“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful.”-Eric Thomas
Growing up, I always knew through hard work and dedication, I would be and wanted to be successful; I just did not know what would be my vessel to get there. At age 27, I obtained my life insurance license which started me down the path that would catapult me to where I am today. I anticipated a lucrative career in the insurance industry due to the success I had already observed by my mentor, Troy Miles. I was always told if you want to be a millionaire; find a millionaire and learn from them. I found that plus a lasting friendship and brotherhood in Troy.
The next step was finding the right company. At first, we were working with companies that made promises they couldn’t deliver on. Between waiting to see if policies would be approved and if we would be paid, the bills were stacking up high. Then, we stumbled across Lincoln Heritage. This company not only delivered on all their promises, issued 98% of their policies, and paid upon submission, but they also enabled a pathway for my dreams to come true.
All of this would not be possible if Mr. Jack Londen had not begun his career as an agent, enabling him to experience what we experience. This facilitated him when he began Lincoln Heritage by molding a company around agents and for agents. I sincerely appreciate him for that. With Troy Miles as our leader of The Miles Group Agency, we have duplicated this type of environment, which launched us into becoming the fastest growing agency for Lincoln Heritage Life Insurance Company. I am proud to be one of the top MGA’s (Managing General Agent) in The Miles Group and I continually look forward to our rapid growth.
In any aspiring venture, nothing worth doing is ever easy, but Lincoln Heritage provides the tools to help you build a successful career. With hard work and dedication to this business every day, I have grown financially, mentally, and spiritually. People not with Lincoln Heritage often wonder how I can be so passionate about what I do. I challenge you and them to take a closer look and see where my passion lies. Not only does Lincoln Heritage provide the avenue to allow me to help clients, agents, and my own family on a daily basis, but I work in an amazing family environment coupled with extraordinary home office support. We have such a remarkable environment that I have had the pleasure to enjoy several dinners and visits with our CEO, Mr. Jack Londen, and our Regional Director, Bradly Jennings, on various occasions.
In addition, Lincoln Heritage presented me the opportunity to experience my first vacation in Boca Raton, FL. Since then, I was able to take 7 vacations in one year. In the past five years, I have been to places, such as, but not limited to Jamaica, Bahamas, Scotland, Florida, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Cozumel, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, Panama and many more. What an incredible journey since August 2009 when I was first appointed with Lincoln Heritage! It has been and still is truly a blessing to know at the young age of 32, I have found the company that I will retire from. Let’s Keep Growing!
