We Are Passionate About Protecting Your Family’s Future
My career started in the insurance industry in 1998 and that is when I knew that my calling was to help protect what people value most…FAMILY. Over the years, I have learned that you can get what you want out of life by helping others get what they want out of life. That is why I started Benavides Financial Group — to offer a multitude of products to help my clients through different stages of their lives. I start by creating a foundation for them to build on and continue to positively impact their lives as they progress.
I have noticed that the mentality of society has changed. Today, many people seek instant gratification and do not tend to plan for the future like they used to. I have learned some time ago that most people don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan. That is the trend I want to reverse. I feel that is my purpose here and that is where my passion lies. A friend who I had the pleasure of working with early in my career who now owns a successful business recently said to me, “I remember when we worked together that you were very passionate about helping people.” That statement brought me back to the start of my career and I thought of my mentor, my father.
Our founder, Kevin K. Benavides, was fortunate to be mentored by his father who worked for the same insurance company for 38 years. His father started his career from humble beginnings and with many odds stacked against him. He turned out to be one of the most successful home service agents in our company. Kevin had the pleasure of working with him for several years and he always said, “If you take care of your people, your people will take care of you.” This resonates with our company to this day and has throughout Kevin’s career in sales. “He taught me accountability and integrity, but most of all, loyalty. His mentorship has been invaluable. I feel that if I provide the best service to both my clients and my agents that I may someday be like my father — my mentor, my hero.” -Kevin Benavides
Looking toward the future, we feel our path lies beyond helping just our clients change their lives, but also in helping the agents that serve those clients change their lives as well. We do this by mentoring them just as our founder, Kevin K. Benavides’ father mentored him, passing on decades of experience and knowledge. What we offer is a blueprint of how to provide innovative products to their clients, receive desirable compensation, and the opportunity to provide residual income for their own families by building their own teams. Sir Richard Branson said, “There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passions – in a way that serves the world and you.” Through Benavides Financial Group, our team aspires to do what they love by following their passions and realizing their dreams by serving others and helping them make their lives better.
