Platinum a Smart First Step for Young Entrepreneur

Ryan C

TITLE: Sales Leader
START DATE: May 2019

The Platinum sales opportunity has helped many people stabilize their retirement plans – but they weren’t typically 18 years old when they started.

Ryan became a Platinum sales intern in summer 2019. He had grown up around the skilled trades, and, while it shaped his incredible work ethic, he wasn’t interested in a long-term career in manual labor. His dreams included a robust income stream, real estate investments and retirement by the age of 55. During his Platinum internship, he realized he had found the vehicle to make it all happen, and he turned his internship into a full-time career.

In just his first seven months with Platinum, Ryan earned over $12,000 in bonuses and qualified for a trip to Cabo, Mexico, and Dana Point, California.

“In the beginning, I was just trying to pay off my student loan and get a fairly nice car. I had them both done in the first two months.”

Ryan acknowledges that this career is certainly not easy money. His biggest fear was losing money in a full commission position. His parents shared the same concerns. So did his friends, who discouraged him from even attempting the challenge of a sales career. Luckily, Ryan understood the value of believing in himself and surrounding himself with supportive voices. “I’ve never lost money in a week. I’ve never not sold anything – or lost anything.”

Ryan’s fortitude, hard work and goal-focused approach has him on an impressive trajectory for any person, but especially a 21-year-old. He has already taken steps into leadership positions with Platinum. He is building wealth, which includes plans for his first rental property in 2021 or 2022. Whether Ryan retires early in his Florida dream home by the age of 55 isn’t really a matter of if, but when at this point.

Ryan’s Tips for Success With Platinum:

  1. Give this career a try, and give it your full effort. The potential outcome is worth the try. If it doesn’t work, the only thing you are out is a little bit of time.
  2. Follow the Process and ask a lot of questions. The people on your team and at the home office are always willing to help.
  3. Don’t be scared to go to the door. If it doesn’t go well, there is always another door.
  4. Build friendships. I’ve always liked that Platinum is a family-owned company, and one of the most enjoyable aspects of this career is the people I’ve become close with and traveled with.
