So I stumbled onto this article with the headline “Google’s entry into insurance should frighten agents” I am not sure that one statement could be further from the truth.
Disclaimer; I was not in the room when these comments were made. Like most articles there is limited space available and the reporter must choose what to write.
FACT: The insurance industry is old and not nearly as technically advanced as most of the places you spend money. Think of Amazon and Zappos
FACT: Google has a lot of money and a lot of smart people.
So like a lot of people, a phone book shows up in a plastic bag in my driveway. Seems like it happens a couple of times each year. For whatever reason this weekend I decided to open the bag. Yes, it is smaller than I remembered. It is also apparently very eco-friendly addition produced by Hibu .
Now, I am sure somebody keeps them and uses it a few times a year. My household does not, fortunately today is garbage day so it is now in the recycle bin. I did learn about www.yellowpagesoptout.com and have now opted out of the three available books. Now what?
