I began training at a local gym in Dothan, AL (Synergy Health & Fitness) where I had my first personal trainer, participated in group fitness that nearly kicked my butt every morning, and I still was just lacking motivation to keep going until my sister came home from college for the summer and joined me with training. I would think to myself, I'm not going to quit training because my sister is going to keep going... & I am not a quitter! Well, it was time for her to go back to college and she was ending her training for the summer. I thought to myself I would just quit also but then I was offered a job part-time working the front desk. I thought to myself, I am not going to be out of shape with all these fit people walking around here. So I started meal prepping, training, busting my butt, and even drove 45 minutes to my workouts that would start at 5:30 AM. I was determined, focused, and now had a drive behind me to be better, look better, and train harder.
Once I began implementing health and fitness with my first multilevel marketing company, ViSalus Sciences, my team and I were nominated as one of the top 5 in the nation for transformations. I strategically built my business from the web. I started my Instagram account when I was with ViSalus when I was in California, where I made my first post. I was able to travel the world with my friends and family, had more money in my bank account than ever, and I found happiness in this, but I never realized what was truly missing... which was my happiness found in Jesus Christ. I didn't tithe, pay it forward, or even really treat people with respect. I thought I had it all, when I really was completely empty.
