ME AND EFU LIFE:

I started my career as an entrepreneur and managed a retail mobile outlet of my own. My late elder brother encouraged me to assist him in his business to which I agreed and worked with him for a span of 5 years. After the unfortunate demise of my brother, I decided to choose a sustainable and rewarding career path for myself and joined EFU Life as a sales consultant in 2014. Since then, I have been qualifying for Falcon consecutively for 5 years and have been awarded the title of star performer. All of this would not have been possible without the blessings of God and the support I got from my seniors.

MY HOBBIES & INTEREST

Building healthy relationship by meeting new people, travelling and exploring new ideas / things through my social networks.

MY MOTIVATION:

Only thing which highly motivates me to work with EFU Life Assurance is that this brand is a platform which provides financial assistance to those families who need it the most. I have achieved respect, satisfaction & substantial earnings which can fulfill my family’s financial needs.

MY MESSAGE:

The greatest tools to succeed in this profession is to believe in oneself, have respect for seniors, be hardworking & dedicated, be a good mentor and dutifully work everyday.

Introduction:

Like most of the Insurance Sales Consultants, I did not plan to join this Industry. My uncle was in the General Insurance line and he convinced me to join the industry, which I did 21 years ago. For the first 5 years, my practice was mainly General and Corporate Health Insurances. One of my clients wanted life insurance and wanted me to be the one helping him with that. Because of his insistence, I went through the training and agency process and started my Financial Consultancy Portfolio with EFU Life Assurance.

ME AND EFU LIFE:

I started my career with EFU Life in 2002. I did not actively, pursue Life Sales until 2004 when I qualified for Million Dollar Round Table (www.mdrt.org) for the first time and never looked back since then. I am a Life member (10 Consecutive years) and on the Honor Roll (15 Consecutive years) of MDRT. I would like to thank Husein Sachak for showing me what recognition feels like while seeing how lucrative this career can be. Rehan Anwer has continued with that and has been a great manager helping me become even more prosperous. EFU Life has made me a better sales person and definitely a more prosperous one. Today I manage a portfolio of over 400 Clients in Financial Consultancy.

MY HOBBIES

I enjoy socializing which is a great help in my line of work. Travelling is something that I love and EFU Life has given me opportunities to see the world. To name a few Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Kenya, Turkey, Russia, Australia, USA and Canada are places that I have travelled with EFU Life.

MY MOTIVATION:

My Parents, whose prayers have gotten me to where I am today and my Wife and Kids whose support has helped me give so much time to my work. Providing them with all the comforts of life has been my biggest motivator. I feel that every individual should be able to have a support structure in times of need and this is where my profession comes in play.

MY MESSAGE:

My Message would be not to come into our field by accident but by Choice. It is a fantastic thing that we do. We get to meet people from all walks of life and help them plan their future. This is not a job but a business. The more you put in the more reward you get. Two years of hard work gives you Twenty years of return in our line of work.

ME AND EFU LIFE:

“In the name of Allah, most gracious and most merciful”
Asalam o Aliekum,
I had graduated with my MBA in Marketing from Peshawar. Before Joining EFU Life Assurance Ltd. I had worked in several different financial organizations (Banking and Finance) at Peshawar.
In 2011, while giving a presentation to Mr. Atif Dildar Khan (currently serving as AGM North in another Life Insurance Company), I was able to impress him with my skills to an extent that he had offered me a position in his team. Till date, I regard him for introducing me to the life insurance sector, after which I followed his footsteps and in a very short span of time (less than 2 years) I was able to achieve Million Rupee Club membership (3 times in a row).
Then in 2014, I moved to Lahore and joined EFU LIFE ASSURANCE LTD. under the leadership of Mr. Tanveer Ahmed Khan (Zonal Manager) as a Sales Consultant. Since 2015, I had qualified for the position of Business Development Manager, consecutively attended 5 MDRTs and two Falcon Memberships.
During my five year association with EFU Life Assurance Ltd., I had learnt a lot from Mr. Mustafa Hussain Oownwala (our NSD), Mr. Muhammad Younis Butt (our ANSD), Mr. Tanveer Ahmed Khan (ZM) and Mr. Mahmood Ahmed (Sr. BM)

MY HOBBIES AND INTERESTS

Though I am rarely able to spare some time from my routine work, but whenever I do, I indulge in outdoor sport, explore new places, travel & shop. I love to devote my time for my future.

MY MOTIVATION:

I derive my inspiration from my honorable bosses Mr. Muhammad Amjad and Mr. Zahid Ali Raza.
Both have been very supportive throughout my career and have contributed to my professional development at every stage.
I look up to the higher management as a source of motivation and thank our CEO Mr. Taher G Sachak and our NSD Mr. Mustafa Hussain Oonwala for leading us.“Desire to be the best”
Motivation is a fire that originates from within. If someone else tries to light that fire for you then it will not shine that bright rather light it up yourself to create an impact. I take pride in my work and sense of accomplishment drives me across limits

MY MESSAGE:

Winners from all areas of life devise and follow their own strategies, but all of them have one thing in common – they TRY! So keep trying till you win.
