Currently the point of this blog is DUI Insurance NC and to help me work through my feelings of occasional burnout towards my occupation. If I am going to spend 1/3 of my day doing something, by golly I am going to capitalize on what I love about it—and drop the rest. Don’t get me wrong, I do not dislike it. I really don’t. In fact, there are some aspects of the job I really find enjoyable & the routine to be quite comforting.
However, when I get emails like this it REALLY helps me think beyond the Groundhog Day aspects of my work, and consider the parts that I look forward to each day:
“Brown-Phillips Insurance and Ashlee saved my car and my credit.
A little policeman in a little town in the mountains of NC wore out his ink pen giving me tickets for driving while Latino. I fought it the best I could, but I never had a chance.
My insurance with the G company that has the little green lizard in their commercials went from $600.00 a year to $4000.00 a year. I couldn't sell my car, I couldn't keep it without insurance, and I couldn't pay the insurance. I was so desperate that I went to the bank to ask them how to turn it in.
Then I found Ashlee at Brown-Phillips. She got me all the answers I needed almost immediately. She gave me coverage with a national company for about a third of what the G company demanded. When the G company wanted almost $200.00 to cancel my coverage, Ashlee helped me stop them from doing that as well.
I came to Ashlee in desperation. She saved my car and my credit. I will stay because of terrific service and amazing prices.
Thanks Ashlee and thanks to Brown-Phillips for helping me in an impossible situation.”
And not to ‘toot my own horn’, I get a fair amount of them. I mean, someone has to really love you, or really hate you, to bother posting a review or testimonial on the good ol’ interweb. Fortunately I get a whole lot more of the former. If you are interested, you can find more of this lovefest right here:
Hey, with comments like that all the time, it’s easy to see how THE DIVA was born!
(I like to call this photo “market research”…)
How, you ask, did I become the DUI Insurance NC Diva? Well. I do not condone or advocate drinking & driving. In fact, I think it is a really bad idea…Dangerous, expensive, humiliating—yeah, definitely not an advocate. But it happens. Have I driven after having a few drinks before? Yes. In the interest of keeping it real, I must admit: Shamefully, I have. Stuff happens in life, and I’m not throwing any stones of judgment from my glass house. I have talked with enough people that have been convicted to know how much they regret the whole mess of it, and it basically sucks to learn lessons the hard way.
I guess as an agency we started a focus on DUI Insurance NC clients when we realized, 1. We have an unbelievably awesome program in our state, 2. There is a huge market out there. So for me, the best part about my job is helping the people out who find themselves in this situation. Most of them are demoralized & embarrassed. I am glad that I can help people feel better. Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone.
Is my long term goal to be your insurance agent forever? Probably not. Sure, that would be great…but in my opinion, the days of sticking with one company for 30 years went out with the phone book. It’s not that world any more. Too much competition. Too many crazy mood swings (translated into rate swings) by insurance carriers. I haven’t had the same insurance company for the past xx number of years. Why would I expect anyone else to be different? But for the 3-5 years this DUI Insurance NC is part of your life, I’m your diva. And I am happy with that. And if you want to be my customer for 30 years, then I am happy with that too! We have a market for any type of client. DUI Insurance NC just happens to be my favorite.
So, I love writing policies for clients with DWI convictions. There…I said it. I enjoy hearing the stories, and being a listening ear to so many frustrated people. I love the relief in their voices & I even love convincing them that yes, this quote is accurate. Bottom line, the thing that keeps me coming back to this position is I enjoy relating to people. I’m weird like that.
Would you like to share your story here? Judgment free zone. I have heard them all after years of experience, so nothing can surprise me…
