New York Life Insurance Careers
Growing up in the little town of Willcox, Arizona, New York Life Insurance Company District Agent Carrie Hall, CLU®, CFP® witnessed just what can happen when a family’s financial plan is not in order. Fresh out of college with a degree in Finance, tragedy struck her family. “My grandfather, who I was very close to, died suddenly in a ranching accident, ” she says. “Because he hadn’t had done any estate planning, my family became involved in a bitter court battle. I felt caught in the middle as I watched my family unravel.” Working for a small financial planning firm at the time, Ms. Hall was inspired to prevent other families from the same heartache. “I decided that I wouldn’t allow others to go through a similar situation if I could help it, ” she explained.
Be in control of your success
After a few years of experience and eager for more control in her career, Ms. Hall answered a recruitment advertisement for New York Life. “I liked that I would be in control of my success and that there was significant earning potential. If I wanted to dream big dreams, and had the courage and discipline to pursue those dreams, I could achieve them.” Today, she has been with New York Life for more than 20 years.
Ms. Hall has two roles: one as a District Agent mentoring new agents and also continuing to provide financial planning services as a Financial Adviser for Eagle Strategies LLC, a Registered Investment Adviser, as well as a Registered Representative for NYLIFE Securities LLC (member FINRA/SIPC), A Licensed Insurance Agency. Ms. Hall feels as if she has earned the privilege to set her own schedule. “I worked hard for many years, but it paid off. Now, I’m able to take Fridays off, and I’m available to my children which is very important to me.”
