We have a special guest joining us today, April Brown, a retired law enforcement professional. And we’re having a conversation about the tricks and strategies “Joker Brokers” use to steer you into a plan that doesn’t work for you but is really in their best interest. It’s mostly deception, and what bugs us is that they are not teaching, just telling. We like to teach and inform our clients so they understand how everything works, and they know where they are going.
Charlie likes to use the analogy that these Joker Brokers are like taxi drivers who take your money, and then take you where they want you to go, you don’t have much of a choice in your destination! Listen in as we reveal some of the underlying issues of the strategies these brokers use, why they aren’t in your best interest, and what works better, much better.
And, if you have any questions, we are more than happy to answer them. Just reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, anytime!
