Episode 96: Making the Donuts with Bradley Flowers

In this week’s episode, I am excited to be joined by Bradley Flowers.   Brad is not only the owner of Portal Insurance, a nationally recognized insurance agency, but he also helps other agents with this podcast, The Insurance Guys.   While most guys fall into the insurance business, Bradly actually had the goal from the age of 16.  Listen to the story of his approach to the insurance business, getting into podcasting and the success of his Vlog, Making the Donuts, to both recruit agents and attract new clients.


  • Realizing the direction he wanted to head, Bradley took a pay cut to learn PNC
  • How a chat about social media led to the creation of a podcast
  • His move into starting his own insurance company
  • How a bad first impression led Progressive to pass him up and what he did to become a Progressive Platinum Agency
  • Using a Vlog to increase awareness of the value of working as a Portal agent, not just an insurance agent as well as giving potential clients a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the company
