Before they found Primerica, Mark Blass, of Dulles, VA, was told he was “overpaid” at his $40,000 per year engineering job, and that he’d hit the limit of what he could earn in that position. “I was 26 years old with nowhere to go in my career,” recalls Mark. “There were no opportunities for raises, and the threat of layoffs was a constant. It was a very unstable environment. When my wife, Kelly, and I found Primerica, we found a place where no one will ever tell us we are ‘overpaid.’ In fact, all we hear here is how much more we can earn if we do the work.”
Working in an environment that not only encourages growth, but provides ample opportunities for leaders to drive toward it, was exactly what the Blasses needed. “It feels great to be at the four-diamond level,” enthuses Mark.* (Primerica leaders receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period. They receive diamond accents for each additional $100,000 of income they earn within the same timeframe.)
“We’ve never stopped working in our base shop. We believe we have some of the best Regional Vice Presidents (RVPs) in the business – people who are working like never before to build something special for their families and to help those in their community. These are good people making a difference!”
He concludes, “We’ve been here 23 years now and I can say with certainty that there has never been a more exciting time to be in Primerica. We are so excited about the direction of the company, and about the energy and enthusiasm of our RVPs and near term RVPs. There is no reason not to go all out right now. We’re proud of our fourth diamond, but we are committing now to having our fifth by the 2015 Primerica Convention!”
Amazing work, Mark and Kelly! When your chance for freedom was limited by your employer, you fired your boss and took charge of your family’s destiny as entrepreneurs!
*As of September 2014. From January 1 through December 31, 2013, Primerica paid a total of $536,506,140 in compensation to its sales force, at an average of $5,614 per life licensed representative. 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 a representative and their downlines. Having said this, Primerica provides an opportunity for individuals who work hard to develop a business with unlimited income potential. 14PFS561
