I was a RVP in the Shane Rudman organization and met some great people in the business who did good things for people. However, I met more self centered, unscrupulous people who were Regional Vice Presidents or above who took advantage of clients as well as team memebers.
For a company and a leadership who consistently preached about doing the right thing for people, this organization was an embarassment to financial services,RVP's were more concerned about putting on a good show, making their bonuses for the month and taking $199 from the 18 year old kid to make their hiring goal for the next trip or contest. The companies business model should be taught to high school freshman on the lowlife sales techniques that Primerica and other companies use to take advantage of clients. You can buy better termlife insurance on line through a little research, always find a better mortgage, the fees are exhorbitant, the loans have a prepayment penalty, and their mutual funds are mediocre. However, the company gives a motivational inspiring presentation with good financial facts and makes you feel like you can make a million dollars.
A lot of people have made a million dollars through hard work, but having been around many of them they are not good people and have financially devastated many clients as well as teammates. My advice is run the other way, don't drink the kool-aid and if Shane Rudman is your hero or idol, you have settled for less. Although, he can give a great presentation.
I'm sure Dale Carnegie Institute would love him.
