At Primerica, field representatives have the support of a skilled and committed Home Office team of more than 1,700 employees who are dedicated to helping more Main Street families become financially independent every day.*

They work in executive leadership, marketing, communications, technology, life operations, legal and compliance, and training and development — areas where they are totally focused on serving the needs of the sales force, and they love their jobs!

So, why is it so great to be a Primerican? Here’s what one Home Office employee had to say:

For Monalisa Chowdhury, who works in accounting and financial analysis, the best part about working at Primerica is the people and the company culture. “It’s a fun and friendly environment,” says Chowdhury.

What makes Primerica different from other companies is its unique business model, Chowdhury explains. “Here at Primerica, we are very passionate about our mission to help the middle market. We’ve helped thousands of people become financially independent and to acquire protection and financial security for their families.”

Primerica is an innovator in technology and industry solutions, says Chowdhury. “We have one of the largest independent sales forces and some of the best technology and solutions in the industry. We are committed to becoming the provider of choice to our consumers.”

Chowdhury has worked at Primerica since 2011.

In 1988, the R.H. Crossland Foundation was established in Durango, CO. The foundation, created by Primerica Senior National Sales Director* Rusty Crossland, was built with “a purpose to foster a legacy of giving back further to his team and community.”

“My motivation for the foundation came after the death of my father,” explains Rusty. “Prior to his retirement, he was a supervisor in the Primerica Home Office mail room and loved giving back to others.”

Over the years, the foundation has contributed to an array of both local and national causes including charities, individuals and scholarships.

“My hard work has provided me with the resources to not only establish our historical document museum, but also to give money to countless worthy causes that are in alignment with our values,” says Rusty.

While the foundation’s track record is both long and varied, perhaps its greatest contribution has been to Amanda Boxtel. Amanda, a young Australian woman, was paralyzed from the waist down after a tragic ski accident in 1992. Since that day, Amanda has dreamed of walking again.

“Our foundation has had the opportunity to support her not only in her journey to walk again, but also while she founded Challenge Aspen – a non-profit organization,” Rusty explains. “Challenge Aspen is dedicated to presenting outdoor mountain experiences for individuals faced with cognitive or physical challenges, and we’ve been able to provide more than $500,000 in funding for associated causes.”

Additionally, the foundation has partnered with the Albert Pujols Family Foundation. This foundation exists to promote awareness, provide hope and meet tangible needs for impoverished families in the Dominican Republic.

“Albert is a super star baseball player for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim,” Rusty says. “We’ve connected with him to help fund medical and spiritual missions to Santo Domingo to aid the poverty-stricken areas.”

Today, the foundation continues to brighten the lives of others through donations and local events. This March, they are hosting Mountain Middle School at their site for an in-depth history lesson.

“My hard work has provided me with the opportunity to honor my father,” Rusty says. “But don’t forget you don’t need money to leave a legacy – your time, influence and service are what make the difference.”

Making a New Year’s resolution is a fun way to positively change your life, whether it’s getting organized, losing weight or saving money. But according to research, approximately 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February.1 Now that April is underway, it’s a good time to assess your progress and think about your game plan moving forward.

If you vowed to get your finances in order in 2017, you’re not alone. In fact, one of the top New Year’s resolutions each year is to spend less and save more.2 While saving money may seem easy at first – as the months go by, you may notice your resolve begins to fade. Here are two tips to stay on track:

  • Reevaluate your approach to saving money. You may find that what worked for someone in the past may not work for you. If you notice you’ve been slipping … get back up and reconsider your approach! Your map toward success should not be set in stone, but rather adjustable according to your circumstances. Resiliency is vital – especially during these first few months!
  • Measuring your progress is paramount. Not only does it serve as a source of motivation, but also it calls for reflection. Seeing how much money you’ve saved over time is a reminder of your hard work and dedication. It also indicates if you’re hitting a peak or falling backward, so that you can adjust your efforts accordingly. Tracking your growth each month will increase your odds of success and not to mention – if you don’t measure your finances, you can’t spot change!

As 2017 unfolds, celebrate your victories, but be compassionate when you slip up. You don’t have to wait for a New Year to start again … tomorrow’s a new day!

There are ways to travel and be frugal at the same time. Here are four:

1) Pick an ‘off-season’ destination: Choosing a vacation destination to go to during its “shoulder” or “off-peak” season has numerous advantages. For starters, the less touristy the spot, the better deals you’ll be offered on everything from airfare to lodging, not to mention it’ll be more secluded when you get there. No matter if you’re trying to get away for a few days or a few weeks, there is a destination out there that is perfect for your trip. Focus on the experience and what you’ll get to do and see that you wouldn’t get to do at peak season.

2) Book competitive travel fares: Understanding peak tourist seasons in different parts of the world is critical to getting good deals. Being flexible with travel dates (and times) also helps. Airfares to Europe are less expensive as the weather gets cooler and some tropical regions get cheaper as the weather heats up. Give yourself some wiggle room with trip details – like possible layovers and flight times. Passing on a direct flight, flying stand-by, or taking a “red-eye” can potentially save you a lot of money. Have a few hours before a connecting flight? Get out of the airport and go explore the city. Just don’t forget your boarding pass!

3) Consider alternative accommodations: Whether you stay in a hostel, rent private property, stay with friends or try your luck trading dwellings with a stranger, there are many less expensive alternatives to staying at your run-of-the-mill hotel. Most hostels have private rooms (even for couples) and can save you hundreds of dollars when compared to the alternative, not to mention all the great people you could meet on your trip. Where you stay is part of the overall adventure, so why not make it memorable?

4) Don’t pay too much to eat and drink: The expression, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” is cliché because of its universal application. When it comes to cuisine you’ll get the most out of the culture you’re experiencing if you shop where the locals shop and dine where the locals dine. Spending the day museum hopping? Go to the neighborhood grocery, fill up a picnic basket with popular deli items and find a nice spot to enjoy the meal and people-watch. Spending the night on the town? Scour the Internet for area dining reviews to find out where the locals eat.
