Today's Key Question:

Do you know someone with Marfan's Syndrome? 

The article below from Broker World could help them get life insurance.

 

 "Working parents are struggling right now. One company is trying to help by opening a daycare"

From CNN Business:

* Juggling the demands of full-time worker and full-time caregiver and educator is challenging and draining. And many working parents aren't looking forward to what might come this Fall when the school year starts. 

One employer in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is trying to relieve the pressure by quickly setting up a temporary childcare center for its employees.

  

"The Secret to Sustainable Growth Is Identifying Trends Ahead of Time"

From Entrepreneur:

* The COVID-19 pandemic has left thousands of businesses across industries struggling. No one can be sure how and when the economy will rebound, and more than 100,000 small businesses have closed forever, according to The Washington Post. It is now more vital than ever for founders to be flexible, ready to pivot, more daring and a bit more visionary. 

 

"Fund Students Instead of Systems"

From Reason:

* If a Walmart stays closed, you can take your money elsewhere. If a public school doesn't reopen, you should similarly be able to take your children's education dollars elsewhere. In fact, even if your school does reopen, you should still be able to take your children's education dollars elsewhere, because the money is for educating the child, not protecting a government monopoly.

  

"Marfan’s Syndrome"

From Broker World:

* Marfan’s has all degrees of severity, and as such some cases are insurable. Those who do not have cardiac involvement, are watched regularly and under a physician’s care and who have a normal echocardiogram and blood pressure can be offered ratable policies. Those with cardiac findings are generally not offered insurance; untreated Marfan’s patients often die in their fourth or fifth decade of life from aortic or valvular complications. Prophylactic surgery, medication, and earlier diagnosis and intervention has prolonged life expectancy, but most importantly early suspicion and diagnosis allows Marfan’s to be recognized and worked with earlier, and those (along with those who have milder forms of the disease) have the best prognosis.
