September is Life Insurance Awareness Month

There are so many questions, and often we get paralyzed and do nothing.
Deciding on life insurance is not the most fun thing in the world but it is a lot less
painful than trying to figure out how to afford a loved one’s funeral.
If you are married or partnered, with or without children, a single parent, a stay-at-home parent, an empty nester, a retiree, a business owner, or just an
individual who would like to leave a legacy, YOU NEED LIFE INSURANCE!
