Insurance Policy Missing

insurance policyMissing or Lost Life Insurance Policies.

Unfortunately it’s not an uncommon story; someone pays the required premiums on a life insurance policy for years and neglects, or forgets, to give the policy, or any information about the policy, to the intended beneficiary. The insured person passes, the policy documents can’t be found, if the beneficiary even knows about it, and the insurance money is never paid out. And those unpaid life insurance dollars run into the billions!

If you think that this is not happening, and you are the beneficiary on a loved one’s life insurance policy, just ask yourself these few simple questions:

1. Do you know the details of the policy?

2. Do you know the whereabouts of the policy?

3. If something happened today, would you know where to find the details?

If you answered, “no,” to any of these questions you’ve got big gaps in your knowledge which could lead to a real financial tragedy.

Further, if you even suspect that you may be a beneficiary, get the details now. Waiting… Continue reading

Don’t Miss Out on Life

life insuranceDon’t Miss Out On Happiness – Stop and Enjoy It.

William Feather, an author and publisher said, “Plenty of people miss their share of happiness. Not because they never found it – but because they didn’t stop and enjoy it”.

For a lot of people, life is filled with schedules, appointments, endless to-do lists, and rushing here and there. This is often referred to as the “rat race”.

Then you add a little emotional topsy turvy thinking into the mix and your level of enjoyment and contentment seems to diminish and is quickly replaced with stress and unhappiness.

There is a key word that can help you return to happiness and it needs to be added to your vocabulary if you aren’t already using it. The word is “STOP”.

End the inner madness, the negative or catastrophic thinking, the worrying, fretting, complaining, bemoaning, blaming, and sometimes even “woe is me” syndrome.

You just have to say the four letter word “stop”. Sometimes that may mean… Continue reading

I Miss My Hearing

hearing4 Facts About Hearing Loss and Hearing Aids.

Did you know hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the US? Auditory malfunctions are generally associated with the aging process but can even begin in the very young. Maybe you’ve thought you might need hearing aids, but you’ve wondered how they would look or help.

Here are 4 facts about auditory aids that may relieve your worries:

1) When Should You Get One? The “when” is different for each person but generally there are clues as to when you should be thinking about getting him or her. If you’re beginning to have auditory trouble, it may be relieved by a good wax removal by your doctor. Or, perhaps your loss is due to a medication you’re taking for an illness. When these are not the culprits for auditory loss, it’s time to consider hearing aids.

If you decide you simply can’t live by communicating with others by trying to “read” their facial expressions, gestures, voice tone or posture, then it’s time.

Missing The Conversation

hearing lossCommon Symptoms of Hearing Loss.

If you’re having problems hearing, you’re not alone. One in seven adults in the UK experiences some form of hearing loss, so it’s important to book a hearing test. Your ears might be fine, but it’s worth getting examined in case the problem gets worse.

You might have a hearing problem if you do some of the following:

You avoid social settings

If you’ve been avoiding social outings because of your hearing, you must visit a hearing centre. A Hearing Aid Audiologist will ask you about your hearing problems and will examine your ears thoroughly. They’ll take a look at your outer ear and will see how you respond to different frequencies. Once the results are in, the hearing specialist will talk you through your options.

Finding Renters For You Homes

finding rentersGood Renters – How to Find Them.

If you are a landlord, the most important thing you want to have are good renters. They are relatively difficult to find because you cannot know a person fully after your first meeting. When you talk to interested tenants, they would always tell you the things you want to hear. You cannot expect them to be completely honest.

Before you look for a good renter, you need to establish what a good renter is first. You have to define what you are looking for. This will help you in your quest in finding a good tenant.

Who is a good tenant?

A good tenant is someone who reads your conditions and rental agreement. He must also adhere to these conditions. In addition, the renter should take care of the property as if it was his own. This means that he is willing to keep the property clean and in order. He should also see to it that if he invites visitors over, they would respect the property and… Continue reading

Missing Renters For Your Property

renting your propertyHow to Find Tenants and How to Keep Your Rental Property Occupied.

The most frequent question that I am asked is “How do you keep your properties rented”. Since I am an active landlord with many rental properties I decided to put my “system” down on paper so that other potential landlords might benefit. The following logical steps might seem obvious but you may be surprised to find out that you are missing a few key points that can make a huge difference.

Need more renters for your property, check out


In order to find tenants, they will need to know about your property. The only way that they will know is if you advertise. Putting a sign in the yard is not advertising. The only people that will see a for rent sign in the yard are people that live on that street. Advertising should be both offline and online. Traditional classified ads are still a great place to look for a rental (especially on Sundays). However newer online venues are also… Continue reading

Don’t Miss A Great Deal

shopping great dealDon’t Miss Deals at the End of the Season.

Normally deals begin at the end of the season but this year, because of the slower economy, you can find some good deals right now! Just consider what Sears, some Wal-Mart’s and Targets have just done; they have put out Christmas items! Not Halloween or fall or Thanksgiving but Christmas! That should tell you that there are some great deals to be had both at the retail stores as well as your on-line stores.

But just because thing are “on sale” doesn’t mean they are at the best price or that you should purchase them. The best way to protect yourself from making unnecessary purchases is to make a list of the items you need to buy for your home, yard, gifts, etc. as well as the dollar amount you would like to spend. But don’t stop there. Compare prices online and at the stores to get the best bang for the buck as far as value AND service.

Missing Scheduled Maintenance

car maintenanceKeep A Proper Maintenance Schedule For Your Car.

One basic factor to focus on when it comes to these tune-ups and service appointments is determining what you will be paying out of pocket. Warranty terms on your vehicle may allow you to have routine checks and problems repaired free of charge. However, basic wear-and-tear issues may be an out-of-pocket expense for you. You will want to know the exact details of the automobile’s warranty and exactly how many miles the car is covered for specific types of repair before you go to the dealership with any issues.

Specific mileage benchmarks can set the standard for different levels of service check-ins with a personal mechanic as you begin to set up target dates. As the miles add up, examinations of your vehicle may become more detailed as the range of items that experience wear and tear expand, and some items may need replacement. Brake pads, shocks and parts relating to suspension and alignment can benefit from routine maintenance, as they endure the bulk of stress from… Continue reading

Why People Don’t Buy Insurance.

As an insurance salesman for many years, it often puzzles me why people don’t buy sensible protection. Why “self-insure” a large risk instead of buying affordable protection? Here is my “Top 10” list of why people don’t buy insurance.

1. It is not required.

You may be required by a business contract, bank loan or state auto liability requirement to buy insurance, however, in most cases, protection is a choice. No one requires you to buy higher auto liability limits beyond minimum requirements OR to protect your assets beyond the bank lien requirement OR protect your family with Life Insurance. Many people don’t believe in buying something that they are not required to buy regardless of the value.

2. Some Don’t Believe in Insurance

Sometimes a client will only buy the coverage required and then only begrudgingly. They have no belief that the insurance has any value and consider any money spent on it to be a waste. No discussion of their potential risks or how insurance can be helpful… Continue reading

Many people dream of success by way of investing in real estate. While having an investment vision is one thing, the ability to pursue that vision is another issue.

Growing a Brand

A successful way to grow a brand is by duplicating the same successful formula in different locations. After a company has carved a market niche in their home town and developed a following among satisfied customers, the next growth step is opening a second location. Although the initial company founders can probably take care of a second or third location on their own, beyond that they need a new plan.

The best way to grow a brand is through franchising. With a franchise, the company owners will sell to others the right to use the company name and logo, plus train the buyer to duplicate their successful business formula. The training is usually for a set amount of time, then the owner may give advice whenever the franchise buyer needs help. The most recognizable franchise models are the fast-food companies, some of which have thousands of franchises all over the world. There are many fields in which the franchise concept has proven successful.
