Getting the Right Insurance for Retirement and Security with Jon Thurmond

Jon Thurmond is a managing partner at Axis Financial, a financial services company that helps customers get insured and plan for medical emergencies, retirement, and wealth transfer. Before becoming a managing partner, Jon was a full-time insurance agent from 2005 to 2019. This experience allowed him to specialize in cold-calling, direct sales, and customer relations. Jon earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Management from Southern Adventist University.

 

Jon joins me today to describe the importance of finding the right insurance product that meets your current and future needs. He shares his book-selling experience and recounts how he wound up in insurance. He explains different types of life insurance and their respective benefits and drawbacks. He discusses why insurance agents want the best products for their clients. Jon also describes how expensive insurance can get if you smoke tobacco or do not disclose that to your agent.

 

"You can have all the life insurance in the world, but if you don't have the money to pay the premium, you're not going to afford that life insurance." - Jon Thurmond
