Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Loomis.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Jessica. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started in the insurance industry when I was just 20 years old. I was just getting by; living paycheck to paycheck with no real direction. I didn’t have a degree at the time and I was moving to a different job every year. Liberty Mutual had just opened a large call center in the Phoenix Metro Area. One of my friends had just accepted a position there. I applied, interviewed and took the position. It was the best decision I ever made. This position was an education in itself. It taught me the value of knowing your product, educating your client and working with a team of individuals that encourage you to reach your goals. It was here that I realized I needed to further my education if I was going to succeed. I went back to school to pursue my degree while working full time at Liberty Mutual. As soon as I graduated from College with my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management Liberty Mutual promoted me to their business insurance division. This was the stepping stone to my carrier in the insurance industry. Along the way I became a single mom to a beautiful little girl that is a huge light in my life. It has always been a struggle to find the balance between Corporate America and being a single parent. Somehow she and I have made it work. Moving forward about 15 years; I have worked with some of the largest insurance brokers in the United States and the world but something was missing. I wanted to be able to do more for my clients, add value without having to spend a lot more money to do it, focus and contribute to the communities I work in. That was not happening. I also wanted to work with a team that cared as much as I did about my clients and their success. I didn’t see it. Not to mention; having the flexibility to spend more time with my daughter. In 2014 I started Infinity Insurance Partners; we support our clients and the communities we work as well as live in. We care about our employees, our clients and the community. This is why we have been successful at what we do.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I am laughing right now. On the inside. It is never easy and the road is definitely not smooth. I started this company with my savings. I had no employees and no clients. Just an office and a computer. I have lost and found really good employees and really bad employees along the way. At the beginning I used to lie awake at night wondering how I was going to make my rent payment or pay payroll. The first two years in business; no banks wills lend you money and I had no one that I really could borrow money from. Somehow I was able to make it work and we got by. Every year we have hired more employees and worked with what was given to us. It is not easy but working for Corporate America brings its own stress and uncertainty.
