We have a serious problem. I know you are going to find this hard to believe, but Insurance is boring! That's right, I've said it!
Here's have a quick story for you. On a monthly basis, I make my staff take continuing Education training to stay current with the latest and greatest in the insurance industry. I even take it myself because I feel responsible to make sure you are completely protected.
Zzz What's that? Sorry, I already fell asleep. Let's continue…
In order to stay current, from time to time we take continuing Ed courses. Last week I was taking an online course and the topic was a coverage called Ordinance or Law. I'm not going to bore you (yet) about what this coverage means, but as I was taking the course, I was sitting there worried about my clients that don't have any or enough Ordinance or Law coverage and how these customers may not be fully protected in the event of a claim.
I sent an email to 20 of my clients that I thought needed this coverage added to their policy. Unfortunately, nobody responded and only 3 actually clicked on the email! It was then I realized how boring insurance is! Nobody really wants to learn this stuff, but they certainly want to be protected when there is a loss.
I spoke to one of my clients that I am friendly with and he referred to my emails as "More Insurance Crap"! So that was the inspiration for this blog. I know insurance is really boring. I've written hundreds of emails and blogs about coverages but they are hardly read. I completely understand. What I will endeavor to do is write about these important coverages in the most entertaining fashion I can. I'll do it in the form of a story. I have been in the insurance industry for over 30 years and have seen virtually every type of claim and I have a story for almost every kind of loss imaginable.
I'd love to hear what you think about it. Drop me an email at [email protected]
Who knows, I may even make insurance fun!! (Probably not)
