How You Can Help Protect the American Dream

June 23, 2021

The idea of the “American Dream” was born in the 1950s. Adults in this generation lived through the Great Depression and World War II, and they believed they had survived the worst and that the best was yet to come. Their credo was that working hard and saving money would ensure the best life for them and their family. Now, several decades later, the American Dream is still alive, but with a twist. Today, people are less concerned with how much money they save and more focused on making upgrades to their lives — and maintaining them.

Upgrades can come in a variety of forms: a holiday bonus may turn into a new smartwatch; a promotion could mean finally building that addition onto your house; or a new, better job could result in a new, better home. This shift in our culture has changed the way we protect our lives and our possessions, and Farm Bureau agents are a vital part of this new world. They understand what needs to be protected in everyday life, and they work to make sure their client/members have the proper homeowners coverage. Find out how our agents help protect this new iteration of the American Dream.

The Next Big Thing

Many people aim to own the fanciest and shiniest toys they can afford, but just having them isn’t enough. Most people know that a new car should be insured, but what about a new high-definition TV or home entertainment center? A Farm Bureau agent works with community members to protect things they’ve worked hard to gain. From air conditioners to computers to ovens, a Farm Bureau agent knows what needs to be protected. When the unexpected happens, a Farm Bureau agent is by their side to help.

If You Build It, We Will Protect It

An upgraded life could also come with enhancements to homes, making homeowners insurance a necessity. However, remodeling any part of a house calls for an update to insurance coverage. Build a new deck? Add a garage? Tear down something on a property? Farm Bureau agents make sure that their client/members can feel confident about transforming their houses into the homes they want. Our agents protect their communities, and that starts in their neighborhoods.

Keeping It in The Family

Sometimes upgrades aren’t a new item, but a gift. Family valuables — like jewelry, collectibles and other historical items that are passed from generation to generation — should be covered by homeowners insurance. Protecting what matters most to client/members is what Farm Bureau does best! While these items themselves can’t be replaced if they’re damaged or lost, an agent can help with peace of mind when the unexpected strikes.

Achieve Your Dreams

When you become a Farm Bureau agent, you’re helping your community members achieve and celebrate their dreams. As you guide them through the next stages of their lives — or homes — your client/member’s successes are your successes. Your knowledge can help protect everything that your community has worked hard for over the years.
