Fun With Annuities Podcast Celebrity Series
November 23, 2021
Welcome to the Fun With Annuities podcast, the one, and only LEAH BRANDT. Uh, who's that, you ask? She's the CEO/Director of Operations for The Annuity Man, LLC.
Let's talk about the title of this episode quickly because I don't want to speed past the fact she is a woman CEO in the annuity industry. With 32 years in annuities, she's forgotten more about this niche than most of us in the industry know, and that includes me. She is behind the scenes, but let me be clear, she is running this machine. Leah oversees everything from customer relations, the website, the videos, the podcasts, and our terrific team of employees. She gives me the freedom to focus on my strengths, like working one-on-one with clients and feeding my creativity as a content monster for the annuity industry.
Leah has been with me from the start. It was just her and me. We took the risks. We made the hard decisions. And, we had zero idea how the business would explode. Wowza. Hiring her was the best business decision I've ever made. Together, we've skyrocketed The Annuity Man to hockey stick/straight-up growth that seems to have no ceiling.
Leah breaks down our philosophy with this, "Annuities don't have to be sold. They can be bought. If you give enough education… answer enough questions… you don't have to try and be pitching anything."
I consider Leah, a friend, and her family is my family.
It was fun to look back and share stories about how we got started and some of the unique events and decisions that molded The Annuity Man into America's Annuity Agent and industry leader in the direct-to-consumer annuity space. When you combine a crazy outgoing visionary (me) with a mad-smart pragmatic leader (Leah), the winner is the annuity consumer. Both of us come from humble beginnings and are passionate about putting the client's best interests first. I get asked all the time how The Annuity Man is growing so fast and do we do everything we do week after week. Now you know - Leah.
I so enjoyed this podcast interview with my everyday annuity celebrity co-host. After this, it's going to be a son-of-a-gun to keep all you annuity lovers from blowing up her inbox.
