I just thought I'd better post something on here since it has been a while since I posted. I'm down with a nasty cold/flu, but thankfully it's after session.

I lost a client this month, so I'm back down to three. That stinks, but still doing well enough financially. I suppose that's the disadvantage of being your own boss. When times are good, you get all the benefit, but when things take a step back, only I feel the difference.

Session concluded a couple of weeks ago without anything of interest happening for/to the insurance industry. The focus of the legislature this year was property taxes, unemployment insurance, legislative ethics and a few other things (including allowing Hoosiers to purchase alcohol on election day...woo hoo!)

Well, I just thought I needed to post something. I am meeting next week with another lobbyist to discuss joining/merging my firm with his. He's an older fella that is eventually looking to retire, so I think it behooves me to at least talk with him to see if there is some overlap and benefit for the both of us. Wish me luck!

Keep the notes coming for all of you who are looking to get into lobbying. I really enjoy your notes and hope that I can, in some small way, help you on your career path.

Just need a little sunshine and time in the boat now.
