Paul Wilson: How did you get your start in the benefits industry?

I didn’t grow up thinking I would get into insurance. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart, so I tried to find something that would be a good fit. When I saw the benefits model, I liked that I got to go out and speak to people, and it required more time than money to get it off the ground. I fashion myself an entrepreneur more than an insurance professional, it’s just that insurance is the avenue I chose. It wasn’t haphazardly, it was because this is such a good business model. I’ve been in the business for about 25 years now. It’s been a long run.
