Words of Wisdom

We all continue to pay “school fees” as we journey through life, the “university of life” has taught me more than any school or university could.

Thoughts on Insurance/Insurance Tips

It’s such an under-appreciated industry that helps so many people each year, I can’t understand why more people do not take up insurance as a career of choice. I did and have enjoyed every day of it, it can be challenging at times but overall, it’s very rewarding and very stimulating.
