Our idea is to provide another avenue that we can add more value to our community and to cover more ground than we’re often able to do in a text-based blog post. The Insurance Pro Blog was originally launched in the summer of 2011 as a way to debunk myths and false teachings offered by much of the financial press as it relates to life insurance. Our goal with the Financial Procast is to add on to the conversation regarding all things life insurance, annuities, and finance but also to open up our conversation to other financial related topics. In writing articles or blog posts, sometimes it can be difficult to help you connect all the dots. What do we mean? Well…an article or post is typically limited to an isolated topic, just because nobody wants to read a whole book every time they visit our site. But our hope with the podcast is that we can take some of the concepts we discuss and tie them in to “real life” scenarios that will help paint a clearer picture to our audience. Our sincere hope is that you will listen regularly, make suggestions, and send us your questions. We are open to discussing any topic related to personal finance and welcome our audience to participate in the discussion. Your comments and questions will help us cover what’s most relevant and interesting to you, so please email us to give us feedback!

I love this Podcast!!
As a relatively new Life/Annuity agent and current CFP student I have to say “Thanks fellas! I really appreciate the product that you guys turn out every week.” I eagerly await every Weds when the new podcast is released. It is well and truly like a hour's worth of CE course every week.
I like it!
