Jim Rasberry, 34, owner and president of Rasberry Financial Services in Laurel, got an early start in the industry.
“I got a life insurance license when I was 19 and started selling life insurance when I was a sophomore in college,” Rasberry said.
“When I was a junior in college, I got an investment license and started selling mutual funds and annuities. I thought I needed to get a head start.
“I played golf in college, and in between studies and golf team matches and practices, I needed a job that could be flexible and was in my field of interest. By the time I finished college, I had a pretty good little book of business to where I started Rasberry Financial Services going into business in 2006.”
