After about seven years in Utah, it's time to move back to California. I've been working in the insurance industry now for several months and the opportunity to move to Sacramento and manage the office has arisen. Such a change is many times not easy to make and it took us some time to decide that's what we wanted to do, but we are very excited about the opportunity to move back and be a bit closer to most of our family. I will also be salary plus commission now which will provide a bit more stability as well.
I'll be managing an office out here for our insurance company and really we're starting from scratch. We've already hired a few agents who have a lot of promise and we are in the process of getting off the ground. This market has a lot of folks who need what we offer and there is a great opportunity in front of us.
I've never spent much time in the Sacramento area, so I was a bit surprised at how beautiful it is. There are trees everywhere (I found out it's called "The City of Trees), rolling hills, and you can still get a piece of land in some spots. It will also be nice to near all California has to offer as far as lakes, mountains, and beaches.
Next Friday we'll be heading out here with a truck load of all our belongings to move into our apartment which is only a couple of blocks from my office and in a pretty nice area (right on a lake).
