Our owner, Christy Yingling, conducts insurance seminars across the county. As people get their coffee and settle in, Christy always begins her seminars with the following story:
Let’s go back in time to the days of Scheherazade and Ali Baba. You are in a caravan, on a camel, traveling by night across the desert when suddenly a great voice booms from the heavens “Dismount, fill your pockets with sand, continue on your journey and at dawn you will be greatly rewarded”.
Not wanting to anger the Gods, you and your fellow travelers quickly dismount and put sand in your pockets. Continuing on the journey, you are apprehensive and wonder what will happen at dawn.
As the eastern horizon lightens everyone stops; with much angst and trepidation, you reach into your pockets….what you find delights and amazes as the sand has turned into precious stones and your hands are filled with diamonds, pearls, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. You are so happy!!!!! Yet there is a little voice whispering: “Why didn’t I get more sand?!?!”
Well, it’s the same with insurance….fill your pockets with coverage now and be rewarded at the time of a claim.
