Financial Security?


Well Brandon got a JOB! HORRAY! It isn't exactly the job he wanted. He is working for a company called Country Financial. They are a financial advising company but their main focus is insurance. Insurance is important and everybody needs it. Car insurance, house insurance, life insurance, health insurance. . . it seems like everything has insurance. You can get insurance on your mail when you send packages, insurance on your travel plans, you name it they have insurance for it. The problem is, insurance is not the most fun to sell. You have to go through all this training and certifications (which they don't pay for until you are done) and then he has to find people to buy it from him. It is definately a sales position and I guess it is a good thing that Brandon is a good salesman (going on a mission really helped him). The downside is all the training takes like 2 months so that is 2 months of no paychecks. Good thing we have a lot of savings. It is amazing how saving money and paying tithing can help a little money go a long way. The good news is: Brandon got a job!

Congrats to Brandon, Jessica. I will hope he completes it fast and gets to making money again fast! Sorry this stress came on the heels of announcing a new pregnancy. Must have been very hard on you and Brandon. Glad the light is at the end of the tunnel...
