that energy to push me forward.
Life is unpredictable. Why waste it doing something you feel like you SHOULD be doing just because that is what society says or college says or whatever???
