An expert, industry leader, and author in the insurance industry with three decades of rich experience, Jeffery Arnold is the President of RIGHTSURE, INC. He is a master of insurance mergers and acquisitions, managing deals ranging from six figures to more than $100 million.
He has authored Four Number One Best-Selling Books on Insurance and Technology, including: “The Art of the Insurance Deal” and “How to Beat Your Insurance Company”. His writings and leadership focus on reengineering the insurance environment to be more policyholder-friendly. Jeffery gives his audiences pages full of insights on How to Reduce your Insurance Premiums and How to effectively Beat Insurance Companies. He has successfully managed deals ranging from a few hundred thousand to more than one hundred million dollars.
Founded in 2007, RIGHTSURE is an Insurance Technology Firm whose platform offers The End Of Insurance Shopping.
His latest venture is a newly created platform called Rateguard: A DONE-FOR-YOU service leveraging RIGHTSURE’S award-winning and innovative technology that intends to END INSURANCE SHOPPING as we know it and disrupt the entire insurance ecosystem.
A Deep-rooted Passion for the Insurance Technology Space
Jeffery’s career in the Insurance Joint Ventures space started by accident. After experiencing a series of failures in Acting, Comedy, and Stage Work, he stumbled into the vertical. To make ends meet and have a steady income, he answered an Ad 31 years ago.
And that was the start of his new flourishing career. He was immersed from day one with an urge to learn, read, and discover more about this wonderfully exciting industry.
While Insurance and Tech combined can bore many, to me it is the industry of all things fun, sexy, and just plain awesome. He applied the crazy theory of Entrepreneurship to Insurance and started his new ventures.
He has been fortunate to do joint ventures with Banks, Credit Unions, Mortgage Firms, Online Search Engines, Auto Dealerships, Privately Held Money Funds, Publicly Traded Aggregators, and some neat Reinsurance stuff with billion-dollar companies.
An Exceptional Journey
RIGHTSURE dedicates its success to every single team member. The personal sacrifice and commitment of the entire team have helped the brand achieve its current position. Each team member who has come to work on a project or become a part of RIGHTSURE has invested their creative talents and contributed to their maximum potential. They have built a remarkable platform and high-energy work environment.
A Client-Centric Approach
We take care of our customers like family. The ideal client needs coverage for multiple assets, home, auto, boat, RV, motorcycle, etc. With a dedicated approach towards offering the best customer service, RIGHTSURE puts its customers at the top of everything.
It is known for our Famously Friendly Humans and if we continue to deliver an exceptional policyholder experience, our clients will continue to be our primary source of new business generation by referring others.
Challenges: The Ladder towards Growth
Rapid growth challenges all skillsets from leadership to management to patience. As RIGHTSURE continues to grow, Jeffery has to keep adjusting, improving human relations skillsets, financial discipline, vision casting, and re-recruiting its key people during the Great Resignation that all companies are facing.
A Day in the Life of Jeffery
Jeffery starts his day with a cup of coffee. After the caffeine, he checks industry reports followed by Stock
Prices of Competitors, Vendors, and Carrier Partners. One of his good friends told him years ago that EMAIL is “other people’s work”. Hence, he abides by the advice and doesn’t start his day by responding to emails. Instead, he reflects upon the legal pad of things to do, tasks to follow up on, and initiatives to move forward.
Jeffery tries to keep meetings to an absolute minimum of 30 minutes or less, most at around 15 minutes. He
believes in keeping everyone focused on the big picture. The only exception to this rule is the majority of our IT – Tech – Platform Meetings tend to go an hour each time, but we are working with all in that entire group to be more succinct.
Books: Source of Inspiration
Growing up, Jeffery was intrigued by the book – Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. In his mid-20s, he stumbled across The E-Myth by Michael Gerber. This book changed how he operated his small company and transformed his thinking about working ON the business instead of IN the business.
I have forever held fast to that mindset, as well as implemented nearly everything Michael writes about in his subsequent books. Also, he seeks inspiration by the quote, Your Goals, Minus Your doubts, Equal Your Reality- by Ralph Marston.
