Tweetable Quotes:

  • “One mistake we made last year is we had so many speakers that we did not leave enough room for networking. So this year, we’re kind of doing the opposite. And we were purposefully having networking times and that sort of thing. We’ve got some pretty cool ideas and stuff that’s gonna give some people who don’t come to some serious FOMO. So it’ll be a lot of fun.” – Bradley Flowers
  • “The reason a lot of people want to insure families is because traditionally, typically, families have extra lines of insurance they buy.” – Bradley Flowers
  • “I tell my team all the time, if somebody’s upset with you, don’t get offended. Like, don’t let them cuss you out. To me, that’s like the bar. But you’ve got to let them vent a little bit. Everybody hates insurance. Even me, right?“ – Bradley Flowers
