    #104 - Empower & Excel - Get Your Dreams Into Action with Mary Bundy

    In today's inspiring episode of Ladies Kickin' Ass, we had the pleasure of speaking with the remarkable Mary Bundy, an insurance agent specializing in Medicare, who has built a successful business against all odds. Mary, who is also my aunt, shared her incredible journey, highlighting the importance of perseverance, learning from failure, and the power of taking action.

    Mary's story began with a personal connection to the struggles many face with medical bills, as her own parents were saved from financial ruin by a good Medicare agent. This experience sparked her desire to help others in similar situations. Despite starting with no money and as a single mom, Mary's determination led her to become a top producer in her field.

    Throughout the episode, we discussed several key takeaways:


    The Power of Asking for Help: Mary emphasized the importance of reaching out and asking for guidance when you're starting something new. Her own success story began with a simple phone call to a Medicare agent who eventually became her mentor.

    Learning from Failure: We talked about the importance of viewing failure as a learning opportunity rather than a setback. Mary's approach to business and life is to constantly ask, "What can I do now?" and to learn from every experience.


    Building Relationships: Mary's success is also attributed to her focus on building strong relationships with her clients and community. She believes in treating every client with respect and fighting for their best interests.


    Empowering Others: As her business grew, Mary ventured into agent development, teaching other women to succeed in the industry and serve clients with the same dedication she has.


    Setting Boundaries: We touched on the importance of setting boundaries with clients and not tolerating disrespect, a lesson that Mary learned and now imparts to her agents.


    The Right Time to Start: Mary's journey is a reminder that there's never a "right time" to start a business. The key is to take action, learn as you go, and be willing to adapt.



    Mary's story is a powerful example of what it means to kick ass in life and business. Her insights are invaluable for anyone looking to start their own venture or overcome challenges in their personal and professional lives.
