Key Quotes:

  • “If you look at a lot of agency owners and why we became owners, it’s because we love to sell.” – Linda Marie Fisher
  • “This business is a relationship business. It’s not just this relationship with our team. It’s our team’s relationships with our clients, to our team’s relationships with the carriers, it’s our team’s relationships.” – Linda Marie Fisher
  • “You get to a time when you have to make a decision. Either I’m going to stop growing, and I can handle it all myself. Or I’ve got to hire people to help me with this. Yeah, well, if you’re going to hire people to help you with this, you better figure out how to be a leader.” – Linda Marie Fisher
