Key Quotes:

  • “Just because you’re consistent with something doesn’t mean that it’s convenient for your customer. I can consistently do the same thing year in and year out. But if my customer isn’t able to get to it easily, they’re just not going to do it.” – Josh Lipstone
  • “I have to do what I always say I do, and make sure that agents out there in my agency specifically, are using the best tools of today.” – Jason Cass
  • “Never eat lunch alone, start meeting with other people that are inside of your town in your community…and ask those people, how do I get going, what should I say? What should I do?” – Jason Cass
