Dedicate your time. Donate when possible. Give 110% to your customers and your community at all times. Oh, and don’t forget to be a dedicated parent of three while running a successful woman-owned business while you’re at it.

That’s what my incredible client, Owner/Agent Nancy Leavitt of American Family Insurance, does every day, year in and year out.

In her hometown newspaper, The Lynden Tribune, she was celebrated as a Standout Citizen. And she so deserves it. As a woman, she is a minority in the insurance business. But that isn’t on her radar. She chose this business because of her drive and aptitude to protect and advise her clients over the past 15 years.
