#InsuranceAgents: The Person Behind the Professional - Meet David Vo with David H Vo Farmers Insurance | The Hive Five

Sep 07, 2018, 12:45 AM

Today on the Person Behind the Professional, we are glad to be talking with David Vo, a Farmers Insurance agent in Arlington, Texas. David started his agency over two years ago, and offers auto insurance, home insurance, life insurance, and more. Before starting his agency, he has a varied background in sales, and also served in the United States Army for five years.

Right out of high school, David followed in the footsteps of his family and tried working in IT. However, he learned quickly that it wasn’t for him and he jumped in cellphone sales for over 3 years, really loving it. After this, he transitioned to auto sales and worked for Volkswagen for about 3 years as well. At this point, the recession was occurring in the economy and David had always wanted to be in the military since he was a kid. During this time, at twenty-five years old, he enlisted in the Army. He shipped out a couple months later to boot camp as an infantryman and was first assigned to Germany for even more training. Six months later, he was deployed to northern Afghanistan. His unit was tasked with fighting the Taliban, gathering intelligence, and training the Afghan National Police to take the US military’s place.

David talks about all of this military experience, what it’s like to be under fire, searching and handling IED’s, and more in this episode. He also gives his unique perspective and how this experience has affected his position as an insurance agent and creating strategy for growing his agency and business.

Please leave us a review and tell us what you thought about the unique perspective of a soldier turned insurance agent!
