The last twenty years of my life have been devoted to serving clients as their insurance agent. I have worked to match needs and wants with the financial budgets that were before us and available at the time. However, I have come to realize and witness that the industry I love, worked in, and was educated in is one of many industries that are causing economic stress in the family today. The vision I have for this book is to help equip you as a consumer before purchasing any and all types of insurance. I dont intend to make you an expert, but I do intend on sharing with you the knowledge I have gained over the last twenty-four years. My intention for the book is to be an easy read with thought-provoking questions. I have included the questions for the purpose of helping you ask the right questions. When purchasing insurance, you have to ask questions and not feel like the questions you are asking are dumb or do not apply. Further, my vision for the book is that it will help consumers young and old be confident when making their insurance purchases. Also, I have shared some hypothetical situations that are simple, to the point, and in some case real life. Further, I hope the book will convey a real-life message to readers before something actually happens to them. Hopefully this book might create a picture in their minds that could save their lives or save them time and money. You as a consumer are purchasing an intangible product when you buy insurance. Insurance is a product that cannot be touched or seen. Another goal for this book is to give the consumer some tangible information to make the right decisions when purchasing insurance from their local insurance agent or buying online from someone he or she does not know and cannot see. Most importantly, my intentions for the book are to help the insurance consumer be most informed and knowledgeable, for knowledge is power.
