My mother was a master at hiding gifts. She never brought them into the house when my brother and I were awake. When she brought them in from the trunk of her car after dark, she would keep them in bags from random stores. Just in case my brother and I were up watching. Every kid wants to see Toys R Us or Gamestop. My mom would roll in with Home Depot or Sears. Just to get us off the trail.
Once the gifts were in the house, they went straight to the closet, which was kept locked. If we were caught trying to get in, we’d get grounded. Trying to get a glimpse at what was coming for Christmas was like a montage of security clips from a classic heist movie like Ocean’s 11. We just gave up and just waited for Christmas. Thanks to my mom, I’ve got a mental binder full of notes on how to keep my own daughter from sneaking peeks before the big day.
The sense of curiosity to see what’s in the bag never truly fades away as we get older. But the willingness to put any effort into it certainly does. We get bogged down in our everyday lives. We’re interested in what’s in the bag, but we’re certainly not going to go out of our way to find out.
As 2020 (mercifully) fades into history, and 2021 arrives, it’s a great time to consider life insurance options. Especially if you don’t have any. I fully understand that if life insurance were in a bag, you’d want to know what’s inside. However, you don’t want to go through a lot of effort to see, and you certainly don’t want to submit any personal information to get it.
Years ago, before I bought insurance for myself, I can’t tell you how many times I got to the very end of one of those automatic quote generators, saw, “Speak now with an agent to get your price!” said, “Forget that junk” and hit the X button.
Now that I have my own insurance firm, I don’t have to use those same annoying tactics. I’ll show you what’s in the life insurance bag, you can decide if it’s a good fit for you, and I won’t even ask for your personal information.
If you’re curious about life options from multiple companies and want to take a look for 2021, send me an email at email@example.com. Just write your first name and your age. If you don’t want to tell me your name, just write your age.
In 24-48 hours, I’ll send you a summary of your options for you to check out. If you like what you see, we can talk further.
I know this isn’t as exciting as Christmas morning, but I also know you’re curious about what’s out there and what it costs.
Don’t wait any longer. Find out what’s in the bag and give your family the best gift this holiday season-security and peace of mind.
