Returning to Some Core Competencies
“You got to know when to hold them and know when to fold them.” These are definitely some wise words from the song The Gambler.
Many of you know that I have a background, besides my marketing jobs in the high tech world, in the insurance and financial services business and that I spent many years as an agent for Farmers Insurance. I’m licensed for Property & Casualty and Life & Health Insurance in Oregon and Washington and have my Series 6 and 63 securities licenses for offering variable life insurance policies, annuities and both qualified and non-qualified retirement plans (including 401(k) rollovers and setting up traditional and Roth IRAs).
For the past eighteen months I’ve been helping small businesses sort out their marketing needs in terms of markets, messages and media. But it’s been slow going and the demand for marketing strategy consulting hasn’t been as strong as I’d originally anticipated. So while it’s been fun, and I’m pleased to have helped a fair number of clients, it’s just not keeping me busy enough and there’s only so much time one can spend on social media activities without going a little stir crazy!
I’ve thus made the decision to cease operating Jon Turino Marketing + Connections and have taken a position as a Financial Representative with Country Financial, an 88 year old company with A+ superior ratings from all of the major firms (including A.M. Best).
I did a lot of research before choosing to ally myself with Country Financial and I’m certain that I’ve made a great choice. Country Financial offers a broad range of insurance products from auto, home and life insurance to long term care and Medicare supplemental policies. Plus a wide range of financial products to support customers in creating their retirement plans and providing products for building and growing the assets within those plans.
I’ll no longer be keeping the very popular networking calendar on my website going since there are more than a couple of alternatives you can use and I’ll no longer be taking marketing consulting jobs so that I can focus all of my efforts on helping my new Country Financial clients achieve the financial security they need, want and deserve.
Thank you all for your support of Jon Turino Marketing + Connections over the past 18 months. You’ve been great at providing positive feedback, using my services when you could and buying the worksheets, online marketing seminar course and The A to Z Blog Book (all of which are still available for you to order). But it’s time for me to fold the rest of the operation and return to my future in the insurance and financial services business.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me, beginning November 4th, 2013, at 503-492-2228 or at firstname.lastname@example.org and please do visit my new website at http://www.countryfinancial.com/jon.turino. I look forward to serving you in my new old profession.
