Two years later he met his future wife Debbie from South Dakota.
From the start Debbie became his confidant and best friend. They married in 1983 and had three sons: Andrew, Benjamin, and Samuel. As they built their business, they viewed themselves as farmers planting seeds. Harvest will come later if they build a solid foundation based on trust and relationships.
In 1984 after their first son Andrew was born Paul and Debbie were building the practice. Paul was able to help a South Dakota farmer with his continuity plan to protect a 7,500-acre family farm. That same year Franklin Life Insurance celebrated its hundred-year anniversary featuring the Hadel Family in trade journal magazines throughout the industry showcasing their success. Paul achieved success with every challenge Franklin Life Insurance company put in front of him.
