WHEN MY LIFE FOREVER CHANGED

Four years ago this very month I stumbled across a Facebook post that would forever change my life. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
January 2012 I saw a random post from a guy I didn’t know, talking about how he was paying an extra five grand for his house payment. I remember the post had over 200 likes and a ton of comments. It popped up in my newsfeed even though I wasn’t friends with this guy because 20 of my friends commented on his post. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Details I remember because five grand was more than we made an entire MONTH. So I couldn’t FATHOM anyone having five grand EXTRA for a bill. We were lucky to have a few hundred dollars in savings! AND, I had 200 friends on Facebook. Having that many likes on a post just BLEW MY MIND! 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
“This guy must be a celebrity.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was curious, I went to his page, clicked over to his website, and did a lot of research {aka stalking}. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I found out he wasn’t a celebrity, he was just a Beachbody coach living in Idaho Falls Idaho. I saw transformation photos, information on Shakeology, testimonials from people using the products and that stole my attention. I wanted to lose weight, I had been working on it for months and was at a plateau. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
We were SUPER tight on our finances. I wanted to try out Shakeology, but it felt super pricey for our budget. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
But they say when you want to see changes bad you find a way, if you don’t really care about making changes in your life, you find an excuse. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had taken the excuse route for years, realized it was getting me NO WHERE real fast. I wanted RESULTS.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I found a way to make it work and bought my first bag of Shakeology as a customer. I reallocated grocery money, trusting in the bottom of the bag guarantee JUST IN CASE it wasn’t all it was chalked up to be. wink emoticon 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
That first month I lost 8 pounds, several inches, and had more energy. For 4 months I used the shake, I started and completed P90X, never saying a WORD to Scottie, finding motivation to keep moving forward in his daily posts and blog. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I saw changes. I lost a total of 35 pounds doing P90X & drinking Shakeology {this came AFTER a 20 lb weight loss journey}. And I felt a SURGE of excitement for the SOLUTION and CHANGES I was seeing! Everyone needed to know about this!! I felt I NEEDED to be a coach and spread the word. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I finally reached out to this guy, Scottie Hobbs, and introduced myself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Scottie is the one who had inspired me to even START my health and fitness journey. The one who inspired me to even START this business. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because of his inspiration and his example, my life has been forever changed. I have worked hard no doubt, Scottie didn’t hand me anything, he didn’t build my business for me. But I worked hard knowing if I followed Scottie’s example I would see the same results. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
And now, he’s giving ME a present to celebrate three years as an Elite coach. Bright red Solo Beats. The NICEST headphones you can get. Because that’s the kind of coach he is. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you Scottie. For the beats because they are super awesome and I love them wink emoticon, but thank you for being the inspiration to change my life. Looking at these headphones I can’t help but reflect back on this journey and your role in my life. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because I saw you LIVE OUT what I wanted to accomplish, I knew I could do it too. Forever grateful.
