Key Quotes:

  • “I absolutely love what I do. Knowing that I’m able to help people move into a career that is going to be amazing for them. Because there’s just so many options available in the insurance industry and anyone can find a fit that works for them just like I did. I found a fit that works for me because I love to be an educator, and here I am teaching about insurance.” – Melissa Pierzina
  • “It’s just so cool that insurance can do that. That you can go from nothing to amazingness, and making the money that you want, however you want. You want to work for a company? Great. You want to work for yourself? Great. You want to work on the internet? Great.” – Melissa Pierzina
  • “I think if people understood that while there are some bad experiences, there are so many more good experiences. And, if you can do your homework about who is recruiting you and who you’re looking at working for, you can make the right decision. So, you just need to be cautious heading into it, but know that it’s such an amazing career, and once you find your groove, it’s going to be golden for you.” – Melissa Pierzina
