BIG News

ok......NO I am NOT pregnant!! But I got a good chuckle for a couple of hours while some of you thought I was! This news is right up there though........there are a handful of HUGE events in life such as getting married, having a baby and then choosing your career or landing your dream job. Well please bear with me as I try to properly explain this and while I try to express excitement all while writing a blog post...........

So this has been a hard secret to keep as Matt and I have known about this since October but the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted so I am allowed to tell you...........................

Matt got a HUGE promotion!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, so for the last 6 years my husband Matt has owned his own Farmers Agency alot of hard work and dedication has been put into this, I mean this is his child. Matt also was just getting into a good position where things were sailing along .....when WHAM!! He gets a call from his District manager asking him if he would be interested in becoming a District Manager! This is not something you decide over night this is a HUGE decision we discussed at length and this oppurtunity has many pros and some cons! Then Matt had to take tests, write essays, gather transcripts and get approved thru by the state all the way to the national office! This entire 3 month process that was full of stress came to an end last Tuesday!!He passed with flying colors might I add!!! SO what does this mean.............

-Farmers will essentially be "buying" Matt's agency from us and that sum will be very helpful to put away for when Matt starts his own District office as well as wiping out all our debt!

-Matt will for the next 12-18months become a Reserve District Manager which means he will be hands on in recruiting new agents, learning how to run his own district and training new agents!! This means he will be working LONG LONG hours and that will be adjustment but he will also be moving over to salary for this time instead of commission only and that was a pro on the decision checklist!

- So when his 12-18months is over Matt will be awarded his own Farmers District where he will be in charge/over all the agents in this area. Another good point on the checklist is the pay raise will jump again but the semi-bad is that we may be asked to relocate! And we will not know until this is all over. But whatever happens this is Matt's career and he is soo excited about this and I am here to support him!

This is pretty BIG news and this will be a change so 1 week from today Matt will start off in a new direction! And for all of you who have policies with Matt the way that will work is you will receive a letter in the mail mid-January explaining this and introducing you to your new agent. BUT, don't fret Matt will be over which ever agent you will be turned to and he will still be here to help!!

So yay for Matt and his hard work, dedication and charm!!! XOXOX
