Life Beyond Ramen

Viva Chan was one of our excellent journalism students who did very good work at the San Francisco Business Journal, establishing herself as a journalist, and then said (after ten years in the trenches) , "That was fun. Now what?"

She writes:

I'm almost reaching my 2nd year anniversary with State Farm and just added a second state license under my belt, so that means I can write life ins, health, auto and home policies. I really enjoy what I am doing and building relationships with clients. My past experience in the media field definitely benefits how I interact in my current sales and marketing role. Skills like "keep asking until I get a restraining order."

Here's my biz card ... and I'll be more than happy to send you a free gas card for each referral!

So many ways to do good work in the world. Now we have a friend in the insurance business.
