Austin MuddSales Team Hometown: Springfield, IL In my spare time: I enjoy all kinds of sports; play basketball in the Springfield Park District League, play softball spring-fall, and golf any time the weather permits. A perfect day to me: Waking up without an alarm going off and enjoying the morning with a run or bike ride. Next would be a brunch/Bloody Mary bar to refuel. I would then continue to enjoy the weather either on the lake or on a golf course. I would wrap my day grilling out at home with a Cardinals game on TV. Words to live by: “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” – Jon Wooden “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill Insurance Industry Involvement: Member of the Independent Insurance Agents of Illinois Young Agents Network College: Illinois State University Favorite Song: “Semi-Charmed Life,” Third Eye Blind Favorite Movie: Dumb and Dumber Why TROXELL: I have grown up around TROXELL and have seen first hand the way TROXELL treats its employees is second to none. It has grown as a community leader without sacrificing any quality, so when presented with the opportunity to start my own career here, I couldn’t pass it up.
