Greetings from Orlando, where I’m attending the 2009 NAIFA Convention and Career Conference. I’m here in part to interview 2009 John Newton Russell Memorial Award winner Larry M. Lambert, CLU, CFP, RFC, chairman of LBL Insurance Services in Long Beach, Calif. Lambert received one of the industry’s very top honors at a gala event Tuesday night. You can read more about Lambert and the keys to his success in the October issue of Life Insurance Selling.
Being here also offers the opportunity to attend a variety of educational seminars and hear some top-flight speakers. One of the featured speakers during Tuesday morning’s main platform was Michael Duffy, chief political correspondent for TIME magazine. The beltway insider offered his insight into the Obama administration, which just hit the 250-day mark in office.
