    DOI: Brian Bradley, Kindness is Contagious

    On this month's Agency Nation Radio Declaration of Independents we meet Brian Bradley, founder and co-owner of Covenant Insurance Services in Nebraska. The challenges of life as both a father and working in the community with a nonprofit presented Bradley with a dilemma. He loved giving back to the community, working with people and making a difference, “but if you can't take care of yourself, obviously something had to break," Bradley says.

    In 2009, Bradley made the decision to leave the nonprofit world and began working for a captive insurer. Seven years later, Bradley founded Covenant Insurance Services with Stan Gatchenko, his co-worker and “work wife."

    Today, along with his duties as an independent agent, Bradley remains very active in his church, his community and particularly in the foster care and adoption community. He and his wife are currently the proud parents of 8 children.

    Tune in as host Olivia Overman, content editor, and Brain Bradley talk about his journey into insurance and what the future has in store for the Bradley family.

#1 Insurance Podcast

I’ve listened to many, but this is the most informative and enjoyable option out there. Great production quality and Joey interviews as well as any I’ve heard. Give it a shot.

The film reel is awful to listen to

I like the podcast but have to fast forward through some of the best parts because the film reel sound is tough to listen to in my AirPods. Would be nice to remove that and then I would continue to tune in. Anyone else feeling that way?

Inspiring and insightful!

I enjoy listening to Joey Giangola on the Agency Nation podcast very much. I always learn something that I can apply to my practice as a high net worth insurance adviser. This podcast also keeps me up to date on industry happenings and inspires me to want to do more. Great job Joey!!
