Key Quotes:

  • “I guess the educating that we do is to educate agents on how to be compliant with the regulations, with licensing… Just staying on the right side of the law so that they don’t get a cease and desist, so that they don’t get fines and penalties. That’s the education that we do.” – Arleen Taveras
  • “What was great about facing and overcoming those challenges was that when the states were ready to automate, when they were able to interface with us electronically, we were ready.” – Arleen Taveras
  • “Our podcast episodes have usually been almost an hour. So, it’s a really good time to be able to connect with the person and get to know them, and then dive deep into what solutions they’re providing for our industry.” – Arleen Taveras
