Happy Holidays

Well, it is about that time when we reflect about all the fun we had these year and realize we're not getting any younger. I actually caught myself saying "When I was your age....." the other day and I had to stop. Anyways, enough of my rantings about going shopping on a Saturday like an idiot.......

I've spent the last month doing everything I can to get ready for the holiday season and things have been going well. As I approach the 1 year mark and the anniversary of my agency draws near in a few weeks I find myself contemplating the direction I'm going. Recently I've talked with a few new agents and each of them has said to me that I should offer my services on a grander scale. Although my goals haven't changed, I have decided to pursue an endeavor that will probably cause some of my old high school teachers to wonder if all that time I spent sleeping in class was just my effort to conserve energy for what's in store in the near future. I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I think it is now time to help bring in other people to the wonderful world of insurance and say Good-Bye to being an underwear agent and focus on what's important to me.

Updating my business and marketing plan is currently my priority before the years closes out, as well as my second project, which will be implemented in January 2009 after I take care of a few things first. I've got a great feeling about 2008 and think that the upcoming year will be the benchmark of my career. Having spent the 1st year experiencing a myriad of ups and down I'm comfortable enough to say what areas need improvement and what areas are solid.

There's about a 1000 things I need to get done and although the increased workload will prove to be challenging, I'm experiencing a feeling of revitalization combined with excitement and trepidation about what lies ahead. Stepping out of your comfort zone is something I highly recommend to anybody who wants to push themselves and truly see their potential. I'll keep you posted as thing progress.

Have a safe and happy holiday season. Here's to the new year.

So,

What is important for your plans?
You still in the insurance business or moving on to different venture?

I'm still in the insurance business and will stay for many years to come. I'm merely taking a different business approach.
