Who's behind Agency Owners Academy?

Hi. I'm Jim Schubert. Like you, I'm an insurance agency owner. And like many others, I didn't originally seek this industry out for a career. I fell into it and then learned from the ground up.


I started out as a high school English teacher in Boston, which had always been my dream. But when I realized my students weren't just going to stand on their desks chanting "Oh Captain, my Captain!", I decided to head back home to Atlanta and give it a shot working in my father's insurance agency.

How I Earned My Stripes

Over the past 15 years, I've learned what it takes to run a successful insurance agency. My insurance journey has taken me through almost every role in our company. And I'm now excited to be the owner of Southern States Insurance, Inc.


We've grown into one of the largest privately held independent insurance agencies in Georgia with several office locations around the state and a large team of employees whom we always refer to as "our family".

So, Are You Ready To Grow?

I'm still a teacher at heart. And I love sharing what I've learned about how to run a successful insurance agency. Not just from what my father taught me. But from my own successes and mistakes. And from what other insurance agency owners continue to teach me every day.


I'd love to have you join me and the Agency Owners Academy community in learning how to take your insurance agency to the NEXT LEVEL.

Are you ready?


Yes. Help Me Grow My Agency!
