Key Quotes:

  • “I think that insurance is still such a relationship business, that there will be a point that the “not talking” doesn’t work anymore. There’s going to be a stage in this process that there has to be relationship building, and it’s harder to do digitally.” – Michele Horwitz
  • “It’s okay to take time for yourself and not every client is a good client. But, the ones that are good understand when you need to take time for yourself.” – Michelle Mosher
