Our guest on the program today is Mindy Lamont, the creator and founder of The Insurist. Mindy calls The Insurist a “down-to-earth approach” to insurance and employee benefits.

After a 14-year career in one of the largest insurance companies in the world, Mindy decided to walk away from the big corporate life and start her own insurance business, selling to groups online. Her more authentic and irreverent approach attracts a diverse crowd of clients, which has driven growth and expansion into a variety of product areas.

I invited Mindy to share her inspiring journey of becoming an independent broker as well as her unique approach to insurance. Find out how she was able to successfully evolve The Insurist from an online term life company to a successful group benefits advisor using old-world agency management techniques coupled with new-world technology. She will also share the company’s next area of expansion into a commonly overlooked but vitally important market segment.
