What were you doing before Symmetry and what was your approximate income?
Sales Manager at a General Motors dealership. $110k a year.
What attracted you to Symmetry Financial Group?
Work life balance and that my efforts would be working towards my own dreams not someone else’s.
How has your life changed since joining Symmetry?
Several ways. My best month here so far was $27k in commission, so from an income standpoint, last year I made way more then I ever had in the car business. From a work life balance standpoint, I was able to move to beautiful Franklin, TN and work from home most days instead of living at the car dealership 12-15 hours a day. From a personal growth standpoint, Symmetry and its leadership have continued to help me grow and become a better leader every year. I knew how to be a good sales manager at the dealership but hear they have taught me how to be a good leader and a liberator of people.
What opportunities have you been able to do or provide because you started working with Symmetry Financial Group, that you likely would not have done or unable to in another career?
Just a whole different lifestyle altogether that I wouldn’t have been able to experience at the car dealership. From a time perspective, we’ve been able to go on several nice trips and are really looking forward to the Costa Rice trip this year. Really, everything has though. We can go to restaurants that we never would have been able to justify spending the money on before. And several other luxuries, including some fine cigars and bourbon that I never would have even taken a look at before.
What advice do you have for a new agent?
Sacrifice the now for the later. This is a very short term sacrifice for an opportunity that you will reap the rewards of for a lifetime. Don’t forget to enjoy the journey and be grateful for the stage you are currently in and what you have already accomplished. Learn to put your faith and emotions in the activity and not the results. When your faith and emotions are focused on the results, you will add a lot of unnecessary pressure and it is easy to become frustrated instead of grateful.
That’s our story.
