Rachel: I knew what I wanted

Well I started off in the agent’s office when I was 19 years old.

And I remember State Farm being surrounded by amazing people. I knew this is what I wanted to do.

When we first started out in the business, there were tough times. I’d never owned a business before. I’d never managed a team before. I’d never had sales goals before.

My faith got tested many, many, many times.

But being a State Farm agent allows me to be me. It allows me to bring my personality into this.

And it allows me to do the right thing every single day. And I’m there for my kids. I’m involved in the community.

You have the opportunity to operate a business based on your own terms.

But one of the most beautiful things is being surrounded by your clients, and learning about them and learning about what their dreams are and celebrating with them.

You know, I never need an alarm clock to wake me up in the morning.

This story is just one of many unique, personal perspectives on being a State Farm® agent.
