Meet Charles Smith of Farmers in Studio City

Today we’d like to introduce you to Charles Smith.

Charles, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Well, it started when I was done with community college, I was taking classes to become a Medical Assistant. I graduated right after the passing of my father. As I was finding my way in life I went after several different things cooking, acting, and sales. I did not find the Medical field to be something I wanted to be apart of. I found myself really taken a liking to sell insurance and also working in financial markets. I also love acting but I figured I needed something that was going to pay the bills with a stable payment. I have been told I am a great actor based upon my natural ability to show emotions and also that helps in my skill set for sales. People love talking to me because I am real and honest and I just love to connect with people, and that’s all you need to become successful in a sales organization. Which is why I am where I am today!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Well, my childhood was a horrific stage in itself. I was physically and emotionally abused for many years. I fell into drugs and a life of crime as a teenager and if it wasn’t for my mom meeting the person I call my father I would have never changed he saved my life by showing and teaching me how to be a better person. It never is an easy road to success but as long as you have a strong desire and the will power to never stop and never give up you will become someone great in life. I have been homeless and broke as an adult but my determination and dedication for life have never quit on me. I am not the wealthiest person in the world but one thing is for sure I’ll never stop until I can’t do anymore! Life is what you make it not what others or what you think has happened to you that is holding you down the only person that limits your ability in life is yourself.

Tell us more about your work.
Well right now I work with Farmers insurance they have been around since the early 1900s they offer package deals that you can’t find anywhere else they care about people and they have the best cost of insurance in the industry. I can say I am proud to help out in a way that makes a difference in people’s life.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success is the ability to be dedicated and passionate and have a drive that just doesn’t quit building a legacy that will never stop that last forever! Money is a big plus that just comes along with success but without dedication and passion success can never be achieved!
