about Whole Lotta $$$ in This MoFo (Book I)
No business owner begins their entrepreneurial journey with the vision of managing a benefits plan for employees. But while fulfilling their company mission, whether a small business or a publicly traded company, today, business leaders are forced to wade through countless solutions and vendors for their employee benefits plan.
Unfortunately, the employee benefits industry is littered with bullsh*t: vendors misrepresenting their solutions, agents with conflicting incentives from their clients, products that aren’t affordable, and regulations that don’t fix the actual problems. In an age where recruitment and retention are more important and complicated than ever, a benefits package is a necessity but also an opportunity not to be missed.
