Steve Anderson's Summary

I’m a very curious person.

It’s one of the reasons I’ve always liked the insurance industry. It’s given me a chance to understand how a variety of different businesses work because providing the best insurance coverage for any business imaginable required that I understand what they do.

You can often discover what a person is like by the TV shows they watch and some of my favorites are “Unwrapped” on the Food Network and “How it’s Made” on the Discover Channel – basically I like just about any show that explains how something is done.

That said, sometimes curiosity can have a downside. Think of George Banks in the movie “Father of the Bride”. You may remember the scene where George finds his daughter’s new in-law’s checkbook while digging through their desk and gets caught. He got in mega trouble for being too snoopy. Fortunately, I’ve never been that extreme but I have been known to make my wife a little crazy at times!

Yet this curiosity is what drives me to explore, experiment, test, write and talk about how existing and emerging technology products and processes can help insurance agents help their clients.

I’ve worn many hats in my career -- insurance company underwriter, insurance agent and producer, programmer (for a very short period of time), writer and speaker. Over the years, I’ve developed a unique ability to turn technology geek-speak into easily understood information that helps agency owners and staff understand technology and how to use it effectively (and even profitable!) in their organization.

And I’m proud that I am a practical and hands-on person as I travel throughout the country teaching, training and helping agents embrace technology and get to the next level of where they want to be.

So what’s my driving passion? It’s simply finding the best technology tools available to help insurance agents and the insurance industry more effectively build, manage and profit in their businesses.

Curious, isn’t it?

    Team Members: Steve Anderson, Sissi Haner

    As I travel across the country talking to insurance agents, the question I hear often is, "Can you just give us a couple quick tips on the top things we can do right now to make our agency more profitable and effective?"

    The answer is, YES! As an authority on insurance technology as well as a consultant and editor, I've spent my working career discovering the cool new tools, websites, gizmos and gadgets that can make an agent's life easier, more productive, and more competitive.

    My weekly emailed newsletter — Steve Anderson's TechTips — highlights one new "thing" each week that just might help your agency increase its productivity and effectiveness: TechTips is short, to the point, and quick to read.

    After working with literally hundreds of agencies of every shape and size, I've come up with what I believe are the best agency technology resources available anywhere.
