I have been doing this line of work for several years now, and I was thinking a few days ago how lucky I am to be involved with such a great community and to be able to help so many people. There are very few fields that are as rewarding as being an insurance agent. I guess it’s just that time of year when we all start to reflect and give gratitude more than usual.
Not only do I have the privilege of being involved in this community, but I get to see people in all phases of their life. Whether it’s to celebrate a victory with them at a local event or to pull somebody back up when they have been involved in a major crisis in their life.
It could be a death in the family, loss of home or property, an automobile accident, or whatever the event may be. Sometimes it is in the role of an insurance agent, and sometimes it’s the chance to just be a friend or a sounding board.
The bottom line is this. I have the opportunity to encourage, lift up, and just be there for someone during a major crisis. And that is not something I take lightly. When someone trusts me enough to give me the opportunity to serve them as their local insurance agent, that is an opportunity to get to serve not only the person who gives me their business, but it gives me the opportunity to serve their entire family.
What a great life! There is nothing more rewarding than to be in the service of others. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your life.
