Recommended Services and Tools

Wondering what are some of the great resources that I use and recommend for consumers, insurance agent and those running their own website?? Here’s a list of services and resources that we’ve found useful and you may as well in no particular order:

Note: some of these companies do provide affiliate payments to help support this site if you purchase through the link. However, this does not increase the fees of these resources.  This is a great way for you to get a service you can use and to support the information that I provide.

Consumer Resources:

ValChoice applies advanced information technology, sophisticated quantitative analysis and data mining to calculate the value of the insurance you buy. Most importantly,ValChoice’s analysis is easy-to-understand. ValChoice shows how good every insurance company is using a fuel-gauge-style image. For the first time ever, every consumer of insurance can know if the company they are buying insurance from is charging a fair price for the protection and service they deliver. ValChoice is independent and unbiased. The ValChoice rating system is not influenced by insurance companies.


College Funding Ideas:

If you need help learning about ways to fund college tuition, the best resource on the web is The College Solution by Lynn O’Shaughnessy.    Here’s Lynn’s description of what her site is about: My chief goal is to help families with teenagers become smart college shoppers as they search for schools. I also focus on educating high school counselors, college consultants and financial professionals, who need to understand how they can assist families with evaluating their choices and bringing their college costs down.  College is often the second biggest expense in a family’s life, but high school counselors and consultants usually don’t understand how to make college more affordable and neither do financial advisers.

Disclosure:  Please note that some of the links above are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, and I may earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase.  Please understand that I have personal experience with all of these companies, and recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions we make if you decide to buy something.  Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.
