I got started in the insurance industry when I was 19 years. My father has been in the industry for the last 30 years. I was raised around the industry, and I never thought I would be in the industry myself. 

For several years, I did insurance until one day; a Mid-Missouri peer called me to help train insurance agents to better their door-knocking skills. After that day, I realized that I found my passion for training other insurance agents. 

While I started transitioning into training insurance agents, I began posting videos on YouTube. For weeks and months, nobody was watching. A year and two years in, I was hitting small milestones. Eventually, I got to the point where people were reaching out to me – the demand started to come in. 

I started realizing how to fulfill the demand that our market needed. Little by little, I started building our business and our brand. 

You have to remember that when you’re looking at other people’s lives, you can’t look at their chapter 40 and your chapter 5. 

Everything that we do in our office is essential.
