OWNSURANCE - Month 1 - Blog Banner.jpg

I’m Patrick Reid, the proud owner of OWNSURANCE.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

I started out gaining valuable logistics and architectural technology experience, which enhanced my decision-making skills and leadership abilities.

Consequently, I moved into the financial services industry and focused on Individual Accident and Disability files. It allowed me to assist individuals in high-risk employment environments, which was fulfilling.

However, after a few years, I decided to broaden my horizons, as I endeavored to help my business network excel. I felt that all too often they didn’t access tools designed to protect their hard work, equity, and legacy, and I was determined to do something about it.

It inspired me to launch a financial planning company specializing in empowering entrepreneurs with niche solutions. It included offering life insurance, strategic investment, and tax-planning vehicles all under one roof.

I’ve come a long way since starting out as a sole proprietor five years ago, where I initially developed the building blocks of my business. Once I got to know my clients, their enterprises, and their visions for the next generation(s), I assembled a dream team.

My team has a combined expertise of forty years which has enabled me to expand vertically to support budding business owners and established entrepreneurs. I’ve also created corporate affiliations with a consortium of ancillary product and service vendors.

My strategic collaborations have enhanced my offerings. I work with discipline, and as an individual, I believe what sets me apart from the others is my intense focus on getting a job done right.

I also attribute my success to my customer service, as I’m very sociable and genuine in my approach. As a result, I love witnessing clients become successful after executing my recommendations.

Having the opportunity to express my creativity daily and showing my family a blueprint to prosper is also rewarding. Therefore, when my firstborn joined my team while still being a full-time student, it filled me with immense satisfaction.

When I’m not consulting people, I’m a devoted husband and father. I’m also passionate about soccer (I used to play professionally and trained with the squad that qualified for the World Cup in 1998)

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
