Stop us if you’ve heard this one – A life insurance agent was meeting with his client about the policy coverage for her husband. The agent asks if she knew the present value of her husband’s policy and she didn’t understand what he meant. To explain, the agent says “What would you get if your husband dies?” The wife thinks for a moment and then replies, “Probably a poodle, I guess.” (Bah dum tiss)
Why are we starting with a hokey opening joke about insurance straight out of the Shecky Green era Borscht Belt school of comedy? Because the writing staff here doesn’t know bupkis about how to combine football and insurance into a working simile or metaphor to honor this week’s special guest star Chris May, the former USA football great and current Insurance Aficionado.
In this week’s episode of The Overlap Podcast, our boys Sid and Keith sit down and do a deep dive into the Art of Setting Expectations (something our boys clearly didn’t do with the writing staff if they thought we knew anything about football … other than Dick Butkus. And we really only know that because it’s hilarious.) Chris will take our boys through an ideal world with clearly set expectations that have basis in real-world on-the-ground data and facts and help them strategize ways to take those expectations from concept to concrete reality.
So, huddle up and hear the plays being called during this week’s Overlap Podcast – we can assure you that it’ll be a definite slam dunk … er, wrong sports ball … hole in … nope, not that one either … grand slam … nope, that’s Denny’s … … … … … insert sports ball reference of choice. (Yeah, that works, right? We’re going with that.)
