On this 65th edition of the podcast, Jim Thomson of AllState Insurance is my guest. Jim guides us through, with his expertise, the ins and outs on how we can protect our families by choosing the right coverages. Being a lifelong resident of Arlington Heights and raising his family here, Jim Thomson is our hometown agent.
Protecting our loved ones is something we work to do each and everyday. Having the right insurance policies in place is imperative to achieve that protection. With over 25 years of experience, helping families reach their goals, Jim Thomson will come up with the strategies, for you, to properly manage your financial goals and insurance needs. Jim is a certified CPA, Life Underwriter, and Financial Planner with a Masters Degree in Business Administration at the University of Chicago.
During this information packed interview we go over the misconceptions in today’s insurance world. “I don’t have much to lose so I don’t need coverage” is the biggest misconception the public has according to Jim when it comes to coverage. Young people today need to understand the risks of not being properly insured. Jim shares a story of his daughter and the importance in having renters insurance while leasing an apartment. Things can get costly if you are not protected.
Jim also walks us through the initial consultation with him at his office. His refreshing approach of “client first” is what the insurance industry is desperately in need of. Someone who is willing take the time to learn about you and your family in order to achieve your financial goals.
