Coming Soon To A Need Near You.

It's been too long.

After over nine years in the Mortgage Industry, I had to hang up my boots when the company I worked with went out of biz.  At the time, I didn't quite know what to do with myself.  I thought I'd be there for the rest of my life.  That was in 2009.  Joining the circus wasn't a viable option, though I got along quite nicely with the clowns.

I then took a position in the Insurance Industry.  Shortly thereafter, I got licensed.  I've been doing that particular gig for almost three years now.   My problem with that gig was quite simple ... I couldn't have my own book of business.

Then a thing called opportunity knocked.  I answered the door, still wearing my boxers but freshly showered, and decided that opening that door was a pretty good idea. 

So come on in ...

Very soon, I'll be writing about Insurance (Home, Auto, & Life) the way I wrote about Mortgages.  The challenge is always making those posts edible for the reading eye.  I think I can handle that.

Home

Auto

Life

And I hope you don't ever need any of them, but the truth is ... you eventually will.  Statistically speaking.

Insurance is a promise.  An intangible thing you pay for and can't hold in your hand.  It's only an insurance card or a declarations page.  Unless you know the guy offering it.

A promise is a promise. 

I aim to keep promises and sell you what you need, not what you don't.

The flip side is a good public adjuster, in a time that hopefully never gets used buy you know statistically will.

I think you are the kind of person who will do good business (in every sense of the phrase) in whatever you work at.   A trusted insurance person is a huge asset to all of us.

Good Luck...I am sure you will have a successful career! Just remember to be a chameleon with the clients...ie: sometimes you have to change to match up with the client...

Mike - Being a chameleon, while easy, isn't exactly my forte.  However, I'm a open man.

Kathy - Why thank you, Kathy.  Your check is in the mail ;)

Winston - Relevant issue, for sure.

Mona - I like the soap from local Farmer's Markets.  It's fresh and real.  And I would love the chance to talk to your Mother.  Wisdom is asking questions of folks who did it before you did.

Laura - I don't have the committment that I should have.  To write a book, that is.

Jason, One of those things we never want to have to call in, but we do have to periodically.  Hail storms and mice have been the biggies for us.  Who'd think mice would gnaw on a seat belt??

Jason, my mother is on ActiveRain and I will let her know you'll be getting in touch.  I'll email you her contact info.  I think she'll enjoy the conversations and I know she's given me some great insight when helping the buyers get their homeowners insurance...what to look for, what to watch out for, etc.

Hi Jason - Best of luck with your new direction - you have the brains, character and talent be successful at anything you set as a goal. And it restores my faith in the system that even serious troublemakers like you can be rehabilitated and make a positive contribution to society.

I know that insurance can be a very lucrative business.  Lucrative derived from lucre.  Remember greed is the downfall of many.  I know that won't happen to you.

J, sounds like you have a little fire left, eh? Can't wait to see how you mix insurance, politics and football in a blog. Go Lions!

A long, long time ago (probably about ten years, I still can't believe people actually believed me). I subscribed to a cool dude from Illinois, I think, who wrote about insurance.  And, I really enjoyed his posts. 

So, now, another cool dude will write about it instead.  Thanks, Jason.  I am glad you are going to pick up the slack.  There is far too little of that type of information here that I am aware of. at least.

Jason- i have one thing to say to you ( well I probably won't stop there) but whatever you do, whatever business you're in, never stop writing.  there are some people who make reading fun and you're one of them.  I can never understand insurance but I know I'm going to have fun trying!

Thanks Kathy.  I won't.  And you will have somebody to refer to if they are relocating from South Florida to NC:)

Suzanne - I hope to fit the bill.

Eric - A LOT of fire, my man.

Ron - Too wise for that at this point in my life.  At least I hope so.

Jason:  I apologize, my friend ... I somehow missed this announcement last week.  Saw a reference to your new gig on Mona Gersky's post and had to stop over to wish you the best of luck in your new venture.  Although I have to say, the comment about the clowns ... got me chuckling a bit.  Some might even say you were already working with the clowns when working at a mortgage company ... and I believe I have the right to say that too!!

Anyway ... best of luck, my friend!  I know you'll be a huge success ... and I'll learn alot from you ...
