It's your favorite extroverted, frequently posting, single mom insurance agent here, and today, I want to share a little piece of my world with you. You see, when I tell people what I do for a living, their usual response is, "I never thought you sold insurance." And I must admit, I absolutely love defying stereotypes and surprising people in the best way possible.
You might wonder why an extrovert with a big personality and a degree in marketing would choose a career in insurance, of all things. Well, my journey into this industry was quite unexpected, but it has turned out to be the best decision I've ever made.
First, let me tell you a bit about my background. I'm a single mom with 2 girls who thrives on being around people, but who also loves her “me” time. I love social gatherings, connecting with others, and building meaningful relationships. My social media is practically a photo album of our family adventures and endless snapshots of my tribe because they are my world.
So, how did I end up in the world of insurance? I always had a desire to make a difference in people's lives. When I was looking for a career that would provide stability and the opportunity to help others, insurance was not the first thing that came to mind. But as I delved into it, I realized how incredibly impactful this field can be.
(My Dad’s positive input helped too!)
Insurance isn't just about selling policies; it's about providing peace of mind, security, and protection for the people we serve. It's about ensuring that when life takes an unexpected turn, our clients are prepared, and their families are taken care of. I quickly discovered that I could use my extroverted nature and love for connecting with people to make a genuine impact.
While I may not have initially envisioned myself as an insurance agent, I've come to see this career as my calling. Being a single mom, I understand the importance of safeguarding our loved ones' futures, especially in uncertain times. I've seen firsthand the difference insurance can make, and it's a passion that drives me every day.
When my house burned down, it was my insurance that enables me to pick up the pieces and keep going. Without having adequate insurance, I have no idea where I would be today.
What truly excites me is the personal touch I can bring to insurance. I don't just see clients as policyholders; I see them as individuals with unique stories and needs. I take the time to get to know their families, understand their needs, and help them navigate the complex world of insurance. This approach might not be what people expect from an insurance agent, but it's what sets me apart and makes my job so rewarding.
And it’s not just me. My entire team at the Shaw Agency has the same values, and together we believe we go over and beyond for our clients.
In my blended family, where love knows no boundaries, I've learned the importance of protecting what matters most. I carry this perspective into my work, and it fuels my determination to help others create the safety net they need. I'm not just selling insurance; I'm selling peace of mind, and there's nothing else I'd rather do.
So, the next time someone says, "I never thought you sold insurance," I'll simply smile and say, "I never thought I would either, but I love it more than I ever imagined." It's a passion that allows me to be the extroverted, open, and caring person that I am, all while making a real, positive impact on people's lives.
In the world of insurance, I've found my calling, and I'm proud to be part of an industry that helps families like mine protect their futures and dreams. It's not just about policies and numbers; it's about the heartwarming stories and connections that make this journey so rewarding.
