It feels great to be back in agency again! As of August 1st I returned to small business ownership in the form of my agency, The Patrick D. O’Brien Agency with American Family. When I first entered the business 9 years ago, it was a huge change and a bit scary. Prior to opening my first agency in 2004, I was a sales representative for a handful of companies over the course of 9 years. It was a great experience, I learned a lot and I really enjoyed working with and interacting with people.
Although I enjoyed what I was doing, I wanted to own my own business. Opening an Agency with American Family Insurance was a perfect fit. After three years as an Agent, I accepted the amazing opportunity to become an Agency Sales Manager in 2007. For 6 years I was a corporate business partner to a team of central Indiana American Family Agents and Staff. My role was to help them grow their Agency and be a liaison between them (small business owner) and American Family (home office).
When I first opened my Agency in 2004, I was a two-year newlywed and not yet a Father. Now, after 11 years of marriage and becoming a Father to two awesome kids, Kelly age 5 & Jack age 7, I’m thrilled to be back in Agency. I’ve always been active in my community and connected with people. Now, as an Agency Owner again, I feel I am in a position to make a difference in people’s lives by providing the right insurance advice to protect their dreams.
