10 Reasons Your Loved Ones Want YOU to Become a Farm Bureau Agent
March 25, 2015
For many, each year seems to get a little harder to maintain that perfect work-life balance, as well as continue to grow and excel in your career. At Farm Bureau Financial Services, we understand how crucial that balance is, and why you and your loved ones will find that joining our exceptional team of agents might be the perfect fit. See the 10 reasons why you and your loved ones will benefit from a Farm Bureau career!
1. You may be home early.
Late nights at the office or quality time with your friends and family? You have the flexibility to choose what’s most important to you when you become a Farm Bureau insurance agent. Farm Bureau agents are their own bosses and create their own schedules, so balancing work and home life is made easier. Though some days require more or less hours than others, depending on client/member needs and deadlines, the hard work is offset with the freedom of having a flexible schedule.
2. You will be able to build relationships.
Flexible work schedules mean Farm Bureau agents don’t have to spend every moment in the office. They spend less time traveling and chasing leads and more time building relationships within their communities. And, because some of this may happen from the comfort of home, you will have more time with your loved ones.
3. You'll protect your neighbors.
If you're someone who genuinely wants to help your community achieve its goals, being a Farm Bureau agent may be right for you. Farm Bureau agents offer a wide variety of products and services to help protect what matters most to their client/members, including family members, friends and more!
4. You'll be a "superhero" to your community.
Helping your client/members identify gaps in their insurance through a Farm Bureau SuperCheck can mean the difference between replacing the home they once had and having to move. It can mean the difference between finding a towing company and having the truck already there. It can mean the difference between helping a family’s future and…not. Your “superpowers” in good communication and helping others will be used to customize each client/member’s coverage and prepare for life’s “what if’s.”
5. You may have more money to spend on hobbies.
Farm Bureau agents are paid a commission on the products they sell, so there is no limit on how much an agent can earn. It’s a simple principle: the more you sell, the more you’ll earn. Don’t forget, the cash bonuses you qualify for may be the perfect opportunity to spend on a loved one.
6. You have the opportunity to see the country and world.
The top 15 percent of our agents qualify for All American, Super All American and Pacesetters, some of Farm Bureau’s most exclusive clubs. Membership in these clubs are reserved for the best-of-the-best, as agents will enjoy incredible destinations like New York, Montreal, or the Bahamas. When you become an agent, you and your loved ones won’t want to miss out on these exclusive benefits.
7. You will meet a lot of people.
Farm Bureau agents are considered leaders within their communities by networking, building relationships, volunteering, and neighborhood involvement. What does this mean for you and loved ones? When you help people protect what’s most important to them, people recognize you as a trusted resource within the community.
8. You will continue to learn and grow.
Just like you and your loved ones, Farm Bureau values continued education and engaging in meaningful professional learning experiences. It’s the reason why we invest in the training and education of each new agent. Our agents come from all types of professional backgrounds, from sales to marketing. No matter what your experience may be, when you choose to join our team, we’ll equip you with the right tools and resources to learn the ins and outs of insurance.
9. You’ll never work the same day twice.
Goodbye to set hours and “typical” days! Your loved ones know you as someone who is curious and passionate and who thrives in a fast-paced environment. As a Farm Bureau agent, you’ll leverage these qualities to help your client/members in a number of important ways. From identifying gaps in coverage through a Farm Bureau SuperCheck to arriving at the scene when the unexpected happens, you’ll enjoy an exciting career centered on protecting your community members when they need it most.
10. You will likely experience career satisfaction.
Increased levels of job stress and unhappiness can quickly lead to career burnouts. When you join the Farm Bureau team, our hope is that you feel a great satisfaction from the work that you do, and thus, it leads to a happier and more fulfilling life.
