“Success Club has helped me grow my business exponentially and sets the example for my Coaches to follow.” – Hillary Kelly
Hillary Kelly: Success Club Confidential
By Network Writer, Howard Shapiro
Top Coach, Elite Coach, Top Recruiter?they’re just a few of 14 Star Diamond Coach Hillary Kelly’s illustrious accomplishments. So who better to chat about how to use Success Club to rocket your business to the top? It’s a must read for any Coach looking to give their business a shot of adrenaline.
Still basking in the glow of the latest Chairman’s Club Adventure trip to France, Hillary Kelly settles in. She’s tired, but she’s ready to get back to work. And luckily for Hillary, work these days can be done from the privacy of her own home.
It was only a few years ago that she was facing a familiar dilemma for so many stay-at-home moms: how to find work that would allow time and flexibility to take care of the kids?as well as herself.
It all began to change for Hillary when a friend told her about Beachbody‘s ChaLEAN Extreme fitness program. She decided to try it.
The results were startling.
She lost over 70 pounds and 60 inches in less than a year and went from a size 14 to a size 4?and all after having her second son via C-section. “People wanted to know what I was doing, and it boosted my self-confidence,” she says.
Then, while looking for Chalene Johnson on Facebook, Hillary found more than another friend to add to her list. “My Sponsor, Christine Dwyer, reached out and introduced me to the business,” she recalls. “The rest, as they say, is history.”
“I initially signed up just to get a discount on the products!”
Hillary remembers the early days and how she got out of the gate quickly. “I’m not a nutrition expert, but I started with the simple approach of sharing my story both in person and on Facebook,” she says. “I think people responded to that.”
“I never felt like a salesperson at all,” Hillary goes on. “I had no agenda, except to help people get fit. If you break it down, that’s what this business is all about.”
The idea of “helping people” would become her mantra?and a key behind her success. By listening to people’s needs and recommending Beachbody products like Shakeology, Hillary hit Emerald in just two weeks. And for an encore, she went Diamond at three months. “It exceeded my expectations,” she says. “And I was helping people physically, mentally, and financially.”
The true defining moment, however, didn’t come until the six-month mark.
“I saw my name on the Success Club Leader Board.”
“It completely opened my eyes and changed everything,” she says. “I had set Success Club 10 as a benchmark, so it felt really good to see I was hitting my goal. At that moment, everything suddenly became very real for me.”
So real, that Hillary has hit Success Club 10 every month she has been in the business. In fact, she finished 2010 at #2 on the Leader Board. “Success Club has helped me grow my business exponentially, and it sets the example for my Coaches to follow,” she says.
“I’m not in competition with anyone but myself.”
Hillary told me she uses Success Club as a monthly barometer. “You have to set small, attainable goals for yourself,” she explains. “If you work your business every day and don’t look too far ahead, you won’t get overwhelmed.”
So what would Hillary tell a new Coach trying to emulate her level of consistency in Success Club?
She pauses thinking this over.
“Start by making it your goal to hit Success Club 5 every single month,” she advises. “The worst that will happen is you will grow your business in the process. What’s wrong with that?” Hillary adds, “There’s no quick fix or magic pill. For me, it’s about being consistent every day and working the Game Plan. I share the powerful benefits of Shakeology with people and encourage them to try it.”
“The Success Club trips are first class?just like Beachbody!”
Hillary talks about her once-in-a-lifetime biking adventure in the south of France. “It was 100 times better than I could have expected. They took such great care of us,” she says. “Every place we went was breathtaking. The scenery was straight out of a Van Gogh painting.”
You could hear the enthusiasm in her voice when she described the bonding that happened between Coaches. “It felt incredible to be part of a big family,” she says. “To feel that kind of camaraderie was so unique and special. I also loved connecting and hearing stories from the Coaches. We all do the business slightly different, so it was great to hear their ideas.”
Another Success Club trip Hillary won’t soon forget was the Oasis of the Seas in March. “I was able to bring my two kids,” she says about her pride and joy. “They got to see Beachbody firsthand and loved meeting Shaun T.”
“I’m amazed and humbled every day to be part of this business.”
“Now I can do things without blinking that previously would have taken forever to save for,” Hillary beams. “For example, I was able to take my kids to Disney World and I can devote 100% of my time to them?that’s the best part. Beachbody has allowed me the chance to live without worry.”
“The rewards of this business are endless,” she continues with the assurance of a woman whose life has been forever changed. “It isn’t about being Top Coach, Top Recruiter, or selling the most Shakeology. It’s about reaching out to people one on one and helping them live the life they always wanted.”
It’s that type of refreshing attitude that has made Hillary a certified success. And after talking with her for a while, I got the feeling she’s the same person today she was before this little thing called Beachbody entered her life?down to Earth.
“I do the same things every day that a new Coach starting the business would do,” she says. “I just try to be genuine and help people without expecting anything in return. I’m a big believer in paying it forward.”
Follow the Game Plan?it will serve as the blueprint for your business and help you get the most out of Success Club.
Stay consistent. Coaches struggle when they treat this like a hobby. Treat your business like a business and work at it ever day.
Aim for Success Club 5. Before you know it, you’ll be on your way to Success Club 10!
Help people without expecting anything in return.
Make sure to stay committed to the business for at least one year.
Plug into all meetings and phone calls. Missing even one can mean missing a valuable nugget that can help your business grow.
