As a new Financial Adviser we were invited to attend the Grand Career Orientation for motivation and to see the people who are part and the core of Insular Life. Personally, I don’t need motivation or lessons but still we learn or in this case relearn something that we used to stand for and we know that is right.
Being a Financial Adviser is truly an inspiring job since you sell products that would really help others. Just like what they say in the orientation, life insurance is the best financial investment tools in the industry today. It secures the successors and/or your loved ones needs and lifestyles, an assurance that the ones you love won’t suffer that much in the long run in case you expire (yes, die. less harsh words doesn’t really help). I’m surprised that only 18.5% of Filipinos are insured (or maybe not because of poverty) but I believe everybody can buy this investment just as anybody can buy smart phones here.
I like the logo of Insular Life. I’m pretty choosy with these kind of things since these things are actually the things that you will use presenting the company, the face of the company. As you can see, the animal the is an eagle, the Philippine Eagle to be exact. In fact, Insular Life is a Filipino Company, the only insurance company that is mutualized (where a policy holder also holds a stock of the company). Well, I’m not here to endorse the company (even though I should) so I’ll cut the crap.
What struck me most on the program was the quotation by Albert Einstein.
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
Being an aspiring Physicist, an incoming Financial Adviser, an environmental advocate and a hopeless romantic, this quotation pretty sums up my life and aspirations.
Anyway, if you’re a Filipino and would want a financial+love adviser or even a job, don’t hesitate to contact me. Maybe I’ll post some orientations on being Financial Advisers that would really motivate you on doing such job.
