Well, I don’t think anyone who reads this blog knows this, but you will now.
I have decided to step down as a Beachbody Coach for the time being. Some of you may wonder why. Others may be congratulating themselves and saying, “Ha! I knew he’d wise up to that MLM scam sooner or later!”
Honestly, my decision has nothing to do with Beachbody itself. I believe they have a good compensation plan, and I have met some people who do actually make their living at it. And no, these are NOT people who got on board with all their customers from a previous MLM.
I won’t go into the full-blown description of why, but I will say this much: sometimes you get into a business like this, and you risk winding up with an upline that you don’t see eye to eye with. At my day job I know I have no choice as to who my supervisor is. It may be someone I cannot stand but, in order to earn my paycheck, I need to suck it up and deal.
Not so with Beachbody. With them I don’t HAVE to stay with my upline, so I have chosen not to. Instead, I am going to go with someone who I have more in common with, who I click better with.
What this means is that this blog will shortly be getting a major overhaul. I plan on making it focus solely on WRITING.
ANY act of writing that I do will be covered here: it could be about my novels, short stories, scripts, my music, and even articles where I rant and rave about daily life. (I was tempted to do reviews here as well, but I would like to start using my Amazon affiliate links, which is a no no when you use Amazon’s free blog service.)
Martial arts and fitness will go on a paid-for blog. The reason behind that is related to the affiliate link thing again: when I DO sign up to be a Beachbody coach again, I want people to be able to sign up as team mates or coaches under me. This is not allowed on a free blog.
At any rate, I hope some of you are as excited about these changes as I am!
