How this Girl Boss travels the world & earns money from a wifi connection

Travel the world and make money online
-
Q - So Jacqueline tell us about what is it that you do?
I am a virtual online health & fitness coach and business mentor. 
-
Q - Where did this journey begin for you & what did it mean at the time? 
It all started at my first cubicle job out of college. I felt like I had no control over my life working for the 'man' so I wanted to take the reigns somehow. I did that by joining a virtual nutrition & fitness challenge with my friend. I transformed my health and felt compelled to pay it forward to others.
-
Q - Did this new platform offer you the opportunity to learn more about how to run a business?
Absolutely. I joined Beachbody (the company I partner with) just to get in shape, but once I got results and felt amazing I knew I had to pay it forward. Beachbody gives you so many tools to run a business online via social media.

Q - Do you believe that you need to love the business you're in, in order to succeed?
Absolutely. If you are not loving what you are doing each and every day--whats the point? Life is too short to be anything less than happy. If work is 80% of our lives, you better damn well love it. 
-
Q - So you work solely online, do you sometimes feel like you're lacking that face to face interaction or do you also have a lot of face to face meetings?
At times, YES! I'm what you would call an outgoing introvert. I am pretty outgoing but I do love time to myself and being with those I'm close with. Social media is a great way for me to connect with SO many more people than is physically possible face to face. I'm lucky that my team and customers are somewhat local so we try to get together often! 
-
Q - Let's say I'd like to become a coach but I'm not based in the US, is it possible for me to join the programme?
Perfect timing...Beachbody is currently available in USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. But this very weekend we are expanding international which is LONG overdue. So stay tuned...

Q - Is there a start up cost to do this type of business?
I have heard of other network marketing companies that have start up costs up to $5000. I cannot believe it! With Beachbody, you only invest in the tools that would make you healthy and fit--the business part is free. Which is a STEAL. The tool kit you'll need is only $140 which gives you meal plans, Shakeology (our superfood shake), an at home workout program and recipe book! 
-
Q - There's always a catch in these kind of businesses, what's the catch with yours?
That this is NOT a get rich quick scheme. You cannot have the millennial mentality when it comes to coaching. I could be selling wraps, artificial shakes or waist trainers but that would not fulfill me every day. I am changing peoples habits for life and seeing them transform from the inside out. Its hard work to believe in someone enough until they believe in themselves--but its SO much more rewarding.

Q - Tell us why you love your job & why you'd recommend this to others?
I wake up every day with purpose and excited to do my job. The best feeling ever is when a customer tells me they fit into jeans that didn't fit before. Or when a coach on my team is able to quit their full time job and live a life of freedom. I recommend it to others because of the freedom and true change that is taking place each and every day. 
-
Q - How many people do you have in your team & has that taught you about team motivating & managing?
In my organization I have 700+ people as coaches. Being a leader is HARD but thanks to Personal Development (books/audios about business and mindset) I have learned a lot. The biggest takeaway is that every person reacts or is motivated by different things, so you really have to be in tune and get to know your team so that you can help them best and push them out of their comfort zone for their goals.

Q - Do you have a boss or are you solely your own boss?
I am absolutely my own boss. 
-
Q - So you travel a lot with your job, tell us why and where have you been so far?
I love my job because I get to travel FOR work events (such as New Orleans, Cancun, Jamaica, Bahamas, Vegas, Cali and end of this month I earned a free trip to Punta Cana). And then of course I can travel while I do my day to day work as well! I have worked on my business all over the world: London, Paris, Thailand, St Maarten and currently in Jackson Hole for the past 2 months.
-
Q - What advice would you give to someone who's not sure what kind of business they'd like to get into? Or they simply have no clue where to go for an idea?
Think of what you are already passionate about. What can you NOT shut up about? Cooking? A hobby? In this day and age you can build a business online with anything and it's possible. You need a good mentor and must show up even when you don't feel like it some days. My business mentors and gurus I follow are people like Chalene Johnson, Gary Vaynerchuk and Eric Worre.

Q - Let's say I'm a procrastinator & I also come up with a lot of excuses as to why I haven't yet delivered my big idea. How would you encourage me to get started?
Action over fear. You're going to have the same life you have today if your actions don't change. I always ask my team what their goals are and WHY's are. I notate them, and if I witness them making excuses it is my job as a coach to remind them of their why. I'm not a coach to be people's friends...I'm a coach to get people to their goals. 
-
Q - What has been the most challenging part of your business?
Investing time in people you thought were ALL IN, rocking the business and having them completely ghost or quit. You can't want something for someone more than they want it for themselves. I've had to set up emotional barriers because it's equivalent to a break up any time this happens. 
-
 Q - What's the biggest highlight in your business so far?
I started working in this business while I was still working full time. The highlight was most definitely when I was able to quit my full time job and work Beachbody full time (I was actually working for my dad!) and then also seeing my sister be able to do the same. Now we work together from all over the world as girl bosses!

Q - Would you recommend others to get involved in the brand you work in & why?
I did my research on the other health and fitness companies out there. The reason I chose to partner with Beachbody is because we are not asking people to drink 3 shakes a day and protein bar and expect results. Or throw on a wrap and expect your habits that got you to where you are to change. We are asking you to do actual WORK (working out and actually cooking) over time, consistently to see results. Its hard, really hard. But in my experience, the hard work gives me results that make me feel PROUD and accomplished, rather than something that was easy to achieve. Not only that, but these are habits that will stick with you in the long run :)
