How my insurance career took off…
I started my insurance career on August 2, 2008 right after my wife and I moved back from Tennessee where we attended college at Lee University. I remember one of the first things my father talked to me about when I joined the family business was getting involved in different insurance groups. He wanted me to surround myself with people my age and who were looking to further their insurance career.
Little did I know that suggestion would not only catapult my insurance career, but it would lead to me meeting some of my closest friends in my personal and professional life.
I’ve had the privilege to be part of so many great organizations from Advisor Evolved to Agency Intelligence to the Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina to Insurance Agency Owners Alliance and others.
Without these groups and organizations, and more importantly the leaders, I would not be where I am and this blog wouldn’t exist.
As cheesy as this will sound I want to say thank you to all of those people from the bottom of my heart. A special thank you to (in alphabetical order) Allyson Knott, Aubie Knight, Chris Langille, Jason Cass, Joey Giangola, Haley Everett, Kelly Erstine, Natalie Simpson, Nick Ayers, Rena Todd, and Ryan Hanley.
