Key Quotes:

  • “The best thing I’ve probably done in the last year or two is connect with others around me to say, you know what? We’re all in this together, we’ve all made that same mistake and let’s help each other prevent going through that. And that’s ultimately kind of what our business is, let’s sell you a policy so that we can prevent that, right?” – Zack Baldwin
