Shawn Meaike, founder and president of Family First Life, started his career as a social worker. He decided to pursue a much more significant role in a much bigger industry to fulfill his dream of helping others through his work. He used his dedication and strong will to help build a company that is now projected to be a billion-dollar company by 2022.
Shawn launched FFL back in 2013 with the desire to help families get protected through insurance and help people get employed as insurance agents. Until now, he maintains this idea of putting the welfare of both the families of clients and agents first. Shawn further emphasized the role of satisfied clients and fulfilled agents in both the financial and organizational success of Family First Life.
Just like any other business, Family First Life started out small, facing numerous challenges along the way, including having little access to capital. Shawn Meaike and his team built the foundation of the company by equipping their own agents with the necessary skills to be successful in their roles. He and his company strongly believe that it is hard to be successful in the insurance industry without purchasing leads.
Family First Life has over 17,000 licensed agents across the United States. These agents are marketing life insurance, final expense, mortgage protection, and annuities to clients nationwide. The agents are highly trained and have mentorship programs that enable them to do a great job.
What Shawn Meaike considers Family First Life’s primary goal is to have the highest-paid agents in the industry. At the same time, they also strive to serve more families than any other Independent Marketing Organization. Shawn sets attainable and realistic objectives for the company he has been leading for almost a decade.
Shawn Meaike believes that collective work and focusing on goals are the most important things when it comes to building a successful business. For him, the solution-based thinking of Family First Life is what keeps it solid despite the strong competition in the industry. Their agency is ready for all kinds of challenges and changes as they make sure they are many steps ahead of their competitors.
Family First Life is aiming to be a billion-dollar company by 2022. It continues to maintain the excellence it has established in the industry. The company expects to have over 125 agents write over $400,000 in paid premiums and six agents over a million dollars in 2021. This is a testament to how FFL has helped its agents and clients secure their finances and future.
With its constant growth since its inception in late 2013, Family First Life shows no signs of slowing down in the insurance industry. Shawn Meaike and his team are revolutionizing the insurance industry and want to have a big impact on the lives of American families. By empowering agents and rewarding them for their work, Family First Life has set a precedent for independent marketing organizations looking to scale and grow.
