Hi! My name is Tawnya Jean, aka Momma T, aka @shakomomma, and I ventured into my fitness journey divorced, 15 pounds overweight, depressed, nearing bankruptcy and with 3 kids who needed me to be more than a statistic.
I was introduced to Beachbody through a friend at work that invited me to a Brazilian Butt Lift workout. I had a background in network marketing and I had a tingling suspicion there might be an opportunity available behind her invitation. Because I was a “busy” mom of 3 I couldn’t get over to her house but, kept asking her questions to find out more. I have always wanted to have a business I could work from home and I’ve attempted daycare, graphic design, blogging, Melaleuca consultant, etc. But, never finding one that worked for me. None of those options felt “right” to me so I always stopped because it felt like tedious work or the pay wasn’t worth the exchange of time….
So! Being introduced through a friend at the time I still wasn’t sure how working out could result in an at-home business so I started researching Beachbody.
As she kept asking me about what kind of exercise I liked to do and if I would consider a meal replacement shake I was giving her all no’s and asking how she started her business.
Once I told her I was interested in Insanity she sent me a link to sign up and I was thrilled to get my Congratulations Coach welcome email.
At the time, I had also been entertaining the idea of becoming a realtor/property manager so I was looking into getting my real estate license. One night on the couch as I was talking about it with my boyfriend I told him I’d like to earn enough money through Beachbody to pay for my real estate license. He looked over at me and said, “Or you could just do this?” I think I had a puzzled look on my face so he said, “The coaching. Working with people. Earning commissions, etc.” I thought at the time “But, I’m not a sales person. I’m not sure I could do it full-time?” Well, as it turns out that was a huge turning point. I realized that I’ve been a sales person in EVERY job I’ve ever had! Serving, Bartending, Managing, Supervising, Assisting.. I was always “selling” something but it’s all in the terminology. For me, it’s about helping people, asking questions, being a cheerleader, and getting results.
Throughout my goal setting, I still wrote “Real Estate License” on my goals list (and thought to myself I’d still drink Diet Pepsi even though others had said Shako kicks diet soda to the curb). I followed Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Push as part of my training and after I wrote out my goals, wishes, and dreams it clicked. She said there would be one thing on the list that would make everything else attainable.
At that moment…I KNEW WITH EVERY PART OF MY BEING THIS WAS IT. I had found a business opportunity I wanted to pursue. My passion went through the roof about it. I realized just by paying it forward and helping others I could give my family the life they deserve. With as little as the cost of dinner and a movie I could build my business to be a six digit income earner and LOVE what I’m doing at the same time!!!
Four days later I had Insanity and Shakeology in hand and barreled through late night workout sessions with my boyfriend after the kids went to bed. During the day I was absorbing every YouTube video and Beachbody training I could get my hands on while drinking my daily dose of nutritious and delicious Shakeology.
I lost 15 pounds and 9 inches in 60 days!! Because I’m more a “progress and not perfection” kinda gal and still only eat clean 60ish% of the time my results reflect that. Tom, on the other hand, CRUSHED his results! Down 30 pounds and abs for DAYS!
It’s truly amazing what one can do when they set their mind to it.
Since May of 2013 we have both enjoyed the rewards of coaching and I became a “boss-free” work from home momma on March 8th 2014! I went on my FREE SS Beachbody cruise to Cozumel and Grand Cayman as a reward for helping others in the past year and made memories of a lifetime!
Tom will soon be joining me working from home as we build a stable, supportive, loving, and blessed life for our 5 amazing children working towards our FREE trip to Cancun 2015!!
