In 2013, I found myself exploring insurance and benefit options for my employees, within my broadcast company. I wanted to do something to help the people that meant so much to the success of our effort. The more I looked, however, the more confused and frustrated I got.
Fast forward to 2014, I had decided I needed to learn things for myself. I wanted to know what the agents walking in my door knew. Or at least enough to know what to ask. That’s when I decided to go to school to learn all I could about insurance and the employee benefits industry. It was quite an eye opener.
I quickly realized that there was a whole world of options available to business owners like me, and my employees, that I had no idea about. I also knew, because of the relationships I built over years, that my advertising clients didn’t know either. I, like so many, thought it was major medical group plans or nothing. Going that route would have been a financial back breaker for my business at that time. But there was so much more out there.
Once I started to learn the broader strategies that could be put in place, I went and got my license and started helping friends with businesses translate and navigate the brier’s patch that is insurance. I had a chip on my shoulder to advocate for people in the way that I couldn’t find anyone to do for me.
By the Summer of 2015 I realized that this was something I felt passion for and decided to leave 20+ years of broadcasting and publishing businesses behind. I have been advising, consulting and assisting businesses and non-profits in this arena ever since. And I have never lost that chip on my shoulder either.
My Mission is to provide personalized needs assessment, education, ease of administration, cost savings and follow through presence.
