This Is Not Your Father's Home Based
from Carl Daikeler - CEO of Team BeachBody
began paying commissions on sales of Beachbody products to our customers, with
an incentive for them to bring in additional reps to spread the word, the only
customer complaints pertained to the seedy reputation of other multi-level
marketers as a "pyramid scheme".
That reputation is largely due to the millions
of families who are still stuck with inventory of soap, pills, and water
filters from business ventures of the past, and the pressure to effectively
become the sales manager to your own friends and family members. After just six
months of operation, I can proudly say, we are none of any of that. We are
promoters of health and fitness. And for the people who get in and get active
Million Dollar Body,
the opportunity is anything but "traditional" network marketing, but with every
bit of potential for financial reward.
Actually, I think I've probably offended more
network marketers than we've signed up because of my convictions. (I sometimes
speak my mind a little too freely. Ask me about the "Pyruvate Incident"
sometime.) The reason we may not be immediately attractive to network marketing
heavyweights is our commitment to making this home based business opportunity
about getting people healthy and active - FOR REAL! That in itself is a
multi-billion dollar opportunity if we stay focused on the real goal. The fact
that I won't pitch the money potential first and the health benefits second
makes me look foolish to those who have made their big bucks hawking business
opportunities. The fact that we don't require people to invest thousands of
dollars in inventory looks counter-intuitive to the folks who are used just to
selling "the next hot breakthrough". But imagine how many millions of people
who need a friend to lend them a hand in getting more active would appreciate
something that could also earn them an extra income! THAT'S OPPORTUNITY with
And that's why this concept and the Beachbody
faithful who are helping it grow are so special. Exercise will NEVER go out of
style. No drug can replace exercise. No electrical stimulation device can make
it easier. If you want your body to work and feel good, you need to use it, or
you will feel the consequences sooner than you expect. Eating right is simple.
We show you how to achieve it. That has value to everyone around you. We are
committed to helping people understand how to do it. That is the word we are
spreading. Beachbody customer complaints generally stem from those who didn't
have the support or accountability to stay with the program they purchased.
Body changes all that by connecting people together in a "network" of
support. That's the revolution that we're committed to creating here! The
miraculous stories of people who rediscover exercise and how their lives change
because of it is the heart of what we do. The financial opportunity and how it
has already helped people pay off their mortgages, pay for their kids school,
or buy the car they always wanted are also incredible and meaningful. The two
go hand in hand with what is so substantial about this opportunity.
The other day in a meeting I made a point
about how I would pitch this if I could be a coach. I wouldn't whip out photos
of the new car my commissions bought me, or the flat screen TV being installed
at the house thanks to my rank advancements, I would show my before and after
photos, and tell my friend that they can do it too if they make a simple "20 in
"I hear you complaining about your energy,
about how your clothes fit, and how you don't like the way your body looks...
If you want to change all that, I promise you, you can. And it can generate an
income for you too. If you want to get results, I will help you; All you need
to do is promise me two things: (1) Get started on something: Sign up, pick a
program, and do at least 20 workouts in 30 days. And (2) Pass it on: Ask two
people whose health you care about to do the same thing. That's it. If you
don't see results in those 30 days, you can quit and get the money back for the
product. But I know you will see results, and your life will change. And people
will ask you if you're on a diet. And you'll tell them about this. And you will
be in business. That's how easy things happen when you make that simple
decision: Commit to at least 20 workouts in 30 days. All you need to do right
now is stop thinking about it, and make those two promises to me: Get started,
and pass it on."
Will some of our coaches make a lot of money
by signing up, getting two more to sign up, and qualifying to help support our
customers to get success? Absolutely. And some won't make a thing or care about
it. They'll do it so they can feel the same thing I get to feel every day I get
a success story email.
We're entering a period of very dramatic
growth. The lead pool is going to accelerate in the next few months. The
coaches who get in now and share our vision of helping people get healthy are
the ones who deserve the financial rewards. The kind of coaches I want to help
us build this will be a positive force of health and peer support, and they
will reap the rewards. I don't care if you wear a tie (I don't), I don't care
if you spend your money on toys or education, I don't care if you walk, jog, or
crush P90X. All I care about is that you get healthy, and that you contact your
coaches and customers from time to time to help them stay accountable to their
plan as well.
You are the elite, and together we're changing
the state of health in this country!
