Empowering Small Practices To Deliver The Best Care




The transition from the football field to the farmyard might not be everyone’s idea of an upgrade, but it definitely was for Jason. “My agent told me, ‘You’re making the biggest mistake of your life,’” Jason remembers. “I looked right back at him and said, ‘No, I am not.’” After leaving football, he moved to North Carolina to start the First Fruits Farm. It has that name because he donates the first fruits of every harvest to food pantries. In his first harvest, he yielded over 100,000 pounds of sweet potatoes that went to feed hungry families. “When I think about a life of greatness,” Jason says, “I think about a life of service.” Talk about caring about the one! Jason turned down the glory of the gridiron for the glory of being able to help as many people as he could. He’s an example to all of us and a reminder of just what an impact you can make if you devote your life to assisting those in need.

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill

One of the best aspects of working at AZCOMP is that we live our core values. Many companies pick their values from a list of clichés and adopt them because they feel like they are supposed to. We couldn’t have a more opposite approach. Our values are personal to us, and we are encouraged to find examples of their meaning both inside and outside of work. I recently came across a story that perfectly illustrates our third core value: We care about the one. This value is all about being in the moment and providing help to whoever needs it. The client we are working with now needs our full attention, so we make sure we address all their needs. Being there for people is what customer service is all about. And while the value was created with our clients in mind, I find it applies equally to the way we care about each other and the community, as well. I was watching the news recently and came across the story of a man who lives his life caring about the one, even though he could have easily coasted to a life of leisure based on his incredible talent. For seven years, Jason Brown (no relation, I swear) was a center in the NFL. He made millions of dollars and had a career that millions of little boys grow up dreaming about. However, that wasn’t enough for Jason. In 2011, he decided to retire from the NFL and pursue his passion for helping others by becoming … wait for it … a farmer!

I’d like to close with a message from Jason Brown that applies to every aspect of our lives:

“Never stop giving. Never stop loving. Never stop growing.”
