Another Primerica Team Where Family Bonds Make Good Business

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Robin Roark and Janice Roark

After traveling throughout the US and Europe as a professional singer, Robin Roark and his new wife, Janice, settled in Williamsburg, VA, to raise a family. Robin began to look for something to support the household that would keep him closer to home. “I taught at different colleges and universities,” says Robin, “William and Mary being the most notable. But I really wanted something that I had more control over. The professional music business, whether you are performing, teaching or doing both, can be challenging to say the least.”

In 1986, Robin and Janice became Primerica clients. “Our Primerica rep did a great job with our investments and life insurance,” remembers Robin, “He showed us how to get a whole lot more life insurance for a whole lot less money. That enabled us to start saving more for the future.

“What really impressed me about Primerica is how their focus is Main Street families. Many financial services companies are mainly interested in helping people who are already wealthy. The way I see it, wealthy people don’t need investment help half as much as average people do.”

Office Opens and Family Building Begins
Soon, Robin and Janice started their own Primerica business. “I was so impressed with the Opportunity,” remembers Robin. “I could help people, feel pride in what I was doing and make a good living in the process. And Janice and I could do it together!” Only a year later, they opened their own office.

An early team member was the couple’s son, Sean, who was just heading off to college in Tennessee. “I did quite a bit of business while I was in college,” says Sean. “It was great because I got some real-world perspective that most of the kids with whom I was taking business classes weren’t exposed to. I think I got a lot more out of my college years because of Primerica.” After some years in the workaday world, Sean has recommitted to growing the Primerica business he is building with wife, Alicia.

More Family Joins the Team
Another member of the Roark family to join Primerica was their daughter, Colleen. She had been in the business for around 10 years when she met her soon-to-be husband, Bryan Hefner. Bryan worked in electronic circuit design by trade but Colleen wanted him to investigate Primerica as a part-time option* – a way for the couple to build for the future or even expand to full time if they ever wanted to.

“I wasn’t too enthused and I told her so,” laughs Bryan, “which wasn’t the best answer since we were still newlyweds.” Eventually Colleen prevailed and Bryan began attending business opportunity meetings with her. “By the third week,” says Bryan, “everything I had heard started to gel. I realized that, with Primerica, I could teach people important things that are just ignored in school. I could share the truth about how money works, show people how to best protect their families with the right insurance and how to save and invest. I saw that Primerica is an answer for average people who are usually either ignored or sold the wrong financial solutions. And, when my job in electronics ended, Primerica turned out to be the answer for us.”

“I feel really lucky to have a business that includes my family,” says Robin. “Janice is invaluable in keeping the office moving. Sean and Bryan are great with the technology that is allowing us to take care of clients and solve any challenges faster and more accurately than ever before – while Alicia and Colleen back each of them. Life is good!”

*In Canada, the part-time opportunity is not available in all jurisdictions and, where it is available, is subject to certain restrictions. 12PFS81

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.”

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.

Karamjeet Singh

When Karamjeet Singh, of Stockton, CA, first heard about the Primerica business opportunity, he had no idea his future was about to change dramatically. “I was working at a gas station making about $2,000 per month,” recalls Karamjeet. “Most of my time was spent at work – 12 hours a day, seven days a week. My time was not my own.”

Congratulations, Jon Mark & Sarah Davis, of Dorchester, Ontario, for recently earning the Power Builder Watch! Primerica reps receive this recognition when they earn at least $50,000* in income and add a minimum of 50 people to their team within a single 12-month period.

“We stayed on track for the Power Builder Watch by focusing on maintaining a balanced business – helping families with all of their financial needs. We believe that our ‘buy term’ concept must be paired with our ‘invest the difference’ concept! We’ve put a lot of effort into becoming great in all the areas our clients need help with – and we’ve also focused on helping our teammates to do the same.”

Awesome job, Jon Mark and Sarah! You’re on track for your next big milestone: the Primerica Ring!
