Earning a seventh diamond is a proud moment for new SNSD Alex & Lisa Makanvand, of Pasadena, CA.* Primerica reps receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* in income within a single 12-month period. They receive diamond accents for each additional $100,000 in income they earn within the same time period.
It’s an exciting time for the Makanvands, but not just for them – for their whole team as well! “A lot of our team has been with us from the start, so our successes are a result of us all growing and maturing in the business together,” explains Alex. “We have such a great group of leaders who are all working hard and starting to hit big income milestones themselves, which is pushing us up at the same time.”
Before Primerica, Alex worked as an engineer. He made a decent income but the family still struggled under the weight of $52,000 in credit card debts. “We were barely making the minimum payments so when we heard about the Opportunity, we thought, ‘If we can just make a few hundred dollars for closing a sale, I can certainly make more if we join on a part-time** basis,’” Alex says. “We really just wanted to pay down our debt but the incredible leadership of our upline showed us that through Primerica, we had a real opportunity to build a business.”
Today, the Makanvands are living the life of their dreams and are pumped up about sharing their successes with others. “We live in tough economic times,” reflects Alex. “Most of us have never experienced a time like this – and hopefully we never will again – but the benefit is that we’re finding a lot of very talented people who wouldn’t have been interested in looking at something else a few years ago, who are now coming to us to find out what it was we’ve been talking to them about for all this time. It’s helping us explode our business!”
Alex and Lisa are excited about reaching $700,000 in income and advancing to SNSD, the highest level in the business. But they’re certainly not going to retire to the sidelines. “In a few months we should have our eighth diamond and be one step closer to becoming Primerica million-dollar earners,” enthuses Alex.
Congratulations, Alex and Lisa! You’ve hit a big milestone and are setting a great example of success for others to follow.
*Primerica income figures are based upon rolling 12‑month gross cash flow (including advances) as of August 2011. The cash flows stated are not intended to demonstrate the earnings of typical RVPs/representatives. Rather, the cash flows that have been cited reflect the potential that comes with building your business, and there is no guarantee that you will achieve any specific cash flow level. Most RVPs/representatives do not achieve the levels illustrated. In the 12‑month period ending in December 2010, Primerica paid a total of $503,115,928 in compensation to the sales force at an average of $5,296 per licensed representative. Average RVP earnings are typically higher. Actual gross cash flow is, among other factors, dependent upon the size and scale of a representative’s organization, the number of sales and the override spread on each sale, and the ability and efforts of you and your downlines. Having said this, Primerica provides a tremendous opportunity for individuals who work hard and who desire to develop a business with strong income potential.
