Financial Freedom Friday – Quietly Building

I am not just DREAMING… I am DOING.

I am more of a quiet hustler… not completely silent, but I am quietly moving along and doing girl boss things.

Being surrounded by like-minded people last week has only strengthened my resolve to achieve financial freedom. And its only been recently that I started to truly believe it was possible. I knew it was before, too, but we kept going 1 step forward, several steps back, and it was discouraging to some degree.

But here, in the now… I know it’s possible. I know it’s in motion. I know it’s not overnight, but I know it is happening. I am working hard, and quietly but seriously building the life I WANT, not the one given by default.

Are you? Do you want to be? Do you think we could do it together? Because… I DO! And I would love to!

Financial Freedom Friday – Can’t Be Laid Off

Having recently been laid off due to funding, (and then picked up by another company, gratefully!), I will say it’s still terrifying and stressful, but there is also a peace of mind that comes along with knowing I have been steadily building my Beachbody business towards profitable. It feels really good to have a backup plan; to know that in a sea of things I cannot control, that’s not one of them – I can’t be laid off from Beachbody! I’m the boss!

I mean, I was asked if I would go to coaching full time instead of looking to continue my industry work elsewhere, and while I would LOVE to, my financial situation isn’t there yet, and I would hate to go backwards – into MORE debt, instead of waiting until I am debt free and doing it the proper way.

So yes, it is a goal – to someday be the only boss I have, and not be at the mercy of funding, or contract disputes, or anything else. But not yet – for now, I am happily dual-hatted 🙂

 

Work For It Wednesday – Florida Vacation Edition

Vacations used to stress me out, majorly. The planning, the logistics, and oh, the money. Both getting the most bang for our buck, and the paying for it.

Vacations, even cheap ones, are stressful on most people’s finances. Or, if they aren’t, they are vacations that are paid in full because they were saved up for. Which takes a LOT of discipline, you know.

Here soaking in the Florida sunshine with family, my heart. Making memories. Moments. Laughing and living and loving life.

These are the moments we work hard for. These are the moments we grind for.

I am grateful today that by me sharing my story, and helping others feel good about themselves, I have made vacations less stressful financially. Still stressful, but less so. And some day, they won’t be, because they WILL be paid in full with the income I work my butt off to earn by being real, raw, honest and transparent in my journey.

That I have the courage to do that, and reap such fabulous rewards as the result, is awesome. And YOU also have the courage to do it, you just might not know it yet. Are you willing to work for it? Let’s chat!

Because it must be said:

**Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity. Your income will, of course, match your efforts!**

Fierce Friday – My Vision

I don’t like to talk about money. It’s such a touchy subject, and most people have so many emotions around it. So I usually avoid it.

But here is the thing – I share my fitness journey. I share my attempt at balancing eating clean the majority of the time instead of subsisting off of pizza, nachos, and chicken wings (the real struggle in all of this!). And I share how EFT/Tapping and working on my mindset has greatly helped me. I share those pillars easily and often.
But there is something missing. There is a 4th pillar holding this up. I don’t often enough share what this opportunity has done for me financially. I don’t share much how it has helped me see there is light at the end of the debt tunnel. I don’t share often that I was able to eliminate my credit card debt with my supplemental Beachbody income.
I talk a lot about how awesome this business is, and how its helped me grow, and thrive, and come out of my shell, and a million other things… but I always shy away from the financial aspect because I mean who wants to come across as braggadocious? It’s less about padding my bank account and more about giving myself the gift of NOT having debt, NOT having to worry what I will do if a huge, unexpected expense comes up.
Most importantly? It’s about being able to spend more time with my little ones when the day finally comes that I become a mother. To be able to comfortably stay home during those milestone moments.
My long term vision will be achieved by all my short and long term work, but I know this: it WILL happen. I am working diligently on making sure of it!
