My boyfriend used to be an RVP at Primerica. Now he works a standard 9-5 job in which he is winning all sorts of awards. I still have a few concerns.
First, he thinks the managers at his present job don’t know what they are doing. So he is planning on giving them all a copy of a primerica book on how to manage a business. Fortunately it is out of print and he is having trouble finding it. This makes me think he has not quite gotten over Primerica.
Secondly, he is still a district something-or-other which is a few steps lower. Which means he is not “allowed” to advance to an RVP position again. It also frees him of managing an office and Saturday meetings. Nor does he go to any other meetings. However he is collecting money from previous clients every month. I do not feel right about him collecting money from this organization. He is in desperate need of cash and this brings in income. I am not sure how to approach this one. He is making money without doing anything but I don’t like the source.
Thirdly, he still has his IRA with Primerica. I have mine in Vanguard. Mine is doing extremely well and I keep hinting he should move his money. However is convinced that Primerica is as good as Vanguard and moving the money would not gain him anything.
How do I get him to finally break the chain with Primerica? Now that he is not as engaged with Primerica he is looking at people differently. They are no longer potential clients or recruits they are potential friends.
Also he is seeing the benefits of a real job. Now when he is sick he goes to the doctor with a $10.00 co-pay. He has time to do things that he wants when he is off work. Lastly he is not as stressed about money, now that he knows he has a steady paycheck.
Although some months are better then others.
Has anyone ever been in this situation? How do you get someone to take that leap of faith and let go of the past?
