The Magician

May 31, 2011

We don’t have top hats.  No bunnies, no magic wands, no pretty assistants.

However, we can work magic.  You need to figure out how to shave off a dollar here and there just to make ends meet?  Zap!

Looking to maximize how much life insurance you can get without breaking the bank?  Oui-la!

Involved in an accident on Christmas Eve and need to get your car towed and a rental car?  Poof!

We perform magic tricks all the time.  It may not be pulling a rabbit out of a hat, or sawing our assistant in half, but we know magic, and we make it happen every day.

Make it a great day!

We all do it.  Whether it’s work and a home life, two kinds of work, work & home and a relationship, we all do it.

Juggling is an art; there’s something very mezmerizing about being able to maintain more than one thing going at a time.  Some people are better at it than others, but almost all of us do it in one form or another.

The artistic part comes in when you figure out how much you can handle and you toe that line;  as long as none of the pins hit the ground you’re good.  The fun is finding that line between what you can handle and what you can’t.  Then testing it repeatedly until you find the line has moved.  Then, you test that line all over again.

Go for it….test your line today.  See how many pins you can keep aloft!

Make it a great day!!

When you go to a doctor, do you second guess him? 

When he suggests that you take X for a month, do you counter with a different prescription? 

No, you don’t.  You take his direction.  You take the medication prescribed.  Then, in a month, you reap the rewards of trusting your doctor.

Why should any other professional relationship be different? 

Make it a great day!! 🙂


When cutting corners isn’t called for…

May 23, 2011

Let’s face it; few people are flourishing financially right now.  If you don’t play for a major sports team or if you’re not in the entertainment industry, chances are you’ve seen a drop in your income/worth.  It’s ok, we’re all going through it.

Cutting coupons when you go to the grocery store is a great way to save some money and I have several friends that swear by it.  Researching a good and following trends to ensure you’re getting the best price possible when you purchase something is never a bad idea. 

Here’s where it gets tricky though; make sure you’re not settling for a lesser product.  Substituting a no-name brand of soda for your Diet Coke fix is certainly not going to harm you; dropping your health insurance or lowering your auto liability limits/deductibles isn’t smart. 

There are other ways of saving you a few dollars here and there; if you drop your health insurance, and then you fall going down some stairs, well now things are about to get exponentially expensive.  If you drop your physical damage coverages from your auto insurance and then accidentally rear end someone who stops very quickly on the freeway, well guess what; now you and your money is on the hook for repairing that other vehicle as well as the one he bumped into because you hit him.

Here at Three County Insurance, we have may different companies that we write business through to ensure that we match your insurance needs with your financial means; we’ve been struggling through the same financial drought you have, and we’re prepared to do what it takes to help you save without exposing your assets.

Make it a great day!


Fresh vs. Stale

May 20, 2011

There is nothing wrong with taking yourself and your work seriously.  It’s what puts food on your table, how you pay your bills.  It’s a big deal and should be treated as such.

Sometimes, a little levity will go a long way in dealing with a business associate or customer.  We all (most of us anyway) have jobs and understand how important they are, etc.  But, when you can squeeze in a laugh, or mix in a funny story while working with somebody, you will not only stand out in a positive light, but you will often find that people will go out of their way to help you more often because you know how to keep things light.

It’s ok to take your work/job seriously.  Just never forget that when you mix in a touch of personality and character, you will stand out and chances are benefit from it.

Enjoy your weekend and looking forward to blogging post apocalypse!!!



Tick Tock Tick Tock

May 19, 2011

The one commodity that everyone has in common is time.  My time is just as valuable as your time, and yours is as valuable as the next person, and so on.

There are times when we leap to the assumption that our time is either MORE valuable than someone elses’ , or we can alter time by making a big enough scene to require more attention.

Once the moment comes and goes, take a step back and assess the situation; more often than not, your time WASN’T more valuable than someone elses’.  Chances are, whatever HUGE deal you were encountering could have been avoided by a little work on your own time.  Then, it would not have become such a big deal to require more of my time, thereby saving both of us some time.

So, plan ahead.  Look at what you can do to be a little proactive in your approach to things.  You never know, it may even save you a little time.
