Blog - Alan - April 24, 2017 - 12:08pm
I’ve decided to start a blog as a way to communicate to anyone that would like to follow. I write papers and articles of interest, but was looking for something more conducive to communicating ideas.
I listened to a TED talk the other day. The psychologist/ speaker spoke about “Adolescence being a time of not knowing.” It was also a time when we have permission to try different things. I hadn’t thought of it that way, but it had a certain resonance with me. I have always felt that a man is the same person he is now as he was at thirteen or fourteen. Your morals are developed, your work ethic is determined, and your social personality becomes intact. I think any of us can change or fool people for a given period of time, but soon enough, it is too hard to keep it going.
I have been fortunate that my insurance career started when I was 21. It has become part of who I am. What I do every day is congruent to who I naturally am. I enjoy thinking how I get there. It’s interesting to remember influences and changing moments.
• What is one thing that people don’t know about you?
• What people had/ have an incredible influence on me? And do they know it?
• What specific events can you remember that were inflections or turning points?
• Do you keep track of funny/ embarrassing stories in your life? I do
So, this is my first shot at blogging. I plan on writing about things that interest me or that have hit a sensitive nerve. Some may also include higher end insurance planning ideas.
