What do you think makes you different from other companies similar to yours?
I take the time to work with my clients on a consultative approach. I design a personalized plan for each client as every person’s plan is different.
What do you like about doing business in the Omaha area?
What I love about Omaha is that people here understand the need for insurance. It’s not just about their homes or autos. They care about protecting their livelihood, families, and do very well at planning for the future.
What kind of community organizations/groups are you involved with?
I am a sponsor of the Elkhorn Baseball Association , a member of the Millard Business Association and a member of NAIFA (The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors).
Do you have a business philosophy or mission statement?
My philosophy derives from my desire to help others. No two plans are the same so I take the time to get to know my clients. The more we know about our clients situations, the more effectively we can protect them.
What changes have you seen in the industry and your company in the past few years?
More and more people see the great need for life insurance and disability to protect their families and income. This will be a great focus for us in protecting our clients.
What do you see happening with the business in the next five years?
Now more than ever it is important to have an advisor that will look for discounts and quality products designed specifically for you. With current economic conditions, damaging storms, and financial uncertainty, having an advisor that you trust is key to getting through any uncertainty in the next few years. Communication and trust will be a key role in those relationships with our clients.
What is one of the biggest challenges that your company has faced?
One of the major challenges I have faced is finding time to get in front of all the people who need and want my help. I’m constantly working on time management to effectively help as many people as possible.
What has been your most important achievement as a business?
One of the most important achievements has been being able to put together plans for clients at all of their different stages of life. Small steps reap huge rewards for your family.
What was the biggest turning point in your business?
The biggest turning point for me was when I realized how much I can actually help people! It is a great feeling to know that we can do so much for our clients.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about your business that most people don’t know?
We are a full service Insurance and Financial Services Agency. We not only protect what our clients own but also build plans for their futures.
What is one goal for your business that you have yet to accomplish?
My goal is to continue to grow as an Agency. We’re currently looking to add one or two more producers to our company. Once we accomplish that we will evaluate our business and re-establish
our goals from there.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I’m currently working with a small business in Lincoln on a buy/sell agreement. There are great benefits from this as it helps the owner to keep a quality employee from pursuing other career options, as well as builds funds for the employee to buy out the owner at an agreed upon time. The employee also feels like there is a commitment from the owner to sell him the business in the future. This is just a small example of some of the things we can handle for our clients.
