When new SVP Shak Islam, of Herndon, VA, met Primerica, he was earning $37,000 per year as a project controller. “I was paralyzed by my comfort zone,” explains Shak. “Primerica gave me the chance to break free of that and create something incredible for my family. For my wife, Iram, and me, the biggest difference in our lives now is the money. But I don’t think you make more money to have more money … you do it to have more freedom, and that’s exactly what we have because of Primerica.”
The Islams are proud of their SVP promotion – mostly because of what it means for their team. “We’ve been keeping the main thing the main thing,” says Shak. “Our focus has been to grow the size of our licensed team. It feels great to be at SVP, but it feels even better knowing we did it by focusing on developing other people.”
Keep up the great work, Shak and Iram! Your focus on developing new leaders on your team has put you well on your way to creating a strong hierarchy.
