3 reasons enrolling face to face is still king

By: Mike Dahlinger, Regional Sales Representative, Michigan

Today, we digest information in ever-smaller capsules; whether it’s a tweet, a Facebook post or simply scanning headlines, that’s often all the information we take in on topics.

You may not think you need an enrollment firm, but here’s why you do

Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should. Just because you can dribble a basketball, doesn’t mean you should quit your day job to become a professional basketball player. Likewise, maybe you’re a broker who can organize and conduct an enrollment, but should you be doing it?

The ties between financial, mental and physical health – and what it means for employers
