# 1 - Why This Blog ?

October 13, 2017

If you might ask why this website and blog were created, here is a bit of our journey.

 

Having been a financial advisor for over 30 years, I have always felt certain that protection of income is one of the most important things I can do for clients.  Income is the most valuable asset most folks have.  Unfortunately some people would rather avoid the subject than realistically face it.

However, 2 life-changing factors drive my focus:

 

1.   ABILITY  TO  DELIVER  MONEY  WHEN  NEEDED  MOST 
When someone is unable to work, I have seen how devastating the loss of income can be to a family and a business.  Also I have seen what a difference it made when I delivered needed income protection benefits.  That happened because clients had faith that the protection I advised was essential and worth paying for.  For example, one client was protected from losing his home and all his savings.  Another who lost his dental practice now gets a check every month.  Others during extremely difficult times received a reliable income.  What if I had not worked to provide them a vital safety net ?

 

2.   UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL -- MY  OWN  DISABILITY  EXPERIENCE
One day my work came to a sudden stop because of colon cancer (2 abdominal surgeries, 6 months of chemotherapy, 24 days in the hospital, feeling a lot of helplessness and being unable to work as before for nearly 3 years).  Now more than ever, I urge all who will listen to grasp how essential it is to have a realistic backup plan.  What will you do when your paychecks stop because of the inability to work?  I understand keenly now what this experience is like.  I have walked in those shoes.

 

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  I hope you will share what’s here with people you know and care about: family, friends and co-workers.  Your conversation with them could have a deep and lasting impact on their lives.
