The Striving Years of a Businesswoman
Lin Jing (L), a senior business manager at China Life Insurance Zhangzhou Branch, holds her book My Striving Years. []


Lin Jing, a senior business manager of China Life Insurance, Zhangzhou Branch, published her book My Striving Years.

The book tells Lin's life experiences in detail. She was born in Zhangzhou, a beautiful old city in southern Fujian Province, and grew up in a happy family. Lin's parents, both public servants, gave her a strict family education.

She was the mother of twin daughters and had a regular job before she became an insurance saleswoman. Her choice was a significant turning point in her life. It was destined to be an adventure, but she never gave up.

She adhered to the service tenet that insurance is to help individuals throughout her career and had Churchill's words on her notes:

"If I had my way I would write the word 'insure' over every door of every cottage and upon the blotting book of every public man, because I am convinced that, for sacrifices that are conceivably small, families can be secured against catastrophes which otherwise would smash them forever."

Those who are suffering from illness or from an accident can better understand the statement. But at times, insurance agents have to keep a low profile in order to boost  promotion of their insurance products.

Lin worked more than ten hours a day and her sales performance was always amongst the top sellers. Her service tenet also earned her a good reputation.

Once, one of her customers was caught in an accident. She went to the hospital and found that the medical equipment there was inadequate, so she helped her customer transfer to another hospital right away. When her customer was getting better, she promptly made a claim settlement.

Lin's after-sale service was recognized and applauded by many customers. Some of her customers volunteered to advertise for her.

While being devoted to her career, Lin makes a lot of effort to balance her family life and career. She is a role model for modern women in the new era.
