USHEALTH Advisors: Living a Mission of H.O.P.E.

Donations of Time, Labor and Money help Families in Local Communities

Helping Other People Everyday (HOPE) is more than a clever acronym for the staff, management and independently contracted Agents of USHEALTH Advisors (USHA).  For them, it is a mission that is lived on a daily basis; an organizational commitment to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

USHA’s mission of Helping Other People Everyday was initiated in 2010 by Troy McQuagge, who had just been named President of the then, fledgling company.  Today, USHEALTH Advisors and its parent company, USHEALTH Group, Inc. have experienced exponential growth; with McQuagge now serving as President and CEO of a corporation that executes at a level that is 10 times greater than when he began.  For their first HOPE project, McQuagge and other company leaders partnered with the Phoenix of New Orleans (PNOLA) organization in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Together, they took on the task of rebuilding homes in some of the hardest hit areas of the city.  The company volunteered hundreds of man-hours toward razing and restoration efforts to ensure safe and sound housing for residents of the lower Mid-City area of New Orleans.

USHA continued its mission of HOPE in 2011 when company leaders provided thousands of dollars’ worth of new shoes, clothing, baby formula and other needed supplies to The Crisis Nursery, a non-profit children’s shelter serving the Phoenix/Scottsdale metropolitan area.  “Whenever we gather our people together for a business meeting, we also try to give something back to our host city”; said USHA’s Sr. VP of Sales, Travis Yoder.  “We believe our business should be about more than just commerce.  We believe it should also be about people.”

When USHEALTH Advisors returned to Phoenix for its 2012 Leaders Meeting, the company once again fulfilled its mission of HOPE by presenting a check for more than $25,000 to HOPEKids Arizona; a non-profit support community for families of children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.  A year later, when the company’s leadership learned that HOPEKids had opened a chapter near its headquarters in North Texas; USHA donated another $45,000 plus. 


When asked to describe the reasons behind the company’s mission of HOPE, Mr. McQuagge said “Every company has a ‘soul’.  That ‘soul’ lies at the very core of who the company and its people really are.  Our people have made it their mission to help and serve others whenever and wherever they can.  For me, there is no more noble way to run a business or to live your life.”

USHEALTH Group’s Chief Marketing Officer Brian Clark added “The notion of helping and serving others isn’t something we take lightly.  We see it as our corporate responsibility and a personal mission.” 

As if to affirm Mr. Clark’s comments, these selfless acts of kindness by company leaders have clearly sparked a movement that has spread to USHEALTH Advisors Agents in local communities all across America. One example can be found in Brevard County Florida, where Division Leader Elizabeth Byrne and Agents in her local USHA sales office decided to embark on a mission of HOPE in their local community of Palm Bay.  Their research of local charities and service organizations led them to the Brevard County Homes for Warriors Project; a service project of the Space Coast Paratroopers Association.  The USHA “Byrne Team” worked with Homes for Warriors on demolition, repairs, and cleanup and sodding in order to prepare a new home that would be donated mortgage-free to a local Army Specialist and his family.

We talked a lot about our focus of helping other people every day and how we could accomplish that not just through offering our insurance products to potential clients but also through enriching our local community,” said Ms. Byrne.  “Our mission of HOPE and projects like this help us to appreciate that living a life of service far exceeds living a life of success.”

Similar conversations have taken place in other USHA sales offices, including the Richard Starke Division Office in Scottsdale, Arizona; where they set their sights on supporting the Wounded Warrior Project.  “We started talking about HOPE - Helping Other People Everyday,” said Mr. Starke.  “The discussion evolved and…we started talking about giving more back.  So we set up a fishbowl at the entrance of our meeting room so that Agents can freely donate to the Wounded Warrior Project.”  Each week, the Starke Division Office collects hundreds of dollars in donations for the Wounded Warrior Project.

“Living a mission of HOPE is something that we have been dedicated to fulfilling since the launch of USHEALTH Advisors”, said USHA Sr. VP of Marketing, Bill Shelton.  “This is who we are and what we do as individuals; and as a company.  For us, there is no other way to live.”

    I have been working at USHEALTH Advisors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It makes a big difference on what team you join. While we are all appointed to the same company, each leader's office has a culture of its own. Some are very aggressive, some are more laid back. Some are willing to invest in your start up and some leave that up to you as this is an independent sales position. Group overview meetings are the best use of time because we literally get hundreds of inquiries. This gives you the opportunity to meet us and evaluate the position and sit for a private interview if you wish to move forward. I would never say it's a waste of time, its the only way for you to get all details first and ask questions before deciding if it's a good fit for you. The culture in my office is quite unique as we provide a ramp up period that allows you acquire your license and several non-resident states with very little or no cost at all, besides your investment in time. Being self-employed as an independent contractor is not for everyone. If you sincerely want to make some changes in your life or wish to have freedom and independence with no limits, this may be just right for you. If you need a JOB with a paycheck yesterday, then this may not be a good fit.

    Cons

    100% upside potential, 100% risk if you don't posses the ability, skill and desire to be in business for yourself, with us as your partner.

    Advice to Management

    None really. My advice would be to my Associates. Be straight with people, bring out our Mission of HOPE and you will attract the right candidates for this position.
