Jesus Palenzuela, of Cooper City, FL, spent his first career using his strong work ethic to help his employer make more money. Today, he and his wife, Janet, are in business for themselves, celebrating their second diamond achievement like only Primerica leaders can … by working toward their third.
(Primerica leaders receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period. They receive diamond accents for each additional $100,000 of income they earn within the same timeframe.)
“I used to be the operations manager for a bank,” reflects Jesus. “Primerica gave us the chance to work hard for ourselves, not for someone else, in a professional, yet fun, environment. It feels great reaching our goal of $200,000. We are now moving on to $300,000 and full Ownership!”**
Jesus says his family’s life today is totally different than it would have been if he’d stayed in the corporate world. “This business has allowed us to retire Janet,” Jesus explains. “We’ve sent our kids to private schools. And we’ve continued to save and invest for our future.”
He adds, “We’ve achieved the successes that we have so far by focusing on two of the fundamentals of this business: prospecting and setting appointments. Both are vital to getting to the kitchen table. Mastering both of those fundamentals leads to more appointments, which then result in more new people joining us in the business, more field training, closing more business, and getting more referrals.”
Awesome job, Jesus and Janet! You’ve focused on getting in front of as many people as you can, and that’s led to a growing, thriving business … and many, many changed lives!
*As of September 2014. From January 1 through December 31, 2013, Primerica paid a total of $536,506,140 in compensation to its sales force, at an average of $5,614 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. **The Ownership Program is subject to terms, conditions and applicable regulatory requirements.
