Isn’t it great having a partner to work out with? You seem to push a little harder, sweat a little more, and somehow find that extra gear to kick it up a notch. You motivate and inspire each other, keep each other accountable, and it can even produce a little friendly competition. The point is: you get more done!
Well, having the right success partner for your Team Beachbody business can do wonders for you as well. Finding someone to align yourself with who has goals like you and sees things the way you do, and who will make you stretch for more, can make a huge difference. The right partner will help you stay motivated, engaged, and keep you accountable and on track toward achieving your goals. And you will do the same for them.
While the right partner can help you progress faster, the wrong partner could slow you down. So, when choosing a success partner, keep these things in mind:
- Look for someone who has the same—or a greater—commitment level as you.
- Make sure your schedules are similar enough so that you can both communicate easily.
- Most importantly, choose someone who shares your business goals.
You may have to try it out with a few people, as it may not happen on your first go-round (after all, chemistry is important), but understand—it will be worth it!
This is a relationship business and a team sport. It’s a place where you form lasting relationships and bonds that just don’t come along every day. My business partner, whom I started with over a decade ago, became, and still is, my best friend. The successful business we built could never have been accomplished as a solo act.
Working together means winning together, and when you find the right partner to work with, what you’ll find is that 1 + 1 adds up to a lot more than 2, and the advantages are boundless.
