A Successful Jump From Military to Sales


TITLE: Team Leader
FAMILY: Wife, four children, six grandchildren
RESIDES IN: Oklahoma
START DATE: November 2005

Upon graduating from high school, Ken served in the military for 13 ½ years, taking the lead of an Army parachute team and developing a passion for leadership. When his military experience concluded, Ken jumped right into driving jet powered trucks across the country. With a resume highlighting his skills in skydiving and fast cars, Ken was at a standstill when his truck driving days came to an end. “About the only job I could find was selling cars, and I really didn’t enjoy sitting in an office waiting for people to come to me,” Ken explained.

When Ken was first introduced to Platinum’s product options, he contemplated purchasing a policy, but he didn’t immediately consider the option of a sales career with Platinum. Once he learned about the career growth and leadership opportunities available at Platinum, the opportunity became more attractive to him.

“Platinum is a great opportunity, a great avenue to change your life. It’s not for everybody, but those that take advantage of it and give it a chance will likely find success.”

Ken’s military experience instilled in him a desire to lead in everything he approaches, and Platinum provided Ken an opportunity to thrive as a leader and coach. Ken also loves Platinum’s push to consistently better itself. “I think Platinum’s leaders are always looking to improve and are willing to listen to the reps’ suggestions. They are not afraid to change in order to have the best products.”

In addition to advancement and leadership, Ken’s lifestyle has been positively impacted by the financial advantages with Platinum. “The residual income is something most careers don’t offer. It doesn’t sound like anything at first, but that little percentage over time just keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger!”

Ken and his wife enjoy spending time boating and jet-skiing on the lake. Despite being away from his wife during the week, Ken values the family atmosphere and support provided by his Platinum team.
