Most Folks Want To “Live Life Fully Covered,” and In Control
No one wants to drive a car without a steering wheel. If your physician tells you to undergo surgery, you seek a second and even third opinion from other doctors before agreeing to go under the knife. When you live your life feeling you lack personal control what happens to you, each day is filled with dread over what can and will go wrong next. Which is no way to live life fully covered.
Now I can’t install a steering column or brakes in your car with any degree of certainty you could turn or stop your car when you wanted. And operate on you with any success of your living a long and healthy life when I’m done? Well, maybe if we’ve crashed on a deserted island, and if I don’t operate, you’ll die, and if I do operate, well you’ve got a shot.
My mission is to guarantee your being able to “Live life fully covered.” Using integrated insurance and income tax knowledge developed over 37 years I help my clients create programs to reach their financial goals. Programs which will put them in the ‘driver’s seat’ allowing them to have actual control over financial losses caused by insurable perils. With this sense of control, it is easier to recover from a loss. Without it you lack essential control, risking your and your family’s financial security.
