From fall Shakeology recipes to wise words from Beachbody CEO, Carl Daikeler, we’ve gathered a robust list of tips and tricks as varied as a bag of Halloween candy. So dive in and use these fall treats to expand your business—not your waistline.

Coaches know best:

1) “Lead by example, with energy and enthusiasm. But don’t try to sell and don’t ‘want it’ more than they do.” – Jessica Vandeberghe

2) “If scheduling is an issue, work in 15 minute increments. 15 minutes of calls/emails, then laundry, 15 minutes of personal development, then dishes, etc.” – Joline Atkins

3) “Be firm in who you are and what you stand for. If you inspire one person, you did your job.” – Clarissa Lupton

4) “If you’re only in this business for money – you will always be empty. Your ‘Why; has to be bigger!” – Amber Scott

Inspiring words from the CEO:

5) “Never sell at the expense of the buyer.” – Carl Daikeler

6) “The more rejection you hear the stronger you will be to rejection. So get out there and practice. Don’t let the first answer be the only answer.” – Carl Daikeler

7) “It’s important that becoming a Coach is not an empty action. We need to get new Coaches engaged in the right behaviors. That’s our purpose.” – Carl Daikeler

8) “Shakeology supports the body in a completely different and sophisticated way. It’s your daily dose of dense nutrition. It’s the one thing you can do each day that shows your body you care.” – Carl Daikeler

9) “The point is not being a hard body or just an after photo. It’s about being an example of hard work and discipline.” – Carl Daikeler

Tips from Beachbody Headquarters:

10) Sharing Shakeology is easier than ever. Do you have customers who can’t commit to a flavor? Friends who want to try Shakeology but aren’t ready for a home direct order? Now you can overcome those objections with the new Shakeology taste sampler pack–available in the TBB shop. Time to get your taste buds dancing.

11) “Ask your upline sponsor or Diamond Coach about participating in an upcoming Coach Basics group.  Whether you are a new or existing Coach, you will benefit from the proven results of this training program.” – LeeAnne Ruff Senior Manager Training & Field Development

12) Use the new Chocolate/Vanilla combo box to blend up some fall-themed Shakeology recipes for your Halloween bash. When friends and family are impressed, encourage them to try it out for themselves.

13) New Coaches who achieve Success Starter status earn on average 7 TIMES MORE than other Coaches. That’s a stat you can’t argue with. So, check out the Success Starter program in the Online Office and find out how you can encourage your new Coaches to get involved.

14) “Customer Program leads are the cherry on top of a great business. Assigned Leads give your business a boost by immediately adding to your customer base. Learn how to qualify & connect today!” – Shelley Parise, Director of Lead Generation
