My first question is, “what do you want to know?” Because I am not real sure how to best approach the topic of me – the who, what, when, and how. Do I give you my generic interview/resume response, my pageantry answer, or do you want more in-depth insight? If so, give me a second to lie down on a couch! I’ll warn you ahead of time, by the time you finish reading this, you may very well decide I need to spend more time on a couch.

The classic question everyone ask when they first meet someone is “what do you do for a living?” This question always tickles me because most folks use the question’s answer to measure a person. How I make a living does not define me. Nor do I define any person by their choice of employment. For that reason, I rarely ask anyone what he or she does for a living. The real question is, “what you do? When you are not at the job?”[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][slider width=”100%” height=”100%” class=”” id=””][slide type=”image” link=”” linktarget=”_self” lightbox=”yes”]http://marshallinsurancetexas.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/iStock_000019011108Large-300×200.jpg[/slide][slide type=”image” link=”” linktarget=”_self” lightbox=”yes”]http://marshallinsurancetexas.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/ECBlogFamily-300×200.jpg[/slide][slide type=”image” link=”” linktarget=”_self” lightbox=”yes”]http://marshallinsurancetexas.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/iStock_000016337426Large-300×225.jpg[/slide][/slider][/one_half][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][title size=”1″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=”” class=”” id=””]Proud to be[/title][accordian class=”” id=””][toggle title=”I am a proud local boy” open=”no”]

I love this area. I think there is so much to love about our area, the Ark-La-Tex, nearby floats one of the prettiest lakes ever – Caddo Lake. Marshall is a great little town. I love the small town cheesy stuff. When you go to one of our parades, half the town is there; the other half is in the parade. You can still let your kids run and play. When I move from here, it will be six feet down.

Many of my prayers focus on being a better person – a better dad, husband, neighbor, and insurance person. With that thought I mind, my kids like me; wife has not left; the neighbors wave; we have more clients today than we had yesterday; and I know Jesus loves me. About now, a few of you are probably suggesting I spend a little time praying for writing skills!

[/toggle][toggle title=” I am very proud to be an insurance agent” open=”no”] I work long hard hours and, for the most part, enjoy every day. My motto is: Monday is the best day of the week because you have all week to work. Friday is a sad day because the work week is over. I started working in the insurance industry in 2000 and opened my own agency in 2004. In a separate section, I spend a great deal more time on our agency mission and history.

• I am smart enough to know how dumb I am
• I like details but love the big picture
• I am a serious guy who is always looking for the humor in life
• I will stop and ask for directions, but love the sites discovered when lost
• “Some assembly required” is music to my ears
• The glass is always half full
• “It is what it is…” stumbles out of my mouth daily[/toggle][toggle title=”I am a very good artist” open=”no”]Something completely out of left field: I am a very good artist. I have painted seriously since the age of eleven. In fact, I have a master’s level degree in studio art. How did I get from the studio to insurance agency? It is a long story. Short version: My family is first, second, and last on my list of priorities. The insurance business allows me to provide for them.[/toggle][toggle title=”I am okay guy and a very good agent” open=”no”]Talking about oneself is tough stuff. I think it is hard to do it within the parameters of this format. I think what is important to me for you to know about me is this: I am okay guy and a very good agent, who works hard to discover the very best price and protection for your needs. I think there is so much more to your insurance policy then, “Sign here, here and here and your down payment is…” Bottom line: We try to take the cussing and fussing out of insurance, especially when it comes to claims. Lastly, if you are still reading, then you are someone I want to meet, and I would very much like to help you with your insurance needs.[/toggle][/accordian][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][title size=”1″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=”” class=”” id=””]Doug’s Crazy Skills[/title][progress percentage=”100″ unit=”” filledcolor=”” unfilledcolor=”” striped=”no” animated_stripes=”no” textcolor=”” class=”” id=””]LOCAL GUY:[/progress][progress percentage=”100″ unit=”” filledcolor=”” unfilledcolor=”” striped=”no” animated_stripes=”no” textcolor=”” class=”” id=””]INSURANCE AGENT:[/progress][progress percentage=”100″ unit=”” filledcolor=”” unfilledcolor=”” striped=”no” animated_stripes=”no” textcolor=”” class=”” id=””]ARTIST:[/progress][progress percentage=”95″ unit=”” filledcolor=”” unfilledcolor=”” striped=”no” animated_stripes=”no” textcolor=”” class=”” id=””]OKAY GUY:[/progress][/one_half][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”15″ bottom_margin=”15″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”” class=”” id=””][title size=”1″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=”” class=”” id=””]Meet Our Team[/title][one_third last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][person name=”Douglas D.
