Owner | CEO
Hello, and thanks for stopping by to check us out!
My name is Ashley and I hope I get to know you soon. Candidly, if I were you, and even remotely considering if I was a fit for the Tarr Agency, I would value WHO I was going into business with more than WHAT kind of business it was. So, I want to share a little bit about myself, my mindset, and why in the world I’m in the insurance business.
Let’s cover the basics first. I love my family and friends. I love travel and adventure. I love sports. I love growth (even though it’s usually painful!). I love challenge. I love competing and teamwork. I love hard work. I love excellence. I love laughing. I love serving. I love radical generosity. I love living life. I love people. Maybe most importantly, I love making an impact. (Okay, relax…this isn’t a dating profile.)
I’m incredibly grateful for and passionate about this business because I literally get to craft my life around those things above. On top of that, I have the privilege of living it alongside the people on this team – people who are really more like family to me. And we get to make a difference in each other’s lives, our clients’ lives, and the world around us. Seriously…where else can you earn a significant income and enjoy time-freedom while you do that?!
In a culture speeding towards self-absorption, I believe the same thing driving it there has the power to reverse that trend. It’s people. You and me. It’s just when you’re broke on time or money (or both) it’s seriously tough to be focused on others. I know because I’ve been there and it feels more like survival of the fittest.
I think a life wasted is the worst life of all. And these days, a primary way we waste our lives is incessant self-focus. And yeah, if your story looks like mine did, you’re probably thinking “All this sounds great but I HAVE to focus on me cause I’m all out of options”. I get it. And I said the same thing when I launched my career here 8 years ago. The great thing is, this is a business where you win by taking care of other people; and the more people you serve the more you receive – in money, time, and significance.
In this business we get to serve others every day and our own lives are enriched in the process. We serve our clients by finding products that meet their needs and budgets. We serve our teammates by supporting, challenging, and celebrating them. We serve the world around us by giving back in big and small ways. We work hard and we get paid well, but it’s not just in dollars.
No, this business is not the answer to a meaningful life. No business is. But it IS a vehicle that allows people like you to jump on board and design a life of freedom and significance. That’s what it’s meant to me and what I’ve watched it do for hundreds of people I’m privileged to call my friends.
The capacity for greatness lives in each one of us. I believe that with all my heart. Some people need help finding it. Some need help drawing it inside-out. Some need all the time constraints or financial burdens lifted so they can actually spend their days doing what they were made for. And some just need a new field to play on.
I don’t know your story yet, but I’d love to. And if The Tarr Agency is a place you decide to call home, I look forward to knowing you and seeing you thrive – writing your own real story, experiencing real freedom, and making a real impact.
