Not only is ID theft a major issue that can be life changing, legal issues can too. If we don’t know our legal rights – we don’t have any!

If you will invest the time to fully understand it and you can’t get to the point of wanting to own our membership for you and your family, then you should pass on the biz opp because you couldn’t succeed. You can’t sell something you truly don’t believe in. You may try for a while but eventually you’ll fail at it. We do have thousands who enjoy the membership but would never want to be involved in any kind of marketing…that is fine and it’s why I pose two questions to you…

Would You Like To Improve Your Security?

Here’s just one more of the 1,000’s of testimonials our company gets about our membership…

     ‘REAL Results’ Member Story of the Day - Dealing with the BIG Bank:

“One of my first ever uses of the service saved me about $4,000. I had just gotten my membership a few days before. I received a letter from a large nationwide bank informing me that my line of credit with them was changing. The change was a significant increase of my interest rate. I called the bank to opt out of the change as was commonly part of the process. I was informed by the bank that there was no opt out policy, the letter I received as a “courtesy” notification on the mandatory change to my loan. Now, my loan agreement called for a fixed rate for the life of the loan. I mentioned this to the representative. She said that the agreement had changed and the increase was going through regardless.

In the past when put in this position I had bluffed and said that “you” would be hearing from my attorney. As I could not normally afford $200-300 an hour for this type of representation it was always a bluff. Now, having LegalShield, I meant it. The representative scoffed and told me flat out that I was free to have an attorney contact them, it would do no good.

I called my law firm and was contacted within two hours by one of the senior partners. After I faxed him the letter from the bank we talked about the situation. He was frank with me. He felt that I had little or no evidence that I could use to prove that my interest rate was locked in and guaranteed. He did however feel that a letter on my behalf may help. There were several regulatory agencies sited in the letter from the bank. He though that by CC’ing them we might help with the matter but he felt it was a long shot. I was very pleased with his honesty about the situation and after all, there was no additional cost to me so having a letter sent on my behalf made total sense, regardless of the outcome.

To make a long story short my law firm sent a strongly worded letter to the bank and copied the regulatory agencies.

Almost exactly 10 days later, I received a letter from this national bank, apologizing for the misunderstanding with my account. They were happy to inform me that there were no changes to my loan! I had a friend in the banking industry review the changes that were proposed by the bank and he determined that the letter from my law firm saved me about $4,000 dollars! In essence, that one use alone paid for my membership for about 19 years!”

And here’s a few more… A Few of Our Membership Stories Fb

Increase Your Income?

On the business side—

If you’re happy just being someone’s employee the rest of your life and building their residual income and dreams rather than your own, that’s fine.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/971219_10153108460735029_1026982089_n.jpg

If you’re not and you’re ready to invest the time to dig into our opportunity with me to fully understand it all, call me and let’s get serious about it all to see if it’s a fit for you and for me for us to work together building a business.

Either is fine with me, just please let me know.

Many have started part time and built up financial and time freedom over the past 5-10+ years while others have started full time to earn immediate income in business plan and group sales. If so many others can do it – maybe you can do it too IF you’ve got what it takes.

Both the membership and the business opportunity are great!

Just let me know.

Thanks.

How to Improve Your Critical Thinking Skills and Make Better Business Decisions

 BY  | April 29, 2013

BY  | April 29, 2013

To make the best decisions possible, you need to think critically and quickly to pick out any flaws in your processes that might harm your business.

Richard Branson on Decision-Making For Entrepreneurs

Editor’s Note: Entrepreneur Richard Branson regularly shares his business experience and advice with readers. What follows is the latest edited round of insightful responses. Ask him a question and your query might be the inspiration for a future column.

Q: What were your most important managerial decisions — the ones that changed your business? - Volodymyr Kravchuk, Kiev, Ukraine

A: Most good chief executives or entrepreneurs only make three or four key decisions every year. Running your business’s day-to-day operations and managing your team can take much of your time, so there are usually only a few that stand out — the game-changing decisions that can make or sometimes break a business.

Looking back over my career, which now spans more than four decades, there were many occasions when I got it right and a few when I did not. A few guiding principles helped; these are the things I would have liked to have known when I was just starting out.

Making Better Decisions

Decisive

I had considered reading and reviewing this book some time

ago, but I couldn’t make up my mind whether to or not! Dad joke—well it is father’s day. Decisive: How to make better choices in life and work by Chip and Dan Heath offers helpful advice for improving our ability to make decisions. It describes how we can focus on what lies in front of us and ignore many of the background factors that may, in fact, be even more important to the choices. It takes us beyond trusting our gut, on the one hand, and careful analysis, on the other. It helps us to understand some of the hindrances that get in the way of good decision-making, so that we can overcome them and choose wisely.

Important Tips For More Financial Independence

Road To Financial Independence

Photo-Landlordology.com
Financial Independence
  • Do you have your own business now?

  • Are you thinking of starting a business soon?

  • Do you need to find a solid business opportunity?

  • Would you like to protect yourself against legal risks?

  • Would you like  to protect yourself against Identity Theft?

  • Do you believe that a good Marketing Strategy can help your business grow?

If you say yes to any of the above questions…here are some great

“Important Tips For More Financial Independence”

Here are some straightforward answers to the above questions.

  • For the  first question, “Do You Have Your  Own Business Now”?, in case you don’t want  a business…just move to the fourth question down as that may apply to you. If your answer is yes to this question then I have more questions for you…1) are you satisfied with the growth and  profitability of  your business? 2) are you using legal and consulting advice to assist you and is  it costing you over $1,000 per year? 3) and if your business could benefit from lower costs and greater professional legal advice then just fill out the “Request For Free 30 Minute Consultation Form” on the right column and I will contact you  promptly.  I also recommend that you read another Post on  this blog…http://dannorrisblog.com/small-business-owner-reduce-costs/…and there are more relavent Posts here under the Small Business Tab at the top of  the page.
  • For the second and third questions if your answer is yes, just fill out the “Request For Free 30 Minute Consultation Form” on the right column and I will contact you  promptly. You also may be interested in reading Posts under the Business Opportunity Tab at the top of the page.
  • For the question “Would  You Like To Protect Yourself Against Legal Risks”?… only those who  have this totally covered can honestly say no…and the remaining 80-90% of the U.S. and Canadian population need to say yes. I call upon all responsible people to take a look at these two sites and make a decision in your best interests. You can begin  on-going coverage today for $17 or $26 per month. Please watch this…http://dannorrisblog.com/legal-issues-why-not-seek-attorneys-for-help/. You also may be interested in reading Posts under the Legal Plan Tab at the top of the page.
  • For the question “Would you like  to protect yourself against Identity Theft?…anyone who says no and does not have “economical” protection obviously has their head in sand. As a conscious citizen you  must have heard or read that Identity Theft has been the  greatest Consumer  Crime for the last 12 years, and is more costly than illicit drug  crimes. In 2012 we had over 12 million people who suffered through the results of this crime. It cannot be  stopped…only the results can be corrected! Again I call upon all  responsible people to take  a look at these two  sites and make a decision  in your best interests. You can begin on-going coverage today for $9.95/$12.95 or $19.95/24.95 per  month. The first figures are with a Legal Plan and the second are standalone. I recommend that  you watch this video at…http://dannorrisblog.com/identity-theft-6-reasons-to-have-the-right-protection-with-restoration/ .You also may be interested in reading Posts under the Identity Theft Tab at the top of the page.
  • For the question “Do you believe that a good Marketing Strategy can help your business grow?”…I recommend that you read these two brief articles by industry leaders in Attraction Marketing, Ann Sieg, and Blogging,  Ty Tribble (#1 Blogger). I encourage you also to fill out the “Request For Free 30 Minute Consultation Form” on the right column and I will contact you  promptly.      http://dannorrisblog.com/attraction-marketing-the-lighter-side/.

Are You Ready For An IRS Audit? Protect Yourself!

IRS Audit

IRS Tax Audit

We have admissions during Senate Investigations this summer that specific political organizations and individuals have been targeted by the IRS for delaying or stopping the approval of organizing a 501 C4 organization. Key members of the IRS have pleaded the 5th Amendment in order to avoid revealing the truth. At present, Congressional Hearings have learned that the top legal IRS official is part of these efforts. Investigations are on-going with much pushback from the Administration. Given these facts, and as a citizen without or with a business, do you feel more or less at risk for an audit by the IRS? If you are identified for an audit, will you represent yourself or will you have professional legal and cpa’s represent you or will you do it yourself? This information is provided to allow you to prepare for what we hope never happens to you…

Are You Ready For An IRS Audit? Protect Yourself!

Probably the most dreaded event in the financial life of a U.S. taxpayer is when the IRS notifies you that you are to be audited!

And the reasons for this event being so dreaded is the fact that you will have a very strong chance of  being in worse shape than you were before the audit in many ways…emotionally, financially, time-wise and maybe you wind up with a pay-off period lasting several years.There is very limited opportunity that you will be more pleased than you were before the audit.

It will definitely cost you time for preparation for the audit just to complete the process. You will in all likelihood experience anxiety and be very concerned about where the results of the audit will lead. You may elect to have a tax attorney or your tax preparer represent you in the process and you will need to fork over money to get this done. These professionals cost in the range of $300 per hour and running up a $15,000 bill with 50 hours of counsel is not unusual.

Then you will need to set aside the necessary time to accomplish the audit…and we both know that you could be doing other things more constructive…like growing your business instead of spending money talking about why things cost you so much. Don’t get me wrong…in some cases an IRS audit may be justified. It is just the fact that the scales are tilted totally in favor of the government and this is very intimidating.

The IRS is armed with many thousands of pages of federal tax law,  has unlimited resources to interpret the outcome of such an audit, and in many cases of governmental authority,  raise questions as to the fairness and objectivity of their actions. We currently face major concerns in this country over how the new healthcare  law will be enforced. At present, several thousand additional IRS agents are to be hired to accomplish this task. And of course this raises the issues of the Constitutional Rights to the privacy of citizens personal data. These are all very important subjects to consider.

Tax Audit Horror Stories: When the IRS Attacks

Joan Smith, 52, a Philadelphia-based artist, was preparing to go in for spinal surgery in 2010 when the IRS put a $10,000 tax lien on her bank account — which was more money than she had in the bank. It turns out she’d never received an audit memo that had been sent to her old address. She spent the next 11 months digging out from the paperwork avalanche that comes with a full audit.

So you may be thinking ….what if I receive a Notice of IRS Audit…what should I do to prepare now before that awful event could ever happen?

It would be a very smart decision for you to read the paragraph below and investigate what you can do now to protect yourself…at very affordable costs. It would also be a smart decision to talk with your tax preparer to ask their recommendations.

The most important message that I can give to you is that there are excellent, affordable legal plan services with highly qualified attorneys available to represent you…and by understanding what they will do for you when you have an affordable monthly legal plan.  Are you interested in knowing about these legal plan services, what they can do for you and how much they cost?

Why Legal Plans For Commercial Truck Drivers?

Why Legal Plans For Commercial Truck Drivers?
Commercial Truck Drivers Provide To Us the Goods and Services Which Are The Lifeblood of Our Country!

 

Safety

U.S. Department Of Transportation. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

U.S. Department Of Transportation. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

Why Legal Plans For Commercial Truck Drivers? Due to the fact that commercial truck drivers are on the highway throughout their working day, they are subject to many times more laws and risks than the average citizen.

These risks can be described at a minimum as traffic accident risks, personal injury risks, property damage risks, tragic accident risks, legal liability risks, risks of life, loss of employment risks, loss of assets in the form of home and investment risks, family risks, and your freedom from incarceration plus others. These risks are substantial and represent essentially your total welfare as a commercial truck driver.

How do drivers reduce and minimize these risks? Many answers are important… good health habits, good driving habits, adequate rest, following sound safety and driving rules, plus a very important asset that not enough drivers and companies pay attention to…and that is the 24/7 available services of an affordable, experienced, competent transportation attorney available to you everywhere that you drive.

How easy is it for a driver to show up in court some 2000 miles away from home? Not very! But a local experienced attorney that knows the local judges and law officers can be extremely valuable. In some cases the driver’s company may provide an attorney to represent their drivers, however in many cases the driver is responsible for his own actions, whether trivial or traumatic. The services of an attorney throughout the country,  experienced in the commercial trucking industry, is an extremely important asset to a truck driver and to their companies.

These plans are available for the individual, family, and discounted for groups of five or more members within a company. This article is to emphasize the importance to drivers and to commercial driving companies of having affordable legal services in the form of proven legal plans for each driver. By offering drivers the opportunity to obtain good legal plans that protect them on the road,  it makes the driving profession more attractive and less risky. Driver shortage is caused in some part by the amount of risks that a driver assumes by following a driving profession. Reducing risk can have a positive impact on driver satisfaction.  Companies concerned about driver safety and welfare are equally concerned about protecting drivers from getting caught up in a legal maze and a web of government regulations. This article will provide you with a link to obtain full description, costs and how to obtain memberships today with a leading company that has provided affordable legal plans for 40 years, LegalShield.       ————————————————————————————————————————- Reprinted From The Trucker- Attorneys Can Save Drivers from getting lost in tangled legal maze http://www.cdlp.biz/uploads/The_Trucker.pdf ——————————————————————————————— ———-

Social Change Brings New Risks-Legal Issues and Identity Theft

This post describes how “Social Change Brings New Risks”

As citizens in the U.S. we usually seek out our insurance professionals and financial planning professionals to recommend a program of personal risk management to us. Typically this program includes health insurance, life insurance, automobile insurance, home owners insurance, disability insurance, renter’s insurance, long term care insurance, flood insurance, umbrella insurance and perhaps a few others. Ironically, two of the best kept secrets in the U.S and Canadian societies is that two of our major personal risks that we currently face are for legal issues and for identity theft.

ID Theft Laptop

Identity Theft by Laptop

 

According to a recent study, some 57 million Americans had legal issues last year and only about 60% dealt with them using the services of an attorney. This means that some 22 million people did not deal with their legal issues using a professional attorney.

Next, many do not realize the fact that identity theft has been the largest FTC consumer theft complaint for 12 years, and now exceeds the costs to consumers of the illegal drug trade . Thieves have realized that identity theft is much easier and much less dangerous to accomplish. In 2011 more than 11 million people in our country were victims of identity theft…and each day some 30,000 people awake to learn their identity has been stolen.[/dropshadowbox]

LegalShield is a 40+ year old company that provides effective, economical solutions for these two key issues. The public is realizing in growing numbers the importance of legal protection and identity theft shield. The gradual transition to recognizing that these issues are very important comes from recent information to explain the importance of these risks. The world changes and so do our risks change. Employers are also becoming aware in these challenging economic times that more than 60% of employee absences appear to be caused by employee stress. Both of these products by LegalShield provide solutions that reduce stress on individuals. Click on the banner below for more information…

Can you obtain legal services for less than one dollar per day?

Would it be of any importance to you if you could? Do you think that it could ever be important to you even if not so now?

All American Family!

Let’s say that you are a typical, normal citizen of this country, living a life that normal citizens live, and that you have a wife and you are parents of a daughter age 14 and a son age 17. You live anywhere in the U.S., own your own home, and have found it necessary to search for employment in the last 3 years. At present you are employed and so is your partner, however at incomes decreased by $50,000 of what you were making three years ago. Due to the economy and job changes your income has been reduced as a result of those changes. These changes are causing significant concerns and problems in your personal lives and you need to find effective legal and financial solutions that you can afford. This scenario is quite typical for more than 50 million citizens in our country right now. Here are typical legal issues our citizens face…

  • Have you or do you know anyone that has needed the services of a law firm recently? This could be for any issue however let me give you some examples…for a mortgage foreclosure issue?  For a mortgage modification issue? Have you known anyone who has paid an attorney a $500 fee per month to keep their home out of foreclosure? Has anyone you know lost their home to foreclosure? Is the person still paying the $500 or thereabouts fee?
  • Do you know anyone who has debt and collection issues and needs the services of an attorney?    Do you know anyone who is facing bankruptcy? Do they need legal assistance?
  • Do you know anyone who has divorce issues or child care issues and needs the services of an attorney?
  • Have you made a purchase of a home, a car, entered into an apartment or condo rental agreement during the last few years and needed the services of an attorney to review these documents? Are you about to do so now?
  • Has anyone attempted to take advantage of you recently and you could have used the services of an attorney to avoid the consequences?
  • Have you or anyone in your family received a traffic violation ticket and needed assistance? Has your 17 year old child received a traffic violation and needed representation in court by an attorney? Will your insurance policy costs increase $50-$70 per month for several years as a result of these traffic violations if not resolved?
  • Have you been charged with a traffic violation, including vehicular homicide,  and need legal representation in court? Does your automobile insurance policy provide this protection?
  • Do you know anyone who has been a victim of identity theft? Do they have an effective solution to restore their identity?. What about their children? Children’s social security numbers collected at birth and used to age 18 provide tremendous buying and illegal identity power to thieves. Drivers license numbers and medical records numbers also are at major risks.
  • Did the IRS notify you recently that  they wanted to audit your income tax returns for a prior year?
  • Have you received a summons that someone intends to sue you on a civil matter? A business matter?
  • Do you have a Will, Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney? Does your spouse or partner have these documents in place?

The reason that I ask you these questions is that many millions of Americans now have these legal issues, and due to unaffordable costs, not knowing a qualified attorney, or not knowing what to do next, they just do nothing.

I personally know individuals or have personally experienced all of these issues described above. To read about personal experiences of more individuals like myself and others that I know…click on this link…

Could legal services that cost you less than one dollar per day be helpful to you or to someone that you know that is going through similar circumstances?

Unfortunately millions of Americans are uninformed as to any available solutions. I was one of these until less than 2 year ago. Even my best, closest friends and my congressman did not know.

Does Your Small Business Face Legal Challenges Alone?

Small Businesses Face Legal Challenges Alone

New Study Shows Large Number of Small Businesses Don’t Seek Legal Help Despite Risks

PR Newswire

DALLAS, June 20, 2013

DALLAS, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - A new nationwide study released today by LegalShield shows a majority of America’s smallest businesses – those with 250 employees or less – go at it alone when it comes to dealing with legal issues that impact their business.  From debt collection, to contract disputes, to regulatory interpretations and employee issues, small business owners increasingly make critical decisions that could affect the success of their business without the benefit of advice or counsel from an attorney.

The Legal Needs of Small Business Survey shows that more than 13 million small businesses – nearly 60 percent of all small businesses – experienced significant legal events in the past two years.  However, a majority of those businesses (54 percent) did not seek the services of an attorney to help them deal with those issues.  When asked why they did not hire an attorney, 57 percent reported they believed they could handle legal issues better on their own, while 40 percent said they did not use an attorney because of cost concerns.  The reluctance to use an attorney comes despite the fact that nearly all respondents listed at least one legal issue – debt collection, insurance disputes, government regulations, tax issues, contract concerns, intellectual property protection, product liability and threats of lawsuits by customers and employees – as one of the “greatest threats to their business.”

“Our study clearly points to a dangerous cost-benefit issue in the marketplace,” said LegalShield CEO Rip Mason.  ”A frightening number of small business owners deal with legal issues on their own because they don’t believe hiring an attorney is worth the significant cost they have to pay.  Fortunately, having access to legal advice and counsel does not have to be expensive.  LegalShield Small Business legal protection plans take the cost-benefit debate off the table.  For a fraction of what a small business would pay an attorney to handle a single issue, they can have access to their own dedicated law firm for advice and counsel.”

Legal expenses for small businesses can be significant.  Owners reported spending an average of $7,600 in legal expenses per year with 20 percent saying they spend $10,000 or more per year for legal help.   With LegalShield Small Business plans, owners instead pay between $75 and $125 per month, depending on their number of employees, to have year-round access to a range of legal services they need to protect their businesses.  The most sought after legal services by small businesses, according to the survey, are assistance with debt collection and review of contracts, agreements and other important business documents – two prominent services covered under a LegalShield Small Business Plan.  LegalShield attorneys also provide consultation on such issues as incorporation, intellectual property protection, employment issues and vendor problems.  Services covered under LegalShield Small Business plans include:

  • Ten initial debt collection letters written per month;
  • Three contracts, up to 15 pages in length, reviewed each month;
  • Three business documents reviewed each month; and
  • Up to 75 hours in trial defense services, including 15 hours of pre-trial preparation and 60 hours at trial, on covered matters.

“When looking at the data on the kinds of legal issues business owners are handling on their own, it becomes clear they are spending a lot of time on this effort,” Mason said.  “This is time they’re not spending on growing their business.  Small business owners have to wear a lot of hats, but being the company attorney is not one of them when they have ready and inexpensive access to advice and counsel through our small business legal plans.”

Methodology

This study of small businesses in the U.S., commissioned by LegalShield, was conducted over the Internet.  A sample of owners and top executives of small businesses with 1 to 250 employees was drawn from the Executive Advisory Board®, Decision Analyst’s online panel of managers, executives, directors, and owners of smaller businesses.  Panelists were invited by email to the screening survey, and those who qualified were invited to Decision Analyst’s DAISurvey™ website to participate in the study.  A total of 1,007 interviews were completed online from May 2 through May 14, 2013. Statistical variation is 3 percent.

Discover The Secret World of Economical Legal Advice

The topic of this post is “Discover The Secret World of Economical Legal Advice”.

On July 20th, I published on Amazon.com a Paperback version and an EBook version on  KDP Kindle Select the first of a series of books on the subject of creating, protecting and achieving financial independence. The series will include practical advice and experiences in a number of different fields relating to law, finances, wealth creation and protection, risk management, and marketing and sales.

The book is available internationally with a U.S. price of $9.99 for the EBook version and $9.49 for the Paperback version. Country currency prices are available from Amazon.

The Law

Legal Plans

The author has had extensive experience with retaining attorneys over a long time period and has elected to share some of those experiences with you to benefit you.

The first book is self-published through Amazon in both E-book and
paperback versions.  Adhering to the terms and conditions agreed to with Amazon and Amazon KDP Kindle Select, they have exclusive rights to distribution and at this time there will be no free copies distributed.

The author’s background can be viewed at the “About Dan” Page on his Blog at www.dannorrisblog.com.

The author believes that this book provides value to many individuals
as it is based on more than 50 years of adult experiences, living in more than 30 cities,
owning more than 17 homes, and starting my working career in a retail store
and becoming an executive in five professional fields including administration, chemical analysis, mechanical design, engineering services, computer aided design system management, regional sales management, corporate sales management and support organizations, sales executive at v.p. level for five start-up companies, personal and small business financial advisor, and CEO of several start-up businesses. The financial advisor practice was as a personal and small business financial advisor employed with a Fortune 10 company. Since then there is much more.

I believe that the value one can gain from this book is on how to save money and avoid expenses, how to protect your assets, how to increase your security, how to  make better decisions, and how to more effectively grow your assets and your business. I sincerely invite you to read and enjoy this book.

Attorney At Law

Why are they so important to us?

What should you do about protecting yourself? Now or later?

[color-box]Topic for the Day!

Why an ongoing relationship with an “Attorney At Law” and “Law Offices” are wise choices. For many years we have been taught by our insurance agents, financial advisors and tax accountants that it is wise to carry personal insurance to cover risks of loss to our homes and property including autos, boats, motorcycles, disability, life, health, long-term care and other similar coverages. Typically this protection is all organized in what is called your “risk management plan”. The reason for carrying these kinds of coverages is to protect your assets and your income against risk of loss, to accomplish replacement in certain cases, and to avoid catastrophe.

During the last 20 years our North American and Canadian societies have evolved to create substantial new risks which pose significant threats to our assets, freedoms, liberty, wealth and identity. For example, we have now become extremely litigious societies and in the U.S. some 4200 new lawsuits are filed each day for a total of about 15 million lawsuits last year. In North America the average citizen has need for an attorney on average of 1-3 times each year. Small businesses are prime targets for frivolous lawsuits and justifiable lawsuits as well. Identity Theft and Identity Fraud have been the leading complaints for the FTC for 12 consecutive years, last year totaling more than 12 million cases. ID Theft and ID Fraud have surpassed illegal drug dealing as the most expensive crime losses. 20 years ago we did not have the internet and now more than 500 - 1000 people are scammed every day by national and international criminals. In Germany, more than 80% of the population there carries legal plans for protection whereas in the U.S. only 4-7% have such protection. In some foreign countries you cannot obtain a driver’s license without a legal plan.

My point in raising these facts is to create awareness and recognition that we are now more at risk in the legal world and our personal identity world than ever before, and for risks that are much greater in many cases than for what we are paying insurance premiums.  As explanation for this I believe that many are ignoring the risks either due to financial constraints or because we have very few champions who are raising the level of importance and awareness of these risk areas. We are so busy in our society that any thing that takes longer than 30 seconds of our time will probably not hold our attention. The media reports incidents as news…not as something that we should protect ourselves against. Insurance and financial advisor professionals can be of great service to their clients by becoming familiar with what is available and acknowledging that these new risks can adversely affect you. Here are some examples of risks, recommendations and solutions that can be very informational for you.[/color-box]
