Thanks for visiting Island of Freedom.

Who Am I?

My name is Robert Stevens. I’ve been in the insurance and financial industry for over 20 years. I attended Syracuse (Class of 78) and shortly after graduating started as an independent agent in NYC. I got my start with P&C lines but have been active in most all areas of insurance and financial advice since. I’ve traveled the country and have been fortunate enough to meet many wonderful people along the way, both coworkers and clients. I have been part of an agency, sold my own agency and have helped many others with agency marketing, strategy, mergers and acquisitions. It’s been a fun ride. Today, I take a much slower pace. I “tinker” around with consulting which is typically reserved to previous industry connections.

Although I’m well versed on agency marketing, including Internet and social media, I’ve never taken part on a personal level. I’ve created this website (and my social profiles) to scratch the itch the industry has created for me over the years now that I have a bit more time on my hands.

Site Goals

In the header I use the term “Insurance and Financial Ramblings”. That is pretty much what I’ll have here. Some posts will be long and others will be only a few words. It might be a bit random at times which actually fits me to a tee. My goal is to help others achieve the security and financial freedom that can result from a solid insurance and financial plan. Keeping with my random claim I will offer content that will serve both the consumer audience as well as insurance and financial pros. I plan to write about whatever I have on my mind on any given day. Hopefully, it is helpful to some of you out there.

If you have any questions or recommendations feel free to connect with me via email or one of my social media profiles.

Thanks For Visiting!


PS – Very special thanks go out to Des and Kevin for all the help getting this thing up.
