Have you ever imagined…being your own boss, doing something you LOVE, living life on your own time and schedule? Having the freedom and flexibility to create your own schedule, plan your own life, while still being able to provide for yourself and your family. I imagined that life, and now I have that life! Now is the time for female entrepreneurs in the fitness industry, it is time to be a girlboss…so what are you waiting for?
Ladies, when I was in college I had no idea what I wanted to do, I had no “calling” and no real passion for any certain career field…I knew I wanted to help people, I knew I wanted to make a living doing something that was great and didn’t make me dread going to work every day. I knew I wanted to be a girlboss. After years of struggling with my own health and weight loss issues, I had recently found a passion for working out and eating healthy. I loved working out, getting my girlfriends to workout with me, and cooking healthy meals for all of us. During a training session with one of my girlfriend’s, she suggested, you should be a personal trainer! It clicked…that is exactly what I wanted to do! I started researching the best certifications, went with NASM and started working towards my certification. I was so excited, this was the only thing I could picture myself doing! Then, one of my father’s friends mentioned, “She won’t make any money being a personal trainer unless she owns a gym, and even that is tough”. So, I started researching the average salaries for personal trainers in my area, checking out local gyms that might be hiring, and I started to realize…he might be right. However, I was determined that I would make it, this was the only thing I wanted to do!
Shortly after that, I was finally certified and ready to start my new career. I made a website, business cards, and was ready to start training clients. I checked out a few gyms but was determined to do it on my own, make my own money, my own schedule, and be my own girlboss. However, I was coming up short. I got a few clients here and there, but wasn’t making any money. My clients loved me and I loved them, but I just had no idea how to find more clients to start growing my business, and I started to realized I was going to have to train from the early am to the late evening daily if I was going to be able to make a good income. That is when I found #FitTeamInspire and my coach Jessica! The day I signed up Team Inspire via my partnership with BeachBody, my life changed! All of a sudden, not only was my business taking off due to the marketing skills they were teaching me, but I started learning about online training, passive income, and that in order to be a successful girlboss, I was going to have to develop multiple steams of income. Now, almost a year later, I am a successful online and in person trainer, who works mostly from home around my own schedule, loves my job, and my business is growing! I am a girlboss! This is all thanks to my partnership with Team Inspire.
Team Inspire has helped me in so many ways! The top things I have gained from joining this team are:
• I am no longer only trading dollars for hours: I don’t want to spend all day in the gym. I LOVE working with my in person clients, but I also love the freedom to pick and choose how many hours I spend in the gym. Not only did I learn how to run successful online boot camps, create multiple steams on income via eBooks, etc. but the Team INSPIRE and the BeachBody (makers of P90X and INSANITY) leg of my business has provided another stream of residual income for my business.
• A Tribe: Team INSPIRE is a team of over 200 passionate, uplifting, and inspiring fitness fanatics and professionals. I have somewhere to go for all my questions, concerns, and to bounce ideas with someone. These ladies are amazing and so helpful to each other, we really do support and lift one another up!
• Supplements I can stand behind: It’s been amazing for me to be able to recommend the best shakes and supplements to my clients. Not only have I found a meal replacement shake, Shakeology, that I LOVE but I can also feel 100% confident in recommending it, and it provides my business with another stream of income if my clients do decided to use it.
• Learning to be a girlboss: I was taught nothing about marketing or running a business when I got my certification. I had no idea how to find clients, create new streams of income, or how to make a brand for myself. Thanks to my team, I have learned all that and continue to learn new ways to grow daily.
If you want to work in the fitness industry and be successful you must learn how to be a girlboss. You want to love your job, and not end up getting burnt out working hours in the gym, trying to keep and get new clients. You can LOVE your job, your life, and be successful! Team Inspire can teach you how!
