Reasons for Isao to aim for the insurance industry
I had an opportunity to ask why Prudential of Japan Champion Isao Mizutani was aiming for the insurance industry and summarized it.
Isao Mizutani, Life Planner at Prudential Life Insurance Company. In 2012, Mr. Mizutani won the "Prudential of Japan Champion", the title given to the most outstanding Prudential life planner.
Mr. Mizutani has such a glorious track record, but he says that he has a tough childhood and is working for insurance because of his experience at that time.
This time I'm asking you about the reason why Mr. Isao Mizutani has an insurance job.
Reasons for Isao Mizutani to work for insurance
Isao Mizutani: At that time, my dad was successful in the wholesale sales of air conditioners without a store. A lot of Nishikigoi were swimming in the pond of the garden. I think my father's car was a Cadillac. Employees and customers visited one after another day and night, and it was a lively and always bright and comfortable life.
A rich life, that was the beginning. But it didn't last long. The first oil shock of 1972. That simultaneous global recession robbed my father and all of my family of peace.
First of all, my father disappeared. And so many guests disappeared when they noticed.
"Who are you? You'll be a good adult. Ask my mom and sister." The last words my father left to me at the athletic meet.
One day, when I turned on the light in the pitch-black room, I heard a cry from the back of the messed up room. “I'm sorry. I have to cook rice.” A large tear overflowed from my mother's smile.
The company went bankrupt, the parents divorced, and the happiness of the family was crushed in an instant. The fragility of losing everything in one social situation. Fear of money, and anger. As a child, I was too helpless.
I think many times if I had insurance at that time and if I could be there 40 years ago. But because of that experience, I do this job, and I believe it is my job.
In other words, the job of insurance is destined and destined for me.
Mr. Mizutani may have become the Prudential of Japan Champion because of these harsh life experiences. I hope that the power of insurance will make a world where no one will lead an unhappy life.
