Does everyone who starts a business from an MLM company need to follow the same type of business strategies? I’ve been talking with a lot of people with good and bad feedback lately and it’s all had me thinking. Can we change the perception and maybe be more outwardly flexible with the approach?
I’m hoping so. Because I hope to prove that. And I will start here by giving you some insight and share some revelations about myself with you guys, some of which I just the last few days have had revelations about. Read on….
🤔I don’t really like posting selfies and video’s every day. I am not a selfie taker by nature. Never have been. I usually don’t even take photo’s of people ever. I’m a scenery/nature/animals kind of photographer. This is why lately you’ve seen less of them. I stepped outside the box and started posting more ( a best business strategy), but it just didn’t feel right for me. Not that it’s not totally ok. I don’t think bad of others that post a zillion a day. It’s just not ME. I actually forget to take selfies and even when I’m on vacations can forget to take pictures because I’m so involved in whatever I’m experiencing atm.
🤔I do believe in doing more than just building my business with more than just what you get when you sign up with the MLM. For instance, I am headed back to school after the new year to add to my knowledge to help others lead healthier lives for nutrition certification. Some though will say you don’t need to do that. Just work on your at home biz. I on the other hand want to strive for more and more info to help myself and others.
🤔Helping myself get healthy really is #1 (not a best business strategy), but followed closely at #2 is helping you get healthier too. Making money is #3 and for me is just a by-product. I would and will do this anyway even if I don’t make a dime. I want to be healthy and I found what helps me lead a healthy life. So all I can do is be honest with you and help you when and where I can.
🤔There is more to my social media life than just business and I will share that even if the best way to a successful business is keeping your focus business minded on social media. Usually for best business strategy you should stick to business and one or two relate-able points of interest. And that’s fabulous. But also for best business strategy you should try and keep things upbeat, no negativity, and no Debbie Downers (sorry anyone named Debbie or Debbie Downer). I am active politically, environmentally and animal welfare oriented. And not always are these happy shiny places. I do agree you need to turn negatives into positive action though so my spin will usually always include how you can help. But some times I will talk about hard things. sad things and even angry things. Because these are also things I’m passionate about.
🤔My nutrition will never be 100% clean and on point. Hello, I live in this world too ya know. There are bakeries and pizza shops etc… And I am a carb-aholic. So I attempt to eat clean 90% of the time and want you to strive for that too. But yeah you will see oooey gooey recipes from me occasionally. Life is about treating that only body you will ever have with love and respect. So while I will forever push good clean nutrition I also know people are not machines and we need a little room so that it can be a habit and not a *restrictive diet.
🤔I don’t like to do ONLY the workout programs from Beachbody. I’m also a big fan of Les Mills programs (Bodypump, Bodyflow) and I love Bob Harper’s workouts too. I get bored easily and like a LOT of variety. That being said, BOD is perfect for those seeking variety and assorted levels of ability. Plus it’s a streaming service you can use just about anywhere.
🤔That being said, BOD, Shakeology and PCS are the BEST thing you can ever do for yourself, your health and your body.
🤔And this business is something you can build while you are working on your won health and nutritional goals. It’s kind of the bonus to getting healthy.
🤔You can do it my way and build a business perhaps slower because you don’t or won’t follow all the best business strategy rules. OR you can take the wealth of knowledge and expertise that the training gives you and build a thriving business in 3 months to a year.
I’ll be honest here. First and foremost if you take on this business it has to be for YOUR health and fitness. If it’s not and you just want to make a buck. Or it is but you lose sight of that while trying to build a business, STOP trying to build the business and focus on YOUR health. This is NOT a fast track to rolling in money. This is about getting your health back, about staying healthy and about helping others who want to do the same.
This IS a path for:
✨learning to live a healthy lifestyle
✨helping yourself and others
This is not a get rich quick scheme, this is not just a job. And you need to look beyond all the coaches who tend to, at first glance seem like carbon copies of one another, all the selfies and all the pomp and circumstance you see, when in fact honestly good people are trying to tell you in their own way about something that they’ve found that works for them, and works reallllly well helping them get healthy and fit. Many of whom have had tremendous struggles with weight and diet fails along the way.
So be patient with us. Some may seem silly, some may even seem filled with vanity with all their photo’s. Some even get too full of their own self image hype. But not all is what it seems. We are all just trying to tell you our truth, in our own sometimes stumbling, awkward ways.
I want you to get healthy as much as I want me to get healthy. I found a path that works really well for me, and it may work really well for you too. So if you want to know more about BOD, fitness programs, Shakeology, PCS, or the biz, fill out the form below and tell me what your health and fitness goals are and I will work with you one on one to achieve them 💙
*some diets are restrictive by their purpose and as always people who are on prescribed diets by a physician or medical provider should follow the advice of their doctor first and foremost.
