Recorded just after the New Year, I am so very excited to finally be able to release this one, recorded with my good friends, Ted & Arleen Taveras! I have known these two for over 10 years, and although we have worked closely on projects throughout the years, I have never sat down behind the mic with them! These two have a successful podcast and have interviewed hundreds of folks through the years, but I was excited to get them talking about themselves for once!
Listen To The Full Episode:
Here is a bit about these two…

In 2017, the 20th anniversary year, the company launched the Spot On Insurance (SOI) podcast—the place for insurance professionals to get weekly podcasts covering innovative solutions for the industry. Arleen co-hosts the podcast with her husband Ted.
Arleen is considered a leading authority in insurance compliance and licensing
regulations. She is a past member of the National Association of Insurance Brokers’ Licensing Task Force, and the Texas Surplus Lines Association Legislative and Recruiting Committees and has been a member of the Society of Insurance Licensing Administrators (SILA) since 1993.
