The Jenn Richardson Story
I was two months postpartum with my second son when I made the decision to join Beachbody. I always had big dreams for my life. I went to college and got my master’s degree, but I wasn’t able to get a teaching job in Criminology, which was my field of study, so I gave up. I settled into the role of wife and mom, but something was still missing for me.
The fact that I now had two babies under the age of two, the idea of even attempting a trip to the gym was completely overwhelming. But when a Coach I had been following on Instagram reached out to me about the Coaching opportunity, I knew this would give me the accountability I needed to stay on track with my fitness goals while also providing a creative outlet for myself as a person—outside of being a mom and wife.
My first year of Coaching, I placed a big emphasis on my personal weight loss goal. I wasn’t, however, actively working the Coaching business. People kept telling me, “Jenn, you went to graduate school. Why are you throwing that away to do something else?” I let those negative thoughts get into my head, until one day I had enough. I told myself I was going to give this business 100% of my effort for three months and see what I could accomplish.
When I started to really get to work on my business, I was making around $100 a week. Three months later, I was bringing in around $1000 a week, which was when I made the decision to quit my full-time job. Since then, I’ve watched that weekly number rise into a 5-figure a week number, something that seemed completely impossible to me—it still feels so surreal!*
Coaching has impacted my life in so many ways. Not only has it brought me immense joy, but it also has provided so many life blessings including having money to renovate our pool, being able to pay for our cars in cash, going on spontaneous vacations that would have otherwise been impossible, and being able to send both my boys to private school without hesitation. These are incredible blessings that I’m so grateful to Beachbody for making possible!
I think what Coaching really did for my future goals is give me the belief that anything I put my mind to, I can accomplish. There were several years of self-doubt where I lacked confidence in myself, and Coaching turned that around for me. I’ve watched people from all walks of life create incredible success for themselves with Beachbody Coaching simply because they believed they could and they hustled hard every day! I’m really proud to know that I’m able to identify myself with those people now.
In the words of my Team’s mission statement that guides us every day: We dreamed, we believed, and we achieved!
