How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it? I have been in business management all my life and had interest in various businesses in the area. In the winter of 2011, I was approached by a recruiter from State Farm. I figured there was no better opportunity than helping clients for the largest insurance company in the world and to establish a growing business with the most recognizable name in the insurance business. Protecting customers’ assets and interests were my biggest motivations to get into the business. I have always been driven by customers’ needs and making sure they were happy with my service levels. Being a State Farm insurance agent, I am a qualified professional whose primary function is to make life a little easier for my policyholders. At the Jimmy Hinkle State Farm Agency, our mission is to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected and realize their dreams.
