Q&A WITH ZACK SCHAEFER
TELL US ABOUT WHAT YOU DO AT BHC INSURANCE
My job at BHC is to protect my clients from potential losses. I spend my time educating my clients on commercial insurance, providing them with the knowledge they need to feel comfortable allowing me to guard their biggest assets. I strive to show them the importance of insurance and just how valuable the right policy can be.
If you do business with me, you will always get a smile. I pride myself on having a positive attitude in whatever the situation may be. Unfortunately losses do happen, and when they do, I want my clients to know they can count on me.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR WORDS TO LIVE BY?
In every facet of life, I always remind myself “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.” It’s the title of a book by Marshall Goldsmith. I am always pushing myself to be better, I am proud of what I accomplish but look forward to the challenges ahead. I have learned a lot about myself by constantly raising the bar.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT LIVING AND WORKING IN SALLISAW?
My favorite thing about the community is that we have a lot of people that care. Sallisaw has come a long way and is continuing to grow and prosper. I am grateful for the ones before me that have helped facilitate this growth and look forward to being a part of the new generation of growth in my community.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Katie, and we welcomed our first child into the world in July 2021, Nellie Kate. We have two dog children, Hudson & Heidi. Our family is constantly growing with a sister, three sisters-in-law, a brother-in-law and a niece and nephew. We enjoy spending time together cooking out, playing games, and watching our kids grow up.
