It surprises me to no end that people quit Beachbody Coaching, and really, most network marketing companies, as quickly as they sign-up. But after being a Beachbody Coach now for a year, becoming a 5 Star Diamond Coach within my first 12 months as a coach, I can tell you why people quit.
People Think They Work For Beachbody, and Deserve Pay Per Hour
Let's be honest here, most people thing that if they work 10 hours, they should be paid for those 10 hours of effort. Two problems here with Beachbody. The first, is you are a CEO of your business. You don't work for Beachbody. So if you expect to get paid per hour, you should go work for someone else. The reason people join Beachbody, is because they want to become their own boss, and make money that is reserved for business owners, CEO's.
The thing about business owners and CEO's, is that they work really hard for very little pay. They invest hundreds of thousands of dollars just to get started, and start hoping that they will make their money back in the next 3 to 5 years, and then start making money. This is the mentality that works very well with Beachbody. And it's actually much better!
With Beachbody, you can work very hard just for a month, and make back your initial investment. I would even argue you can make nothing, and still be ahead because you would get in the best shape of your life. The initial investment is nothing! And here in is the problem. Because the cost to get started is basically buying a workout, when it comes to making a business out of Beachbody, people don't put in the hours they would if they had mortgaged their house to get things moving.
People Aren't Happy With The Pay Upfront
The second part to this puzzle why people quit Beachbody Coaching, is because they don't get paid to start a business. They assume they should be making money as they build the business. They don't realize that business, and Beachbody Coaching is all about working hard for a few months, or a few years, for very little pay, in order to get paid an incredible amount of money at the end.
