Miguel & Jackie Lazo, of Gaithersburg, MD, felt the effects of the housing market crash first hand. As a mortgage broker, Miguel says he made a great income but ended up losing his business when the recession hit. “I had to go get a job making about $2,500 a month to pay the bills and keep ourselves afloat,” recalls Miguel. “When we heard about Primerica, we joined, at first, to make some extra money so we could catch up on some bills. But what we found was a tremendous opportunity that has been a huge blessing to us and our family.”
Less than three years later, the Lazos are Power Builder Ring earners (which reps receive when they earn at least $100,000* in income and add a minimum of 100 people to their team within a single 12-month period) with big dreams for their future. “Now that we’ve earned the Ring, our biggest goals are to help as many of our teammates to advance to Regional Vice President and earn their own Rings which should push us up to the Senior Vice President level,” enthuses Miguel.
Miguel and Jackie say they know from experience what it’s like to try to get by in a tough economy – and it’s helping them to attract others to join them in the business. “In today’s world, everyone can benefit from extra income,” says Miguel. “Whether it’s to catch up on bills, pay down their debt or to invest for the future, people need Primerica. One of the things we do a lot when we’re talking to people is to simply share our story. We were in a tough financial situation when we started but that’s all changed thanks to Primerica.”
Great Job, Miguel and Jackie! There are a lot of people out there in a similar financial situation to what you experienced before Primerica and your story is a powerful testament to what the Primerica Opportunity can do.
*Primerica income figures are based upon rolling 12‑month gross cash flow (including advances) as of October 2011. The cash flows stated are not intended to demonstrate the earnings of typical RVPs/representatives. 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.11PFS652
