Never Got Emails Like This In My Insurance Days

I often tweet about how many emails I receive on a daily basis. Many times, I'm told that I should delegate my email to someone else, to my assistant for instance. However, I could not imagine doing this. Communicating directly with my community and my clients is one of the things that makes me tick. It's a part of who I am.

It's actually all the email interactions that I had on a daily basis that made me want to leave my career in insurance to pursue podcasting full-time. But you might ask, what is it about these emails that is so darn important? The answer is simple! It's the RELATIONSHIPS!

Now, in my 11 years as a property, casualty, life, and health insurance agent, I think I received one “thank you card” from a client who had thanked me for going above and beyond the call of duty, though I did so on a daily basis for those 11 years.

However, in my efforts as a podcaster, I get post cards, greeting cards, hand written letters, and emails on a consistant basis from people who remind me just how important the work that we do with is in the lives of others around the world.

I've been given permission to share the following email that just came in two days ago…

Episode 485 of Pursuing A Balanced Life was titled “The Year of Providence Begins!” This email above is a reminder that God is always looking out for us! After I publish this post, I plan to tell Stephanie that we are going out on a special date, just the two of us!

The Year of God's Providence Continues…. Our lives are so richly blessed by the community! Thank you all so much!
