Staying Committed to Learning the Adjusting Industry with Paul Wilcox

Paul Wilcox graduated high school in 2015. In 2016, Hurricane Matthew devastated the southeast region of the United States, affecting millions of homeowners in its wake. Shortly after, Paul began researching and educating himself on becoming an insurance adjuster through various trainings, resources, and participating in dozens of ride-alongs with experienced insurance adjusters. Since then, he has obtained his adjusting license and has helped countless homeowners rebuild their lives following the Hurricane Harvey catastrophe.

Today, Paul shares what inspired him to become an independent insurance adjuster and the impact that being dedicated to learning the industry has had on his career. He explains the similarities between being an adjuster and being an entrepreneur the importance of gaining industry experience before handling your first claim, and the challenges he faced as a new adjuster. He also shares how adjusting claims through Hurricane Harvey opened new doors of opportunity for his career, what the Texas Prep Program is, and the similarities and differences between being an adjuster and working with the program.

“If you can get really good at one thing, then you can get really good at everything else.” - Paul Wilcox
