Real quick, check out this post I just discovered from Mike Gantt:

Terrific comments, great analogy, Mike (& Chuck).  Thanks for the post and comment.  I’ve been saying similar things for years now.  Boy, I hope insurance companies, IMO’s, FMO’s, large agencies, etc. start agreeing – and doing! – as well. Now that we seem to be emerging from the crash, and that people around the industry, and the markets as a whole, seem to agree that “it’s a new world out there”, this is a PERFECT opportunity to execute on that changed mindset.  And there are LOTS OF VENDORS out there waiting patiently – and with very good deals available – for now anyway…

Love to hear your take.  Agree?  Disagree?
