What does a typical day look like for you? I have an ‘up & at ‘em’, it’s-a-new-day attitude. Breakfast with the family, chasing lively children, work and the gym before dinner at home. Early to bed, early to rise!

What type of coverage do consumers often forget to purchase? Personal umbrella policies provide additional liability limits starting at $1 million of coverage. These policies are relatively inexpensive, and can certainly help protect your assets if a major liability event occurs. Inland marine policies may provide better protection of property, such as jewelry, guns, fine art, small tools, family heirlooms, etc. These items often have limited coverage on a homeowner policy.
