Hi, I’m Chris Plante. I’m a licensed Life Agent in the State of California. I offer personal, one to one service with clients of all ages and income levels. I believe in securing a worry free (at least when it comes to leaving something for posterity) future.
We don’t buy life insurance for ourselves. We buy it for those who stay on after us. I get the response many times from people, “my kids can tend to their own, before I’m dead I’ll have spent as much as I could on myself.” The problem with that, is the perpetually of selfishness. These same people don’t seem to care about that, either. Someone who buys life insurance is saying to the world, “I care about all this, and I want to make it a better place,” so much so, that they are willing to do without a little bit while they live in order to give back. But it is not just the money they give back, it’s the ideal of sacrifice, an ideal that the living lock on to and carry forward to the generations after them.
The recipients of life policies don’t just benefit from the money, then. They benefit from the maturity of the one who thought enough to leave something behind. And they may go on to garnish some of that maturity themselves. Long after the money is gone you will find a better class of human in its wake. More thoughtful. More participatory. More sensitive. The act of buying the policy can inspire this kind of behavior. Not always, but often. I like to think that more often than not, since I tend to lean toward optimism and hope. But then I have life insurance.
