Here’s the fourth thing you never knew about insurance:
4. I hate insurance too.
Yeah, I know, I’m the insurance guy. But I hate insurance just as much as my customers do. I’m not in this because I love the way the insurance industry works – completely non-relational, preying on lack of education, dragging feet to pay claims, offering ‘teaser rates’ to entice new customers and then hiking up the prices when they settle in.
I’m in this because I like building relationships with people. (I’ve met some amazing people through my work.) I want to educate and inform my customers about insurance, so that they’re not intimidated into accepting whatever an overbearing insurance salesman or a large corporation tells them they should buy.
It’s because I hate the way that the insurance industry works that I’m in insurance.
