Blake came from a successful 3 year start in flooring sales to Family Heritage in the Fall of 2015. He was tired of being capped out on what he was able to make while not being able to control his schedule. With being called into ministry, Blake knew that he wanted to do something that not only helped people, but also give him the freedom to minister at GC Church and enjoy time with his wife Jaclyn and two boys Christian & Caden. Although leaving a 6 figure income with a new house and family was a tough decision, Blake knew that he was being hired into something special.
“I came here for the financial opportunity, but the people has been what has kept me” – Blake. The Compass Group has provided him with not only partners in business but also friends in life. “The training is second to none. Instead of just dreaming that I will be financially able to do whatever I want in life; here I can actually map it out and tangibly know what I need to do to achieve those dreams”. Blake finished #1 in Family Heritage sales for all agents in their first year in 2016, and set the company record for 2016 of most sales in a week. He credits God and the entire Compass Group for the continual leadership and training that is always available.
After being with the company a little over a year, Blake has started building a team and is quickly moving up the leadership track. “This business can be whatever you want it to be. If you want to be a great salesperson, you can do it. If you want to be a team leader, you can do it. If you want to build your own agency, you can do it. The best part, you can make a lot of money doing any of them. I work with The Compass Group so that I can help families financially when the unexpected hits, spend a lot of time with my family while being at every event my boys have, and use that extra time to spend in ministry”
