Covering everything from how to identify the ideal organization to work for to the inherent difficulty of working alongside aggressive agents and brokers, Glazer provides a number of personal and professional anecdotes that help illustrate how she was able to achieve such a great deal of success in a constantly changing industry. As a professional who deeply understands the benefit of having a knowledgeable mentor willing to offer sage advice to those new to the field, Glazer offers her own mentorship to listeners through the minutes of her book. Noting how the field has changed over the years and that companies rarely offer the kind of training and mentoring she benefited from when she first began her career, Glazer offers advice on how newcomers to the industry can engage in self-directed training and find experienced professionals to offer the kind of guidance and advice she once received from her own professional mentors.

Insurance adjusters meet clients on the worst days of their lives, and they must be diplomatic, tactful, and ethical. The job is not only about returning phone calls and doing paperwork. Whether the case involves cargo damage, residential and business property damage, fire, fraud, burglary, or arson, it´s the job of the adjuster to get to the bottom of things. Author Jonathan L. Scott has spent more than thirty years as an adjuster. In a series of short stories, loosely based on actual insurance claims, he recalls navigating the human dimension of balancing a client´s circumstances with policy requirements and the law-and it´s never easy. All adjusters investigate, evaluate, and settle claims, but the best ones are worth their weight in gold several times over. The bad ones, however, can cause huge problems for the public and their employers. If you´ve ever been curious about the work of an insurance adjuster, read on and find out how each claim becomes its own little adventure. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joshua Bennington.

Some time ago, dogs became as interwoven in the American culture as baseball, apple pie, and the Fourth of July. In fact, in most households, dogs have even trumped evolution itself and jumped straight to being four-legged ´´humans”, adorned with human names, designer outfits, and a place at the family dinner table. They’re no longer dogs to us. They´re family! Yet, as nationally recognized, award-winning animal behaviorist and master trainer Bryan Bailey explains in his book Embracing the Wild in Your Dog, for all that man has done to carve the wolf from the wild to create a surrogate human, today´s dog is still a wolf at heart and the accompanying instincts borne from such ancestry defines how the dog approaches its world. Reflective of his extensive background - studying wolf and other predatory behaviors worldwide, working alongside law enforcement and special service dogs, training in US Navy dolphin and sea lion projects, etc. - Bailey emphasizes the damaging and paralytic problem of attaching our human traits to our pets. Believing in a fairy tale world where dogs possess the same moral consciousness and sense of altruism as attributed to humans has led to a drastic increase in leash laws, dogs being outlawed in a rising number of city and national parks, some breeds being banned in several states, an alarming escalation of aggression to humans, a rising cost in homeowner and business insurance, and a record number of clinically maladaptive dogs. Through Embracing the Wild in Your Dog, listeners will gain the knowledge and tools to activate and deactivate natural impulses and mechanisms in their dog, leading to the harmonious existence and control they’ve always dreamed of. 1.
