Alisha: Money Haunts Me

As the oldest of four children, I was a pretty responsible kid. I felt I had to grow up faster than most because we had a large family, and things were tight. I grew up watching my parents having to deal with trying to provide for all four of us and sometimes it meant putting us ahead of paying the bills.
I remember coming home and the power being off because the bills were late. While I appreciated the fact that they put us ahead of everything else, it instilled in me a fear of never having enough money or not being able to pay the credit card or electricity bill at the end of the month. I became a child that saved money for as long as I could remember. I was always very aware of what I spent and still am.
I wish I could say that I have let it go, but I haven’t. I still think about money almost every day. I could have 2 million dollars in the bank right now, and it would never be enough, I would still stress. I have, however, learned not to let it control my life as much as it used to.
So What Has Changed?
Honestly, it has been our Beachbody business, NC Fit Club. For the last seven years, we’ve grown it to a successful 6 figure business that grows each year. Having the extra income has helped that stress diminish. It’s allowed me to cut back my hours as a dental assistant, from 4 to 2 days a week. When I cut back my hours, that scared me to DEATH, but I knew that by doing so, I could focus more on what Todd and I are passionate about (helping people) as well as being more available for our daughter, Carly. It was incredible to me how fast I was able to make that money back.
Because of NC Fit Club it has allowed us to save, pay down debt and do things I never thought would be possible, especially with Carly. Beachbody Coaching has become such a blessing in our life, and I can’t even imagine where we would be financially if we had said no to this opportunity.
If you’re a single mom out there, this opportunity could provide money for groceries, utilities, or just a date or family night out. It could be a car payment, or savings account for your child’s college fund, whatever it could be for you, it’s an opportunity, an opportunity to make a change financially that could alleviate some stress while also changing people’s lives. Trust me I know.
Does this interest you?
I realize that this isn’t for everyone, but if this sounds even slightly appealing to you fill out our coach application and I’d be happy to tell you more about it.
