Key Quotes:

“To anybody out there, let them start branding themselves, let that content get out there because the old way is gone. Everybody’s sitting at a stoplight right now looking at their phone, sometimes right when they’re rolling down the road. So, that’s where it’s off.” – Michael Lewis

“As an insurance agent, I want to be there for the absolute worst thing that can happen to someone to their family. I want to be there for them. I want to make sure that they had the right protection and that somebody listened and cared enough for them to help them get the coverage that they needed.” – Michael Lewis

“If you can’t do it, you almost need to pay someone to do it. Somehow make it happen because that’s what most people do. They’re like, I think I’m going to try social media. They post something, then a week goes by and they post something else. We end with all the algorithms and nobody ever sees it. It’s gone and they’re like, that didn’t work. Just keep going.” – Michael Lewis
