The Nate Razzano Story
Six years ago, my life consisted of working 60 hours a week as a restaurant manager— and barely making enough money to pay the bills. I was overworked and underpaid, and I felt disconnected from my purpose in life.
I got a phone call one day from my mom who said she heard of a business opportunity called “Coaching” that would be perfect for me. I rolled my eyes, told her I was not interested, and hung up the phone. She persisted every week for six months—until I finally signed up to get her off my back.
I slacked on my business until my mother convinced me to attend a Team Beachbody event held by a Coach three states over. That’s when I learned that Beachbody wasn’t about selling products, it was about changing lives.
I was tired of working myself to the ground for someone else’s business only to still be living paycheck to paycheck. Once I saw the freedom that Coaching could provide me while being able to be my own boss and have no cap on the level of income I could earn, I knew this was something I had to dedicate myself to.
Two weeks after committing to Beachbody, my business started to grow. Three months later, I had hit my goal of replacing my full-time income as a manager with my income from Beachbody—a job I had been at for 10 years!* I decided it was time to commit fully to this business, so I took the risk and quit my manager job.
As I was transitioning to my full-time Coaching career, I met my wife, Kaliste. She was in my first official Challenge Group and signed up to be a Coach on my team shortly afterward.
My wife and I are finally on a solid financial plan and working to become debt free by the end of 2016. Committing myself to my Beachbody business wasn’t always easy, but I am living proof that when you truly commit yourself to working towards something, all that hard work pays off.
I now get to live with the comfort that my family can afford all the organic groceries we want, travel whenever we want, and Kaliste and I can go on fancy, weekly dates. Most importantly, I’m now able to spend time with my family. Our family is experiencing true freedom thanks to the opportunity Beachbody has given us, and I know that as long as I keep staying consistent, there is nowhere to go but up from here.
