Let’s meet our featured agent for September, Eric Hollenkamp, a real student of the business who continues to get better and better.
Tell us about your family.
I have been married to my wife Jamie for 12 years and we have 3 boys. The boys keep us busy with sports and activities pretty much year round but we do get a little bit of a break during the summer for us to travel as a family. We will soon be adding a new member to our family in about a week when our new puppy is ready to be separated from his mother and the boys are very excited as well as my wife and myself.
How did you decide on a Final Expense career?
I came to the business just short of two years ago after being laid off from my previous job of 15 years in the furniture industry in which I had many roles from warehousing to customer service. After trying another insurance agency I ended up hanging my hat with SIS after my wife was talking about what I do with a friend. Her friend suggested that I talk with SIS and I have been here since then and have learned a lot and still have a lot to learn but I am enjoying every minute of it.
What do you enjoy most about Final Expense?
One thing nice about working in final expense is amount of time I have away from work. What is nice is that I have been able to be available to help out with school functions for my boys and take them to and from practices.
What do you like to do in your time away from work?
Some of the things that I enjoy most are finding new places to eat, playing golf with my brothers and friends, watching sports, listening to bands and also I enjoy just about any crime drama that I can watch.
We can end this with your favorite movie quote from Joe Dirt,
Keep on keeping on.
