It takes time to crystallise something.
It takes effort to generate good content that withstands the test of time. There is a lot of information and data floating around on the internet. New information and updates in law or changes in geopolitics can make things irrelevant, more relevant or less so.
I aim to present timeless concepts and methodologies to my readers. Being a proponent of the design driven process, this post serves to demonstrate what it really entails. The craft, the customisation and personalised advisory service that takes effort and puts you as the client, at the centre of focus most truly.
The background for this is simply to prove that what is best, is unique to each individual as well as quantifiable based on that nuanced individuality. The situation calls for it because we are now living in a world with multiple considerations, competing priorities and budgetary resource constraints. How then to strike a balance and make a decision?
Here it goes!
Going into the granular, do get hold of the full benefit illustration (because now the guaranteed yield is specified upfront) and as much product information as possible (information junkie behaviour). Specifically for insurance, comparefirst.sg is a decent starting point to select some relevant products.
I am the kind of person, who can see that 2 persons with different nuanced weightings over same relevant factors, debating over the same product as adversaries, yet find both equally valid in their own individuality. In Clifton’s Strengths Finder, my strengths are focus, analytics, intellection, learning and individualisation. Took me a while to understand what individualisation means. But it struck me on realising how design driven process resonated with me when I understood its principles. I do not have the strength of woo (strength for salespersons) so that is why I tell people that I can give good advice but I can’t sell. A bit of an oxymoron, yes I am analytically personable. Here’s me pouring out my soul and letting the world know that I can help you think, and make a decision. It is not my nature to force issues down your throat or deploy any form of emotional blackmail to do something you are not comfortable with. That’s the truth. Enough said.
This methodology can be applied to plenty, know that it can lead towards specific advice. Last but not least, the advisor rep you are working with, who puts in effort to work this process through with you, deserves to be remunerated somehow. You know what I do, let me know how I can be of service.
