We share entrepreneurial stories to inspire

Stacey Aarssen

I have spent the last 15 years learning everything there is to know about the insurance industry. I am currently applying this knowledge, helping people understand the insurance plan that is most suited to their needs. Whether it be to cover them if they become sick, have something tragic happen while travelling, become disabled, get cancer, or die suddenly. They know they are protected if any tragic event happens in their life.  Connect with Stacey @ https://www.ironshield.ca/

Getting back to the basics, Stacey Aarssen

Tell us a little something about your business...

It was spring 2005 and I was attending a personal development program. It was during this weekend, that I realized I should be educating people with financial literacy. Shortly after that weekend, I decided to get my license to become a financial advisor. Looking back there are so many things I would have done differently, but the item that holds true for me, is education and financial literacy. We are living in unprecedented times and the unknown can be a very scary thing for a lot of people. Having your financial house in order is paramount to living a fulfilling life. It is my mission to educate and empower people with financial literacy. I have the honor to work with my best friend and father to our amazing daughters and together we enlighten our clients with the best knowledge and solutions in the current market place.

When was your lightbulb moment?

Two years ago, I had thought I was bogged down with the financial services industry. I had done some research and decided to try some other things on the side for fun. Although it was fun at the beginning, I realized my heart was not truly in it for the long haul. When COVID-19 entered our world, one thing that became extremely clear, was my mission to empower and educate people with financial literacy. So many light bulbs brightened my world. My expertise is with insurance and so many people don’t understand what they have or paying for. I’m so excited to be back on track with a purpose.

What are your three words of advice?

Integrity – is my most import value when meeting people and how I do business. Empower – By empowering others, they will grow. There’s nothing better than seeing others grow, by your advice. Collaboration – It takes a village to raise a child. This goes in business too. By collaborating with others, we build better solutions for our customers.  Never give up. Every morning is a new day, to either keep going or start again.

Three words of advice...
