It will be interesting to see who still comes here to check in.

You may recall, back in March 2017, I had a rather eventful month. The lovely bride went in to the hospital for her 2nd hip replacement and I sold Fieber & Reilly, the insurance agency I'd owned and operated for 25 years. Her surgery, well, not the hip but other parts - namely heart - went a bit bonkers. This culminated with her being wheeled into ICU about the same time I had to leave to attend the meeting to sign the papers and pick-up the check to sell the agency. Wild day, for sure. I received 50% of the proceeds at closing, with the remaining split into two annual installments. The last being this month, March 2019. Her issues stuck around - not to the extent of that day, but we now have a close relationship with her cardiologist and pulmonologist. So lets fast forward to March 2019. I received my second - and final - installment on the sale last week. Also earned the second - and final - retention bonus. (I had to retain 90%+ of premium volume of the original book of business purchased to earn it. Industry average is mid 80s.) I hit just shy of 95%. Mission accomplished, I'd say.

This week I was told my services were no longer desired. My security pass/ID, keys, and laptop were collected... I was given a couple boxes to pack my shit and shown to the door.

The first time in my life I have ever left a job without it being my decision. The plan was to work until at least 65 - likely longer. The plan was to be able to allow the lovely bride retire, add her to my insurance, then wait it out to Medicare-time. Her issues do not allow us to be without insurance. Hell, we satisfy her deductible AND out of pocket max during April each year.

I have come to the conclusion that they executed their plan. Buy the business - have Kurt retain and solidify the business - cut him loose as the final payment is made.

Figures

You can't believe a word they say until seconds after the deal is done.

Pricks (no contract to have you still there until you are 65?)

No. Indiana is an "employment at will" state. If they don't like the color of your shoelaces, you can be terminated.
