My name is Candice Harnage, and I am the proud owner of Middle Georgia Medicare.
What inspired me to start a Medicare insurance agency? How did I get here? That is a great question I often ask myself. I certainly didn’t grow up dreaming about opening an insurance agency, yet here I am. In high school, I actually thought I would be a race car driver or a MTV VJ – you know, one of those hip and trendy announcers who introduced music videos and live performances on television. Oh, the things I would go back and tell that young girl!
We all know life and God have much different plans for us. I found myself starting in the insurance industry in 1998 as a very naive young adult. I worked in corporate America for twenty-one years. I learned a lot and am very grateful for that experience. The best thing out of it is: I realized I like people. I loved helping them, working with them, encouraging them, watching others succeed and building those relationships. Incorporate all the personal struggles I’ve gone through along with my work history, and I have found my true calling: helping others.
When I started working in the Medicare field, I instantly fell in love with it. Why? The people! I used to love helping my grandparents and my mother, especially. I miss simply talking with them, helping them with whatever they needed help with, and then getting that big hug. I found that working for myself and in the Medicare world, I can take my time, get to know my clients, build those relationships and truly help. It makes me happy and satisfies my soul. I think it really makes a big difference for my clients, too.
We all know God has a plan for us and he has the perfect timing. I never desired to be a business owner – or an insurance agent – and one random day, God put the desire in my heart. That was literally all she wrote. I talked to my husband, and without skipping a beat, he said go for it. There is no fancy story, just me and God’s plan. That’s it. I have been blessed and worked hard, and now I have my own agency!
My goal for Middle Georgia Medicare, and what I strive for as an agent, is truly to be a valuable asset to those in my community, to help others and to build long-lasting relationships. I see how many people are overwhelmed with the process and options of Medicare. And I am angered by those that get taken advantage of by the bad agents. I know Medicare agents come a dime a dozen; however, I assure you: I am not part of that dozen. With my team and me, you will find someone from your community with your best interest at heart.
