Every month, Schwartz Insurance Group selects a peer-nominated associate to receive a Core Value Award. The winner is chosen because they "lived" one of our agency's core values - typically an event or accomplishment above and beyond the call of duty in serving our customers. This month, Michell Fust has "lived" our core value of "Consider it Done."
Here's her story:
For an organization to attain growth and success, the key is having dedicated team players. An individual’s positive attitude and commitment can inspire fresh ideas and encourage the entire team to meet their goals and objectives.
No matter how hectic things get, you can (and do!) count on that team player to jump in and help teammates solve a problem or find an elusive answer – and they are always willing to learn and grow individually to increase team productivity.
Business Advisor Michell Fust does just that – she goes above and beyond to improve herself and her team. When help is needed, they can always “Consider it Done.”
Here, in her own words, is a little more information about Michell:
What do you find most challenging about your role as Business Advisor?
The most challenging thing I come across is trying to stay up to date with all the changes in the insurance world from coverages to companies. It really keeps a person on their toes!
If you could no longer work in the insurance field, what career would you choose?
Oddly enough, I would have been a cosmetologist or I would have chosen to work with computers somehow - two different ends of the spectrum.
What rock group gets your vote for the greatest band of all time? Or do you prefer country music?
I listen to all kinds of music, so I would have a hard time picking just one. So ... I'll give you my top three favorites: Keith Urban, Lucero and Ed Sheeran.
If you could go back in time and give your eighteen-year-old self a bit of advice, what would it be?
Follow your heart and dreams. Don't let anybody tell you that you can't do something. Figure out a way to achieve that dream and make it happen!
What adjective best describes you?
What might we be surprised to learn about you?
I've taken up the hobby of gardening over the past two summers and I find it very relaxing.
Congratulations on your Core Value Award, Michell - and thank you for doing such a great job for Schwartz Insurance Group. You are appreciated!
