Hello and good morning faithful!
Not terribly much new going on in the local insurance world, and amazingly few things need to be addressed insurance-wise.
I do want to say that I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Years. The dog and I will be going on vacation shortly (well, I’m going on vacation, the dog is going to *gasp* the kennel) and this will be my last post of 2012! (for followers of the Mayan Calendar, I guess it’s my last post ever!). We will be celebrating Christmas and New Years with some of my oldest and closest friends, and I hope that you have the opportunity to do the same!
I would like to say a little something in light of the events in Oregon and Connecticut. There is very little that we can do to directly impact the lives of those involved with what happened, but there is a lot that we can do every day to impact the lives of those around us. Be the good, be the light, and be the joy that people need to see every day. Show people that there is a better way to live. Show patience. Love others. Be caring and understanding. Encourage those around you. Show people that there IS good in the world. As the world becomes a darker place, the only way to combat that is by adding more of your own light back in.
The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Next year, I am going to re-double my efforts to show my gratitude and appreciation to first responders. These people make sacrifices every day to ensure our comfort and safety – there is no such thing as doing “too much” to show them our appreciation – you never know whose life they saved today.
My first year with the Polesky Agency has ended on some very high notes! We’ve had one of our best years ever, and were recently ranked by the home office as being in the top 10% of all Erie agents! We’ve expanded the number and types of insurance companies we can place new policies with for both personal and commercial lines, allowing us to better serve our clients by offering them more options. Our office remodeling job is nearly completed, and the new layout and look have been a smashing success! We have dramatically expanded our social media presence – LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google+ – and are even the first listing now when you Google “Erie Insurance Moon Twp”!
I would like to wrap up just by saying that I’m looking forward to a positive, productive, and prosperous 2013, and I hope that we can work together to protect the things you care about most!
All the best for 2013!
