About a year ago from the state, I got a couple of different licenses to sell life and health insurance and also property and casualty insurance (home and auto). In addition I got a very special license called a "independent adjusters" license.
The way that an independent adjuster works is whenever you own a home, you typically have homeowners insurance on it. If you ever follow claim whether it be for hail, wind, fire, or hurricane, there is usually somebody who comes out and assesses the damage. I am "that guy".
At first, I thought this job would be total ****, but I grew to like it a whole lot – I think it's really fun and it is super Baller.
Basically, I spend most my times scouting out damage on roofs, walking around houses and taking pictures of damage, and doing a lot of paperwork. I'm surprised that I even made up more than one month because of how anti-job I am, but I found out that it's really fun and it's going to be something they'll do for the short term.
I work for one of those big insurance companies. If you type in to Google "top three biggest insurance companies in the world" I work for one of those.
I think in the past 45 days, I've made somewhere between 30,000 – $60,000. The billing system is a little confusing, but I know at least I made minimum $30,000 last month. So the pay is really good, but it is still a "time for money trade".
There are some very adventures things coming up in my life that I'll be chatting about soon.
I seem to be out of my rut of being extremely an active, lazy, and not really wanting to approach life 100%. Most days, it seems that my head is spinning, but this is a good spinning – more like a "flow". Sometimes I do feel overwhelmed, but usually that's because I'm magnifying something out of proportion or I'm not really handling my **** the way that it should be handled. Nevertheless, the Sedona method has really helped me live life more openly and get certain things done in my life that I've been procrastinating on for years and years.
Maryland is fun, or at least it sounds pretty fun so far – I'm back in Atlanta for a couple of more hours (probably about 24) and then I'm heading to Maryland to start this new position. If I recall correctly, this is a little bit different than the job I was doing before, and it only earns about $500 a day. That totals out to about 15,000/month which is pretty good for a college dropout :-)
I think that going in knowing that I'm not going to do it for ever and especially that I'm not trying to stay there for 45 years and get a full retirement plan helps me be a little bit more in the moment. I'm still going to give 100% of my effort to this job and really just be open to whatever is there.
Yes. I love my new speech dictation microphone.
