Key Quotes:

  • “I would love everybody to be able to do everything they ever wanted to do in life. That would be great, James could get his version, and then the rest of the world would get theirs. We are in a very specific industry and insurance. Your independent insurance agencies are our bread and butter.” – Steven Mohr
  • “Some of the other challenges that we’re seeing a lot is around onboarding, you know, data transfers, and they’re just complex and we rely on other people’s data.” – Steven Mohr
  • “I’m an agency guy at the end of the day, I think most people would tell you that about me. You know, I think insurance agents are about the best group of people in the world. I think your jobs are incredibly hard. I tried to do it back in the day, and it’s just a grind and I have all the respect in the world for you.” – Steven Mohr
