Broker Check

Blog

For a while now, we've been trying to "figure out" how to reach our clients on a more personal level.  Posting articles and videos, written by other groups or websites is nice and all, but it doesn't really allow our current or potential clients to get to know us as individuals.  So, we thought we'd start a blog and see how that works out.  As we post, we'd love to hear your feedback.  You can let us know how we're doing, if we are making sense of things and if you enjoy the topics we choose to write on.  We hope you enjoy the ride!

Have you ever gotten home from the grocery store and realized you didn't get one single thing on your "list"? You went in for the basics, eggs and milk, and walked out with literally every other thing they had to offer. I'm betting...

Have you ever taken an inventory of your things and suddenly realized that you might have a "spending problem"??? It's easy to let items slip into our homes, lives, etc. that we don't really even like, much less need. But we tell...

Well, it's March so I figured it was time to give you an update on my financial goals for 2018. Back in January, I shared three areas where we wanted/needed to start saving money. A few things have changed, but for the most part, I've...

I remember that day very clearly. Our son, Jackson, was sick and needed to see his pediatrician. It was a Saturday morning and they only stayed open until noon. I woke up not feeling well. I would have had my husband, J.C., take him...

How cliche is the title of this blog post? I'm actually surprised you are even reading. It seems like everyone sets New Year's resolutions but nobody ever sticks to them. I guess if I'm going to put myself out there, I will check in a...

I remember those times when I was counting the hours, no more like the seconds, until my paycheck hit my bank account. Living on hope and a prayer, thankfully my paycheck always showed up just in time that I didn’t have but one...

Can you believe that? Christmas is going to be on December 25th this year. Are you surprised? Probably not; however, on the other hand, the "expenses" of Christmas always tend to sneak up on some people. How could a holiday that is on...

I started my career in life insurance on a part-time basis while still in college, in 1959. There were seven children in our family and Tommy, one of my younger brothers, said he needed some life insurance. He was a high school student...

In 2013, my dad lost his battle with cancer. Throughout the years, my dad and I always talked about his finances and such. He had also mentioned to me that he no longer had a life insurance policy, something he had let go of when he...

Do you feel pushed, I mean really pushed by your schedule, your decisions, everything you have to do? I have to admit, I used to think it was just me, but it's not. It is everyone around me, no matter the age, place, or time of life....

Calling all stay-at-home/work-from-home moms! More than likely, life insurance isn’t front and center on your brain. You’ve got other things to think about. A teething baby, a school project that’s due tomorrow,...

Did you know that there is no better way to show your family you love them than to have a secure financial plan in place? No one likes to think about this, but the longer we live, the closer we are to death. So, why would you want to...

Ever heard of the phrase, "Monkey See, Monkey Do"? Well, that pretty much sums up kids. They copy everything their parents, sibling and friends do, whether the behavior be good or bad. So the question is, are you setting good examples...

What keeps you up at night? Okay, let’s all admit it, we all have those times when we can’t sleep and it is usually the thought of some impending doom or emergency. Last week I was visiting with our fire chief and the...

You know, you say the words life insurance and instantly many people put a stop sign up in their mind. Who in the world wants to talk about dying?! Really, who does, but it is going to happen, right? When I sold my first life policy...

Spring break has come and gone. If you were to say that you aren’t looking forward to summer break, you’d probably be telling a little white lie. Am I right? If I was a betting woman, I’d venture to say that most...

For some reason, people freak out if you ask them if they have life insurance on their children. Why would you have insurance on your healthy child? Well, let me tell you why. Life as you know it can change in a heartbeat. But did you...
