Jenlinks Claim Second Diamond*

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Jay Jenlink, of Jet, OK, comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, so when it came time to choose a career for himself and his own family, the only question was what kind of opportunity to pick.

“I’m a fifth generation entrepreneur,” relates Jay. “My wife, Stephanie, and I were drawn to Primerica by the chance to own our own business and to be able to build with no territories, no quotas, and no caps on our income.”

He continues, “Growing up in (and still living in) a small rural town in Oklahoma, Primerica has challenged us to dream bigger and to have a larger vision than we would have had in our previous occupation as a farmer and college student. Finding Primerica has changed our family’s future!”

Great job, Jay and Stephanie! You chose the right vehicle to carry on your family’s tradition of being in business for yourselves!

*As of July 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. 14PFS445

Freedom to Live Life On Your Own Terms

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Tommy and Kimberly Lee

Primerica’s entrepreneurial business opportunity is an excellent way for leaders earn a great potential income, be their own boss and take control of their own futures. But those are only the surface benefits of being in business for yourself. As Tommy and Kimberly Lee, of Carlsbad, CA, say, one of the most valuable aspects of their business is the freedom being a Primerica entrepreneur has enabled them to enjoy.

“We were living in Wayne, NJ, when we joined the business in 1994,” recalls Tommy. “I worked as an electrician before Primerica and I was instantly motivated by the opportunity to potentially own my own business – and be my own boss. Now, 18 years later, Primerica has not only given us the ability to achieve our financial goals, but this business has also given us the freedom, flexibility and belief that we can accomplish anything we put our minds to.”

Following A Dream
One of those things this pair “put their minds to” was a change of scenery. And, because Primerica doesn’t limit how big you build your business or where you do so, the Lees had the freedom to pick up their business and move themselves and their daughter, Skylar, to beautiful San Diego, CA in 2009. “Kim and I fell in love with San Diego when we qualified for one of Primerica’s incentive trips a few years after we started,” says Tommy. “It’s been one of our dreams to live here ever since – a dream we also instilled in our daughter.”

He continues, “In fact, Skylar was instrumental in our move. We’ve instilled in her the same ‘never give up on your dreams’ attitude that we have about our business so when things weren’t going so well with the sale of our house in NJ and Kim and I started back tracking a bit on our plans, she wouldn’t let us! She was seven years old at the time and I remember her telling us ‘Don’t give up on our dream.’”

Passing On Great Habits
The Lees have built a successful Primerica business (twice!) which has given them the freedom to choose the kind of lifestyle they enjoy and, they say, the ability to show their daughter the value of hard work. “We credit Primerica with helping us to be outstanding parents to Skylar,” enthuses Tommy. “It’s the toughest job, I think, but just seeing her learn from us and watching her model the principles we’re living in front of her is unbelievable. She really is the best person we know. She’s so confident, focused and super positive – which are all things our Primerica business has taught us to be!”

Tommy says their Primerica income has opened doors for their family that they couldn’t have even conceived before they joined. “We’re able to give Skylar the things we want to,” says Tommy. “She’s on the gymnastics team, she does dance and acting, and her teacher tells us she’s the best student in her fourth grade class. These are all habits that Kim and I have cultivated in ourselves as we’ve built our business first in New Jersey and now here in San Diego and we love that we’re passing those on to our daughter!”

Galvao Blings It Up for a Third Time

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Telmo Galvao

Telmo Galvao, of Pawtucket, RI, was working in a convenience store when his life changed forever. “A Primerica rep came into the store and we started talking,” remembers Telmo. “He told me that I could make a great potential part-time* income that I could turn into a successful career, if I chose. I fell in love with the business immediately. I really believed that this business would work for me because I felt like the whole life industry wasn’t meeting the needs of its clients and I wanted to be a part of fixing that.”

Like many people, Telmo started building his Primerica business part-time. Then, a year after he started, he lost his $23,000 per year job – which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. “I felt sorry for myself for a month and then I called my upline and told him I was ready to go full-time in the business,” says Telmo. “My first year as a full time business builder, I earned more than $50,000. My second year, I went over $134,000!”

Today, Telmo is a proud Ring wearer (reps earn a Ring when they reach $100,000 in income within a single 12-month period) with a newly added third diamond.** Reps earn diamond accents to add to their Rings each time they earn an additional $100,000 in income within a single 12-month period.

“There are lots of things I can do now for my family that I never could have done if I’d stayed at my job,” smiles Telmo. “Because of Primerica, I am able to financially help my family here and also in my native Cape Verde Islands. I also have the potential to qualify to pass my business on to generations to come.*** Where else can you have the chance to accomplish all of this but Primerica?”

Congratulations, Telmo! Your hard work and dedication to changing lives in your community has helped you to change your own at the same time. Amazing job!

Nuñez Focuses on Growth and Scores a Second Diamond!

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Arturo Nunez

Last year, when Primerica announced the dates for the Primerica Convention in June, Arturo A. Nuñez, of Miami Lakes, FL, took it as a personal challenge to up his game and add a second diamond to his Ring. Reps earn the Primerica Ring when they reach the $100,000* in income within a single 12-month period and then they receive diamond accents for each additional $100,000 in income they earn within the same time period.

“I began to put a realistic plan together for how I was going to reach my goal,” explains Arturo. “Every day, I read my goals, which always kept them in the forefront of my mind and helped me stay motivated and focused.”

The “secret,” Arturo says, was to continually improve his activity and production. “I didn’t just write down my game plan, I executed it,” says Arturo. “I focused on growing week over week and month over month in every area. I wanted to get myself into the habit of combining a growth mindset with a strong work ethic – and it paid off.”

Arturo has come a long way since his days as an unemployed student – and he’s proud of all he’s accomplished since he found Primerica in 2003. “I feel like I’m at the beginning of an amazing journey full of growth – not just financially, but personally as well.”

Congratulations, Arturo. By pushing yourself to achieve the goals you’d set, you kept yourself on track for this milestone.

Khannas Earn an Incredible $20,988* in May!

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Suman and Shashi Khanna

May was a standout month for Suman & Shashi Khanna, of Richmond Hill, NY. They closed out the month with nearly $21,000* in income, a personal record! “We love that because of Primerica, we have the potential for an unlimited income and all the freedom that comes with a life like that,” smiles Suman.

Before Primerica, Suman worked as a financial controller for nearly two decades. At the time, he had a whole life insurance policy. But when a friend came to their home and showed them the difference between whole life and term insurance, the Khannas were sold. “We joined the business because we felt like we had been taken advantage of by the whole life company,” explains Suman. “We wanted to be a part of Primerica’s crusade to correct that injustice.”

Through the years, the Khannas have helped many families but one stands out the strongest. “We helped a client to get a better mortgage and we replaced his whole life policy at the same time,” says Suman. “About 18 months later, the client passed away. I was able to deliver the death claim to the client’s beneficiary for two and a half times the coverage of his original policy. That’s when I really understood that this business is about changing people’s lives.”
