What is your favorite part of your job?

Working with both the Employer and Employees of small Businesses in providing a Voluntary Benefit solution with no direct cost to the Employer that will help pay for the out of pocket expenses such as Deductibles and Co-pays of their Health Insurance in the event of Hospitalization, Surgery, Illness, and Injury! Knowing that these Individuals and their Families are properly covered against financial loss is very important to me!

What are the three most important things about your business?

(1) Spending the necessary time to get to know the business owner and what would help in the growth of their Company.
(2) Implementing a Voluntary Employee Benefit Package providing a more robust menu of Benefits.
(3) Providing ongoing consultation and service for the Benefit of both the Business Owner and the Companies Employees.

Name one short term goal.

Lose some weight and tone up! I am sure as with others working out of my Home office during this Pandemic has not helped with the extra snacking and lack of exercise in not being able to go to the Gym. Although sanity walks in the early morning and evening have helped!

Establish a consistent daily routine in your Professional and Personal Life! You will have the gratification of getting so much more accomplished!
