A career as an insurance salesman was never on Bryan's bucket list of things to do before he died. However, upon hitting his 10-year anniversary as an in-flight recruiter/trainer for a major airline, the long hours of traveling, the less-than-stellar pay, and the fact that he wasn’t doing something that made an impact in the world really made him stop and rethink his life path. That self-assessment inspired him to quit his job to go searching for his life’s purpose with not a clue of what he was searching for other than a way that he could help people.
A month and a half into “joblessness” and growing weary of searching, Bryan happened to see an advertisement for a job fair in Salt Lake City, where he stumbled upon Kia Alkema and Family Heritage. When he found out what Family Heritage did, he said, "Great!" and started to walk away. Kia stopped him in his tracks with a few questions about what he wanted to get out of his next career, and when he responded, she told him that Family Heritage could offer him all of the things he was searching for. He figured he had nothing to lose and why not at least check it out, and two weeks later, Bryan was out knocking on doors selling insurance.
Bryan believes that things DO HAPPEN for a reason and he feels so fortunate that Family Heritage came into his life. He loves the ability to work from home, to set his own hours, and to earn a great living; but the fact that he gets to protect families and their hard-earned money is what he loves the most. He goes to work each day with a purpose knowing that somebody he meets that day will need what Family Heritage has to offer and it's his job to find them.
Bryan says, "I wish nobody had to use their policy, but that’s unrealistic; all of my clients who've had to use theirs said they were so glad they got it because they don’t know what they would've done without it. We do a pretty awesome thing here and that's another reason I love working for Family Heritage. And I couldn’t have asked for a better group of agents to work with; we have an awesome team!"
Fun Fact: Twenty years ago, Bryan was a professional cheerleader for both the NBA & NFL. He claims that the thought of doing a standing back flip or holding a girl up on one hand seems impossible now (but we bet he still can!).
