Rep on the Rise: Ries B.

Ries B.

TITLE: Sales Rep
RESIDES IN: Iowa
START DATE: August 2019

Ries attended the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and graduated in 2018 with a degree in business and construction management. He began his construction career in Dubuque, Iowa, but eventually wanted something more—more opportunities and a clear path to success. Ries saw the income potential in a supplemental insurance career and gave it a try. He made his way to Platinum for its team atmosphere and top-of-the-line products.

In his first 15 weeks as a Platinum sales rep, Ries quickly attained success. He surpassed his income goals, earned over $14,000 in bonuses, broke five personal records and raced to the top of Platinum’s rookie leaderboard. Ries has caught the attention of Platinum’s sales leaders and has fast tracked a few of his personal goals as well.

Q&A With Ries

Did you have specific goals in changing careers entirely?

The big goal for me was to break the $100,000 mark. If I broke that within a couple of years of graduating college, or whatever it might have been, then I would be sitting pretty well for a financial future.

What makes the Platinum sales opportunity stand out to you?

It’s really an opportunity where someone can go out and truly get paid what they’re worth. …I can go out and work as hard as I want, and my paycheck is going to reflect that at the end of the week. So, if I go out and work very, very hard, I’m going to be rewarded for that.

What have you been able to do through the Platinum opportunity that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise?

This career has brought me a number of different financial opportunities. I was able to purchase a Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and I just paid cash for a house. …It needs a ton of work, but with what I’ve got right now, I should be able to fund the whole renovation process with cash. By the end of it, I’ll be able to own the place in cash. 

What has helped you achieve your level of success here at Platinum?

I think just the guidance from the leaders out here. They lead by example, which I believe is huge. …They’re out in the trenches doing the same things we’re doing every single day. They know the Process, and they know how to help you along.
