The importance of insurance
Let’s face it, life is full of risk. Risk when you start a business, risk when you buy a home, risk when you travel overseas. But does it stop you making decisions about the way you choose to live your life? Does it prevent you from taking a step forward in your life because of what may go wrong? Insurance is designed to help us keep living the lives we want with the intention of minimizing your risk, live without fear! Live without ‘what if’ … what if we get sick travelling? What if we get a house fire? What if our business gets robbed?
Insurance alleviates the worry and ‘what if’ about travelling overseas or starting a new business, when you have insurance that’s your safety net to going ‘all in’ with your life. Without business insurance for example your whole life’s work could potentially come to nothing if you don’t protect your asset.
The real purpose of insurance
Regional Insurance Professional’s David Cahill says “It’s imperative that we stress the importance of insurance to families. I think the real purpose of insurance gets lost sometimes and seen as just an expense. People forget the impact on their business and therefore their family if they don’t have cover or the correct cover.”
“I like to think of insurance like a community rainy day fund or charity that we all contribute to, to take care of individuals in time of need. The purpose of insurance gets a little bit lost by people as they concentrate on the expense of the ‘grudge’ purchase and not the underpinning of their lives, both health-wise and financially. I’ve seen first hand that the stress of having insufficient insurance cover, or worse, no cover at all, and I can tell you it’s far worse than the stress of budgeting for the protection of your business and your family.
“Now, we’ve been in the insurance industry for over 20 years and in that time served thousands of clients. Of course, not everyone suffers the ill fate of getting struck by a tragedy of an event, but I can assure you those of my clients who have found themselves in a bad situation have not regretted investing in insurance.”
Why get insurance?
Top motivations for our clients getting insurance are:
- Protect your family
- Protect yourself and your work and or home
- Minimise risk
- Peace of mind
- Ability to re-build your home or business in the event of an extraordinary event
Insurance shouldn’t be seen as an expense but as a safety net that allows you to live risk free and re-build yourself if and when you need to.
Like most policies it’s a good idea to do a health check on your policies once every 12 months (or any time there’s a change in your situation) to make sure you’re getting what you need in the event an extraordinary situation were to occur.
