I am at a crossroads in my life and hoping I can figure my way through the intersection rather quickly.
I recently put my resume online and then was contacted by an insurance company that sounded promising, so I quickly studied and passed the state licensing exam and headed out to Chicago for 10 days of training.
Then reality hit when I realized within 3 weeks that what they spoke about in Chicago was nothing like the real world of trying to sell supplemental insurance to people who really aren’t interested. I tried, and maybe could have tried harder, but it just wasn’t me. I have been stressed, my mind consumed with my lack of sales, and a general malaise brought about by all my stressing.
So today I decided I would leave the company and focus all of my attention on getting healthy and fit using the knowledge I already have. I am a Beachbody coach, but have not been working the business, or working out. I have the tools I need to make a difference in my own life, then I will adapt that into making a difference in others’ lives through coaching.
I know I am an excellent teacher and love sharing what I know with those wanting to hear me. No more, “Not interested, or I have enough insurance,” but more like, “How did you do that and might that work for me?”
Tutoring my local schoolkids will help a little bit with the bills, but I may need to find something else to fill the void while I get up and running. Maybe even literally!
