Life insurance is exciting. I can prove it.

You hear the words “life insurance” and you think…boring. Traditionally, life insurance conjures up images of endless appointments, mountains of paperwork, and the inevitable: death. And yet, it stems from the most meaningful of human emotions. Paying for a policy that will solely benefit others is, simply put, an act of love.
