Business: Brightway Insurance, The Young Agency/Young Tumbleweed, LLC
Job title: Owner/Managing Partner
Why are you working in this industry? I wanted to give back to my community and become a cornerstone to help those around us successfully navigate through the tough times they may face.
What are three daily habits that have helped you to become successful? Wake up and spend time with Jesus, make a priority list, and have a meaningful conversation outside of business with someone every day.
Who is the person who most influenced you in business? My father has had the most influence on me in business and he remains a close confidant and helpful consultant.
What is the best advice you have ever received? If you act enthusiastic, you’ll be enthusiastic. You choose your own attitude.
What was your first summer job? Mowed lawns to save up money to buy a drum set
Where will we find you enjoying your hard-earned time off? I love to spend time with the family, coach baseball, play outside with the kids, read and take care of our land.
