Key Quotes:

“Ultimately, it’s about adding value. I don’t want to miss out on an opportunity because I wasn’t prepared and I think that just comes from a lot of mistakes. I would say hard work more than luck just because I guess I’ve been lucky to be surrounded by mentors.” – Ben Zimmer

“I continue to develop relationships because of insurance, people have to have it and it’s so fun. All I gotta do is go be a good person and give back to my community.” – Ben Zimmer

“Every opportunity and every day someone else adds energy to you. Hustle to me is energy and time well spent.” – Ben Zimmer
