There have been a lot of responses to my blog asking me how I got started selling insurance. When I was a single parent, I had to figure out very quickly a way to work in a business that would cater around my 2 small children. A friend who was also an insurance agent and single at the time, introduced me to the profession. The 1st year in the business, I was the top agent in the company I worked for on a consistent monthly basis. I saw the potential of this career and loved what I did, which made it very easy to excel in. If I had to give any advice to someone starting out, I'd say, in all honesty — "It's a "numbers game." Don't give up when you have a bad day. Always do the right thing for the client and don't think about the commissions you will make. If this career was easy, everyone would be doing it. It's not easy, but it's a very rewarding career.
In this episode, there was some talk about planning Lauri's wedding. I have never planned a wedding other than my own, but I truly would love to be a part of Lauri's wedding plans. I know she will be a beautiful bride and am so happy that she has found her "soul mate." This episode also gave a glimpse into Donn and I unwinding in Havasu. We have owned our home in AZ for over 6 years now. The friendships I have out there are very genuine and very solid. My friends in Coto are very dear to me also, however I feel a bit more "at ease" with my AZ friends.
