My personal story in the insurance industry began when I was a sophomore in college working at a local cable company. During that time my mother brought it to my attention that I needed to invest in a life insurance policy to pay off my student loans in case the unthinkable should happen. Also at the same time, my grandmother had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and suddenly insurance became a hot topic within our family.
Coincidentally, I was offered an agent position at a national insurance company (whom I still partner with today) that could cover my grandmother, I instantly accepted the opportunity and immediately quit my job. That allowed me to embark on a successful career initially helping only the senior population.
