    Pulling Back the Bow feat. Thuan Bui

    Pulling Back the Bow feat. Thuan Bui

    Today's guest is a swerve from last week: our host spoke to a young agent on the rise, Regional Marketing Director Thuan Bui. We had a great talk about how important good leaders and mentors are to an entrepreneur's success — not least because they in turn teach you how to lead and mentor your future teams.

    Listen to Thuan's energetic story and hear his great "bow and arrow" metaphor for overcoming setbacks in this insightful episode.

    Passion for the Product feat. Tou Vang

    Today's guest is a very experienced business builder, National Marketing Director Tou Vang, who has been an entrepreneur since shortly after he came to America from Laos in 1980. When he finished up his schooling, he started gaining experience opening businesses, everything from a grocery store to a used car dealership. For the last 13 years, Tou has been helping people secure their futures and protect their families with life insurance and other financial solutions, and he's as passionate about the product as he is about helping people.

    How to Be Reliable feat. Dah Htoo

    How to Be Reliable feat. Dah Htoo

    For today's episode, we had the honor of speaking to Dah Htoo, a Field Vice President who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Myanmar (or Burma, as it was known until 1989) 15 years ago and started dedicating his life to helping refugees adjust to American life.
    After working his way through various jobs, he landed as a caseworker for Lutheran Family Services, aiding families who were new to the country. Since then, Dah has transitioned to the world of financial services and dedicated his life to helping others understand how to protect their finances and find peace of mind. Dah talked to our host about how to be there for people who rely on you and what it takes to help families adjust to a new country in this insightful episode of Lead. Empower. Grow.

    No Reason to Fear feat. Cindy Rivera

    No Reason to Fear feat. Cindy Rivera

    In this captivating episode of Lead. Empower. Grow., we sit down with Cindy Rivera, who shares her insights on perseverance, the importance of financial preparedness and how she navigated personal and professional challenges to achieve success. Her story is a profound reminder of the power of courage and the impact one can have when you dedicate yourself to helping people without fear. Join us for an episode filled with inspiration, lessons learned and the drive to empower others on their paths to success.

    **After our talk, Cindy realized she had left out part of her daughter's story that she wished to share. We were not able to redo the interview to fit it in the final episode, so she shared some words on what she wanted to add:

    "Because we were not aware that living benefits existed until after my daughter was already diagnosed, we never had that protection for her. We never had a chance to use it because we didn't know about it, but we never want other people, especially our friends and families, to miss it when they need it. So that is the reason I also fell in love with the product."
