It’s almost wedding season! So what should newlyweds be talking about besides table decor and the dj? Long-term financial plans and insurance=for real.

Ahh..marriage! Love and happiness are in the air! And who wants be “Debbie Downer” and talk about financial solidarity and compatibility when there are more important things to discuss, like who’s going to catch the bouquet and what the theme of the wedding should be? But after the wedding, more people break up over finances than over infidelity. So it’s better to have a solid plan and discussion over money before marriage than afterwards when it really gets hard to untangle assets. To make this conversation easier, from the experts at CNBC: These financial advisors give newlyweds the ultimate wedding gift: financial compatibility

Liquor liability taking flight for this summer.

Liquor liability extends to exclusive lodges and cabins off the beaten path for the truly luxury travel experience. Make sure your customers are protected! We encourage fishing lodges, B N B’s and high-end adventure experiences to purchase liquor liability insurance to protect their businesses.

We brought this new liquor liability market to Alaska. Currently, they are quoting monoline liquor and packages with general liability. They are working on getting both the packaged property, and an excess liability offering onboard as well in the near future. Since they are a brokerage market rather than binding, please give them a bit more lead time on your submissions. We are very happy to find a new solution with others exiting the Alaska marketplace and we hope they come to realize what we already know, that Alaska is the best! Send all new business requests to

Riding the Rails-Summertime Adventure increases local business

I have lived in Alaska for over 40 years, and it wasn’t until last week that I rode the rails on the Alaska Railroad down to Seward for the day. I hopped the train with my out-of-town guests and I am so glad I did! I saw a side of Alaska that I have never seen, and I got to enjoy the luxury of it as a passenger and tourist instead of as the driver and guide. I spent my time enjoying my family and got to narrate what I knew and got to share my local knowledge with awe-struck people from Miami, Europe and middle America who were blown away by the amazing Alaskan wilderness, something I take for granted every single day. It was awesome to see our state through their eyes with such wonderment. I got to see my daughter shine with her own knowledge as she explained about local fauna and history as we rode along, telling the people around us what a magical place we get to call home is all about. And then we got to see moose, eagles, and even a bear popped out in the upper snowy mountains to thrill us all. If you haven’t had a chance, take a day or even a few to ride the rails-enchantment in your own state awaits!

The great thing about train rides is that it encourages tourism, which brings people to local stores, restaurants and local activities which all need insurance! Contact your local tourist locations and see if they need some insurance updates to help them cover their business needs.
