Success as a Family Tradition

Darron Charles, of College Park, MD, was 10 years old when his parents, Walter & Ruperta Charles, joined Primerica. The more his parents got involved in the business, the more he saw them change. When it came time to choose a career for himself, the decision was simple.

“Before Primerica, my dad would come home every day, frustrated and angry,” reflects Darron. “He was working a job where he was overworked, underpaid and underappreciated. Joining Primerica changed him. He became more positive and started working on himself. He even had me read self-improvement books so I could learn to think like successful people do.”

He continues, “Before I went off to college, my father made sure I got licensed and took me to the 2005 Primerica Convention. That event changed my life. I knew then, that when I graduated from college, I was coming straight to Primerica.”

Now, just a few years after coming into the business full-time, Darron and his wife, Myra, are new Power Builder Ring earners, following in the footsteps of Darron’s successful parents.*

“The most challenging thing about joining my parents in the business was the self-improvement,” explains Darron. “But that was also the most rewarding – knowing from their example that as Myra and I get better as people and as business builders, that there are no limitations on what we can do.”

Congratulations, Darron and Myra! Primerica started changing your family’s future many years ago, and you’re now continuing that tradition of success for your own family.

*As of November 2014. From January 1 through December 31, 2014, Primerica paid a total of $593,056,197 in compensation to its sales force, at an average of $6,030 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. 15PFS24

Saffords Put on 25th Diamond

Tom & Leila Safford, of Wayne, PA, are thrilled to be continuing the legacy begun by the legendary late Bob Safford. And putting on their 25th diamond – and what that achievement means for their teammates – is an exciting step forward for their family business.* (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 are excited to carry on that legacy, yet we are equally excited about helping others create legacies for their own families,” explains Tom. “One of the most AWESOME things about our business is that we get paid to help others live THEIR dreams!”

He continues, “When we started in this business, we were in a fight with the biggest, baddest industry, that owned all the skylines of all the major cities. Whatever they threw at us only made us rally around our cause. Today – with what the banks are doing to consumers – we have an even BIGGER crusade to help everyone, Millennials and older people to not become pawns in their game. We have the opportunity to show them a better way!”

Incredible work, Tom and Leila! Your continued successes further establish your family and your team as a phenomenal force for good in 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.

When Joe Hollimon, of Everett, WA, was finishing his eleventh year as a professional football player, he found himself thinking more and more about the future. “I was living in Canada at the time but I decided to go back to my home state of Arkansas to study for a career in finance,” recalls Joe. “That’s when Primerica found me. For Glenda and me to have now crossed over the $400,000 mark is the greatest accomplishment in our lives and we give full credit to our team for getting us to this point. ”

He continues, “My dad passed away when I was a freshman in college, leaving our family with nothing. Because of Primerica – and because we have Ownership – this business is now in our family tree.** Two of our three sons are in the business with us and when we’re gone, what we’re building now will be passed down to them and to our five grandchildren, to continue our legacy.”

Congratulations, Joe and Glenda! You and your team – including your sons – are building something incredible, that will continue to impact lives around you for generations to come!

Building A Legacy of Success

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

When Michele Kisenwether, of Hazle Township, PA, first heard about the Primerica business opportunity, she had no idea she was about to embark on a journey with her family that would lead to a business venture together. “I became a client in 1997,” recalls Michele. “One of the things I did initially was to start an education fund for my daughter, Amanda, so that she could get her teaching degree without having to take out any loans. I was so impressed by what Primerica had enabled me to do for my daughter that when Amanda was 21 I joined the business. Less than a year later, I was absolutely thrilled to have her join me!” (more…)

Freedom to Live Life On Your Own Terms

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!”
