The Ontario Broker - December 2019 - 30

A DAY IN THE LIFE
DAWN MCCARTHY-ACCOUNT MANAGER
DG SMITH INSURANCE BROKERS

5:00AM

Alarm goes off, I get up and get ready for the gym where I meet my girlfriend and
trainer. We work out until 6:15.
7:00-7:30AM

I arrive at the office after my five-minute commute, which turns into seven minutes if
I hit all the lights. I start a pot of coffee, log into our BMS and start my day.
8:00AM

I work through my emails and respond to client questions.
9:00AM

D

awn's been with DG
Smith in Uxbridge
her entire career as
a broker. Previously
she ran a home daycare for 13
years. The brokerage's owners
were clients of hers who thought
she'd be a great fit.
Dawn started as a Receptionist/
TSR in 2009 and got her RIBO
license a year later. At the time,
owner Kevin Smith was the
only Commercial broker and
needed help-he brought her
on as an assistant and mentee.
"If you're looking to branch
out into Commercial lines,
find a Commercial broker to
mentor you."
Dawn says the best part about
her job is getting to know her
clients. Here is a day in her life.

I spend time trying to find different markets-I have a client who's going to
become an Amazon Flex driver, which is a new one for me.
11:00AM

I attend a Cannabis Cover masterclass and put together an outline of what I
learned to share with the team.
11:30AM-12:30PM

I drive the five minutes home to have a salad and typically put something in the
crock pot for dinner.
1:00PM

I look into travel insurance quotes for a client whose parents are visiting Canada
from India, and find quotes for a client who's spraying pesticides at golf courses.
3:00PM

I work on renewals to review with a client.
4:00-7:00PM

I head out for the day to pick up my twin two-year-old grandsons from daycare,
who I have until 6 or 7 three nights a week, which is always a blast. Sometimes we
go to the park or to Canadian Tire where they get to pick out new Hot Wheels cars.
7:00PM

Dinnertime-that pork tenderloin I started in the slow cooker at lunch.
9:30PM

Off to bed-I watch TV before falling asleep. My husband and I are currently
loving The Walking Dead and the second season of Jack Ryan.
