Felicia Petersson earned a degree in Business at Edward S. Ageno School of Business at Golden Gate University in Sacramento. During her studies she realized she was interested in the subject of insurance and in particular, property and casualty insurance. With this new found interest, she continued her studies and became a California licensed insurance agent in 2007.
Felicia feels it is important she share her vast knowledge about car insurance.
In her own words; "People should learn more about the many faceted world of car insurance. Car insurance is an important and unavoidable part of our lives, yet most people give it very little attention. Unfortunately, neglecting to learn more about one's car insurance can be hazardous. There are many variables and pitfalls to car insurance that many people aren't aware of. It is all too easy to sign on to an inadequate car insurance policy and later wish you had better coverage after you've had an accident."
"Unfortunately too many people go into denial with regards to insurance assuming, "I'll probably never need to use my insurance anyway". This is understandable since, yes, it might not happen to you. However, statistics show again and again that car thefts and car accidents happen to an unbelievably large percentage of our population every year; and the losses that people sustain are staggering."
Felicia began her personal growth process while growing up in Sacramento, CA. The book that began her path was titled Use Your Brain for a Change, by Richard Bandler. In it she discovered invaluable keys to being able to control one's destiny by simply controlling one's thought patterns. The ideas excited her and seemed to actually work. She continued exploring these concepts by reading similar and equally informative books such as Thoughts & Feelings: Taking Control of Your Moods and Your Life, by Matthew McKay and Take Control of Your Thoughts: Pulling Down Strongholds in Your Mind, by Donald Shorter.
Felicia found that the more she applied teachings from these books, the more she was able to materialize her wishes. She credits her positive attitude towards life and most of her achievements to her new found control over her thoughts and continues to benefit from this powerful form of discipline.
"Always work from the inside out and you will see results." claims Felicia.
As Felicia finished her studies and started preparing to look for employment, she found the book The Courage to Be Yourself: A Woman's Guide to Emotional Strength and Self-Esteem, by Sue Patton Thoele, to be the perfect guide to establishing herself in the insurance community, while being herself at the same time.
"The Courage to Be Yourself helped my believe in myself in a way that made other's believe in me. After reading the book and practicing it's disciplines, I was ready to go to my first brokerage firm interview. The interview went smooth, I was comfortable and I was hired a few days later. Yes, a good education is important, but an employer isn't just hiring a degree. They are also hiring a person whom they trust and feel comfortable with. The Courage to Be Yourself definitely had something to do with my "good fortune".
The next book Felicia read, The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be, by Jack Canfield and Janet Switzer, was yet another addition to Felicia's ever building library of self empowering literature. In it she found excellent and simple to understand techniques of creating success in your life.
"I love the author's idea of "become an inverse paranoid". It sounds strange at first, but the idea of seeing the world as "out to help you" instead of "out to get you", is simply brilliant."
When she's not working, Felicia enjoys riding horses, swimming and reading good books.
"I still lean toward self help books, but now and again I'll pick up a novel. After all, it's also healthy to escape reality once in a while as well. A good novel can bring you into a completely new world and jog your imagination in a way that nothing else can."
