Today we’d like to introduce you to Ron Leonard.
Ron, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was in the Nuclear Industry for 25 years and in 2015 my family had a COBRA health plan from my previous employer paying $2,400 per month and I was searching for better options for my family’s health insurance. I stumbled upon USHEALTH Advisors on a beach in Brevard County Florida one day and was able to qualify for a better and more affordable health plan dropping my monthly premium to $1,000 per month. Not cheap and not too expensive for health, dental and vision for a family of four. I was intrigued and very curious. I had no experience or education at all in the health insurance industry. I knew I could learn and do anything I set my mind to. The insurance industry is not an easy line of work and the income generated is residual meaning you can develop an income while you sleep (Warren Buffett quote).
I interviewed with the agent, Don Dente who is now my boss, who helped me get this new health plan for my family and after I learned about the income-earning potential, I obtained my health insurance license in early 2016 and after a month I left my high paying and very specialized job in the Nuclear Industry and started my new career in the health insurance industry. I spent 2016 learning the business like the back of my hand and in December 2016, I moved to Miami Florida where I did not know one person and I opened my own Health Insurance Office. I had a new company with one person and that person was me. My annual sales volume was about $2M. 3 years later, with the enormous help of BNI, Business Networking International, 80-90 hour work weeks and working seven days a week, I now have an office of 90 agents with an annual sales volume of $20M. I’m not done yet. Not even close.
Has it been a smooth road?
Not a smooth road at all. The first five years of building any business are the hardest. Most people don’t have what it takes. I’m in the people business and people can sometimes be hard to deal with. 80-90 hour, seven days a week. All in, all the time.
We’d love to hear more about your work.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I’ve lived in 16 different states and many of the US’s largest cities from Boston, to Los Angeles, to Atlanta and now Miami, Miami is much like NYC. I micro version of NYC. When you factor everything, it’s truly the greatest and most diverse city in the United States. This makes it an amazing place to work and live.
I do wish Miami had a public transportation system like the cities its a size like Boston, NYC, Chicago, LA and Atlanta.
