More About This Episode:
On today's episode, Jason Cass the business owner, speaker, and entrepreneur joins us to discuss self improvement, delegation, leadership, networking, and balance. Growing his business, The Insurance Alliance to three locations across southern Illinois, being the Chairman of the National Young Agents for the Big I, hosting his own podcast, and writing his best-selling novel, Customer Service is Just Foreplay: The Modern Customer Experience Will Separate You From Your Competition, Jason is a busy professional and he couldn't have accomplished these goals without balance and delegation.
To Jason, finding balance is the path to true enlightenment. If you want to be happy in life you have to find balance or harmony. For many of us, self-improvement is a way to get there. From acknowledging our faults to expanding our viewpoints through empathy and reading, a commitment to self-improvement is vital for many advisors. There comes a point where we need to realize where we need help and how we can manage our time better to achieve that goal. Instead of a mid-life crisis, Jason promotes a mid-life audit. Asking yourself, "What has been good in my life up until now? What has not been working and how can I add and improve on those aspects of my life?" The best version of yourself is the balanced version.
To find the success you have to learn to let go, to delegate, and to trust the team you have surrounded yourself with. We've all heard the saying "Work on your business, not in your business." But what does that really mean? Everyone should have a role, including yourself as the owner. As the owner, it's your responsibility to provide your team with the tools and resources they need to take care of clients. Most team members want to be part of a productive crew and learning to delegate can help them and yourself find balance.
