Jackson, Alabama, Agency Owner Keith Mitchell was in the Liberty National Life Insurance Company family when he was still only a twinkle in his father’s eye. “My father was working for Liberty National when I was born,” recalls Keith. “I have been with Liberty National since I was 21 because at that time Liberty could not hire you at 20. Liberty National has provided for me and my family my entire life and given me many opportunities for advancement as well as financial stability. I would love to see as many people as possible have this same opportunity.”
Keith’s dad retired from Liberty National after 31 great years, and Keith is following close at his heels. During his 29 years with Liberty National, Keith has been promoted to Agency Owner, been a member of the Council of Champions, and earned 16 Torch Club Convention qualifications. He has traveled around the world to exotic Torch Club destinations compliments of Liberty National.
What is most rewarding about Liberty National for Keith? He says, “it’s being able to wake up each morning and know that I’m going to get paid for helping people.” Keith’s ‘ah ha’ moment at Liberty National came while watching his son play ball. He talked to a parent of one of his son’s teammates who had five children and no life insurance. Keith set an appointment later in the week and sold the family a policy. Six weeks later, the wife was killed in an auto accident. The husband later told Keith if it was not for Liberty National he would not be able to raise his family. “It was a sad moment but a great feeling knowing how I touched someone’s life and how it made a difference.”
That experience made Keith keenly aware of how important Liberty National products are. “Our products help people in many ways,” says Keith. “One of the most important is income replacement. When you die, your income dies along with you, but your family’s need for income continues. I love being able to wake up each morning and know that I’m going to get paid for helping people! I love insurance and sports in that order!”
Like many Liberty National Agency Owners, Keith actively supports several organizations such as the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, the local chapter of the CCARC, a nonprofit organization serving people with developmental disabilities, and local schools. Keith’s Agency office also supports the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
Keith definitely recommends Liberty National as a career choice. “If you want to make a wonderful living by helping people,” emphasizes Keith “Liberty National can provide a rewarding career for you.
