    We, Dr. Barb LoFrisco and Dr. Mary Bryant, have a well-appointed office available within our office suite. Our suite of offices is located within the Grand Office Plaza, a well-maintained, two-story Medical Arts and Professional building in the Carrollwood area of Tampa. Our building is professionally managed by Ciminelli on-site, and includes utilities, nightly professional cleaning and maintenance of common areas, professional signage, and even a Christmas tree!

    Our suite is comprised of three individual offices and waiting room, and we have strived to create an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere for all who enter! We are looking for one more person to share our suite and occupy the third office.

    Both of us are experienced licensed marriage and family therapists and licensed mental health counselors. We treat individuals and couples; however, neither of us treats children. Therefore, our suite is not set up for children. And, although we carry the required liability insurance, we would ask you to carry your own general liability insurance. 

    If you are looking for office space and are in need of a quiet, peaceful, and elegantly appointed office, please contact us at 813-404-9215 (Barb) or 813-240-4537 (Mary).  We’d love to meet you!

    Office photos and more details are attached.

    Best Regards,
    Barb and Mary

    At Webb Insurance Group, you will have the freedom and encouragement to make a valuable contribution to the Organization. You will be encouraged to present new ideas and to find creative ways to do your job better. We do not believe in the typical "big company" culture where employees are placed into a box and only given a very narrow set of responsibilities. We are committed to both our business and our employees and dedicated to employee development. All of our team members have the opportunity to see the tangible results of their contributions to the company. We believe in giving you more life and more opportunity through your career with us.

    As a Business Development Manager, you will be responsible for helping our business grow through developing relationships in the community. This includes actively prospecting and leading associated business development activities to create revenue opportunities for Webb Insurance Group. The business development manager works solely on cultivating new business relationships.

    Healthy relationships with clients require socialization. So from simple chats on the phone to lunches and events, the business development manager must be sure to keep their prospects and clients happy. Of course, as with all office jobs, documentation is also a big part of the work. The business development manager is expected to write reports and provide feedback to management about what is and is not working. Because networking is critical in this position, business development managers must have reliable transportation to travel to business meetings and local events.

    What you will do:
      -  Attend community events to meet / cultivate relationships with prospective clients
      -  Proactively arrange time to achieve optimum face-face opportunities
      -  Overcome prospective client objections
      -  Collaboratively sell with inside sales advisors
      -  Track daily, weekly, and monthly referral activity and performance measurements against assigned goals and expectations.
      -  Protect the organization's value by keeping information confidential
      -  Update job knowledge by participating in educational opportunities; reading professional publications; maintaining personal networks; participating in professional organizations
      -  Locate potential business deals by contacting potential partners; discovering and exploring opportunities

    The business development manager has three primary responsibilities:
        •    Identify new sales leads
        •    Introduce the leads to inside advisors to discuss products and/or services
        •    Maintain fruitful relationships with community partners

    When it comes to generating leads, day-to-day duties typically include:
        •    Researching organizations and individuals online (especially on social media) to identify new leads and potential new markets
        •    Contacting potential clients via email or phone to establish rapport and set up meetings
        •    Planning and overseeing new marketing initiatives
        •    Attending meetings and industry events

    Our agency has been offering Disability Insurance to existing clients and new clients for more than a decade.  Some of the MOST common questions are “Why do I need it?”, “I’m healthy” or “I’m only 28”.

    There are many reasons to have Disability Insurance but each reason is specific to the individual’s situation. The question is, is it a right fit for you?  No two people have the same life circumstances or concerns, therefore, we cannot show a solution until we have determined the potential issue, but rest assured the need exists for everybody.  That’s what we determine when we learn more about you.

    Most people only understand the basics of insurance when we agree to meet but the important thing is that they are willing to listen.  That is the perfect prospect 

    Here is an overly simple way to explain how disability insurance works.  Let’s say Jessica has just been hired at a new job.  She is offered two compensation options.

    Option A –
    $3,000 per month as long as you work every day
    $0 if you can’t work. 

    Option B –
    $2,900 per month as long as you work every day
    $2,000 per month if you are sick or hurt and can’t work.

    If you would like to learn more with no obligation, we’ll even buy the coffee.
