Tell us a little about your business.
Farm Bureau Financial Services is an insurance and investment company that builds relationships with people from all walks of life to help them protect what matters most and prepare for the future. Our team has the ability to help our clients with all of their insurance and financial needs. My role is to drive business for the agency and cultivate relationships with new clients.
How did you get started in the business?
I began my career with Farm Bureau right out of college. I had previously worked as an intern at a small insurance company in Lincoln where I learned much about the insurance industry. With recently ringing in the New Year, I am just coming up on two years of experience.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
The amount of competition in the insurance and investments industry. With that being said, if you are not one of the hardest workers out there then you’re going to get left behind the pack.
Tell us a little about your family.
I was born and raised in Springfield, NE which is a town of about 1,700 people. Our house was a couple miles outside of town so it was always pretty quiet growing up. We lived 100 yards away from my grandparent’s farm and I worked with my grandpa for most all of my childhood helping around the farm. Although I was the closest grandchild to the farm, my other cousins lived in town about 5 minutes away. Growing up, and still to this day about every other weekend, the driveway is full of cars for a birthday or a family event.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
It was from my college football coach and came from the principles we had on the defensive side of the ball called the bottom line. Although there are five different parts, it all comes down to not making excuses. That is how I have worked since the day I first heard it, and how I will always operate my business.
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be?
If you had a theme song, what would it be?
Real American by Rick Derringer (Hulk Hogan’s theme song).
What is your favorite book or the last good book you read?
My all-time favorite is Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell. The book does a great job of digging into how Navy Seals train and the way they mentally break barriers to push themselves further. As a fan of modern war genre books, I think it’s a great choice for anyone who enjoys a good read.
What is your favorite movie?
The Big Short.
What is your favorite TV show?
Game of Thrones.
What is your favorite local restaurant?
Having graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan and still living in the northeast part of Lincoln, I would say my favorite restaurant is Risky’s Sports Bar & Grill. Great place to hang out and watch some football with friends.
If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be?
