Even Popeye needs some help from spinach. In this post, I look at the importance of the Insurance agent and some Insurtech startups providing tech spinach to the Popeye agent.
I started out my career in this industry as a financial advisor. Being a financial advisor was always my fallback plan if my entrepreneurial ventures did not work out (which, in my late teens/ early twenties, they didn’t). My father has been a financial advisor since I was about two years old. I have always been around the business, from interning for him, meeting various clients of his and even getting to attend some top producer trips. Maybe I am biased about how I see the future of the agent. For the purpose of this article, I will refer to ‘agent’ as an agent, financial advisor, broker or any other intermediary selling insurance via face to face means.
