Episode 026b – The independent journey (month 3 check-in)

Check in # 2 (with Andrew Calloway)

It’s been a month since we had did our “Independent Journey” episode with Andrew Calloway.  He was one month into the transition from captive to independent when I interviewed him.  My plan has been to check in with him every month for 1 year.  This is the second check in.   

Welcome to Episode 26b

  I’m checking in with Andrew every month so those of you considering this transition can see what it actually looks like.  Andrew isn’t holding back.  We talk about the wins AND the struggles during his 2nd month.  It was great checking in with him and I’m excited to watch the rest of his journey.   My 2 biggest takeaways from this episode are:

  • When starting an Independent Agency, you have to be prepared for the unknown.
  • Starting an insurance agency is just like any other small business start up with it’s ups and downs wins  and lessons.

“I’m at the beginning of this journey, but I’m in control of my own destiny.  ” (Andrew Calloway – Agency Owner)
