Why State Farm
(Speaker: Thang Vo)

Before I was a State Farm agent, I was a counselor working for a nonprofit for at risk youth. The main thing is just being there for them. And that's just very rewarding. I've been there for about eight years. And I want to do something similar to that. And I thought State Farm would be the best choice for that.

(Speaker: Thang Vo)

I found that State Farm has one of the best support systems out there. I didn't know how to start my business, and how to hire a great team, how to market myself. And at State Farm, their support system helped me just to face those challenges.

So you get the chance to wear different hats every day. You could be a teacher one day, or a manager one day.

Meeting with a State Farm customer every day, for me, it's more than at business level. Because I get the chance to get to know them as a person, as well as them getting the chance to know me as a person. When there's a claim, we want to be there for them, guide them, help them step by step, and make sure that they're OK if they need any help at all, and to contact us at any time.

(Speaker: Thang Vo)

It's very rewarding and is the best job out there because not only are you working for yourself, but also you're representing the best company out there. That what's motivating me to become a State Farm agent and keep on going every single day.
