Where do you see the company going? There is a lot of change going on. Is there a future in agency sales in this organization? Do they understand what they label as a "Trusted Advisor"? Platitudes are easy. Life is harder. The dynamic appears…Continue

When I first heard that Jim was “retiring” as NAPAA’s Executive Director, I felt that he might be leaving too soon and I hoped he would reconsider. Retirement might be good for some but Jim is the kind of person that never let a “good cause go…Continue

I've used this machine for about 7 years as the office network printer/scanner/fax. Up until last week when it suddenly gave up the ghost, it worked quite well. I only ask the question because I intend to recycle the machine, but still have a toner…Continue
Have you ever had one of those days, weeks, months, years? I’m a pretty pragmatic person and I expect bumps in the road to surface from time to time, but for the past few years it seems that those we labor for live solely to create those bumps. It’s getting tired and I’m getting tired of fighting with dimwits to get them to do the right thing.
Why is doing the right thing such a difficult concept to grasp? It’s not like engineering an Indy Car, or building a space shuttle. It’s…Continue

I was recently notified that I had to pay MVR expense fee because my ratio was above 2 to 1. I find it interesting that everyone of the MVR's that were ordered a policy was written for all but one. Many of them were future eff for March, and most of those were bound in Feb. This is a crazy way for Allstate to get me to pay for more expenses. Maybe I should only write policies the day I run MVR's!
Year-end phenomenal but even that was a stressor as I didn't really know how the end looked until my February paycheck (bonus tool nor GW ever reflected completed required #s). Last proverbial straw. The agency is on the chopping block. Took frostyone's advice, got over the indecisiveness. Now that I put a dollar figure on the agency & told another grown up about it, I'm starting to look forward to being out. Though even that is not without it stresses. Am already wondering if I put the…Continue
