Almost 25 years ago to the week, Mike & Amy Landrum, of Hattiesburg, MS, began their lives and their Primerica journey together. Today, they’re at the helm of a thriving, successful hierarchy – and they’ve just added a very special gem to their blinged-out Rings. They are the company’s newest Million-Dollar Earners!*
“We’ve dreamed about this for years, and we are thrilled! We sent out a group text to our family. They were all so happy for us. Our oldest daughter said she’s just so happy and proud of us both. Those are the things that make this so special.”
The Landrum team takes a lot of pride in this milestone, too, Mike said. “This Ring is building even more belief in the Opportunity,” he explained. “A few people in our hierarchy have been texting me often over the past two years, just saying ‘Mike to a Million.’ It was a rallying cry for us, and now we’re here!”
The Landrums didn’t just jump in and win with Primerica. Their story is what has inspired so many others to persevere until dreams become reality. In 1984, Mike was a tight end for the Atlanta Falcons, living the dream he’d had since his days playing college football. But an injury abruptly ended his football career and left him wondering what he’d do with the rest of his life. He wanted to do something that he could be passionate about again, but he had no idea what he could love as much as he’d loved football. He found that passion for Primerica.
Before Primerica, Mike didn’t even know how to balance his checkbook. The company gave him the chance to learn how money works – and to help families to do the same.
2014 was an amazing year for the Landrums. Their hard work and commitment to the Primerica Crusade paid off. They earned their eighth and ninth Diamonds within months of each other. And now, just a few months later, the couple has surpassed their income goals and has become a symbol of Primerica’s highest level of achievement.*
Mike attributes much of their success to staying in motion. He explains, “Once you stop going on appointments, it’s easy to forget that you have people’s financial lives in the palm of your hands.” He and Amy have 41 Regional Vice Presidents in their hierarchy – 20 of them first generation. So what does Mike plan to do next? What comes after becoming Primerica’s newest Million-Dollar Earners? Mike said, “I’m going out to find 21.”
Congratulations, Mike & Amy. You deserve all the success coming your way!
*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
