Insurance Advisors Have the Best Jobs and A Lot To Be Thankful For

It's the season where we stop the hectic movement for a day or two and give thanks, and we decided to take a few moments with our agencies to do just that. Starting Thanksgiving off a little early, we wanted to share some thoughts from us, and our members, about why we're so thankful to be doing what we're all doing. We love what we do, and we love having the privilege of working with people who are so committed to their businesses, their teams, and their clients.

Gifts From Dad

December 09, 2013

We don't typically write personal posts here. However, we hope you will allow us this exception.

I lost my father recently, and while there is never an easy time to lose a loved one, this time of year seems particularly difficult. But, when I think about my dad, if we had to lose him, this season of giving is entirely appropriate. I wanted to share with you some of the gifts I have received from my dad, and I encourage you to take the time to reflect on those who have brought (and continue to bring) similar gifts to you.

Work Hard, Play Hard

Wow, another BGNLive (BGNL) has come and gone. While I’m sure that everyone who attended has their own opinion, I felt that this was the most productive and enjoyable session to date.

I started the conference by reminding everyone that BGNL is primarily about two things; learning and networking. For those who haven’t attended a BGNL, this is not your typical “mini vacation” type of conference. There is real work involved. Homework assignments were sent out ahead of time with the expectation that everyone comes prepared to work - for their own benefit, the benefit of everyone back home, as well as the benefit of everyone in the room at BGNL.
