Chris & Joy Legaspi, of Pasadena, CA, have always had the strong desire to help people. It’s what inspired them to own and operate a board and care facility for the elderly and it’s what intrigued them about the Primerica opportunity two years ago. “We were making a decent income from our former business,” recalls Chris. “But always in the back of our minds, we were thinking that it wasn’t the vehicle to our dreams. When we found Primerica, it gave us the opportunity to continue making a difference in our community, while achieving the life of our dreams at the same time.”
He continues, “The thing that attracted us the most to Primerica is that this business is an even playing field. It doesn’t matter what your background is, everyone has the same chance of success if they put in the effort.”
The Legaspis joined the business in the middle of the big economic crisis – but Chris says they were so excited about their new venture that they didn’t even notice. “I really didn’t realize we were even in an economic downturn,” explains Chris. “We just found that almost everyone we knew, who we told about Primerica, were interested in joining with us! Of course, now, it’s even easier to find people who want to create a better life for themselves. They know that the job they have is not as ‘secure’ as they thought it was. Everyone seems to be looking for a ‘Plan B.’”
Chris and Joy have consistently built their business over the last two years and it paid off recently when they earned the Power Builder Ring (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). “It feels great to earn the Ring,” smiles Chris. “It’s one of those milestones in our Primerica career that validates all the hard work that we’ve been putting into our business.”
Way to go, Chris and Joy! You’re proving every day that you have what it takes to create the life of your dreams!
*Primerica income figures are based upon rolling 12‑month gross cash flow (including advances) as of June 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.
