After the story about Goldilocks and her trespassing in the Bears Den broke in the tabloids there was a storm of controversy. The Bears agreed not to press charges and ultimately became good friends and mentors of the charming if somewhat ditzy girl.

The Bear family owned Three Bears Insurance, a successful brokerage firm specializing in providing customized insurance and risk management solutions to Small and Medium Businesses. Based on her EXPERIENCE in testing porridge, chairs and beds, Goldilocks and the Bears realized the girl had a natural talent for finding the right fit. They took her on as an apprentice broker working alongside Baby Bear. Once she had completed the necessary hours of community service for her earlier transgressions and an intense program of EDUCATION, the Bears hired her as an Insurance Broker.

On the surface the job seemed simple and easy. Meet the client, work with them to gain as much of an understanding of their business as possible and identify and analyze their business risk. Sometimes she would identify risks that clients weren’t even aware of but which they needed to know about. Many of the things that kept them awake at night were easily dealt with once they were identified. In reality, there was many hours of work done behind the scenes in order to deliver the correct advice. Not the least of these tasks was selection of and negotiation with the right insurer.

Two of her first clients were the First and Second of the Three Little Pigs. Unfortunately for them, the houses built of straw and sticks did get blown away, but were rebuilt with the necessary building code upgrades all paid for. Luckily for them, she understood that the buildings, being older, would probably not be up to code if they had to be rebuilt. She had purchased additional coverage for that eventuality. Throughout the claims process she exhibited considerable EMPATHY which made the process, although still stressful, a lot easier to manage

The Third Little Pig had previously discussed risk management options with Goldilocks taking in to account the peril posed by the Big Bad Wolf and decided to build with bricks so he suffered no loss. He relied on her EXPERTISE!

The moral to this story is to keep looking until you find the right Insurance Broker for your needs, and then listen to their advice so you can make an informed decision.

Thus endeth the story but not the lesson, which is why Heather Cournoyer, CCIB, CIP is the right broker for you!
