As a military spouse, I am used to making sacrifices… my husband just got home from a 7 month deployment. Even when he is home, there are still a lot of nights when I go to bed alone because he is on a night flying mission. We have spent 2 of our 12 wedding anniversaries together, he has missed half of our daughters birthdays and he wasn’t home for Christmas this year.
But as a military spouse, there are also perks that I get to take advantage of. I’ve flown space A to multiple countries plus Hawaii (a few times!). I’m a Florida resident (where I pay no state taxes) even though I live in Oklahoma. I get to shop at the commissary. And I get discounts from a lot of places – restaurants, stores, etc. And while I’d gladly give up any of those discounts in order to have had my husband home for my son’s first birthday, I’ll take it as an appreciation for all that I sacrifice as a military spouse.
One of the things I love about Beachbody is that they offer a discount for military coaches – and it’s not a little one that barely covers the tax. It’s 25% – which is $32.50 off your monthly Shakeology order! That’s a pretty big deal, especially in military families where money is normally tight.
Here’s how it works:
As an active duty military member or the spouse of an active duty military member, you can sign up as a Beachbody “coach” for FREE – your initial sign up fee is waived, as well as the monthly coaching fees. There are no sales requirements and no hidden fees – you can just buy what you want, when you want, for a 25% discount. How much is this worth? Well for a family ordering just one bag of Shakeology a month, you’ll save almost $400.
Then, if you want to, and ONLY IF you want to, you can also build a pretty profitable business as a military coach.
I’ll be honest – I signed up for the discount. I never intended to coach. Honestly, I didn’t like to work out, and guess what? I still don’t. It’s what I consider a necessary evil. But I started drinking Shakeology, and I loved that. For a person who ate as poorly as I did, it was a big improvement in my diet and it made a huge difference in the way I felt. So after a while, I started telling my friends about it. I wasn’t trying to sell it, I was just telling my friends about something awesome! But then they wanted to buy it, and I was a coach, so why not help them out, right?
It didn’t take me too long to figure out I could make a significant income working part time as a coach. I earned 25% on anything I sold PLUS a team cycle bonus for building a team underneath me. As a military spouse, I told my military friends about the product and they wanted to try it too… so it didn’t take too long to start building a successful team made up of my friends and my husbands coworkers. The first month I decided to “sell,” I easily covered the cost of my Shakeology – so I wasn’t just getting a discount, I was getting it for free! And my income continued to grow…
I remember saying to my husband one day “Honey, do you realize that this WEEK I made more than you used to make in a month as a senior airman?”
That was more than a year ago, and my income has doubled since then. Military spouses are retiring their husbands on the income they have made with the free coaching opportunity from Beachbody.
The military coaching opportunity has been a HUGE blessing for our family. I’m able to stay at home with my kids, work part time and build a business online that I can take with me anywhere we move. I don’t have to do parties and spend evenings away from my family, in fact, I work primarily when my kids are sleeping. And when my husband retires in 5 years, he will have the option to do whatever he wants because our Beachbody income will surpass what he currently makes servings his country and risking his life daily… and honestly, after 20 years, I think he deserves that.
