  • The Ability of Disability Insurance - We protect our houses and our cars with insurance, even our pets and our electronics, but are we doing enough to protect our most important resource: our own talents and abilities? Few people realize how completely an accident or illness can derail their dreams, goals and bright future. Even fewer are prepared. John paints a clear picture of the kind of resources one needs to truly recover, physically, emotionally, and spiritually from a traumatic illness or injury. Through personal storytelling and experience, Nichols shares a powerful real-life story on the value of disability insurance, an impactful wake-up call and a personal testimonial on the ability to overcome adversity to capturing your dreams and goals through daily victories.
