I’ll be leaving for Alaska in 2 days and I’m thinking about you as I prepare for my training session on “Building your Business with Vision – Why Bodywise, Why Now…”
Here’s the thing. There are a lot of weight management companies out there, but there are not a lot of opportunities out there doing WHAT we are doing the WAY we are doing it. Go ahead and Google “women’s weight management business opportunities”. You will find a lot of franchised programs but you won’t find many opportunities like ours. We are really uniquely positioned. Don’t get me wrong – we can all name other weight-loss companies. We can even name other direct sales weight loss companies, but most of these opportunities are based on a limited caloric intake (being hungry all the time). A lot of them include replacing one or two meals with shakes, but they don’t include snacks.
Out of the 5 top consultants in our team (the team you are on), 3 are fitness professionals. We love this program because it is exactly what we have been telling our clients for years about good nutrition. People are joining our program because they know better than they did 10, 15 or 20 years ago. Gone are the days when people actually believed there might be a ‘secret’ to weight loss. There isn’t one and we all know it! We know now that the only secret to weight loss it that we simply need to eat small portions every 2 – 3 hours and stay active. Smaller portions – more often. This rings true with you and I and it rings true with the people we talk to. We are the program they have been looking for!
I will never forget the Nike commercial I saw when I was 19 years old. It was the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona. I was the heaviest I had ever been. I was frustrated, embarassed, depressed and completely obsessed with my weight. It was a low point of my body image issues. I remember thinking – it would be so great to be able to dedicate your life to being in great shape. I don’t believe in coincidence so it seems pre-destined that shortly after this I received a call from an aquaintance who had gone for an interview at a local fitness centre but couldn’t take the job for some reason. She called me to let me know there was an opening. It seemed surreal that I went in and got the job. (I was completely intimidated). It was the beginning of a new life. In time I became a personal trainer and a new world opened up before me. Now I could live the dream that seemed completely out of reach for me through years of self-doubt, self-loathing and frustration. I learned how to eat properly (no secrets here – it is exactly the Elance program as you know it), and I actually got paid to work out and focus on fitness.
If that seems like an option that is outside of reality for you, I want you to think again. Bodywise is that opportunity brought to a level that is absolutely attainable for EVERYBODY! Simply by commiting to our program, anyone can literally earn a living by becoming healthy! Think of all the cosmetic companies out there that enable women to earn a living by taking care of themselves and making themselves glamorous. WE are the company that will allow the women you love to stay home with their children and own their own schedule simply by achieving their ideal healthy weight, and living life to the fullest.
Seven mangers from our Canadian team have qualified for and will be attending the annual incentive trip this week. (This year we will be admiring the amazing west coast of BC and Alaska). When I get back we will be focusing as a team on defining this amazing opportunity and explosive growth. Kathy Martino and I will be getting together this week to discuss some exciting new tools to help you build your team to levels you have only dreamt about.
This is our year. I can’t wait to how many of you will acheive things you never thought could be possible for you.
Have a great week and I will have some great announcements for you when I get back.
