Great Information

These guys are great, I’m making my transition over from claims to an independent agent and I’ve been listening to them non stop.

5-Stars

I think my agency hit a milestone this weekend and I credit this one to Mr. Scott Howell. I’ve worked hard to grow my agency and like many start-ups I struggle with time management. I have non-work obligations like every business owner / spouse / parent / human being. I try to consume podcasts that will help me build my agency while I’m doing other things. Most of the podcasts I listen to I first heard on the Insurance Guys. Cook dinner listening to Mike Stromsoe. Helping fold laundry featuring Dr. Billy Williams. Washing the car with David Carothers and Kyle Houck.

I’m not a lawn guy. I don’t give two craps whether my lawn is weeds or grass as long as it’s green. But, someone has to cut it and I’ve listened to a lot of older episodes of the Insurance Guys while doing it. And in many episodes while sweating my body weight in water under the Florida sun while pushing my lawn mower through weeds and dog crap, Scott Howell tells me time and time again to not cut my own lawn. I’m a penny pinching son of a gun though and hate to pay someone for something I can do myself.

Well… this week I took Scott’s advice and hired a company to do it. While someone else was doing it I worked on setting up myself for this week which I never get time to do unless I wake up before the crack of dawn.

Thank you Scott for being a voice of reason in my life, introducing me to the things that have helped me grow my business, and reminding me to delegate some things so I can focus on bigger things. I have to let go of some things if I grow and scale and this was a good first step.

Folks, hire someone to mow your lawn and if you have to do it yourself, make sure you listen to the Insurance Guys Podcast while you do it because you’ll learn a lot.

Wealth of knowledge

What can I say? The information and enthusiasm these guys put out is top notch. They’re the big reason I finally went independent after 15 years captive. They got me setup with the aggregator I chose, and have taught me so much about the independent model. Love em to death!
