How Can MLM Help a Health and Fitness Coach?


Amy Julien and Lisa Swift Notable Quotes

“So [MLM’s] gotten a bad name because, I think, they make false promises to people, like lavish lifestyles, getting rich quick, ‘oh  you’ve got to stack all this inventory and sell it.’ And it’s different today. It’s not easy, and it’s not a get rich quick scheme. It can be a very lucrative career if you’re serious.”
Lisa Swift

“When you’re selling a product, you have to be a product of the product…you want to believe in what you sell to be authentic. And you can’t be authentic when you don’t really know the experience, right?”
Amy Julien

“It’s going to work if you [put the work in]. You build relationships, help people, and you do this out of your heart of something you would do even if you think it paid a dime. That’s what’s going to bring you in the money.”
Lisa Swift


Episode Summary

            As fitness coaches, I’m pretty sure that we’ve all had at least one experience with MLM—be it being sold to or being recruited into. It’s importance to recognize that there is a stigma around MLM, understandably so especially if our prior experiences with them aren’t that great.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to fitness coaches Amy Julien and Lisa Swift who happen to be thriving in their MLM business. They’re reaping the benefits of not just the added income but also the benefits of building relationships and boosted health through their products, and they’re going to help us dispel the stigma around MLM and maybe even convince us into looking into joining an MLM company.
