Our organization has been through recessions, gas rationing, 1987 market crash, 2000 dot com bust, and we will never forget 9/11. Ladies and Gentlemen, I do see us coming back to a more “normalized” life. We will go out to dinner with friends and family again. The stock market will come back. New jobs will be developed that we never thought could be considered.
But, I believe, because of my experience, that the next 12 months won’t be the same as they were in February. And, the ranks in the financial services profession will be reduced. Many pros near retirement will just either call it a day, or just work their existing books as the changes that must be made seem too daunting. But, those of us that adapt will find the landscape in our profession to be better than before. Never before has the desire for “Safe Money Places” been so great. And, we have the products that Americans need and want.
So, The Ohlson Group and the Safe Money Places Agent Network is reaching out to you to see if you need any advice or just want to talk regarding this new challenge/opportunity that we are all facing. Now, more than ever, it is critical that you work with an Insurance Marketing Organization that has the experience in good times and bad, a track record of excellence, top notch product portfolio, digital marketing experience and success in the field. I have been fortunate to have served many roles in our business. I have been a successful agent (Life Member MDRT), agency builder, president of insurance companies, and now proud partner with my sons in a privately held boutique IMO.
We look forward to having a conversation with you, if we haven’t already, and helping you as we have helped other agents and advisors since 1975. As always, thanks for your support and business. We are all in this together. If you aren’t doing business with us today, call us and find out why agents from coast to coast, continue to refer to us as… a different experience.
Have a great year and until next time… Good Selling!
