Ep.238 | Jonathan Burke | The Best Insurance You Don’t Have

Ever catch yourself saying that? You know, you hear a news story about the smash-and-grab in a city parking lot…or the car following a lady home from her grocery store trip…or the drunk dude who just randomly landed a punch on an innocent pedestrian, sending him to the hospital with a serious head injury…

“Nah, that won’t ever happen to me. My shopping areas have great security…I live in a safe area…I’m not out late at night…”
