What’s it like to work for Farm Bureau?
I love working for Farm Bureau – it’s rewarding and challenging all at the same time. I believe we have a great market in Arizona, and I think our agents do an outstanding job protecting the livelihoods and futures of our client/members.
While there isn’t a typical day as a Farm Bureau agent, do your best to describe your day.
I start my morning at 5:30 a.m. with the gym, then I come home to see my two kids and wife before I head to work. I get to the office and tackle emails and touch base with my staff to get a game plan for the day. From there I prioritize my work, which includes phone calls, meetings, appointments and meetings with client/members.
I try really hard to get home by 5 p.m. each day to spend time with my children and wife before it gets too late in the evening. But I also do a lot of work in the evenings to try to get ahead and prepare for the next day. It’s really important to have a work-life balance and I think that one of the great perks of working for Farm Bureau.
What motivates you as an agent?
In this industry, it’s all dictated by your self-motivation. If you don’t get out in front of people, you aren’t going to grow your business. Personally, I want to be the best agent in Arizona – that’s my goal.
How are you involved in the community?
I’m involved in a number of ways in the community with food drives, but one of the neat ways that I make myself visible is that I have a moving truck that’s wrapped with my name and the Farm Bureau logo on it, and when my client/members move, the truck is available for them to use. It’s a great way to “pay it back” to client/members and it gets a lot of attention around town.
How does being a Farm Bureau agent differ from other types of jobs you’ve had?
I spent 10 years in the real estate industry before becoming a Farm Bureau agent. As a real estate agent, your client typically bought one house and it was one transaction and done. But being a Farm Bureau agent, you have multiple opportunities to serve your client/members with home, auto, life and more. The experience has been exponentially valuable.
