Jeremy’s Journal Volume 3: January 22nd – January 26th, 2024

Hey there, it’s Jeremy Ochsner with your one-take journal for the week beginning January 22nd through Friday, January 26th. This week was on my mind for a long time, with the waterfowl season coming to a close for the 2024 season, and I knew I wouldn’t be out in the field. But we had a men’s encounter starting on the 26th in the evening, so I knew it was going to be a jam-packed week with four days of work ahead.

Let’s dive into what happened during this busy week.

  1. Marketing Updates: We made more phone calls than the previous week, which is a positive sign. However, we’re still not doing the marketing drops we’ve discussed. We’re in the process of revamping how we create information to share, and this should be completed by the first week of February. This approach aims to maintain brand consistency and make our marketing efforts more effective.
  2. Content Production: We’re hitting some of our content production goals, which is great news. We’re starting to establish a consistent rhythm, although we’re currently behind by about a week due to the encounter and being under the weather. But we’re committed to catching up and staying on track.
  3. Lessons from “Who Not How”: We’re almost done reading the book “Who Not How.” One valuable lesson we’ve taken from it is that a creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others (Ayn Rand). This lesson resonates with someone like me who is competitive, reminding us to focus on creativity and helping others without worrying about competition or who holds certain roles. It’s all about serving others well. Philippians 2:4 NASB2020 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.
  4. Business Progress: While there were no closed premiums this week, there’s a lot of activity in the pipeline, which is a promising sign. We’re excited about what’s in store for February at Ochsner Insurance.
  5. Team Update: Our CSR/Assistant is doing fantastic. She’s quickly learning the insurance side of things for the backend and assisting with tasks that don’t require client interaction. We’re impressed with her progress and are having a one-on-one, weekly meeting to discuss her work and identify areas for further training and improvement. She’s also adapting to using Hawksoft, our partner for insurance software, and we’re grateful for their support.

In conclusion, this week was packed with work and an important men’s encounter, but we’re making progress in various areas of our business. We’re looking forward to what the future holds for Ochsner Insurance in 2024. Thank you for following along on this journal, and stay tuned for more weekly, updates.
