"The insurance industry has barely evolved since Benjamin Franklin introduced the concept in the late 1700s."

Ouch. So what can we do about it? Car and home insurers are adapting by using big data and microinsurance to better meet consumer needs. Could this be our future, too?

Is cash value life insurance a more secure choice than traditional asset allocation?
Asset allocation is supposed to ensure that while a downturn may affect one part of a client's portfolio, it doesn't necessarily affect others. But is that what really happens?

Not all the time: "In fact, outside of municipal bonds and few select categories, investors would have performed better by either 1) having cash value in a whole life or universal life policy or 2) having an annuity product that guaranteed they could not lose money."

Find out why in the article below!

*Building relationships is the key to expanding your network on LinkedIn. *We've all met people at conferences, retreats, and trade shows...and then never spoken to them again.

More than half of the planet is on social media. If you're still not sure it's worth the time, consider what you're leaving on the table by ignoring it. According to the director of Google Canada, 42% of users learn about products and services from their Twitter followers. 

You don't need to sell on social media. You just need to be found.
