At Abia Health, when it comes to spouses, you can be the only one who works your business, work one business as a team under one account, or you can sign your spouse under you as a member of your team.
Now, I get this question a lot “should I sign up my husband/wife under me?”
There is no correct answer to this. Each person/family should do what is right for THEM. Yes Abia Health will allow you to enroll your spouse under you and you can each have your own team and customers. There are however pros and cons to this method that I will lay out for you so that you can make the best decision for you and your family.
PROs of Enrolling Your Spouse
If you enroll your spouse as a member of your team you will earn more than if it were just you – assuming you are putting customer sand team member sunder your spouse’s account.
I am shocked at how many Achievers do not understand this aspect of the compensation plan and earning money in your business… volume and commission. So many Achievers are leaving money on the table each week by not understanding how this works and how to capitalize on working their spouse account while working their own. My husband will become a second 6 figure earning income stream very easily and very fast because of what I am about to share with you.
Say that I were to sign “Mary” to my team and she buys a Starter Pack. In the compensation plan I would earn 10% off of Mary’s volume and $25 from her Starter Pack purchase. In this same scenario, if I were to sign Mary under my husband’s account instead of direct to me my husband would earn $25 on her starter package plus 10% on her volume each month AND I would earn 7% of her volume each month plus $10 on her starter pack.
So you can see monetarily it makes sense because you can be building quite a nice family income stream!
CONs of Enrolling Your Spouse
Now, yes signing you spouse is a great thing but there are some drawbacks to this method as well that you should be aware of. First you will each need to maintain the minimum $72.00 per month in personal purchases to be eligible for commissions and bonuses and incentives.
Another drawback is that unless your spouse is working this directly with you, you will be trying to manage two accounts and decide where to have people purchase or join the team. One business it a lot of work and it needs your focus and dedication – two can make things that much more difficult. You will be splitting your time and effort which may backfire on you.
So what is the best way to go?
This answer is different for each person and family. You need to weight out your options and the pros/cons above and do what works best for YOUR situation.
If you do decide to do this with two accounts I would suggest signing every other new customer/achiever as your own account and every other customer/achiever to your spouse and building them evenly once you are at the point where your spouse does enroll under you.
For me, I would suggest that you sign your spouse AFTER you have reached at least Over Achiever rank. Then you will be sure to have the income to support two accounts and not be spending more than you make. You are here to earn income while changing lives (unless you are just here for the discount, in which case this whole conversation most likley does not apply to you).
Also – keep in mind when various incentives are taking place if you want to reach those levels you will need to concentrate on your main account first!
