I consider myself very lucky to be on a team with some great leaders. Mike Ryan is our “head honcho” on Team Victory – the leader of leaders – and just this past Thursday achieved the highest rank possible in Team Beachbody – 15-Star Diamond aka SUPERSTAR DIAMOND!! He’s also been an Elite coach two years running, and was a top 10 coach in 2010.
I had a chance to chat with Mike and asked him to share how he has become so successful.
1) Tell me about how you first became involved with Team Beachbody and the coaching opportunity.
I got involved with Team Beachbody after finding P90X on TV. My wife and I were getting killer results with the program, so getting involved made sense. We were in a tough time in life financially due to the real estate market crash of 2008. As it turned out, we lost everything we owned that year. But we also lost weight and built muscle, and the coolest thing to lose that year was my snoring problem.
2) What do you think are the 3 key reasons why you have been successful?
The top three things I attribute my success to is being consistent & persistent, goal oriented and I treat this business like I have my family’s financial future on the line rather than treating it like a $40 business. Consistency is extremely important as nothing happens overnight in life change. No one can gain or lose 100 pounds overnight or make a million bucks or climb Everest but the consistent, persistent decisions we make over time add up to whatever you want.
3) What is the first thing you would tell new coaches to do?
The first thing I tell my new coaches is to get involved as much as possible, attend all the events, calls, etc. They need to follow my system because I know what I’m doing and I’m going down the successful path. If they want to match me step for step, I’m here to lead them. If they want to go down a different path, that’s fine, you’ll get my heart you just won’t get my time. I’m here to teach people how to inspire others by sharing their own journey/testimony/experiences and that of others. It’s crucial for people to know that we are in the personal relationship business. It’s all about finding out what the other person wants and needs and helping them get there!
The net result of what we do is job creation and preventative health care. You could run a presidential campaign on those two things because they are two of the most important things in our lives.
** Mike also made a point of telling me that he answered these questions sitting by the pool, watching his kids and their friends swim in the afternoon sun! That’s the beauty of being self-employed!Mike & Kelley Ryan
