The Katie and Chad Graue Story
Chad and I just recently celebrated our 15-year wedding anniversary. For years, we’ve been loving parents of two children, professionals in our fields, and . . . in credit card debt. So, yeah. We know what it means to struggle balancing our roles in the home as a providers, cheerleaders, parents, and spouses.
When it comes down to it, we’re all about family. Spending quality time with the family has always been our number one priority, but a few years ago it became clear that our demanding work schedule was getting in the way.
Chad worked as a pharmacist, and I work in pharmacy retail. Between 2% raises and pay freezes, we felt like we weren’t making any financial progress. Our only plan for making more money was to work more hours. We picked up extra shifts, extra jobs, and starting taking turns working on the weekends—I was even working evenings and holidays.
We wanted to plan our work time around our family time, rather than plan our family time around our work time. So when we discovered the chance to be our own bosses with an uncapped earning potential though the Beachbody Coaching opportunity, we went all in. This was exactly what we were looking for!
Chad got great results with P90X, and I got great results with Slim in 6, so the mission of the company already resonated with us. But when I saw my commission check from Beachbody jump up 600% in one week—my eyes were opened to the true potential of the business and what that could mean for our family.
One year later, Chad was able to reduce his workweek at the pharmacy, and six months after that, he retired from pharmacy altogether—going full-time Beachbody Coach. I, myself, have plans to retire by the end of this year. To be able to work from home, schedule our own hours, and have room for more financial growth is such a blessing.
Chad always says that this is a family business. And it’s so true!
Because of Beachbody, the four of us are able to do so much more as a family.
No longer do I have to miss out on school plays and field trips because of my work schedule. As a parent, these are moments with your kids that you can never get back—and now, these are moments I never have to give up.
Coaching has allowed us to continually work toward owning 100% of our day. It’s allowed us to prioritize our marriage and the relationships we have with our kids.
With Beachbody, Chad and I get to work together from home. We can be present for our children and spend precious one-on-one time with them. We can pay off our mortgage, get out of debt, and save for our children’s college funds.
Beachbody Coaching has allowed us more freedom—freedom of time, freedom of money, and freedom to be the parents we always wanted to be.
