January is the time of the calendar year when people begin to make plans. For high school seniors, it is an awakening … after almost 13 years in the school system, they must begin to consider what path to choose to walk the day after their June Graduation.
Some students are looking at college, be it four year or community. Some are choosing trade school, to learn a craft. Others are entering the workforce. And there are those teenagers who do not have a solid plan for what will happen to them once they remove their cap and gown.
Maybe the cost of college is too prohibitive. Maybe they have simply had it with school and they do not wish to continue classroom learning. But whatever the situation, we want them to have the best future possible, and many young adults have no clue as to what careers are out there. They need guidance.

Everyone is rushed. Each day people are constantly fighting the clock and dashing through their day, crossing chores off of their checklist and scrambling to get things done. The problem with the modern speed of life, is that every responsibility is not created equal. Consumers can sometimes equate purchasing insurance with signing up for cable service or making an appointment for the dog groomer. I call it the “One and Done” mindset.
Purchasing insurance, whether for personal use (auto, home, life, umbrella, flood) or business requires much more than filling out a simple application and clicking “YES”. It is not a “one size fits all” proposition.
In my 30 plus years in the industry, I have experienced consumers who have told me stories of bad decisions that they have made when it came to purchasing insurance. So I thought this might be a good opportunity to give you some advice from a longtime “seasoned” insurance advocate.

Every Spring, when the school system begins to gear up for High School Graduation, there is huge amount of celebration and announcements concerning the Senior Class. In the lead up to the ceremony, the local community publishes a list of Universities and Trade Schools that the graduates are going to attend in the fall. And although the school systems generally do a fine job in preparing children to move onto higher education, there is a segment of every class that is at a loss what to do after the diploma is handed to them.
Maybe they cannot afford the crushing cost of college tuition. Maybe sitting in a classroom and learning for four more years is just not something they aspire to. Maybe they lack direction because there is no one there to steer them. One of the worst things that can happen is that they end up making poor choices or do nothing.
Realizing that there is a need to give these young adults some direction, and combining it with the statistic that over 400,000 jobs in t ...

As many of you are aware, Warwick Resource Group is celebrating our 151st year. We were one of the original businesses in Warwick, founded in the 1860’s when Main Street was simply a trail for tradesman and commerce to move between villages and down to New York City.
When meeting with individuals, the question that always arises is, “Wow, you’ve been around since the Civil War! How do you explain such longevity?”
There are dozens of reasons why WRG has lasted and prospered over the span of 15 decades:
The exceptional community in which our corporate office is located.
Agency principles that care deeply about the business and are not JUST involved in the day-to-day, but are always searching the horizon for the next venture.
Diversifying our insurance niches to reach out to various industries … especially offering our insured the latest policies in leading edge insurance categories such as Cyber-Security and Privacy.
