5:00 a.m. I’ve been getting up early this week to get a jump on the backlog of quote requests that have piled up in anticipation of ACA qualified plan options in 2014 versus current 2013 plan offerings. In addition, I tackle administrative functions for my group clients as well as prepare emails to clients who are expecting quotes and employees who are awaiting their eligibility packet for benefits. I also read and respond to any emails that came in overnight or late afternoon from clients and prospects.

7:00 a.m. When the first light begins to appear, I take the time to enjoy some cardiovascular exercise. This workout starts with some light stretches, transitioning to either a 20-mile bike ride or four-mile run. The training allows me to keep my fitness and prepare for an upcoming marathon or Ironman event. I believe when promoting wellness to clients that I should be engaged as well.
