Well Happy 2024! I, Bruce E. L. M. Strothers, established this local small business to empower what matters most to the community I grew up in! Earlier career successes aside, I'm the only State Farm Agent Owner (I know of, at least) who NEVER set foot in ANY insurance agency, in any capacity, EVER, before purchasing this small business five years ago. Today, my Team and I have achieved State Farm President's Circle Agent Owner status--meaning we’ve performed in the top 2% of ALL State Farm Agencies nationwide. We did so by treating ALL customers like Family (yes, the capital "F" is intentional)!

When I was eight years old, my Dad died without proper insurance, leaving my Mom to continue working as a Hospice Care Provider (which she did for nearly 50 years) while raising myself and my siblings. From Mom's lessons, I worked while putting myself though college (Brown University, Providence RI), I worked through law school (Seattle University Law), I worked through passage of several Bar Exams (WA State, CA, GA & TX), I worked through enrollment in a Master of Fine Arts graduate program (Berkeley, CA) and I worked to earn a second law degree (Columbia University, NY, NY). Nearly 25 years of work (including with a few billionaires...yes, really) enabled me to pay off my Double Ivy League student load debt, save, then open and sustain this business. Thanks to Mom, no matter how hard things got, she always inspired me with belief, resilience and the right energies (and yes, I’m a huge fantasy/science fiction story lover, too)!

That quarter century of work paying off hundreds of thousands of student loan debt would've been avoided (and several successful businesses would've been started much earlier) with the right insurance protections! This is why my Team (who I support, encourage, and admire) and I sit down with our Families, "imagining their horrible hypotheticals together," then "building bulletproof protection plans together," which fund their dreams, to make them REALITIES, come what may! Demystifying the prior sentence, we take time to find out what matters most to YOU, offer coverage plans which protect YOU, and make YOUR dreams REALITY, so please call us today! Sincerely, genuinely, authentically, earnestly, honestly, virtuously and keeping it real, BELMS Friday, January 5, 2023 6:05 pm
