Benefits of a Flexible Work From Home Schedule as an Insurance Agent

Oct. 9, 2020

If you’re thinking about a career change, working in the insurance industry can be one of the most rewarding options out there. Insurance professionals get to experience first-hand the satisfaction that comes from helping people get life insurance coverage to protect themselves - and their loved ones - from unforeseen risks. On a personal level, working as an insurance professional also offers perks that go beyond attractive earning potential. One of those perks is the flexibility that comes from being able to achieve your own definition of a successful career.

Rather than punching a clock and working a typical "9 to 5" job, insurance agents generally have great flexibility to arrange their own schedules, and that flexibility comes with several benefits.

1. Flexibility to handle all of life's demands

Life is busy; when you're working a full-time job, it can be stressful and frustrating to schedule time to go to medical appointments, attend children's sporting or music events, or to be home for a repairman or delivery person. When you have control over your schedule, you can often set up appointments with clients around those important life events while still getting your work done.

2. Reduced travel time and expenses

Working with a flexible schedule also reduces the time you spend commuting, as you can try to avoid rush-hour highways or crowded transportation when you do need to travel. When you work from home, you'll have zero commute to the office, saving both time and money.

3. Reduced burnout and fatigue

When you are in control of your work schedule, you can work when you feel the most alert and you can take breaks when you need to do so. You will also have the freedom to take a walk around your neighborhood, or try a yoga class at home, without having to leave the office or worry about rushing back to your desk.

4. Time to take care of yourself and your loved ones

Many people who have control over their work schedules report improvements to their physical and mental health. Job flexibility can give you the time you need in your busy schedule to get to the gym more often, cook healthier meals instead of rushing out during your lunch break, and to take control of your health by making and keeping regular medical and dental appointments.
