"You are much more successful when you let your customers do more talking and you do more listening."

Today's business visit was to Deron Powell - State Farm Agent in Mt. Pulaski. As an investor in LLCEO, Deron knows the challenges the students are facing at this point in the year. He had some good insights to help them achieve their next milestone - the group business.

When the topic shifted to Deron's business, he discussed the responsibility to help develop employees, learning from others in his industry, and things to consider when operating a business in a small town.

He also answered lots of questions about his path as a State Farm agent. The team asked about his biggest challenges and rewards. When describing how he is able to bring a check to a customer in crisis, he said, "The best part of my job is being able to help people on what is probably one of the worst days of their life. It's hard to watch them go through it, but rewarding to be able to help."

Thank you, Deron, for spending time with CEO this morning. And thank you for your continued support of the LLCEO program!

(And thanks for our photo op with Jake!)
