Growing up in Compton, CA, Tonia Poe says the concept of a family legacy was unheard of. “People don’t talk about passing a business down to their children,” explains Tonia. “When I joined Primerica and learned about the Ownership program, all I could think about was my daughter, Tyler.** I felt like I HAD to achieve Ownership not only for my daughter, but to show people back home what they can do if they do what I did!”
As a newly minted third diamond earner and full Owner, Tonia is well on her way to the life she came to Primerica to create. (Primerica reps receive the Ring when they earn $100,000* of income within a single 12-month period and diamond accents for each additional $100,000 earned within the same timeframe.)
“What I love about this business is that it teaches you to rely on yourself – to go do the work to make your dreams happen,” says Tonia. “So often, as women, we’re taught to rely on others – a man, our family, etc. – for success. But Primerica gives you the opportunity and the ability to do what you need to do to change your life.”
Awesome job, Tonia! You’re a powerful example of what hard work and determination, plus Primerica, can accomplish.
*As of June 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.
