I am friends with my clients. Don't block them on fb. I have a general rule that if I wouldn't want to hang out with you one on one for an extended period of time I will not take you on as a client.

How did you leverage it in taking clients with you? Did you post about the move or message them to start a conversation and then let it transition to business? Interesting. Never thought about it from a break away stance. Have just been thinking about socially getting to leverage it and asking for intros to their friends they post about etc

Doing this creates loyalty and helps reduce attrition. Things like this is how I was successful leaving the bank and taking clients with me. I think having a social and business relationship is important. In addition, having the social connection will increase referral opportunities.

Industry vets - in your experience how recession proof is insurance? I was not yet in the job market last recession but I watched my mom get laid off and struggle to find employment during that time for the next 1.5 years. I was wanting to hit the job market towards the end of this year, but now I worry that if I do move companies, the recession could put me in position of last one hired first one fired. Is it better to stay put?
