HOW I GET PAID TO GET FIT
My name is Andrea Otley. I’m a horse crazy, ranching wife and mom of three kids from a small ranching town in SE Oregon. I found a way to support my horse habit by earning four extra paychecks a month online, while I get in the best shape of my life.
Five years ago, we were swimming in credit card debt. We were buying things we couldn’t afford, trying to live a lifestyle we hadn’t earned. I wanted a new living quarters horse trailer so we financed it, they were only payments right? We wanted to rodeo so we entered, hoping to win big. That never went well. Our bad financial choices put a strain on our marriage. Times were tough.
I knew there must be a better way. Other people were doing what they wanted, why couldn’t we?
A chance to earn money from home while getting fit and healthy came my way. A friend was earning money to pay off debts while she lost her baby weight and got in the best shape of her life. I was curious so I reached out to her. I asked her if I could make enough to help pull us out of the financial mess we’d made. I’ll never forgot her response and all her exclamation points - “Of course!!!”
Not only did I earn enough to dig us out of our hole, we are now completely debt free, have enough money to rodeo and show horses, and I’m in the best shape of my life.
The company I partner with is in the fitness and nutrition business. I started using their in home workouts and following their meal plans to lose the baby weight and keep it off. I loved my results so much - lost over 30 lbs. and 3 pants sizes, the healthy way without being hungry, gained more confidence and energy - I share what I'm doing with others. In 12 months, I was earning $500 a week working part time hours. Now, my team is expanding and I'm looking for other motivated, driven people who want a way to fulfill their purpose and passion in life. Does that sound like you?
I want to tell you exactly how this works:
- Why people join our team
- What about start up costs?
- Why people don't join our team
- What kind of business is this
- About the company
- How you get started
- Your daily disciplines
- How you earn the money
- What are the next steps?
WHY PEOPLE JOIN OUR TEAM
- Most of the people who join our team get a clear picture of what this business can do for them. They expect to get in the best shape of their lives and be held accountable to their own health and fitness goals.
- They get support, motivation, encouragement and inspiration when they feel like quitting, they have a built in team of people to really lift them up.
- They get the chance to earn an extra paycheck a week working only part time hours from home
- The only tools they ever need are a smart phone and a computer, no inventory to worry about.
WHAT ABOUT START UP COST?
There’s an old saying, "You never get something for nothing." Just like any business there is definitely a start up cost.
Before I go over costs, I want to share a quick story as a reference point. My husband and I wanted to go into business for ourselves a few years ago. He loves trucks, he has his CDL and we decided to get in the livestock transportation business. This just means we bought a semi truck, a cow trailer and went in way over our heads in debt to get started. We borrowed over $75,000 just to put our name on the truck and pull it out of the driveway to go haul our first load of cows. And then there were all the permits, licenses, insurances, fees and fuel required to get started. We saw first hand starting your own business can be very expensive and very risky.
Starting your own business in the traditional world is a HUGE commitment. You might be thinking, "Wow, I’d love the freedom of working for myself but I could never take on that kind of responsibility." Yes, it takes a lot of commitment and courage to start a new business.
What makes THIS BUSINESS unique -- Yes, there is a start up cost. But it is not thousands of dollars. For people to get started, their only investment is what it takes to start their own health and fitness transformation which is just $140-$199 depending on the program that suits your needs. So clearly $140 compared to $75,000 or more, is really nothing. I know it's not pocket change but my family has a hard time walking out of Costco or Walmart spending less than $140…
WHY PEOPLE DON'T JOIN OUR TEAM
- One reason people don’t join our team is they don’t make the clear connection of what this business is and how it can change their current situation. If they'd like to improve their life, if they are looking for more fulfillment, if they need to get in better shape, if they need to lose weight and get healthy, they just can’t see how this is going to help them do that. I want to paint the clear picture for you.
- The other reason people don't sign up is times are just too tough and they can’t come up with the $140 right now.
So there you go! I laid it all out there for you. So what I’m going to do next is take a few minutes to run you through the facts of our home business. My job is to share the details, your job is to get a feel for whether or not this is something you can see yourself doing. Sound fair?
WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS IS THIS?
(You already do it, you're just not getting paid...YET!)
First, I want to give you an explanation this industry. Everyday, we are buying and using products and services we love. We buy food, clothes, tack, feed. We go to the movies, we eat out at restaurants. We find products we love and I mean absolutely love. We share our favorites with our friends. We post pictures on social media, do status updates, tell people all about it!
"Word of mouth" advertising is one of the most powerful advertising methods ever. This is why many businesses invest so much in making sure we have a good experiences as a customers. Because when we share our good experience with our friends we drive them more customers which means more money and making more money is what business is all about!
Let's think about this for a second! How much did the company pay us for driving them more customers?? NOTHING! Not even a thank you card. But not all businesses are created equal.
Welcome to the powerful world of peer to peer marketing. There are businesses that understand the power behind word of mouth advertising. They cut down on expenses such as tv commercials, printed ads, billboards, and even physical store buildings.
When they save, they pass the savings on to us. Through something called the compensation plan. Here’s how it works. Our company gives us the opportunity to represent them as independent entities. Our partnership lets us benefit from the compensation plan. We are compensated for sharing their products and services to our friends. Our friends invite others to do the same. They get some cash and we get a little bit more. In essence, peer to peer marketing is a strategy that compensates us not only for the sales we personally generate but also for the sales of those we bring on.
And because it is considered a home based business we don’t have to quit our day jobs to earn extra cash, unless we really wanted to. In fact according to the Direct Sales Association, an estimated 15.6 million people in the U.S. are involved in peer to peer marketing, which means it’s hear to stay!

HOW YOU GET STARTED
We help you pick the right fitness program for you based on what you tell us you want to accomplish. The most important first step is to start using the products right away. While you’re getting busy getting fit, we help you get trained. There are two parts of our training.
- Part One -- What the Company Provides: training guides on all products, informational and instructional videos for getting set up, sales and marketing tools, everything you need to be successful and more. There’s a lot of info in the beginning and we don’t expect you to be an expert. You don’t need to be! We are here to help you. We help you break the learning down in bight size chunks encouraging you to review the info when you can, maybe 15-30 minutes a day.
- Part 2 - On the Job training: The fun part! This truly is an "earn as you learn" style of business. We work very closely with you in the beginning to create instant success for you. We help you learn the skills to effectively start conversations with people, so you feel confident sharing your new adventure. We let you listen in as we talk to people so you can get a first hand feel for how it’s done. Team culture and working together are very important to us.
YOUR DAILY ACTIVITIES
We know in this business consistency is king. You don’t have to be an expert or perfect at this. One of our favorite saying is “done is better than perfect.” That’s because a few actions completed consistently over time leads to extraordinary results.
Here are an overview of our daily disciplines:
- Be Proof the Products Work. We do our workouts everyday and follow the nutrition plan. Our mission is to feel great and look great so it’s easy to share what we’re doing to get in great shape!
- Connect with People. We understand how sharing what we are doing with others encourages them to get in great shape too! We make a point to visit with a few people each day just to let them know we just found a way to get in great shape and we love what we are doing. We are NOT salespeople. During your training, you learn to properly share, not sell.
- Personal Development. We constantly work to improve our skills and our mindset. We know in order to achieve something we’ve never had before, we have to learn to do things we’ve never done before. So we commit to constant personal growth through learning and practicing new skills every day. We help you choose the right books, audio and video and encourage you to spend 30 minutes a day working on yourself.
- Recognition. We continually reward each other for a job well done. We look for ways to let people know they are doing a great job.
HOW DO YOU EARN THE MONEY?
In my first 12 months of the business, I was earning $500 a week working part time hours and it changed our lives! Here's how I did it: I found 3-5 people each month, supported them through their fitness program in Fitness Challenge Groups and I focused on leading by example. I literally got paid to get fit! I get paid retail commissions weekly. I also found others who wanted to do what I was doing and earn money getting fit, too. As our team grows, so does our residual income, through weekly team cycle bonuses. Team cycle bonuses are paid out based on how others on the team are helping others achieve their goals and live healthy fulfilling lives. CLICK HERE to see the highlights of the compensation plan.
All I did was commit to those daily disciplines. If I can do it, so can you. My job is to show you how and help you along the way. Just like my coach does for me.
Want to hear my annual earnings for a real-life example? Okay, I’ll only share with you if you promise to remember if I can do this, so can you! And understand that I mess up ALL THE TIME! I forget to get back to people, I say the wrong things, I feel like a failure, I beat myself up, I'm scared to talk to people, I miss workouts, I eat burgers and fries and candy bars. But I keep going. And I still just do those same 3 things I did in the beginning….
2016: $70,000+ (I still need to go back and add them up!)
Wanna know something else cool? I work total part time hours. I'm there when my kids get home from school. I'm there when they go to school in the mornings. I get to see their school plays and programs and basketball games. I get my nails and hair done, during the middle of the day. I go brand calves and help feed and help ship and turn out. I go on cool trips to Disney World and Cancun for free. I get to be in the best shape of my life. I get to train and show my horses. I get to hang out with the most incredible people in the world, people who are fun and kind and caring and believe like I believe, that there must be a better way! I'm SO glad I said yes to joining this company on April 16, 2012. It changed my life.
I'm building MY dream. I don't work for someone else to help build theirs.
