Episode 117 – Getting insurance today is overwhelming. For this reason over 15 years ago, Rebecca Bloomfield and her husband and partner Jerry Pearlstein, decided to use their experience and empathy to open an insurance agency serving the entrepreneur.
They provide health, life, long-term care and disability insurance to people who don’t have a company providing these benefits.
Rebecca is particularly concerned about women who so often don’t think of themselves. A little knowledge and preplanning can prevent a catastrophe that many of us don’t even see coming.
