See the adorable blonde holding the I-phone? 

That is my daughter Katie O’Brien

What does this have to do with insurance?  Absolutely nothing.  I am just a very proud mama.  Katie is 27 and has two prime time TV shows in production where she is a writer and executive producer.  She currently has a pilot for NBC in production called “Young Widow.”

Why is she so successful at such a young age? Talent for sure; she is smart and she is a good writer.  But she also possesses that good ol’ Midwestern work ethic.  She follows through on a project.  She meets her deadlines.  She treats people kindly.  She is a thoughtful person with a positive outlook on life.   That, my Dear Readers, is the magic formula for success.
