People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.

We are surrounded by the news of financial meltdown. The credit crisis has yet to find its way through the system to the majority of us. And while I'm no economist, I believe that as the effects of the current crisis and the tight debt markets find their way to "Main street", there will be another wave of defaults, but this time in credit card debt, and we'll be looking at another series of "bail out" scenarios.
So you might be thinking, "What the heck do I do to survive this?"
The answer is, get productive. I have read many accounts of people who managed to build fortunes during recessions, even during the depression era. That's the safety of working with creativity, especially in an area that people truly need no matter what the financial picture.
That's what we have at Beachbody. Our product is not frivolous - this is something that will change the quality of life for everyone who participates. The health care crisis, which costs us billions upon billions of dollars, can be traced to choices, not to economics. When we lead healthier lives, we reduce the cost of health care to ourselves and our society. That is not something that will disappear during a rough economy, but something that will become even more important.
And to be in a position of offering that kind of opportunity for just $39.95, an opportunity that can generate hundreds if not thousands of dollars a month if you work it hard, is ideal - especially when times are tough.
Fortune favors persistence, regardless of the environment around us. We will continue to be smart and creative. And we will continue to help people. When anyone wonders why you are feeling so good and your financial situation is so solid when everyone else is struggling, tell them that you never quit, and you never stopped believing that helping people was worth the effort.
Now is the time to be productive!
