Exactly one year ago today, I said “YES”!! No, not to get married — that was in September 2013. 🙂 I said YES….to coaching.
Let’s rewind real fast….I went to college to become a teacher, always thought I would be a teacher, and then I became a teacher…I taught MS and HS Spanish. I got married. Then, somewhere along the way, my husband and I decided we wanted to start a family. The stress of my job was beginning to override my passion for teaching. The countless hours of work, the commute, and the long days were doing a number on me.
I KNEW something was going to have to change before we started a family.
So……I said YES. The coaching opportunity fell into my lap once again after being approached probably 5 times before I actually took the offer once and for all. I worked for 8 months on top of my full-time job as a teacher and it was worth every minute to be where I am now!
What did I do? I worked out, ate right, invested my time in helping people find a healthy lifestyle, and simply shared MY story and MY journey. If you have been following along all these months….thank you. I am truly blessed by all your love and support!
So, today I celebrate my first year of coaching! I celebrate the job that brought my family financial freedom. The job that allowed me to leave my teaching job and make a career from home so I can be with my newborn son. The job has facilitated lifelong friendships with incredible women. The job that has ignited my passion for health and fitness into a way for me to help provide for my family.
God has provided immensely over this last year and I could not be more grateful for every person he has brought into my life since beginning my coaching journey.
As I share this in celebration tonight, I also share as an invitation for YOU! If you were in a spot like I was a year ago, you love fitness, or love building relationships, I would love to share more about my experience with you! There is so much freedom in taking a deep breath, trusting your passion, and saying YES! So many people stay in careers they hate for years because they don’t believe they can do anything else — That was me! But believe me, YOU CAN!!
THANK YOU to everyone who has helped me get to this year point — my husband, Spencer Smith: for always supporting my dreams, and my amazing team: without your amazing support and dedication to helping others, we would not be who we are as a team!
