Former Occupation: Clinical Psychologist
The Drive to Succeed
As a boy in Ecuador, Francisco was always bright and driven. "I wanted to – and still want to – do what no one else has done. I want to be out in front every time."
Frank's drive took him to Rutgers University and to complete his doctorate at Seton Hall. He then went on to make a name for himself as a clinical instructor at his alma mater and later with the New Jersey Institute of Psychotherapy.
After establishing and growing a successful practice, Frank began to cast around for another challenge. "I enjoyed helping people and the lifestyle of achievement – but I was working 80 hour weeks and still in debt," remembers Frank. "So, when I saw the Primerica Opportunity, I was sold. Primerica was a way I could help people and realize ever-greater success personally as well. You know, debt is a huge issue for many people. It tears apart families and contributes to a lot of misery. Helping people get their financial lives in order and, for some, building a business was very attractive to me."
Only two years before he would be eligible to retire with full benefits, Frank left his life in science and academia behind to join Primerica. He hasn't looked back.
