Kostelnik & Andrews Put on a Second Diamond*

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Before Primerica, Joel Kostelnik, of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, owned a moving and storage company. “I had great, hard-working people working for me, but I couldn’t pay myself or pay them what they were worth and still keep the business afloat,” Joel explains. “I was gone a lot, driving the trucks, so I missed a lot of my children’s younger years as well. Plus, I was unemployed every time a move was complete. Then, I saw Primerica! This was an opportunity to build a business where I could help people have the same shot at an unlimited income that I had!”

Together with his Partner, Jennifer Andrews, Joel took that opportunity and ran with it.** In June, the pair broke the provincial licensing record with eight new licenses AND scored their second diamond! (Primerica reps receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period and diamond accents for each additional $100,000 earned within the same timeframe.)

“We were more excited about having eight licenses in one month than we were about the second diamond,” smiles Joel. “Licensing gives our business stability and longevity. With more licensed leaders, we can make a bigger impact and change more families’ lives.”

Fantastic work, Joel and Jennifer! Your focus on growing licensed distribution is enabling you to have an even greater impact on your community!

*As of June 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. **The Partnership Empowerment Program (PEP) is a recognition program for Primerica partnerships.

Redds Put on Second Diamond

Jerry Redd, of Dallas, TX, was a high school dropout working construction when a friend introduced him to Primerica. “I turned him down six times, but on the seventh, I finally agreed to check the business out,” recalls Jerry. “My full-time job had just given me early retirement at the age of 42, so the timing was perfect.”

Jerry didn’t have much knowledge about finance, but he and his wife, Debbie, were determined to make their new business work. Today, the pair are new diamond earners, with a vision for their third and fourth in the near future. (Primerica reps receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period and diamond accents for each additional $100,000 earned within the same timeframe.)

“Early on, we didn’t understand what earning six figures would mean for our family,” explains Jerry. “No one in my family had ever done it before, and I’d worked all my life as a ‘hard hat’ construction guy. Now, Debbie and I wake up every morning and decide what we want to do. I never set my alarm clock and I never have to think about designated sick days or vacation days from an employer. We’ve built our business, and our income, to the point where we are totally free!”

Incredible work, Jerry and Debbie! You’re using your Primerica business to “be somebody” and your successes prove that you’re really good at it!

Gurfeins Cross Over 12th Diamond Mark

Neal & Victoria Gurfein, of Irwindale, CA, are celebrating adding diamond number two to their Million-Dollar Ring.* (Primerica reps receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period and diamond accents for each additional $100,000 earned within the same timeframe.)

“What you focus on, grows,” enthuses Neal. “We’re just staying consistent, building a big base shop, growing strong RVPs, and personally producing premium and recruits. We have very high standards in our base shop and we hold ourselves and our team to certain expectations. We’ve made it a point to promote correctly – only promoting strong, independent Regional Vice Presidents (RVPs) who are already making money. That allows both us and our new RVPs to not miss a beat.”

One of those expectations is for every member of the team to play at the top of their game … every day. “Right now, across the board, we have leaders at every level who are either at number one, or who are in the top five on the California leaders boards,” Neal says. “We have a lot of momentum in the base shop, we’re seeing diamond movement, and our teams’ belief level is at an all-time high.”

Keep up the amazing work, Neal and Victoria! Your focus on creating strong, independent new leaders is resulting in big-time growth for your business!

Gibsons Bling It Up a Second Time

Before Primerica, Chris Gibson, of Ft. St. John, British Columbia, had a successful career as a tradesman. “I was a millwright, welder and world class knife maker,” explains Chris. “I was at the top of my game with 20 years or so ahead of me. But Primerica gave me the chance to help people in the same way that my wife, Janet, and I were helped. I was hooked on the idea of being a part of a company that I saw as a type of ‘Robin Hood’ for the financial services industry. I will always be a tradesman at heart – I just fix different things now with different tools.”

Earning their second diamond is an exciting milestone for the Gibsons. (Primerica reps receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period and diamond accents for each additional $100,000 earned within the same timeframe.)

“It feels great to reach this level,” smiles Chris. “I’m still pinching myself though! I can thank my wife’s and family’s support for getting us to this level. In the early days Janet took a full-time job so I could quit mine to come do this business. She took a big gamble on me, but now she works with me every day as we continue to build our business!”

Fantastic work, Chris and Janet! Your passion for the Crusade has given you the chance to make a powerful impact on lives around you – and that’s worth being proud of!

Chappelles Earn Third Diamond, Ownership*

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Keith Chappelle, of Duncanville, TX, was 21 years old when he began the journey that would bring him his wife, Sheila, their children, and a three-diamond (and counting) business with full Ownership.** “Primerica has been my life and my family,” reflects Keith. “The third diamond and Ownership are great accomplishments for Sheila and me, but they’re really a tribute to our great base shop and unbelievable downline RVPs.”

(Primerica reps receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period and diamond accents for each additional $100,000 earned within the same timeframe.)

He continues, “Having qualified for full Ownership gives us the assurance that we are building something that will live on long after we are gone. For generations, our family will be reaping the benefits from what we’re doing right now!”

Amazing job, Keith and Sheila! Everything you do from now on will only continue to build value in the business you’ll one day pass on to your children!
