Recently my husband and I were fortunate enough to take some time out for a hike.  We were mesmerized by the vast beauty.  As we took in the view from what felt like the top of the world, we both expressed how lucky we are to live and raise our kids here.  
The remainder of the day followed that same line of thought. Being thankful for our families and their health.  Appreciating this time to slow things down, and be grateful for each other.  Understanding what is truly important and what is not.  How can we take what we've learned from this experience and change our future for the better?    
Adjust our focus towards family and true friends.  Spend more time doing what we enjoy, not what we or others feel like we should be doing. As people around the world realign what's important and plan for the future, you'll see a lot more talk about: 
  • Index and Whole Life insurance for supplemental income.
  • Protecting your retirement savings with long-term care insurance and annuities. 
  • Business continuation planning - key man and buy/sell insurance.  
For more information on any of these topics, please contact me.
