Agents in Action: Young Tran

Agent Young Tran of Portland, Oregon, is one of our newest agents!

How did you hear about Catholic Order of Foresters (COF)?

I searched through Google, LinkedIn, and social media to find the right Catholic organization to do business with. I finally found Catholic Order of Foresters (COF) and knew I had to find a way to be a part of its mission. I asked my business partner, Agent Gabe Kennedy, to contact COF and find out if we can schedule a meeting. The rest is history.

What drew you to contract with us?

COF is a faith-based organization with life insurance products that are suitable for my clients. For example, Genesis Life has very strong cash value and death benefits, and our Disability Income Rider makes the product even more powerful.

What has been the most rewarding part so far?

The most rewarding part is working with a Catholic service. It allows me to strengthen the faith within my family and community and continue to promote Catholic values. You can be a part of something larger than yourself.

In the Vietnamese community, 117 martyrs died because of their faith. We have a strong faith-and-family orientation. COF allows me to connect to clients near and far while connecting with them on a deeper level.

What made you pursue the life insurance industry for your career?

Life insurance is a strong and robust instrument for all families. The impact life insurance can have on a family is powerful.

What are the best pieces of advice you have received?

Be humble. Be willing to step up to challenges. Be able to work as a team. Be generous to the people you work with.
