Change doesn’t have to be hard, but it is almost always harder than doing nothing. There’s an emotional barrier to it because to have a chance at something new, you have to give up the thing that’s familiar. People don’t like to do that, even if they’re not crazy about the familiar thing.
But, even though change is often stressful, people still make changes all the time. Why? Because, sometimes, the long, ongoing pain of keeping things the same is worse than the temporary stress of making a change. The same holds true for choosing an insurance agent. It’s always easier to stick with the devil that you know, except when it’s not. Sometimes, staying really is more painful than switching. Sometimes, even though change is hard, it’s time to look for a new agent.
When our clients first made the move to our agency, it was usually for one of the following 3 reasons. See if any of them apply to you.
1. You’re disappointed with the amount of attention you get.
2. You’re frustrated that a claim didn’t go well.
3. You’re tired of writing checks every month without really understanding what you’re paying for.
