Since the day she walked into her interview with American Income Life (AIL), Iris Saavedra knew she wanted to become an Agency leader. “I saw it was a great opportunity to execute innovative ideas that can help families get protected and provide opportunities for growth, especially in the Hispanic community,” she says.
As a woman professional, Iris believes she brings something to the table as an Agency leader. “We are in an industry that needs more female leaders – strong role models that can give hope and inspire other women that we, too, can be Agency leaders for an insurance company,” she says. Iris also believes that as the Hispanic population grows, being a Hispanic woman gives her the opportunity to help these two markets and provide growth to her Agency.
Since joining AIL, Iris feels that her greatest accomplishment has been her ability to help change the financial situation of the agents that are part of her team. As a single mother of two, she also takes pride in being able to make sure her children are well provided for. “I had to push through adversity, all on my own,” she says. “I pushed through college and through raising two kids by myself. I’m sharing my story as testimony that opportunity is unlimited with AIL if you spread your wings without fear. You can accomplish anything you want if you have belief without fear.”
Though Iris notes that her priority right now is her business, she loves hiking, skydiving, and traveling when she has the time. She also loves reading about other cultures and trying different types of food. “I believe you can get to know people through their food,” she says. Above everything else, Iris loves being with her family.
If you’re looking for your own opportunity, Iris attests that AIL is the place to look. “We offer a career opportunity to those who want to succeed,” she says. “We provide coaching, mentoring, and support for those in the community who want an economic change.”
