Nature of Business:
Mims Financial Group has 2 objectives. The first objective is to help businesses with 50 or less employees with a life insurance benefit without adding a business cost. We believe that every working individual should be able to have access to Life insurance regardless of health condition. That’s why we have a 1 question underwriting product that is affordable to anyone that is working. We also offer other financial products that will allow one to save today and be able to live tomorrow. The second objective is to create a profitable and supportive atmosphere for career agents. Within this atmosphere we promote that agents maybe in business for themselves, but they are not in business by themselves. Our goal is to help agents reach their financial goals today and in the future.
What Carlos has been up to since his participation in 100 Days to Abundance/Team Nimbus:
After participating in the 100 day to abundance I was enlighten in these three areas and was given the resources to improve my business.
- What a Real Business is -I did not own a business but I own a job with business like benefits. I was trying to run my business like Corporate America and I was losing the battle. I was enlightened that small businesses have a separate set of rule than big businesses. I immediately reconstruct my organization to utilize the concept, speed of execution.
- Hedgehog – What was I doing nothing that would separate me for the other insurance agencies in the area? Nothing, so I needed to develop a hedgehog that would make me become an expert in my industry. My Hedgehog “Creating Financial Legacies by helping individuals with Debt Elimination, Insuring Your Assets, and Legacy Planning”. This is not only for our clients but agents as well.
- Creating a Process – I now understand that in order for me to have a business it must be able to function with or without me. I needed to create processes that would emphasize my hedgehog, be duplicatable, and can sustain growth. I needed to be a manager of a process/system and not of people. People may change and you can’t control that, but you can control a process and its results.
There is an old song that states “I can see clearly now that the rain is gone…I can see all obstacles in my way”. I may be able to see all the obstacles, but being a part of the Team Nimbus Family I can handle them. I am not alone, that is exciting to me.
Carlos’s best advice to other small business owners:
If you are not getting the results that you want or expect, be willing to try something different. It was told to me that small business owner have a problem asking for help. Its true and I was one of them, but I am learning how to open my mouth and ask. I asked Team Nimbus to help me build my business and they said with pleasure. Team Nimbus has taken me from being an producing agent with EMC National Life to EMC Marketing Manager for the State of NC within a year. Now is not the time to be silent, ASK…….
