After high-school I went to college to learn about computer technology. From 1991 to 2000 I worked as a computer programmer in the corporate world.
When Y2K came along and passed the demand for computer programmers decreased. I took at position at an insurance agency helping with their website. While there I was able to see and hear what was going on and thought it was interesting, so I went and obtained my insurance license. Here we are 20 + years later I can honestly say “I love my job”.
A friend once asked me “Why do you love what you do”. My answer was this: I used to be a computer programmer, there was always a result that was needed, but the way you designed the code to get to that result could be done multiple ways. With insurance, to me, it’s the same. There is always a result, which is to get coverage, but the way you get the coverage can occur multiple ways. I enjoy the challenge of obtaining that result.
Insurance is a necessary evil. We all need it, but most do not know what they have, need or even why they have the policy they do. Seeing this to often I wanted to see if I can help. I created “Risk Intelligence”, a platform which I educate my audience about the why’s, how’s, what’s and when’s in the insurance industry.
