Jacquie started her business, Translating Insurance, LLC, after being a stay-at-home mom for six years. Before electing to stay home with her children, she worked in financial services and sales & marketing.
“My brain was starting to atrophy and I needed to do something outside of the home. I was inspired by my best friend to get into Medicare,” she explains. As she got to know the MOB Nation community, she realized there was a need for education and support around insurance options for self-employed and small business owners with families.
That unmet need was what inspired her to open her business. “I want to be here for mom business owners to help them find affordable health insurance so they can focus on growing their businesses and being amazing moms!"
As an independent health insurance broker she is contracted with all the Medicare and Individual Health major medical plans in the Oregon market. It is free to work with Jacquie since she is paid by the carriers, not the consumers. Jacquie can also help you if you are in Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Texas.
Jacquie says she has several mentors she admires. “My work mentor is Malia Rogers, a broker and my best friend in Idaho. My spiritual mentor is Dr. Shawn Lenhardt and my life mentors are my parents, who taught me to be kind and fair to others and to always give people grace instead of condemnation.”
As anyone who has worked with Jacquie knows, she has a true passion for the work she does so it makes sense that her biggest struggle comes from setting boundaries and not overbooking herself. “I love to serve so much, but I do sometimes sacrifice time with my family to work. I think my kids feel like I love to work more than anything else.”
Jacquie says a big part of her motivation when things get hard it looking at her long term goals of home ownership and being financially free.
She would advise her younger self to spend less money on buying leads and more on connecting with humans and the community. “Connections are everything. People want to work with people that they trust, or people their friends trust and highly recommend.”
Her ideal referral is helping people who are turning 65 enroll in Medicare and Medicare supplements. She also loves helping families find affordable health insurance.
Jacquie would advise new business owners to join the MOB Alliance and take advantage of its benefits. “It has 100000000% paid off for me and the MOB has grown my business substantially.. Going to the meetups provides me with the emotional connection I desire with other adults. I feel like I'm walking into a group of friends every time I go to a meetup. And they keep their eyes out in the community for referrals and ways to tag me in posts. I truly appreciate this group,” she explains.
Since she attends multiple meetups each month, she loves that she can attend any and all meetups at no extra cost.
