When we started the company in 2009, we asked ourselves this question. It was our way of checking our commitment to—and appreciation for—our clients and agents. It holds us accountable to the highest standard possible.
Our answer was—and still is—10 out of 10.
For each of these critical areas, we ask ourselves 2 questions to help you grow your income fast and and build your business strong...
Where are you on that? And how do you get to 10?
With humble beginnings in a garage, Appreciation Financial first served some of the most underappreciated workers in America—teachers. Our focus has broadened today with thousands of agents and hundreds of offices across the nation, but our name continues to define our character. Everything about our people and platform serves one purpose—to make you an appreciated member of our family.
Commitment, excellence, and doing the right thing is a challenging standard. We use the 1 to 10 scale as our gut check. Asking each other where we are on the scale is our version of iron sharpening iron. We'll start by asking YOU now, on a scale of 1 to 10: How committed are you to your clients, to your values, and to the goals you've set for yourself? If you want the success that comes from accountability, you're in the right place.
Our leaders will be with you every step of the way. They're committed to your success. And when you commit to their coaching, you'll tap into a constant stream of training, encouragement, recognition, mentorship, and friendship—exactly what everyone starting and growing a business needs.

With elite financial products, worksite access, and potential clients nationwide, a career with Appreciation Financial is expanding the earning potential and long lasting stability of your income.
We pursue these ideals every day with C.A.N.I. (Constant and Never-Ending Improvement)
Coachable and accountable, we have the grit to keep going when others quit, to finish the races we start, and to make it to the top together.
With the character to do the right thing no matter what, we take responsibility for our goals, our clients, and our team members.
All in, all out, all the way. That's how we play. By showing how capable, tenacious, and bold we are, we give others permission to do the same.
We equip others with skills to be independent and strong. With each person we uplift and enable, we all become more powerful and free.
That's because we've witnessed so many of them unfold. Our leaders and agents have walked alongside each other through weddings, funerals, graduations, defeats, and victories. In an industry with so much turnover, our family stays, connects, supports, and celebrates each other.

We believe the hard work of the Appreciation Family deserves to be recognized and rewarded in style. That means unforgettable award ceremonies and incentive reward milestones. It also means international trips and ongoing team events across America, each packed with celebratory acknowledgement for our agents—just like you'd expect from a family that truly cares about each other.
This annual trip rewards team members with enduring memories and well deserved relaxation for their hard work.
Agents who earn $250,000 during a set qualifying period enjoy rest, relaxation, and adventure on this annual excursion.
Agents, who follow our model by serving clients in person and out and about, can qualify for our quarterly contest.
When you hit $50k in a rolling 30 day period as an Appreciation Financial agent, you'll receive our prestigous first incentive gift—an exquisite Brietling watch. Join the ranks and wear it with pride.
Agents who reach $100k of earning in a rolling 365 day period are awarded with our distinguished blue saphire company ring. Show it off and when it gets noticed, share your success helping families.
Annual conventions are for more than training, recognition, and strategy preparation for the next year. They commemorate our agents' incredible achievements and accomplishments from the past year and cement our goals for the next one.
Four times each year at accessible locations, the Appreciation Family gathers for intensive training summits. You'll learn about products and services, licenses, leadership, success insights, entrepreneurship, and experience the power of our culture.
