When Dan & Kate DeFeo, of West Bridgewater, MA, first started out in the business they were like many twenty somethings. With just a year of college under his belt, and $43,000 in student loans, Dan took a job as a mechanic. “I was working as a mechanic and constantly doing side jobs to earn a living,” recalls Dan. “Despite always feeling like I was working, it was never enough. I couldn’t imagine making $14 per hour for the rest of my life. So when I heard about the Primerica business opportunity, I went to a local office and got started.”
It was a decision that forever impacted the course of his and Kate’s lives. “Here, we own our own time,” reflects Dan. “We decide our own quality of life. We are in charge of our future. Here, we don’t get laid off and we don’t have to ask anyone’s permission to take time off to be with our kids, to go on vacation or to spend time with family.”
He continues, “This business has helped Kate and me to have a wonderful marriage, to enjoy time with our children and, most of all, it has given us the opportunity to take care of the people we love without looking at the price tag.”
A few years ago, the DeFeos got a taste of the freedom their business has allowed them to create for themselves when Dan’s father became ill. “My dad needed dialysis and he didn’t have a reliable vehicle to take him to and from the medical facility,” explains Dan. “Because of our Primerica income, we were able to buy him a car so he wouldn’t have to take public transportation. Dialysis gave us about seven more years with him that we wouldn’t have had if he hadn’t been able to take the treatment. This business also gave us the chance to help Kate’s parents. Her mother, at age 70, wanted to retire but couldn’t afford to. We were able to not only add onto our home to create a separate living space for them, but we also paid off all their debts!”

*Primerica income figures are based upon April 2011 gross cash flow (including advances). 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.
