My name is Eric Giglione and I joined American Income Life in 1979. When I joined the Company back then, I never knew what I was in for, and here’s why: after all those years, I found home. What I found with American Income Life is that I was able to come here with a dream, with a hope, because I come from a working family. I could make a life for myself, and I was able to do that and create this economic life that I could only dream of and not to mention that I could create these friendships – these amazing friendships – over the years. We get to see our children grow, and some of them get married and give us grandchildren. There’s wealth, beyond what we all think of as wealth, in this great Company. So, for me, it’s been that; and now, in this phase of my life what I’m very excited about is to inspire others to come to this Company and do what I did – don’t just date us. Marry us – make a deep commitment like I did and so many others have, and then you’ll discover the best that is within you. But most importantly, this is a Company made up of fantastic people. When I want a friend who can help me in fathering my daughter, I’ve got a wealth of men in this Company who I can reach out to – so many people to talk to. So, for me, this Company, for those of us who join and really decide to stay here, is more than just a career. It’s a place where you can fulfill your deepest hopes, your passions, your destinies, your purpose, and then help other people to discover their passions, their purposes, their destinies – that’s what American Income Life means to me. That’s what it has done for me and can do for anyone who has the skills, who likes people, and wants to make a great life. This is the place to do it.
My name is David Ackerman. I’m the State General Agent in New Jersey. I came to American Income in 2003 after a long career in financial journalism. What really attracted me to American Income was the unlimited opportunity. What I saw was the chance to not only impact people and change lives, but really to be able to shape my own future to be able to go into the direction I wanted to without any limitations.
I know what really stood out to me was that, as a journalist, I was as far away from what I do now as you could possibly imagine. I had built up some experience on the leadership side. I spent time overseas. I’ve traveled around the world, but I didn’t really feel as though I was giving back in the way that I should have been. So, this was really the chance to marry those two things together – to be able to help people and build a fabulous career. I know that, for me, coming to the Company and being able to grow without anybody telling me that I couldn’t, without anyone saying that I wasn’t allowed to get to where I wanted to go, that was really the most exciting part. So, what I would suggest to anyone who is interested in a career change, particularly those who are looking to pursue a path in leadership, absolutely reach out to us in New Jersey. We would be very excited to talk to you.
