Key Quotes:

  • “I feel like the transition from bartending in the service industry to insurance has been a great thing for me. I had no idea I’d be good at sales.” – Jourdan Kitchens
  • “Insurance is not a tangible thing. It’s not a drink, it’s not a piece of paper. I can’t just give you a drink and make you happy. Insurance is something that holds really no value to most people until they have to use it.” – Jourdan Kitchens
  • “With Coronavirus, we’ve seen everyone’s working at home. They’re working whenever they want to. You’ve got to fit into their day. You can’t just fit into that nine to five. Life doesn’t end at five o’clock and it doesn’t start at nine. We’ve got to adapt to when people are actually paying attention.” – Jourdan Kitchens
