Frank Monte is the owner of Bond Auto Glass, and of Centurion Holdings, a marketing firm in Wesley Chapel, Florida.
He is a high school dropout who later went back to school to earn his GED. Frank Monte of Centurion has started several businesses during the course of his career, including a real estate company. “I started a real estate company at the worst possible time, just before the housing market crashed,” he recalls. “I created a niche following the housing crisis and helped hundreds of homeowners avoid the inevitable.” This took the form of Homeowner Answers, LLC, “the answer for many homeowners struggling to survive.”
Next, he went into the insurance arena. “I loved the concept of Indexed Universal Life or IUL insurance policies because my clients’ money was virtually never at risk,” he says. “It wasn’t tied to the stock market and it had two other major components I fell in love with. Living Benefits, and LIBOR, or Lifetime Income Benefit Rider.” It was a combination of flexibility and investment growth that was a great fit for many of his clients. “If you, God forbid, didn’t have a major life changing event where you did cash in your life policy, you could simply turn on your income stream and receive a check every month for the rest of your natural life.”
Today, Frank Monte of Centurion is in college completing work on his undergraduate degree. But it doesn’t stop there; once he has his degree he intends to go on to law school and become a lawyer. “You could be a high school drop-out born and raised in poverty and do anything you set your mind to.”
