Protecting the Life You Love
Curiosity and freedom. These are the two strongest ingredients in creating and protecting the life you love. Curious about how he ended up with terrible policies from his insurance agent after leaving a corporate job, Kyle Vowell, owner of Kyle Vowell Insurance agency, saw the need for respectable agents and paired that with his extensive customer service and genuine love of helping others, and a heart of an entrepreneur, and decided to open his own insurance office in Redding, CA. "I was solving one problem: Not enough good, respectable agents, willing to educate their clients."
Kyle knew he could solve that problem and help his clients have the right coverage in place to protect all that they have built and are in the process of building in their lives, while creating a life he loves for him and his beautiful bride. He also knew creating this life would allow him to give back more to the people and causes he is passionate about.
It is this deep clarity that has kept him going when he was first starting out and creating the name and incredible reputation of his business; knowing that he can design a life of freedom that revolves around the things he loves: helping others, being outdoors, and spending time with his wife, friends, and family.
He may have the heart of an entrepreneur, but his soul is that of a teacher. He spends his time reviewing his clients' past, present, and their goals for the future to not throw them into a plan, but educate them into policies that best fit their needs and that have the biggest benefits for them. "Many people don't realize what they have whether its material possessions like a house that they could lose without the right protection or the rest of their families well being if something happened to them without the proper protection."
Kyle's number one tip for working and searching for your insurance agent is, "Spend time with your agent reviewing what your coverages are--ask questions. You wouldn't give your money over to someone to invest without understanding the strategy, but most people let their agents renew their policies year in and year out, never make a change, never ask what has changed. The only time a change is made is to save money. People think of insurance as a commodity. It kind of is when you look at it as a commodity, but if you can't rebuild your house, after a disaster because you didn't review your policy the last 10 years, it's not a commodity any more. If your family has to sell your house or be foreclosed on because you passed away and failed to have a life insurance policy, it's not a commodity anymore. So I would have to say that my best tip is to educate yourself on insurance or get a good agent who will."
Outside of work, Kyle loves to travel with his wife. "We are both from small towns in Mississippi and don't have any family here except each other. We do have great friends that have made us feel like family!. My wife and I had never seen country like we have here in Northern California and Southern Oregon. We are just starting life together, as we were married this past November."
Though he is easy going and has a caring nature which is evident when you are working with him, Kyle demands his employees to have a strong work ethic, high morals, professionalism, be self motivated, and add to the team environment while maintaining the drama free atmosphere in the office. "I work hard to make sure my employees want to work for me. I love people and I want people to be happy, including my employees It's not always the best combination when you're a boss. For self-motivated people, I am a great leader. I can help people thrive that want to thrive.
Megan has the best work ethic of any employee I’ve ever had-and I’ve had over 100’s of people that I have managed. I do my best not to take advantage of that. Megan is honest, caring and treats our clients with the utmost respect. Megan has a knack for picking things up quickly and will take on anything I throw her way. Our customers rave about her customer service. Often times I’ll catch Megan listening to long stories from clients, very attentively, like she has nothing else to do. That’s when you know someone cares. Because as soon as the client leaves she is 15 minutes behind on everything, but she always makes it up somehow.
Jacob is a bright, young, charismatic, guy, with lots of love for learning new things. He is going to be a great asset to our team. Jacob also has a knack for marketing and I see him taking our exposure to the next level."
Kyle and everyone at Kyle Vowell Insurance Agency cares about their clients. Truly. This is what sets him apart from his competition. He puts his clients first, not his commission. "One of the reasons I got into this business is because there was a lack of caring in the insurance industry. To name another, it would be educating my clients. I like to inform them as much as possible about what their coverages should be and why. Most of them really appreciate that. Many clients will even say I’ve never had an agent go over my coverages with me."
Being curious about your coverages and asking questions is the best way to be educated on the policies you have and to find out the ones you should have. Kyle has created a life and business around helping those that are curious about their needs, finding the right protections for their lives, giving his clients the freedom and piece of mind so they're protected in case of the worst and set up to continue to grow a strong legacy.
