“We're going to talk to about those things that people had happen where perhaps they went with the current... They went with... what was exciting and they got maybe totally wiped out or nearly wiped out from something that could've been totally avoided.”
“After I control the controllables, then it's just the time to go make good decisions elsewhere. We can't control whether or not the tragedy occurs to us. What we can control is sometimes the economic impact of those by having proper protection around us.”
“You didn't start making this kind of money overnight. Anybody in the top one percent didn't. You have a decade or two or three or more that you put into earning your income and yet oftentimes it's not protected. That's all I'll say about that.”
“Driving around in your car is one of the most dangerous things we can do both from safety every day and from a litigious standpoint. Umbrella insurance doesn't just cover you in your car but almost any kind of personal liability.”
