The year was closing out…but I had one more opportunity to present my speech to MY insurance company.
But let me back up to when I met JR, my rep. I met JR about 6 years ago.
He called me on the phone…4 years later…a cool-warm call at best. He said he wanted to meet with me to discuss our Auto Insurance. I had this company since 2001 and I didn’t like the service I was getting, so I agreed to meet.
He showed me what he had and he made a convincing case to switch…so I did. Since switching, I had to call JR one time for my daughters car. As soon as I called him, he picked up on the third ring and answered my question! This was the service that I had been waiting for!!! JR, you are the man.
Anyway, I made a luke warm call to HIM, and said I was looking to speak at one of their COMPANY events and do you think you can help. (OK, I think BIG.) A few weeks passed and I got a call from Christi and she wanted me to speak at her upcoming sales meeting. And Christi told me she lived on the same BLOCK as me (about 12 houses down)! I gladly accepted, but now I had to practice my speech again.
I thought “how hard came that be? I gave this speech over 500 times.” Well, it was hard. The first time thru the speech, I was terrible!!! Luckily, I had a few weeks to practice and I THINK I did ok.
I have to ask my wife Jill….to give me the truth…no holding back. In the past, these were tough to hear, but I think this time, I gotten better. I will ask her one the post is done…so she can’t change it!
