Art Robson, 40 yr Insurance veteran & Top of the Table Producer
I find your Insurance Know-How articles very informative and helpful even though I am in the Insurance business for 39 1/2 years. Thank you. Enayat Michael Ali, CFP, CLU, CH.F.C., EPC
I cannot miss this opportunity to thank you for your sound articles that I have been reading and learning from for the past few weeks. I am an accountant, almost ready to retire now due to health issues, so it is a little late in the day for me, but I do hope that you will be gracious enough to permit me to quote from them from time to time to my younger relatives, with acknowledgements to you of course. If I had known about you earlier, I would have chosen insurance as a career and benefited from your wisdom and guidance.
With warm regards, Amir
