I used to dread and avoid being an insurance sales agent. While I know it’s a lucrative career, I don’t think I’m cut out for that job. First, I don’t have the guts to approach people and offer my products. Second, I don’t take defeat lightly. Being turned down by a potential client, which I consider defeat, will significantly diminish my self-esteem. Suffice it to say that I’d rather be the one buying an insurance product than the one selling it.

I also used to believe that shy people, like me, will have no success in sales. Boy, was I wrong! I’ve learned from Darwin Uyco and Christine Lee of Sun Life Financial that they have a Financial Advisor, who’s the quiet type, but who is one of their top producers. Well, I might have a future in sales after all! You might want to become a Sun Life Financial Advisor, too, so here are some things you should know about this job position.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.



I am so proud to introduce the collection of some my best written works from this personal blog, Pensive Thoughts.
