An event that will happen. Yes, one day I will die, I don’t know how or when but I do know it will happen. I have spent time, energy, and prayer preparing for what will happen to me during the five days after I die. I believe I have a truly clear picture of what I will experience based on my Faith during the five days after I die.
But until now I have not invested any time, energy, or any resourcing in preparing for what will happen here on earth during the five days after I die. What happens during those five days will be all caused by me. I am the one who died everyone else must live through it, but I have no way of letting them know when the five days will be so they can be prepared. I have been amazed at how much gets done during those five days after you die. Burial arrangements, local and out-of-state travel, services, flowers, and of course food. For many, time slows down during those five days after a loved one dies, for others, it’s all just a blur.
I have been blessed with a long sales and sales management career. Worked for some amazing companies and even one University. Most of the time I have had life insurance within my benefits package. Many times, I would pay extra to bump it up to the max available. Because there was always something in the near future that just must be covered if something were to happen. House payments, high school fees, then college tuition, the horse business, then the wedding, the first new house, and then the grandson. All things I desperately wanted to be here for and determined to help provide for no matter what it takes from me. Success: we got it all covered and that grandson is a world changer for sure.
So now what is left to cover is the five days after I die. As an independent sales coach, I do not have a corporate benefits package anymore and my last employer did not have portable or convertible life insurance. No problem, someday I will just make some calls and purchase a little insurance, someday. But with life insurance purchase time works against you, earlier is always better you can get too late.
Well as fate so often has its way, I ended up coaching a group of insurance sales agents. A rag-tag group of energetic hungry sales miss fits who were starving for cash. So was I, so we got along very well, I learned a lot from them and together we created some remarkable success. Our success came when we focused on those five days after we die. Because we all have the same needs to be covered during the five days after we die, everyone. Some accounts had a lot more in the near future to cover just as I did earlier in my life. But everyone has the five days after you die that need to be addressed.
The experience impacted me so that I decided to get my insurance license and join the band of miss fits who were doing the second most important job I know of here on earth. Helping others assemble the correct resources needed for the five days after they die. The amount is different for everyone, no two people have the same issues to cover. But everyone has a list they want to cover.
My question to you is have you prepared for or even considered the resources needed during the five days after you die?
If not, would you like some help with that? I know some people who can help.
The first time you deliver the correct resources needed to the family, during the five days after a loved one has died will change you forever
