Happy 28th Anniversary, Premier!

Today is our 28th Premier Designs Anniversary! Congratulations and a BIG thanks to each of you!  No matter 8121632928_00fefa53aa_mhow long you have been in the Premier Family, please know – you have contributed so much to Premier and are special to us.  Thank you for all you are and all you do!

At times, it seems like we began only yesterday.  As I think about where we have come, how God has worked through Premier and all that He has done, I can’t help but reflect back to our beginnings and the reasons Joan and I, after a year of prayer, founded Premier.  My reflections of who, what and why we are in business:

  • We are a company dedicated to honoring God and serving people.
  • Our Founding Purpose was to enrich every life we touched.
  • We began this company with four unique reasons for existence.
  • We want people to know they are valuable and have worth, that God has a purpose for them.
  • Our Foundation has been built and continues to be based upon Biblical principles.
  • By giving, loving and serving others, we can build our business.

And all these years later, what are we now?  Oh, much larger.  The world has changed and America has changed; however, at Premier Designs our founding Principles and Purpose remain the same.  These reflections have not changed.  You can trust Premier.  We have desired to do things with integrity and to be a company who asks with each decision WIR WBP (What is Right and What is Best for Premier) and believes that serving others is real success.

Yes, some things will need to change.  Technology is one of those things.  It has grown a lot since our founding and has become a very important part of our business.  There are so many ways to get information to our Premier Family, but also, it gives us the opportunity to connect with others.  Do not ever forget though to Keep It Personal.  Technology gives us opportunities, but don’t forget what built Premier – and that’s the personal touch.

When we founded Premier Designs, little did we know all God was going to do.  Looking ahead, I believe no matter what changes, we can trust Him.  He has a good plan for Premier.  You are a part of something special.  Never take it for granted and may God protect and guide us in the years ahead.

Always to God be the glory,

Andy

  16. What an unbelievably AMAZING blessing God bestowed upon me and my life – when I signed my first contract to become a “Master Jeweler” over 18 years ago!! I had NO IDEA what truly awaited me! I cannot begin to imagine what my life would’ve looked like – had I not been guided by the Lord to take that “leap of faith” and jump into the most amazing journey with Premier Designs and Andy & Joan Horner! I am SO thankful and grateful to be a small part of such an incredible company and legacy!

  17. What a blessing Premier has been to my life and to my family’s life! It is unbelievable that it has already been over 5 years!!! I had no idea what was ahead of me when I signed my forms to be a jeweler, April of 2008! Premier has been more than just a business to me! It has totally gotten my family out of debt but more than that it has helped me find myself and given me an outlet to minister far greater than ever before! I remember making the decision to go to my very first National Rally just 2 1/2 months after recieving my jeweler number! It was the best decision I ever made in my Premier career and I haven’t missed one (national or regional) yet! It was at Rally when I realized that Premier was no ordinary company and I knew I was in this for LIFE!!! Thank you to the Horner’s for their amazing vision and courage to start something different and the FAITH to do it right! Thank you to the Premier Designs Home Office Staff for all the countless hours your work to make our jobs easier! You will never be told THANK YOU enough!!! Happy BIRTHDAY, Premier! So thankful to be apart of YOU!!!

  27. Happy 28th Anniversary Premier & Horner families! I am a new jeweler since late September & off to a slow start. Tomorrow is my first show on my own & while very nervous I am excited. I am going to be 64 on Nov 12th and another of those reasons why you started this business. We are raising a granddaughter (now 13) and need the income. Not what we expected for our “golden yrs”, but believing all things are possible and working with a company like Premier Designs and the biblical principles behind it give me hope to “expect yet another miracle” in our future. Thank you for giving second chances to so many. We will do our best to be worthy of your leadership. God Bless you all and your TERRIFIC staff.

  28. I had NO IDEA what a blessing Premier would be in our lives when I began my Premier journey in 1997…16 years ago!! Nothing makes me happier than blessing others with the gift of Premier…whether it be giving free jewelry or giving hope through this amazing business. I am so grateful that someone cared enough to share Premier with me…someone with low self esteem….getting ready to move from GA to MI…and fearful of speaking in public. Premier is the BEST and I thank God for bringing this business to me when I wasn’t even looking for it. I love Premier more than ever…to GOD be the GLORY for the things HE has done!!
