Liz Martin: Where’d She Go to School?

The Path to Entrepreneurship

After graduation, Liz’s father told her that she was needed to help run the Martin family business, Martin’s Hatchery and Poultry Farm. She applied her business acumen to cattle, chickens and horses. Still, after eight years of working together, she longed to be in the insurance industry. She liked the industry, the growth potential and working with people.

How Liz Martin Achieved Her Dream

She left Martin’s Hatchery and Poultry Farm and then took over Wilbur Martin’s insurance agency. She purchased the business from her uncle by paying him her commissions for three years. After the long struggle, she became the fourth-generation owner of Martin Insurance Agency. Then, she transformed it from a one-man-shop that operated out of her uncle’s home into a commercial space.

By 1996, Liz had purchased three other insurance agencies. Now she employs 12 people, carries a full line of insurance products and has an office dog named Alice. Her family-owned business has been running for more than 100 years.
