Jordan’s career path demonstrates why LaFontaine’s retention track record stands out. And advancing has brought financial stability to Jordan and his family.
“The higher you move up, the quicker you move up, the better you and your family will be at home,” he said.
Jordan now works an hour from home vs. six minutes when he was at the Highland store. He wasn’t always open to that, since a long commute could keep him from family events. Still, the LaFontaines continued to offer him more opportunities to advance, he said. When the Lansing proposal came, he and his family decided the time was right, now that his children’s ages range from junior high to college, with one conveniently at Michigan State University in East Lansing.
Jordan seeks to give employees the same chance to succeed he has had. His No. 1 objective: helping employees earn as much as possible.
“I will help them close. I will help them get as many people in front of them as possible,” Jordan said. “I will do anything it takes for them to close every possible customer to make the most income they can for their families and to grow their portfolio.”
