This. Is. HUGE. 🤫
We’ve never done this before. I really don’t like to discount what I do, because what I offer IS so valuable as a servant leader. And we will probably never do this again because it’s so much work 🙈—but next week, my team and I will be hosting a week long END OF SUMMER FLASH SALE 👌🏼 Come get some KILLER deals on fitness plans, nutrition plans, healthy recipe books, supplements, and more, that have all helped me stay consistent with a healthy lifestyle for the past year and a half 💕
DROP yo fave emoji below and I’ll add you to the flash sale, so you can come check things out next week 😘
I gave myself permission to give my boss a four week notice to follow a calling I never imagined was for me.
Exactly 3 years ago I walked out of my classroom for the last time. I spent over 10 years as an infant/toddler teacher and aide to some of the most amazing children and families.
And as much as I enjoyed using my masters degree and joy of being with children, I was forced to find a part-time job just a year into my full-time job as a teacher.
We were given furlough days: required days off, twice a month due to budget cuts. My insurance went sky high. And I never once received a raise (not even a cost of living raise) in all 7 years of being employed.
I still enjoyed teaching and witnessing my children’s first words, first steps, first independent moments. But I couldn’t pay my bills on time. Forget about a vacation.
There I was, with a masters degree, having done everything I was “supposed to do” to prepare for adulthood and a career.
So I panicked and started looking for a supplemental job. Something I could do on the weekends and evenings.
Clean homes/offices? 😤 I did that in college.
Waitress? 🤷🏻♀️ Wasn’t really me.
New career? 🤦🏻♀️ I couldn’t leave my families.
And then God intervened.
See, right around this time I celebrated a 60 lb weight loss anniversary and friends were approaching me for help and guidance. And I started seeing this thing float around social media about “coaching.” But I quickly wrote that off...I’m not a “coach.” I was obese for so many years so how would others want my help?
But it kept coming up.
I kept pondering the likelihood of being a coach.
And here I am today. Through hustle and sweat, I am able to raise my daughter from home.
I don’t have to stress about her hip displasia harness and teaching others how to work around it. I can take my daughter to her Shriners appointments without asking for time off.
I can work while my 10 week old lays on my chest. I can alter my schedule to best suit our family needs. I can go on multiple vacations a year, some for free.
And I make more money than I ever did as a teacher. I teach others in a new capacity but with the same level of passion and joy.
There is something powerful about a group of women coming together with a mission to work on themselves, support each other and motivate and inspire others to do the same. .
▶️Do I have a degree in health and fitness? Sure don't - family studies and human development actually 🤭
▶️Am I the fittest (is that a word?) chick on the block - Uh no! But I am working on me and fitness is a journey 💪 .
Here is what I do have....a community of people that lift me up, keep me accountable and provide me with all the tools and resources I need to inspire others to live their best healthy lives. I have an arsenal of workouts and a nutrition plan that I strongly believe in and have given me results. I have more confidence. A group of bomb.com friends I would have never otherwise met. .
You hear "coaching" and think "I'm not qualified, who am I to teach others." I thought the same thing. But like I said.....it's a powerful thing to be a part of something that can make a difference in just one person's life and work on you at the same time with all the support you can imagine. And if that even remotely makes you smile...this may be worth at least hearing more about. So .....now that I wrote that novel....tomorrow night...grab a beverage, put your comfy pants on and plop in front of the computer and hear all about this goodness. Drop a 🙌 below!
✨Hold your vision & trust the process✨ Because somehow we always end up right where we are meant to be, right when we are meant to be there💕... even if we don’t know it yet🤷🏽♀️ Who else is trying to feel strong AF this week?

Doing what you love is freedom...
Loving what you do is happiness...
Having both is pure bliss💗
Helping women find themselves again, build their confidence, learn to love the skin they are in and then helping them build a biz of helping others, is the most rewarding job EVER!!!! - I’d actually do it even if I wasn’t paid!!
As a matter of fact I did!!! 😍 - I used to run an accountability group just to help encourage all my friends & to keep myself going on my own journey....So when I was able to turn my passion into my business and then help other women do the same, damn straight I jumped on it!
BUT it actually took me about 7 times of having the opportunity presented to me, you can say I’m I bet of a skeptic and hard headed 😜😂!!!
So glad I put my doubts and fears aside and I’m sure the 100’s of women I’ve helped are glad too 💗!!
happy trails kid [sorry about the horrible quality you can go jump off a cliff instagram luv u]
