When was the last time you reviewed your insurance policies?  Have you ever put together an actual insurance plan to make sure you aren’t missing anything?  Our next guest says many people tend to put off insurance planning because it’s just not a lot of fun. And, he adds, that is unfortunate because insurance should be viewed as a valuable tool in your overall financial plan.

Mike Switzer interviews Peter Pigeon is a Certified Financial Planner with Hobbs Group Advisors in Columbia, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
