Pride and standards

Overwhelmed to see the amount of pride a nation can show.  Refreshing to see a positive event gain  this much exposure.  At the same time it is tremendous to see standards being upheld and principles as well as tradition being maintained despite any outside pressures.

If an entire nation can do this for a wedding I would hope individuals could keep their standards high and not compromise their principles.  Let’s set a standard of how we want to be treated and keep it.  Let’s not pander to promises of lower prices and tons  of discounts.  Set your own standard for what you want and what is important to you and stick to it, imagine the amount of mail you will get to ignore.

Appreciate your agent…if

Yes I believe the agent, me, works for you, the customer.  This is no different than any time you are spending money on a product or service.  This relationship tends to go better if you appreciate the person providing the product or service.  How do you do this?

UPDATE 5/19/2015

How do you “appreciate”‘ the person you are paying for a service?

  1. Give them a chance to work for you.
  2. Rather than carrying over the poor previous experience you may have had give your potential new agent the chance to shine without thinking he or she is as bad as the last one.

DISCLAIMER

My ideas are just that, see the previous post on believing in accountability.  Some are fact based some are based on the law some are my own logic.  Choosing to use them or not to use them is up to you not me.  At the end of it all these are your insurance policies I might just help you buy them smarter.

5/11/2015 Update

All of the above remains true.  I would adjust it to say, most are fact based and all are then complimented by;

1. An understanding of the law

2. An understanding of the industry

Ideas and the reason I write

I believe in accountability.  I also know that there are a lot of pretty simple ideas and concepts that if followed can really impact your rates, your coverage and maybe your impression of insurance.  Hey if you have to pay for it it might as well be what you want.

5/11/2015  Not much has changed since the original posting date.  Still, believe and think exactly as written above.  The difference is that the industry has shifted and I now have more ways to help improve your coverage and impression of insurance.
