However, while we wait for the contractors to finish renovations on the new office space, I have to pack my team into a short term office space a few miles north of our original location
I’m really proud of my short term success with my small business. I am an insurance agent and have three employees who work for me. We handle car, boat, home, life, business, and motorcycle insurance just to name a few. It’s amazing when I think about my progress in my job industry. I started as an office assistant at a large insurance company that had a location near my parent’s house while I was still in high school. While I was in college, I focused on mathematics, economics, and finances. Eventually I landed a job at another insurance company, but this time they were eager to train me as an insurance agent. Now it’s eight years later and I have my own business. I’m a licensed insurance agent and I have three employees who work directly under me, all of which are now agents themselves. During this time, we’ve been working in a cramped office space in an ancient building downtown. I decided to buy my own space and renovate it after the property manager here refused to replace the failing HVAC system. However, while we wait for the contractors to finish renovations on the new office space, I have to pack my team into a short term office space a few miles north of our original location. As stressful as this situation is for us all, at least our interim office space has good air conditioning and heat. It’s December and we were freezing at the old building with indoor temperatures getting as low as 45 degrees. It’s unbelievable that a property manager could expect their tenants to put up with that kind of situation.
