Your Workers Comp mentor is someone that you owe a large favor.  We sometimes forget how much that special person in our business lives meant to us.

I was actually searching through websites that had given the J&L Risk Management Consultants  a bad backlink.  In other words, if a website has a link to another website that is not good, that harms the resulting website.   I found out that the website and associated vendor had closed down.

The website left behind a video that would say Thanks for being our customers in a special way.   The video was from Youtube.  I watched it and was amazed.   The video was of Mr. Rogers receiving a lifetime achievement award.  His acceptance speech was the best one that I have ever seen in many years.  You can find the video here – worth a watch.   This was award show TV in its finest hour.

We have all had great mentors.  My workers comp mentors are very special to me.   How about yours?   All you have to do is take 10 seconds and think of the people that have helped you in your insurance and/or Workers Comp career.  If you watch the video, you will understand more about what I am about to say.

OK, for 10 seconds, close your eyes, stop working, and think of the workers comp mentors that have helped you in career, go ahead, I will keep the time on my watch.    Keep thinking and appreciating them.

Your mentors are lucky to have mentored you and vice-versa.

My two main workers comp mentors are both deceased.   Ok, so go ahead and watch the video and then watch the other associated Mr. Rogers videos.  The videos are all great.

Thank for thinking of your mentors.  They will appreciate that you have been thinking of them more than you know.
