Some things you just can't outsource

Some things you just can’t outsource

I can’t have someone else write this post.

Trust me, some weeks I wish I could! But, I’m the host of the show. The founder of the company. My voice. The Forge3 vibe. The 5,000+ people who read these articles have come to expect me to show up in their inbox.

The same is true for your business. Only you (or someone else on the INSIDE) can truly communicate your vibe to the outside world!

I think about the conversation I had with an agency owner last week. He was asking if we could write all of his blog posts, emails and social posts.

Nope. Sorry. We’d love to, but we can’t.

I know it’s tempting to outsource everything. It’s hard to find the time. It’s too confusing to know how to do it. Whatever the reason.

But it’s YOUR job to tell YOUR story! Read More

Two ways insurance agencies can attract millennial employees

Two ways insurance agencies can attract millennial employees

By | Ashley's Angle, In the Office, Inspiration, Insurance, Off the Cuff, Quick Tips

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
