Here's What Our Readers Are Saying:


I had been reading InsNerds long before running into Tony on Reddit (and long before becoming a writer and editor). InsNerds is ran by motivated, intelligent, and all-consuming insurance nerds. They're knowledgeable about all parts of the industry and are indispensable when it comes to career advise or insurance topics. It's rare to come across anyone so enthusiastically engaged with anything you might present regarding insurance, and that enthusiasm is contagious.

I have been following your posts for a few months and I really think you are doing a great service to our industry. I have been in the insurance business since 2004 in roles from the company side, wholesale and brokerage. There is a huge need for what you are promoting and I support and salute you for stepping out and sharing the message and resources. If I can in any way ever help in my region, through my reach (Pittsburgh, Western PA & West Virginia) please use me as a resource!
