I love the satisfaction of helping clients to obtain life insurance protection who had Cancer or Coronary or other medical history who thought there chances of obtaining coverage were slim to none. :)
The majority of my career has been in healthcare tech with some retail experience. Looking to break into event management/coordinating (I believe this is the correct job title) space in either the entertainment, fashion & retail or cosmetic industry. Any insights or advice is appreciated!

It’s easy to get into a rut ... but I’ve been treating myself to one small treat a day (i.e. dark chocolate or a cookie) and it has done wonders for easing cravings. Get outside, do some pushups between calls, you can do this health-fam 💪🏻💯🔥
Has anyone here used infinite banking to fund their real estate investments? If so, could u share details about the policy design you got? Is there a way to tell how different insurance agents have different fees before engaging them in discussion?

I’m thinking about getting into The Salesforce practice. Currently doing IT implementations for Insurance. What are the SF projects like at Pwc? Is the department growing? What are the exit opps like?
For anyone debating whether to go in house, I recently went in house, and the mental health benefit of not having to worry about billable hours is completely worth the switch. It's great not having to worry about catching up on hours when I'm out for a doctor's appointment, vacation, etc. It's more of a mental health relief than I guessed it would be.
Correlation, or causality? Kanye West’s descent into what is clearly a mental health issue has tracked closely with his turn to conservative ideology. It’s really sad to watch. https://ktla.com/news/local-news/kanye-west-shows-up-at-skechers-l-a-headquarters-turned-away-by-security/
Is it considered unprofessional to send an email instead of a formal letter? Specifically, my firm has been retained by a title insurance company to obtain an easement for an insured property. Our first step is to reach out to the neighbor to ask them to grant the easement directly. The neighbor is a realtor and I easily found his email address online - I went to draft an email to him but found myself wondering if it’s unprofessional to send an email rather than formal letter. Thoughts?
About to be laid off (was given a heads up) and curious what an “acceptable” vs. “poor” severance pay is? For context: been with the company 2 years, director level role, will not be needing cobra/health insurance - only interested in how many weeks pay I’ll receive. Thank you!
I have been an adjuster for almost 5 years, although I have loved almost all of my time adjusting and find it fun, in a sense, I am so ready to take my skills into underwriting. Does anyone have any tips for transitioning from adjusting to underwriting? I know this will sound cliche but I find myself to be very passionate about insurance and I do well when interviewed, but it is difficult to get a response for underwriting applications because they all “require” underwriting experience.
What would you do? Worked at a small family law firm for 8 months. Hated the work and I didn’t get trained at all. I was poached by an immigration firm (I never wanted to do immigration but needed a way out). Fast forward 4 months, I love immigration but HATE the toxic work environment. I feel like a failure for ending up in another situation that’s not good for my mental health, which sucks because I really really love the work. Am I being too ambitious for wanting to go solo in one year?
Hello, new to Fishbowl! Here to see if anyone can push me in the right direction… basically been a pharmacy tech for the last 15 years. Started from the very bottom of retail to now specialty. Currently at around 80k. Really wanting to do more, but not sure where. Ultimately, 6figures would be nice and in healthcare. Debating on going back to school, again, not really sure for what since I don’t have an end goal, besides 6figures/healthcare. Ideas?
My family is on my health plan and it’s open enrollment. Spouse is currently on leave and their federal health plan open enrollment is early next year. Is it possible to enroll us and our child on my health plan and then switch to spouse’s plan during their open enrollment? Also, typically are fed health plans that much better than private for families with one child?
Man marriage is not easy. 1 year In and I feel like I’m the outlet to my wife’s anger and frustration. As ‘funny’ as it sounds, my mental health is diminishing. Ended up in therapy. The marriage isn’t really toxic, nor the type to walk away from. But I don’t know how to explain it.
