Reading, PA – March 6, 2019: Bradley Shear, Client Services Associate of Shear Capital Group, LLC, has received the Good Life Insurance Associates 2018 Young Guns Award.

The prestigious Young Guns Award is presented to a new agent within their first 24 months with Good Life Insurance, is under 30 years of age, and submits more than 30 cases during the calendar year.

“I am very honored to receive this award. It’s especially meaningful because I am learning from two of my role models: my father, Howard, and my grandfather, Sam. My grandfather started our family business in the 1950s and taught my father everything he knows about the business. Both of them are now passing their knowledge onto me. I am happy to be making them proud as I begin my career, following in their footsteps,” said Shear.

“Since day one Brad has shown consistent drive and focus within his newly formed insurance practice. He clearly holds the qualities necessary to be a top performer within the industry which include honesty, integrity, willingness to consistently learn more, and always putting the client first. To be his first year in the business and achieve this level of success proves that he is liked and trusted within his community,” said Fred Claghorn III CFP®, Director of Insurance Good Life Companies.

Shear is a Pittsburgh native and graduated with honors from Kent State University in 2017 with a degree in finance. He has a strong passion for meeting with his clients and educating them about the business and then different facets of financial planning. His father, Howard, is the President and Senior Financial Advisor of Shear Capital Group and the company’s success is due solely from referrals. Shear currently resides in Pittsburgh.
