Key Quotes:

  • “We’ve got to make sure people have an umbrella policy. And I know, we’re not going to be 100% close on that. But we need to make sure people understand if they don’t get it, why they’re not getting it? What are they missing by not having that policy?” – Jason Kilgo
  • “Our mission is helping people live life confidently through insurance.” – Jason Kilgo
  • “I think right now, you’ve got to reach, you’ve got to dig in. And don’t give up, don’t get down. Don’t think the world is coming to an end like a lot of people are thinking about.” – Jason Kilgo
