But did you know that we didn’t always focus exclusively on the insurance industry? Read More
If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘The Internship’ you’d probably agree with me that Google looks like the coolest place on earth to work. Nap pods. Slides instead of stairs. In house café and dry cleaning. Team building games and challenges.
While nap pods in an insurance agency are not realistic and slides instead of stairs probably have you screaming “LIABILITY HAZARD!” there’s something to take away from this: they’re doing something right with creating a positive culture.
I can’t tell you how many articles I’ve seen about how to attract millennials. But the truth is, the changes being made in the workplace are attractive to anyone in the workforce—avocado-toast-obsessed millennials or not! So while this article may be focused on the secret to snagging a millennial’s attention, it can really be applied to attracting talent across the board.
So, without further ado, what’s it going to take to fill the gap in the insurance workforce? Read More
Well, here comes Hurricane Florence.
I don’t care if it’s a hurricane, earthquake, flood, fender bender or something else.
When bad stuff happens, it’s time for your agency to shine.

I test drove a Tesla Model X last week.
My dad wanted to try it. And, since I was visiting him and my mom in Florida, I went along for the ride.
A 2.9 seconds, zero to 60 MPH kind of ride!
If you haven’t felt speed like that, add it to your bucket list. Seriously. It’s Ludicrous!
Here’s my dad behind the wheel. Notice anything strange? Read More
Here’s a fun fact:

I was looking through my photos and came across one that I thought was interesting.
We’ve attended a lot of conferences lately, but one of the more interesting things I’ve seen was a sticker chart at a Safeco booth. The idea was simple. Put a 1, 2 or 3 sticker on the board showing how the agency generates new business.

A few months ago, my co-worker Emily shared an inside look into her life as a location-independent Forge3’er. Now it’s my turn!
When I first started working at Forge3, I didn’t know if I would thrive in a location-independent environment. I was afraid it would make me anti-social or disconnected from my team.
After working at Forge3 for a few months, I quickly learned that this was not the case. In fact, it was pretty much the opposite!
Each Forge3 team member works a little bit differently, but with a combination of diligence, commitment and passion, we’re all able to make a remote work culture possible for Forge3.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how I do it… Read More
Hello from Rehoboth Beach, DE!
No, I’m not on vacation. That will happen in a few weeks. Turks & Caicos, here we come!
Let me preface this with: Forge3 had nothing to do with me wanting to write this article. I’m known to write about things I feel passionate about. It just so happens that this month, I’m feeling passionate about Forge3.
So, I’m going to give you a behind-the-scenes, exclusive look at what it takes for an insurance agency to get up and running on the ActiveAgency website platform. It’s a lot simpler than you might think! Read More
