When Greg Graham graduated in 2004 from Temple University with a degree in elementary education, he likely thought his career path was set. But the future had something else in store. After teaching elementary school for seven years, he knew he needed to make a change. When he saw the amazing success his wife and sister-in-law had with American Income Life Insurance Company (AIL) , he joined AIL in 2011 as a Corporate Trainer and moved into sales in early 2013. “Moving from Agent to SGA in four years has been one of my greatest achievements with AIL,” says Greg, “in addition to experiencing what ‘Opportunity Unlimited’ really means. It’s tremendously rewarding to help so many other people grow in their careers and accomplish their goals while helping people in the communities we service. Our products provide financial security and peace of mind.”
Alex Graham graduated from the Fox School of Business at Temple University. She started her business career as an outsides sales representative for ADP. After seeing her sister have a lot of success at American Income Life, Alex decided to leave her current position and pursue opportunity unlimited. Since December of 2009, Alex has went from a career agent to a Master General Agent, managing several different offices. She couldn't be happier with the decision she made back in 2009 to truly feel that she is paid what she is worth. What attracted her most to AIL was knowing that her individual work ethic and drive would be rewarded with growth and financial opportunity.

Jordan worked in the field for a few years before interviewing with the TEAM on his 27th birthday. He’s most proud of moving quickly through the leadership ranks and loves any time his TEAM performs well enough to be recognized on an international level.

Dan has known Greg Graham, agency owner, for over 25 years. Dan saw the success that Greg and his wife, Alex, were having and became curious. He wasn’t sure if a career in financial services was for him due to his lack of background in the field. However, he felt that his passion for helping others reach their goals and potential was something that would translate well. With the TEAM, Dan feels like he has the privilege to do that on a daily basis now. 15 months with the TEAM and multiple promotions, Dan says he’s excited to see what the years to come have in store for him.
