A Little Bit About Me

"I Love it"

1. Where are you from?
Spencerport NY


2. Any brothers, sisters, kids etc?
I’m Married with one son. I also have one brother and one sister.


3. Why do you like sales?

I enjoy the psychological game between two people where the sales person is trying to convince the customer they need to buy something and the customer is trying to convince the sales person they don’t need buy something. 

4. What inspires you?
My inspiration comes from a need to help people grow as individuals. I really enjoy being a part of the developmental process and assisting in opening people’s eyes to what their true potential actually is.


5. How do you be successful at TZ Insurance Solutions?
This is going to sound cheesy but look up TZ’s principles. It’s about being a high energy individual with a strong moral, ethical code that promotes integrity, respect and passion while being open to teamwork and accountability. Everyone’s career path is different but if we’re all united behind what this company stands for then we’ll be successful at all levels.


6. What is your goal for Pursue Excellence?
I want to inspire people to start looking at themselves at a much deeper level. People have a tendency to get complacent in life and stop digging into what makes them great and what else is inside that could make them even greater. The reason I picked Pursue Excellence is because I really do want people to Pursue Excellence. It’s the journey to a goal that will make someone better as a person, not whether they attain it. It all starts with understanding that an individual’s potential is limitless if their committed to learning and growing.


7. Tell us one interesting fact about yourself.
I have an identical twin brother. Yes he’s my best friend and no we don’t feel pain when the other one get’s hurt….

A Little Bit About Me

"What's going on big blue!"

1. Where are you from?
Raleigh, NC

2. Any brothers, sisters, kids etc?
J.R. is married to the love of his life, Shavawn Renee' Kelly and they have two handsome sons, Carter and Austin. He also has two older brothers as well as three older sisters

3. Why do you like sales?
Ever since I was a young kid, I’ve always been a talker. My teachers would always say that I was a good student, however I talked too much. There were times when I had the ability to convince the teacher they were wrong and I was right. Now that I’m older, I’ve learned to not only say the right things but have learned to listen to solve for issues and convince even the stingiest buyer to buy from me. It’s all about the hunt and the thrill of the close!

4. What inspires you?
My inspiration comes from the feeling I get when I can impact an individuals life in a positive manner, whether it’s me teaching them a skill they did not possess, motivating them to push harder or giving constructive criticism. When I witness someone growing personally or professionally based on what I was able to provide, it feels me with great accomplishment and joy.

5. How do you be successful at TZ Insurance Solutions?
I attribute my success to my ability to remain coachable. There are a lot of agents, supervisors and managers that are not able to get better because they refuse to believe they are able to learn more. Remaining humble enough to positively receive constructive criticism is vital in developmental growth.

6. What is your goal for Pursue Excellence?
I want Pursue Excellence to positively impact all of those that listen or watch it. Whether you are in sales or another profession, Pursue Excellence can be utilized for personal and professional growth. My goal is for us to become International Motivators using the core principles of TZ.

7. Tell us one interesting fact about yourself.
In high school, I turned a spot on the varsity basketball team to be on in the Drama Club. Let’s just say, it wasn’t received well. I eventually went to college to major in Broadcast Production, and currently do video projects. I’ve had the opportunity to meet the likes of Maya Angelou, Common, Cornel West and Oprah Winfrey through doing video and live event shooting. One day I hope to become a Media Mogul.
